    Interesting topic: my 15 year old son, who is not too excited about a mission has to prepare a lesson for tomorrow. He asked me what he should teach and I said "about serving a mission, there may be others who are not sure about it. The lesson in the manual pounded Pres. Kimball "Every young man should serve a mission". Well, one with a testimony and good health, the lesson specified! I am glad I went, and my dear hubby served too.

    Dear sfcretdennis: Steve Young did NOT serve a mission. He went home for Christmas his freshman year intending to put his papers in a go. He was told in a blessing by his Bishop that he was not to go on a mission, but was to return to BYU and play football.

    Each individual needs to be on the path that the Lord has for him/her. Some are to serve two-year missions and some are to take another path. It is not for us to judge that path if the Lord has designated otherwise.

    And yet, BYU's quarterbacks (at least those who start more than 1 or 2 games in their career) seem to not go on missions.
