LDS Online Missionaries: Florida Jacksonville Mission

I noticed 21 November 2010 that President James Barry became friends with Michael Hemingway. I figured he was about to become active in the pilot program and sure enough he and Elder Justin Failner put up their Facebook pages. A few more missionaries joined shortly after. I am sure a several more might come on board.

Earlier I wrote about the New York Rochester Mission being the first to pilot LDS missionaries blogging and Facebooking online. A second wave of missionaries from six other missions the California Santa Rosa Mission, Connecticut Hartford Mission, Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission, Michigan Lansing Mission, Pennsylvania Philadelphia Mission, and a special branch of the MTC the Referral Center Mission joined the network. In the third wave the Montana Billings Mission came on board. Now the Florida Jacksonville Mission has entered the pilot. Louisiana Baton Rouge dropped out and only does a Mormon.Org pilot. So the total is back to eight.

I really think the missionaries could use some friends to add on Facebook and to follow their blogs. They definitely need people to comment and get some discussions going. If you want to help in the official effort add them as your friends on both their blogs and Facebook pages. They should have hundreds of friends who comment on their blogs plus if your like me you have dozens of nonmember friends. If you want to help them make the new program successful please participate in their social media experiment then soon we might have thousands of missionaries using social media to convert thousands to Christ. I really think all missionaries and their mission presidents could use some friends right now so add them.

Curious what you guys think of the Kinderhook plates and what you teach investigators about it?
