Season 4 Episode 26 The Mission to the Lamanites


This is the story of the first mission to the Lamanites in 1830.


It was September 1830 when Joseph Smith received a revelation that we now know as DC 28. In that revelation the Lord says to Oliver Cowdery, “And now behold I say unto you that you shall go unto the Lamanites and preach my Gospel unto them and inasmuch as they receive thy teachings thou shalt cause my church to be established among them.” This would prove to be the first missionary call of its kind—to a specific place for an extended period of time. And that is our story.
