Lesson 20: My Soul Is Pained No More


To encourage us to continually apply the principle of repentance, become converted, and share the gospel.


Mosiah 25

Limhi’s people and Alma’s people gather in the land of Zarahemla with the people of Mosiah. Limhi and his people are baptized. King Mosiah authorizes Alma to organize the Church of God throughout the land of Zarahemla.

Mosiah 26: 27:1-7 Many Church members are led into sin by unbelievers. The Lord tells Alma that those who repent shall be forgiven, but those who do not repent shall not be numbered among the people of the Church. Mosiah issues a proclamation forbidding believers and unbelievers from persecuting each other.

Mosiah 27:8–31: Alma 36:6-23 Alma the Younger and the four sons of Mosiah seek to destroy the Church of God. In answer to the prayers of their fathers and other Church members, an angel appears to them. Alma the Younger and the sons of Mosiah are converted. Alma the Younger testifies of his conversion.

Mosiah 27:32 –28:20

Alma 36:24 Alma the Younger and the sons of Mosiah dedicate themselves to preaching the gospel.
