When Mason Lewis Bailey of Richfield heard in 2012 that the LDS Church would allow eligible young men to serve missions at age 18, he was elated.
"I'm putting in. I'm going on my mission," he told family members.
His uncle, Rex Persons, said their home was full of people the day Bailey opened his call to serve in the Sweden Stockholm Mission.
"He wanted to go. You could feel it in his spirit, and you could see it in his person," said his bishop, Corey Winkel of the Richfield 16th Ward.
