I recently heard about a fun feature on the Church’s web site www.mormon.org They have an area where you can chat live online with a real missionary. I thought I’d check it out, so I clicked on the link and instantly received a greeting from a guy named Josiah. He was very polite and friendly and helped answer some questions I had about submitting referrals online. The conversation occurred in a pop-up window and it was really cool to know someone from the Church office building was sitting there typing just to little ‘ole me!
If you haven’t visited this website for awhile, be sure to swing by soon and take another peek. It is extremely easy to navigate and has tons of great information to share with your non-member friends. Anyone can request a visit from missionaries anywhere in the world. Visitors on the site can also request a free Bible or Book of Mormon, as well as click on a link that allows them to read the scriptures online.
If your computer has a Flash player you can watch several video clips on various gospel subjects, as well as hear testimonies from members of the Church. What a great resource this web site is for us to use as members of the Church! When you share a Pass-Along Card with a non-member they will be directed to this web site. It’s so easy! I keep a bunch of those cards in my car and purse, so I’ll be able to share the gospel at any time in a split second. Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Twelve Apostles encouraged all members to “carry a packet of these attractive pass-along cards and give them to persons, even casual acquaintances.” (”Sharing the Gospel,” Ensign, Nov. 2001, 9.)
I love the scripture in Doctrine and Covenants 24:12 which says “And at all times, and in all places, he shall open his mouth and declare my gospel as with the voice of a trump, both day and night.” With a simple click of a mouse the gospel can be shared!
