What are missionaries doing online?: Elder Colby LDS Online Missionary

For the longest time missionaries have been told not to get on the Internet. It has been something that has been taboo. But now there are quite a few missionaries online. (I don't know exactly how many.) So what are we doing? We are taking back the Internet from all the filth that is on it by promoting Christ centered blogs and conversations; and inviting people to come to Christ and learn about His restored Gospel. This is in an effort to stay the tide of negative, and frankly disgusting, content on the Internet. While we can get rid of it, we can defiantly make it easier to find uplifting and spiritually filling content for the starving souls of this world. I have been surprised at how much of a positive response we have found and how much the online community wants the truths of the Gospel. As online missionaries we are available to chat and answer questions, to help people learn about the Gospel, and to try our best to strengthen people’s faith in Christ. We are on blogs, Facebook, and Twitter, and we are eager to help you on your personal journey to find the Savior. If you have any questions you can find me on Facebook.

What an interesting concept! It would be nice to have uplifting material to read online. I have the same idea in a temporal way- I've set up an online store for LDS Sister Missionaries to provide inexpensive, modest clothing.
