Alma 35

  9 And he breathed out many threatenings against them. And now the people of Ammon did not fear their words; therefore they did not cast them out, but they did receive all the poor of the Zoramites that came over unto them; and they did anourish them, and did clothe them, and did give unto them lands for their inheritance; and they did administer unto them according to their wants.

This is a wonderful example of true Christian love and charity. The people of Ammon were outcasts from their own people. They received and ministered to the Zoramites who were outcasts from their own people. The trials we face in life can help us develop great empathy for the plight of others and develop in us the finer virtues of compassion and charity.
