Missionary age soon to be 16yrs old!

Recommended Posts

Elder Renlund spoke to a group of us recently and talked about all the changes that have happened in the Church over the past 18 months.
He mentioned that soon, the age for males wanting to serve a mission would be moving to 16yrs old. He stated the following two reasons for the change to 16:

1. 16 years old boys "think they know everything"
2. Their mothers would be happy to see them leave the house at that age.

This was a JOKE shared by the Apostle.

I find the fastest way to get a 16-year-old to stop thinking they know everything is to not give them a drivers license.  There's nothing more deflating than telling your mother off then having to beg her to drive you to meet your friends at the theater in the minivan.

The downside is, you have to drive the kid everywhere. Cure worse than disease?

"Mom, can you drive me to the movies?"  "No."

It would be much more effective saying "no" while you're doing this:
