Missionary preparation: Young Men general president answers questions about new policy

On Oct. 6, President Thomas S. Monson announced in general conference that young men throughout the Church could begin full-time missionary service at the age of 18.
Following that historic announcement, Church News staff writer Jason Swensen posed a series of questions about the new policy to Brother David L. Beck, Young Men general president.
