“I did not hear a voice,” President Ballard says in the video. “I did not see any angels. But I had an impact within my bosom, within my heart, that has never left me.”

“I am eternally thankful for the shaping experience I had as a young missionary in England, because it taught me what it feels like to experience the Lord’s guiding hand in my life. Today, 71 years later, I can boldly testify that it is a privilege for us to be able to “hear Him” in our modern world. May we each strive for quiet moments, free from distraction, to feel the presence of the Lord in our lives.”
