In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, all worthy and able young men are asked to serve a mission. It is their choice if they accept or not. Young ladies are not under the same obligation to serve, but may go if they would like to. Sariah has decided that she would like to serve a mission, and we are SOOO excited and happy for her. She has an awesome blog post about it, if you would like to read about it first hand: http://sariahmarie.blogspot.com/2013/12/im-going-on-mission.html .
