Evans rejoices in the fact that missionaries are now being sent to preach to the Navajo Indians. The Navajo have many legends that are similar to biblical myths such as the flood, and Jonah in the great fish. Many have tried to determine the origin of the Native Americans. The Book of Mormon gives the answer that they descend from Lehi, a Jew from Jerusalem.
