    You guys are making me cry again, dang it! My son is in the MTC right now, as a 19 year old, of course. I feel so strongly that these young people are here 'for such a time as this' They are so powerful and so full of light!! I am excited for the new ARMY to take their places in this great work!!

    Nice article! I loved hearing your personal story. Our daughter called her bishop between the Saturday morning and afternoon sessions of Conference. She met with her bishop the very next morning (9 am Conference Sunday). By Tuesday morning she was filling out her online papers, and had completed everything by the end of the week - miraculously including doctor and dentist appointments. She submitted her papers electronically in just 6 days. It's been an exciting and breathtaking whirlwind! There is such a sense of urgency inside of her to go "RIGHT NOW" and serve! I'm hearing similar stories and comments from the youth and their parents in our area: "urgency", "driven", "anxiousness", "propelled". Just today it's been reported that THOUSANDS of papers have already been submitted in just 2 weeks. Such marvelous and mighty things are happening! I can hardly imagine what all of this will lead to, but it's truly an amazing time to be alive.

    When I heard the voice of the Prophet say the new age requirements. I now will have three sons out on a mission with in the year. What a great blessing to be able to do that.
