The Stripling Warriors' Missing Fathers

The story of the 2,000 stripling warriors is one of the great Book of Mormon stories. It demonstrates the power of faith, and how God can bless and protect those that serve Him.

I will get on to the point of the post, but first, a brief recap for those unfamiliar with their story:

The disarming missionary Ammon, helped a group of Lamanites come to the knowledge of the gospel. They became known as the "Anti-Nephi-Lehis," or "Ammonites." These converts (and you know we love our converts here on MMM) were so aghast at the lives they had lived to that point, that they repented and made a special covenant with God "that they would never use weapons again for the shedding of man's blood" and that "rather than shed the blood of their brethren, they would give up their own lives.". They were so intent on keeping this covenant, that they buried all their weapons and vowed that they would never fight again.
