Sidenote: a moon
I really admire Lachoneus. He was a fantastic leader! Mormon tells us that he "was a just man, and could not be frightened by the demands and threatenings of a robber" (3 Nephi 3:12), but inspired his people to unite, to repent, and to look to the true source of salvation. We also know that he knew how to delegate, and that he stayed strong under the immense pressure of governing a compressed and people during the 7+ years that they were "besieged" by the Gadianton robbers. But I really want to focus on his ability to inspire. He let his light shine, and it was a light that led his followers to Christ, the source of all light and truth. I hope that I can be a leader like that in the Lord's kingdom.
