First Sister Missionaries (English) 22 Sep 2002
"Inez Knight and Lucy Jane (Jennie) Brimhall were the first single, official, proselyting lady missionaries in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They were set apart in Provo, Utah, April 1, 1898, and began the sister missionary force as we know it today.

"They left April 2, 1898, for Liverpool, England, with a group of other missionaries. They traveled by train for seven days to Philadelphia where they boarded a ship, arriving in Liverpool April 22.

"Serving in Oldham, located in northwestern England, the sisters were a unique sight. At the first meeting they attended, it is recorded that the hall was crowded and the listeners intent. It was a “novel spectacle” to see two young and innocent girls, whose appearance alone stood for modesty and virtue.

"Their words were spoken with intelligence and sincerity as they testified of the divine blessings of Mormonism, declaring that it had made them what they were, and that they were sent forth to bear witness of its truth. The testimonies of these sister missionaries became a inspiration to many, historian Orson F. Whitney said.

"These two young women started a legacy that would only grow in numbers."

From Sisters in the gospel by Alissa Skinner, BYU Idaho Scroll, Setember 17, 2002.
