Many More Missionaries - But Not That Many More Mormon Converts

LAST YEAR'S HISTORIC INCREASE -- IN MORMON MISSIONARIES -- DID NOT LEAD TO AN IMMEDIATE SPIKE, IN CONVERTS TO THE FAITH.

BUT CHURCH OFFICIALS SAY IT'S STILL TOO EARLY TO DRAW CONCLUSIONS.

THE NUMBER OF LDS MISSIONARIES GREW BY 41 PERCENT LAST YEAR, BUT THE NUMBER OF CONVERTS ONLY INCREASED BY 4 PERCENT.

THE MISSIONARY POOL GREW, AFTER MORMON OFFICIALS LOWERED THE REQUIRED AGE, FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN TO ENTER THE FIELD.
