“It has scarcely been one year since I announced the lowering of the age of missionary service.  Since that time the number of full-time missionaries serving has increased from 58,500 in October 2012 to 80,333 today. What a tremendous and inspiring response we have witnessed!” (President Thomas S. Monson, October 2013 Conference)

President Monson talked about it in conference, the significant increase in the number of those serving full-time missions.  Others are talking about it as well.  The increased number of missionaries was addressed in the Washington Post. More Mormons on a mission (washingtonpost.com, by Michael Otterson, October 7, 2013).

Many have heard about the increased number of missionaries.  We get to serve with them.  They are inspiring.  There are nearly 250 missionaries in our mission.  Here are some we have worked with recently (we really, really like these people).
