Abish, the servant of the Lamanite queen, was one of the most important missionaries in the Book of Mormon. She was a “member missionary” who took advantage of a prime opportunity to share the gospel with her neighbors. When Abish saw that her queen had fallen to the earth, she thought that they were communicating with divine beings, as this was a common practice among Ancient American shamans. So she got everyone together to see what had happened, thinking this would convert them to the Lord. Her actions helped huge numbers of Lamanites to come into the church.
