The Lord told his people in the Old World that He had "other sheep" that He would gather together into "one fold" with "one shepherd." When He came to the Americas, he told the Nephites that they were among these "other sheep." When one reads the New Testament with Christ's statement to the Nephites in mind, it becomes clear that gathering these "other sheep" from the Ten Tribes was a key part of His ministry in the Old World as well.
