Latter-day Prophets (Children’s #134)


Mosiah 20:21


  • King Noah found out about Alma and his people.  He sent his soldiers to kill them, but they escaped into the wilderness after Heavenly Father warned Alma.
  • The people were angry that King Noah wanted to kill some of their friends, so they began to threaten the wicked king.  Gideon chased King Noah and was about to kill him up on a high tower, but the king saw the Lamanites coming to attack them.
  • Gideon let King Noah go, and King Noah convinced his priests many men to run into the wilderness with him, leaving women and children behind.  The men who left got angry, and they burned King Noah like King Noah burned Abinadi.  The priests got scared and ran away.
  • After the Lamanites came, Noah’s son Limhi became the king, and he was righteous.  Both Limhi’s people and Alma’s people who had fled ended up being in bondage to the Lamanites.
  • They were not allowed to pray, and they were treated meanly.  Eventually, each group was able to escape with Heavenly Father’s help and go join King Benjamin and his people.
  • We’re going to talk about each of these groups the rest of this week.
  • When Abinadi was captured by Kin gNoah, he prophecied that King Noah would die the same way as he would and that the people would be captured by the Lamanites, but no one believed him.  Later in Mosiah 20:21, Gideon would say that all of Abinadi’s words had come to pass.
  • The words of the prophets will always be fulfilled, no matter how hard it can be to believe it.

Faith (Children’s #96)


Mosiah 19–24 chapter headings; Mosiah 21:16


  • After the Lamanites came, Noah’s son Limhi became the king, and he was righteous.  Both Limhi’s people and Alma’s people who had fled ended up being in bondage to the Lamanites.
  • They were not allowed to pray, and they were treated meanly.  Eventually, each group was able to escape with Heavenly Father’s help and go join King Benjamin and his people.
  • Even though they were in bondage, they still tried to turn to the Lord and do their best to follow Him.  They also learned to turn to Heavenly Father instead of fighting on their own against the Lamanites.  Only then did they become free.
  • What does it mean to “prosper by degrees”? How can we apply this principle?
  • We will have people treat us meanly sometimes, and we may be stuck with them (like a kid at school or someone at work).  What can we do when those things happen?

Fill a bag with heavy objects (to represent burdens), and invite a child to hold the bag. Explain that when we are sad, sick, or have other troubles, it can feel like carrying something heavy.

Explain that Heavenly Father can make our burdens lighter when we seek His help through prayer, serving others, and so on.
