Today I was thinking in particular to the recent change in which our Prophet Thomas S. Monson has called for additional missionaries and the missionary age has been lowered.
Tonight I was thinking about a recent change in the Church in which the missionary age has been lowered. There has been an enormous amount of young people who have served in their papers to serve.
It made me think about the youth of the church in these time how they are much like the stripling warriors in the Book of Mormon.
Like the stripling warriors, the youth are fighting a battle, but one of a different kind. Like the striplings warriors they have been taught by their mothers (and fathers) and they know what they have been taught is true so they have answered the call of the Prophet to serve. What an interesting time in the history of the gospel this is turning out to be.
