“Everyone, no matter the age, would benefit to learn how to follow President Monson’s example to minister to the one,” he said. “His lifetime of service is remarkable. President Monson was called as a bishop at age 22 … supervising other leaders who were older than he was at the time. It’s interesting for each of us to consider how we would have fared if we’d been asked to take on that kind of responsibility at that age.  It’s helped me realize that service has less to do with age than with who we are and what we are willing to contribute.”
