Sisters Serving Missions
“Regarding single sisters serving as missionaries: We need some young women. They perform a remarkable work. They can get in homes where the elders cannot. But it should be kept in mind that young sisters are not under obligation to go on missions. They should not feel that they have a duty comparable to that of young men, but some will wish to go. If so, they should counsel with their bishop as well as their parents.” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “To the Bishops of the Church,” Worldwide Leadership Training)
“A word to you young sisters: while you do not have the same priesthood responsibility as do the young men to serve as full-time missionaries, you also make a valuable contribution as missionaries, and we welcome your service.” (President Thomas S. Monson, As We Meet Together Again, Oct. 2010)
