Preparation. Prayerfully study 1 Nephi 1–2. Then study the lesson and decide how you want to teach the children the scripture account. THE PROPHET. A lmustafa, the chosen and the beloved, who was a dawn unto his own day, had waited twelve years in the city of Orphalese for his ship that was to return and bear him back to the isle of his birth..
