Passage: Alma 12:20 - Alma 12:30

20 And it came to pass that the hearts of the sons of Mosiah, and also those who were with them, took courage to go forth unto the Lamanites, to declare unto them the word of God.
21 And it came to pass when they had arrived in the borders of the land of the Lamanites, that they separated themselves, and departed one from another, trusting in the Lord, that they should meet again at the close of their harvest: for they supposed that great was the work which they had undertaken.

29 And Ammon went to the land of Ishmael, the land being called after the sons of Ishmael, who also became Lamanites.
