As you teach Primary 4 Lesson 17: Ammon, a Great Servant keep in the mind the purpose is to encourage sharing the gospel through good example and bearing testimony. 

Use these LDS Doctrinal Flashcards from the Redheaded hostess and take turns practicing to be a missionary. Each child has to explain the card to an "investigator." You could also use this Book of Mormon study packet for this and next week's lesson. 

Use these fun LDS Missionary: Called to Serve candy wrappers from My Computer is My Canvas to bring home the point.

Jumbo size this lesson with these Ammon cut outs from Latter-day Chatter.
