Church News: Brother Beck, what was your reaction when you heard President Monson's announcement that young men would be able to begin missionary service at 18?
On Oct. 6, President Thomas S. Monson announced in general conference that young men throughout the Church could begin full-time missionary service at the age of 18. Following that historic announcement, Church News staff writer Jason Swensen posed a series of questions about the new policy to Brother David L. Beck, Young Men general president.
