“Nephi and Lehi in Prison,” Friend, Oct. 2012, 35 Nephi and Lehi in Prison You can read this story in Helaman 5:20–52. Illustrations by Val Chadwick Bagley Nephi and Lehi were missionaries who taught the gospel to Nephites and Lamanites. Nephi and Lehi baptized many people. Some Lamanites did not like Nephi and Lehi. Some Lamanites put Nephi and Lehi in prison. They did not have food for many days. Some Lamanites wanted to hurt Nephi and Lehi, but a circle of fire protected Nephi and Lehi. The prison began to shake. A dark cloud came over the prison. The Lamanites were afraid. A voice told the Lamanites to repent and to not hurt Nephi and Lehi. The faces of Nephi and Lehi shone in the darkness. They were talking to angels. The Lamanites prayed and repented, and the dark cloud disappeared. The Lamanites looked up and saw angels. These Lamanites were happy. Some Lamanites went with Nephi and Lehi to help teach the gospel to other Nephites and Lamanites.
