Joseph Walker in the Deseret News wrote an interesting piece on the historic missionary meeting held Sunday entitled "Been There Done That." I was a bit miffed that Eric Whitlock said they had no help that they had to figure it out on their own. I helped dozens of missionaries to put up their Facebook page and Blogs on Blogspot. Also the coordinator Michael Hemingway in the missionary department answered any concerns. Gideon Burton a professor at BYU worked with several missionaries also. No one could tell them what to write that is true but the reality was that the early ones who were trained trained those who came after. They weren't totally alone. Some missions like California Santa Rosa had Social Media zone leaders. All of us are still available for the current missionaries to contact us. I am available at firstname.lastname@example.org if any parent or missionary wants to know how to put up their social media FB account with a networked blog feeder and tweeter accounts. Also on this blog are detailed instructions for putting up a Blogspot.com blog. It was overwhelming helping 160 missionaries. Can I help 70,000 missionaries by myself no but I can help the handful that need help.A major point is that each succeeding wave of missionaries trained each other.
