Most young men don't have that particular temptation to consider when it is time to serve a mission for the Lord, but there is always something. Whether it is a girlfriend, a job, a car, schooling or fear or any number of other things, there is always something that will try to keep a young man from serving a mission. I've talked to a number of men as they made their decision and they have something to keep them rooted to home and away from the great learning and opportunities that a mission brings. So it is always fun to see the young men make a good choice and follow the voice of the prophet and to serve.
