Response to Mormon Missionary Age Announcement Remains Enthusiastic and Unprecedented
Mormon Newsroom ^ | January 7, 2013 | News Release

Posted on 01/09/2013 7:56:48 AM PST by greyfoxx39

Candace Richins was in the midst of her freshman season with Utah State University’s women’s volleyball team when the announcement came from Church President Thomas S. Monson women can serve missions at age 19 and men at 18. Although thrilled about the possibility of serving a mission earlier, Richins — a possible starter on the team in 2013 — worried because her scholarship and spot on the team would not be guaranteed if she left.

“I felt very impressed that I needed to go and I needed to go now,” says Richins, who will begin missionary service in March in Stockholm, Sweden. “So I decided right then and there that I would go and it didn't matter what I was leaving behind; I would just go and serve the Lord. It definitely was a hard decision because it not only affects me, it affects my coach, my teammates, the whole school. … But at the same time, I knew that it was right and that what I was doing was the correct thing and that everyone would be blessed for it.”

Like Richins’ experience, the decision to drop everything is not easy for any young man or woman in the Church. Nevertheless, the response to the 6 October announcement remains enthusiastic as unprecedented numbers of young men and women continue to fill out missionary applications.

“I've never seen anything affect a generation of young people like what President Monson announced the Saturday morning of general conference,” says Elder David F. Evans, executive director of the Church’s Missionary Department and member of the Seventy. “What we're seeing is just an absolute overwhelming response from this generation to the invitation of the Lord and His prophet to rise up and go and serve your fellow man and preach the gospel.”

In the weeks following the missionary age announcement, the Church reported that missionary applications had increased dramatically (from 700 applications per week to 4,000), with women comprising more than half of the applicants. While the number of post-announcement applications is still double what it has been in the past, the total number of men and women who have applied since October is now about equal. Prior to the announcement, approximately 15 percent of missionaries were young women.

What the Church is doing to accommodate more missionaries

The Church operates 347 missions around the world, each with an average of 170 missionaries. To accommodate this new influx of missionaries, capacity for many missions will rise to 250 missionaries. When missions exceed that number, new missions will likely be created as needed.

Speaking to missionaries at the MTC on Christmas Day, Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles dispelled false rumors that missions were opening in areas not currently open to missionary work. “Such rumors are absolutely false. Refute them!” Elder Nelson said. "Leaders of this Church enter countries new to the Church through the front door. We do not go in through the back door or via the alley. Our relationships are based on honesty, openness, integrity and complete compliance with local law."

Mission presidents are preparing for increased numbers by training their missionaries who are already serving so they an train incoming missionaries. Mission presidents are also looking at how they can best deploy missionaries within each mission’s boundaries. While the responsibility placed on mission presidents will increase, Elder Evans notes that it won’t be overwhelming.

“We’ve had many missions that have been 220 to 250 missionaries over the history of the modern Church in different places,” he says.

Because the Church has allowed some missionaries in 48 countries to serve at 18 for the past several years, the greatest surge of missionaries from the October announcement will come from countries where the younger age limit was not in place — including the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada and Japan.

Adjustments will also be made at each of the Church’s 15 missionary training centers (MTCs). Training time for same-language and foreign-language missionaries will be reduced by 30 percent — those not learning a language will be at the MTC for two weeks instead of three, and those learning a language will have two weeks cut from their MTC stay.

Two recent developments make reduced MTC time possible. First, the Church initiated a 12-week in-field missionary training program a year ago — before anyone knew of the coming age announcement — in which much of the training that occurs at the MTC is retaught and reinforced in the mission field. Second, the Church initiated a study several months prior to the missionary age announcement that shows that it is possible to improve a missionary’s ability to learn a second language by sending him into the field earlier. These two changes would have occurred with or without the missionary age announcement.

To increase MTC capacity, each training center is maximizing empty space, including putting more bunk beds in each room. For example, the Church’s flagship MTC in Provo, Utah, will increase capacity from 3,000 to 4,800 in the short term. Long-term plans are also being considered. Although in mid-October Church leaders decided to not move forward with the construction of a nine-story building originally proposed for the Provo MTC, plans are still in the works to increase the center’s long-term capacity.

“Not demolishing the buildings that would’ve been demolished to build that nine-story building has proven to be a great blessing in the short term,” Elder Evans says, “because anything we would’ve done would’ve decreased capacity in the short term.”

Although many more missionaries will be at the MTC at one time with the same facilities, Missionary Department managing director Stephen B. Allen says the MTC experience for each missionary will be equally good, if not better.

“[We want] to make sure that the MTC experience for every missionary will be a great experience,” Allen says. “It won’t be a watered-down experience; it won’t be a cheapened experience. It will be a great spiritual learning experience, a time of revelation for those missionaries as they learn how to be missionaries.”

Gratitude for flexibility in university enrollment options

The impact of the missionary age announcement also has a significant impact on enrollment numbers at universities in Utah and elsewhere.

Elder Evans notes that the Church is deeply grateful to university administrators who have taken steps to accommodate young men and women who choose to serve.For example, at the end of November the University of Utah announced a new enrollment deferment policy that allows students to defer the start of their schooling for up to seven semesters. And in October Utah State University appointed a task force that is currently considering strategies the university can implement to best adapt to those who choose to serve a mission.

“The accommodation made by the universities has just been wonderful,” Elder Evans says. “Their willingness to consider the position of the Church and then seek the admission of the young people of the Church with the hope they’ll come back to those institutions after their missions has been very, very gratified, and we would be remiss if we didn’t express appreciation to every university that’s making that effort.”

Richins says her missionary service will help her be a better student when she returns.

“I hope that when I get back I’ll be different, I’ll be changed,” she says. “I’ll work harder, be more diligent in school, develop more of my talents, and I hope that it just develops me more as a person.”

Miranda Rechis, who also has taken advantage of the lower age requirement and will soon be a missionary in Osorno, Chile, agrees. She says missionary service will help her “mature, to be able to take … college seriously” when the mission is over.

More opportunities for missionary service

It’s no secret that many more young women have volunteered for missionary service since 6 October. Church leaders are grateful for their willingness to serve. In a press conference following the announcement, Church apostle Jeffrey R. Holland said he is “absolutely delighted if this change in policy allows many, many more young women to serve,” noting that “those [women] who do serve are stunningly successful.”

Church leaders are also thrilled in general that more of the Church’s young people — men and women — will now be able to serve missions.

“This is an invitation of love from the Lord to this entire generation,” Elder Evans says. “What I would also say is that the scriptures make it clear, and I think the First Presidency and the Twelve have made it clear, … that we are all equal before God."

Mormon missionary blitz taking advantage of Romney's candidacy begins.

Note the emphasis on United Kingdom, the United States, Canada and Japan. Wealthier prospects than in the emerging nations that have been heavily mined in recent years?

A sop to mormon women in an attempt to damp down any rebellion in the female ranks?

IMO, this is the plan that was formulated with the sure expectation that Mitt would now be in control of the US. I will be interested in the amount of lemonade that can be made from the lemons of their defeat.

Actually, it is predicited in the bible that sound doctrine would not last long.

It is also predicted that at the last days God would restore his gospel.

Go figure?

Best two and a half years of my life up to that point. Got out of milking thirty cows, hauling tons of hay and thinning sugar beets on the family farm. And went to Denmark?...Just WOW! Not to mention all the other pleasures. Best part is I figured it all out, but to go home early was just not done.

And the real funny thing is that you get snarky at people who believe that Christ’s salvation is avaialable to all men, irregardless of place or, time.

Actually, I get snarky about people who think "irregardless" is a word putting on airs of intellectual superiority.

If you are desperately trying to insinuate that the Book of Mormon is somehow part of "Christ's plan of salvation," why don't you just come right out and speak that falsehood?

Teppe,
No restoration of the Gospel ever needed - that is a cricket lie by Mormons.

The entire Gospel is in black and white in the Bible for all to see. Always has been.

Christ Himself warned against false christs - like the Mormon created spirit christ.

Not too late for you today. The real Christ died for your sins.

***Actually, it is predicited in the bible that sound doctrine would not last long.****

Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

Gal 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

Gal 1:8 But though we, or an ANGEL FROM HEAVEN, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

I’ll stick with St Paul, not some Johny-come-lately who claims God came down and told him the “right” way.

New so-called “gospels” and “prophets” are a dime a dozen today.

Mark 13:6; 21-22

“Many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and will deceive many. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect—if that were possible. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.”

but for some strange reason that 8 story prison block err dormitory at MTC in provo wont be built after all..

also from a few comments in other places..

This keeps the girls from going to college..

This keeps the boys from looking at foreign girls and getting them pregnant or bringing home undoctrinated wives..

there is the hope that the Mormon boys and the Mormon girls will meet up and marry..

the lower ages...boys straight out of high school, the girls not bothering to go to college for only a few months etc will give the cult more control over the youth and future slaves to the system..

Lots more taxes err club dues err tithes and offerings...

got to feed the coffers and keep the 15 in the rich anbd famouslifestyles they are accustom to err ...

Had a couple of missionaries hit our door last night. My husband answered it. They asked if they could talk with us about Mormonism. My husband said, “No, we’re Lutherans”. They asked if they could pray for us and my husband said, “No, we’re already covered”.

“If you are correct that no restoration was necessary, than why is it predicted in the bible? Duh?”

Why don’t you go ahead and post a Bible citation to back up your claim and then we can discuss it.

Also, explain why a restoration was needed, when the entire Gospel has always been in the Bible.

Thanks

"You actually believe in a God that would condemn these multitudes of his children to Hell, just for living ae wrong time or the wrong place, or both."

I don't believe that but I do believe Christ told us that He preached to those who had died prior to His Crucifixion between the time He died in the flesh and arose in a new glorified body.

Now, given the fact that both Christ and the afterlife we will all experience is outside of time as we experience and understand it, I feel sure Jesus Christ Himself made preached Christ and Him crucified to all those who had died without any knowledge of Him prior to His coming.

Adding to Scripture rather than seeing what can be understood by sticking to examples in Scripture never leads to the Truth and adding to or subtracting from the Scripture always leads to destruction and damnation. Christ as The Word made it clear in many places that there is no time and no space to God.

Therefore Christ Himself preaching to those who were in between heaven and hell until His crucifixion would be more than enough "time" for everyone who ever lived up to that point in our time to hear and either accept or refuse His Grace.

You say I have disdain for Christians. That’s not true. I have never said anything bad or good about anyone’s beliefs or about any religion.

I find it interesting when people get into discussions about religion and I comment on them. It just so happens that the majority of religious discussions are about differing Christian beliefs.
