How can we be engaged in the lives of newcomers with acceptance as fellow citizens in Zion?

Alma 27 recounts the story of Ammon who led a group of war refugees, the poeple of Ammon, to safety. These convert refugees had been enemies to the Nephites but had taken an oath to never again take human life.

The Nephites voted on whether to approve accepting the refugees into their country. Results of the voting:

We will give up the land of Jershon . . . unto our brethren for an inheritance . . . and we will guard them from their enemies with our armies.

Thus in the spirit of Jershon from the loving hearts of the Nephites, the Ammonites lived in the land of Jershon. Later on, Ammonoite youth fought as Helaman's 2,000 Stripling Warriors and won with miraculous power to protect the Nephites liberty under Captain Moroni.

In a how and why response to the church's "I was a Stranger" refugee relief effort, this book offers a collection of firsthand accounts, stories, essays, prophecies, research results, and how-to tips.

As a guide to more cultural and spiritual unity for our time, it invites using kindness to others as the key to reaching out to all in our midst. Providing friendship, education, and mentoring will mitigate the pain of our increasingly contentious world.
