Sister Emmilie Buchanan: Online Proselyting in Montana

 “I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I have been called of him, to declare his word, among his people that they might have everlasting life.” I have been called to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Montana Billings Mission. Little did I know that among the open fields, mountainous ranges, and big skies of Montana, my call would extend to the realm of facebook and blogspot. Indeed, I am an online missionary.

My name is Sister Emmilie Buchanan. About a month ago I began online proselyting. This includes spending an hour a day online, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the medium of social networks, and blogs. We live in an exciting time. Truly, the glorious gospel is sweeping the whole earth.

As a missionary, my purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ, by helping the receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. Now, we get to extend that invitation to the whole world! 

As an online missionary, I write blogs about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the power of the Atonement of Christ, and my testimony of the Restoration of His Gospel. Also, I communicate with God’s children via facebook and answer their questions about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as teach them of our basic beliefs. Indeed, the “truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly and independent, until it has swept every country, visited every climb and sounded in every ear…” The internet is helping this vision and dream to be accomplished.

I testify that this is the Lord’s work, and that his church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true, and was restored to the earth by a modern prophet. How great is our joy!
