    We never know when the Lord is going to need us to serve. This article put tears in my eyes. I have been a life long member of the church, and am so grateful for my experiences as a Stake Missionary at the age of 77. The years have quickly passed and even though I am now 88 years old, I can still help anyone to understand the gospel, an inactive member or a non member, with the Lord's help.

    Wow. This is completely relevant to my personal life experience investigating the church and how beautiful it is to learn about this wonderful gospel. Does anyone if there's any chance I could get in contact with her? I'm an 18 year old learning more and more about this church. Basically, in the same situations she was in. I can definitively say Heavenly Father had this message of inspiration for me.

    Great story!

    I have ties to Virginia as my favorite mission companion and dear friend is from the DC area and my youngest son served in the Virginia Richmond Mission just south of this one. Mark Albright and Charles Clawson were also my former Stake President and high council speaking companion, respectively. Wonderful men and examples to me in my life.

    This young woman will no doubt touch many lives. All the best to her as she does so!

    I saw similar miracles happen in my own life as I earnestly sought to know if the missionaries were sharing the truth. It is amazing to me how much Heavenly Father loves us and what can happen when we are willing to act on spiritual promptings!

    Woo hoo on going out to serve! I'm a Pacific NWerner, and we need great missionaries out here. Welcome Sister Denison, and bring rain gear!

    This reminds me so much of 46 years ago when I investogated the Gospel and was baptized. Little over a year later I, too, was on the mission field. I had left, as a lone member in my family, but kept loving them and keeping them as if they had been always LDS. While I was gone both of my sisters joined and my mom was teaching Relief Society even as she was not a member. Four years later she, too, was baptized.
    This 46 years have been absolutely great ... Just like YOU, I did not seek to become a Mormon, but I culd not lie to myself and deny the feelings of comfort and peace and the answers to my prayers.

    Miracles happen every day here in Virginia! The Union Mill Ward has since moved to the Annandale Virginia Stake and is now called the Braddock Ward. It's a wonderful change to bless the lives of Young Adults living in the area making that all important, and difficult, transition from youth to adulthood. Many of those who blessed Sister Denison's life are still here, and they are a blessing to everyone.

    Wish there was a way that I could tell Sister Denison how much I appreciate her sharing this! What a wonderful experience, made better by her willingness to share it with us through media, and even better by her desire to serve a mission! Thank you, Sister Denison, and best wishes to you and to your wonderful family that raised you in such a supportive way! You're a wonderful example to me, a member of the LDS church since birth!
