In the LDS living, there's two faith promoting stories about women who changed the church where they were living. The first one is about a woman from Guatemala who felt the multiple meetings spread through out the day was a hardship on families. Her idea was to consolidate the meetings into one block. This was 1947 and approved by George A Smith~ why it took another 35 years to be fully implemented throughout the church explains how the mighty priesthood really works.
Another lady had immigrated from Germany to Brazil in the 1920s. Her husband wasn't a believer so she wrote a letter to Heber Grant requesting the church to act by sending missionaries or she was going act alone by setting up her own branch. She was credited for getting missionary work started in Brazil in the 1920s. What I found interesting was that her husband who thought the BoM was bunk finally converted 30 years later!
How did this marvelous conversion occur? He suffered a major stroke and was infirmed for the remainder of his life. That's when he converted.
Maybe today's missionaries need to be in action at brain trauma centers?
Interesting that neither of these prophets were attuned to the spirit or bestowed with a magic night pen to make changes in church policy.
