WASHINGTON — In "Preach My Gospel" missionaries of the church are instructed to go "in the power of the ordination wherewith you have been ordained, proclaiming glad tidings of great joy, even the everlasting gospel" (D&C 79:1). As a mission president I see evidence of this power as missionaries in the Washington, D.C. South Mission share with me their experiences in finding new investigators. Experiences like those that follow occur regularly all around the world and provide a glimpse into the special life of a missionary. They are shared here so that others may see the power in the calling of a missionary and the role that prayer and faith have in the finding process. These stories take place in the Washington, D.C. metro area, in northern Virginia.
