After Nephi’s father—the prophet Lehi—told Nephi and his brothers they needed to leave their home and live in the wilderness, Nephi continued to be faithful and obedient. Even though he had many trials, Nephi became a great leader because of his faith in the Lord. Just like Nephi, you will receive blessings from the Lord for being faithful in difficult times.
