Alma's People Are Mistreated But The Lord Lead Them To Zarahemla: Mosiah 24: 8,10,12,13,15-16,18-20

Alma and his people had many adventures together.
 8And now it came to pass that aAmulon  began to exercise bauthority over Alma and his brethren, and began to persecute him, and cause that his children should persecute their children.

Amulon  was the leader of a group of wicked priests.
   9For Amulon knew Alma, that he had been aone of the king’s priests, and that it was he that believed the words of Abinadi and was driven out before the king, and therefore he was wroth with him; for he was subject to king Laman, yet he exercised authority over them, and put btasks upon them, and put ctask-masters over them.
 10And it came to pass that so great were their afflictions that they began to cry mightily to God.
 11And Amulon commanded them that they should stop their cries;  
Amulon yelled, "Stop crying! Whoever calls out to God will be put to death!"
and he aput guards over them to watch them, that whosoever should be found calling upon God should be put to death.
 12And Alma and his people did not raise their voices to the Lord their God, but did pour out their ahearts to him; and he did know the bthoughts of their hearts.
 13And...the voice of the Lord came to them in their afflictions, saying: Lift up your heads and be of good comfort, for I know of the covenant which ye have made unto me; and I will covenant with my people and deliver them out of bondage.
 14And I will also ease the aburdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage...
 15And now it came to pass that the burdens which were laid upon Alma and his brethren were made light; yea, the Lord did astrengthen them... and they did submit cheerfully and with cpatience to all the will of the Lord. great was their faith and their patience that the voice of the Lord came unto them again, saying: Be of good comfort, for on the morrow I will deliver you out of bondage.
 17And he said unto Alma: Thou shalt go before this people, and I will go awith thee and deliver this people out of bbondage.
 18Now it came to pass that Alma and his people in the night-time gathered their flocks together, and also of their grain; yea, even all the night-time were they gathering their flocks together.

19 And in the morning the Lord caused a adeep sleep to come upon the Lamanites, yea, and all their task-masters were in a profound sleep.
20 And Alma and his people departed into the wilderness; and when they had traveled all day

they pitched their tents in a valley, Pictures of Death Valley Badlands and they called the valley Alma, because he led their way in the wilderness.
