Nephi and His Ship Building Expedition 

1 Nephi 18:1; “And it came to pass that they did worship the Lord, and did go forth with me; and we did work timbers of curious workmanship. And the Lord did show me from time to time after what manner I should work the timbers of the ship.”

Today I was wondering.  How did Nephi and company get enough timber to build a ship in Egypt or that part of the Middle East when timber was so difficult to come by? They were in a desert then just as it’s a desert now.  There were little to no trees.

Maybe God sprouted some trees in the area for Nephi? It’s curious indeed!
