A Comprehensive List of all of the Rumors About the Upcoming General Conference


*Disclaimer: These are all of the rumors that we have been hearing about concerning the upcoming General Conference this weekend. But they are precisely that, rumors. Most (and I suspect all) will not come to fruition. If there are going to be large changes that are announced this weekend, I suspect that they will be none of the rumors that we have listed below.*

1. Mission lengths will become optional for younger missionaries as they are for senior couples. Anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.

2. Change to endowment to make it shorter.
