The Lord commanded the brother of Jared and the Jaredites to build barges that they could use to travel across the ocean to the promised land. The barges were dark inside. The brother of Jared took 16 stones to the top of a mountain and prayed that the Lord would touch the stones so they could light the barges. Because the brother of Jared had great faith, the Lord touched the stones and showed Himself to the brother of Jared. The Lord also blesses us when we show faith.
