Back by popular demand is an updated version of an old Sticks of Joseph classic – Ammon defends the sheep!
Ammon was an awesome missionary in the Book of Mormon, and I wonder if, in a modern context, if we would have the guts and the dedication to do the same. So, lets explore this idea…
Say you wanted to preach the Gospel REAL bad. The only thing on earth that you wanted to do is introduce the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people who haven’t heard it, but beyond that, take it to our enemies – say… Al Qaeda. So, you take a trip to Afghanistan and walk into an Al Qaeda camp and get locked in handcuffs and taken to whoever is in charge of Al Qaeda at the time. This guy asks what you are doing, and you simply told him that you just wanted to be their servant, even if it was until the end of your days. Can you imagine?? Would you be considered un-patriotic? A traitor?
After a lengthy conversation, this Al Qaeda leader likes you so much that he offers you his daughter for marriage. Nice offer, but you decline – after all, you’re on a mission. So you go and tend to the flocks, but they are getting scattered and stolen by a rival Afghani sect. So, you end up gunning the robbers down, and shooting off their arms. After that, you go tend to the horses while Al Qaeda big man’s chin hits the floor hearing how awesome of a servant you are. He brings you in, thinking you could be a God, but you take the opportunity to preach the Gospel, which leads to many branches of Al Qaeda to become members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Pretty awesome thought, eh? Well, that’s basically the story of Ammon in a modern context.
