1st Nephi 2 : 5

And it came to pass that the Lord commanded my father, even in And he came down by the borders near the shore of the Red Sea; and he traveled in the wilderness in the borders which are nearer the Red Sea; and he did travel in the wilderness with his family, which consisted of my mother, Sariah, and my elder brothers, who were Laman, Lemuel, and Sam.dream, that he should take his family and depart into the wilderness.

At first it didn’t seem like Dad had a plan. We all got worried when we arrived at the Red Sea and stopped. But after a family prayer, Dad said we should follow the shore southward. It was nice traveling near water; at least when we got hot we could take a dip. Of course Laman had to push me off my camel into the drink a few times to assert his older-brotherliness. In the beginning it was actually quite exciting, just Dad, Mom (her name is Sariah- but if I call her that I get smacked), Laman, Lemuel, Sam, me and our little sisters out exploring the unknown on a family adventure.
