Missionary age lowered

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced it is lowering the age of full-time missionary service to 18 for men (down from 19) and 19 for women (down from 21). The church hopes the change will dramatically increase the ranks of its missionaries, currently more than 58,000 worldwide. It will also bring sweeping changes to an array of areas — from university sports recruiting to college admissions, family finances to dating and marriage patterns, missionary preparation and training to career planning.
