Our missionaries have spent weeks training to proselyte on Facebook. We are one of the missions that is being used to be the lead
in this new kind of missionary work.
The weeks of training are because proselyting on facebook
is quite different than using Facebook socially.
The missionaries are being taught that
because they are missionaries - and Mormons,
whatever they put on or like on facebook represents their beliefs.
They are being taught that facebook can be a way to reach others.
They are being taught to be responsible and wise in what they post
and in how much time they spend on their electronics.
Wouldn't it be nice if all of us could have this training.
The Lord wants us to use social media to help bring people to Christ, and that is what our missionaries are trying to learn to do.
Watch for missionary facebook posting. Several missions are involved in this new project, and soon most missions will have Ipads.
