It just brings back the point that so much of the stability, survival and financing of the church and its members rested on the shoulders of women. This is such a powerful part of church history, such a powerful part of visiting teaching.
I love that you use the word ministry to describe Visiting Teaching. I didn’t really understand that until I was pondering Sheri Dew’s recent talk at TOFW about how LDS women serve in capacities that requires ordination in other traditions. I used to want to be a minister of another church before I joined the LDS church, and I felt a degree of loss thinking that I would not have the same degree of influence as I would have as an ordained reverend. The lay church however is inspired and I love that in this sense, every member of the church acts as a minister to other church members. And I saved a whole lot in school loans. (kidding!) I feel like I missed out on the training still and I hope that the church will give higher quality training to home and visiting teachers so that our “ministry” can be more skilled and appropriate for those we serve and counsel.

The enemy knows he can accomplish more by infiltrating fromwithin than from without; sabotage rather than direct attack. They areimposters. And there are many more of Satan’s ministers today than God’sministers because apostasy abounds in these end times.
