Lesson Follow-up

 I'm a Mormon. 

In Jill's lesson Be Thou an Example of the Believers, by Russell M. Nelson, last Sunday she wanted to emphasize creating a profile on as a way to do missionary work.
Now in this day of the Internet, there are new and exciting ways you can do missionary work. You can invite friends and neighbors to visit the new Web site. If you have blogs and online social networks, you could link your sites to And there you can create your own personal profile.
Each profile includes an expression of belief, an experience, and a testimony. Because this is a new feature, most of these profiles are available in English. Profiles in other languages will follow.
These profiles can have a profound influence for good.

Two months ago a young man named Zac—a freshman in college—saw an ad for on television in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He connected with the Web site and was intrigued by the profiles of Church members. At our Web site he found the link that informed him where he could attend church. The next Sunday, dressed in a white shirt and tie, he attended church, was introduced to members of the ward, and enjoyed all three hours of meetings. He was invited to a member’s home for dinner, followed by his first missionary lesson. In less than two weeks, he was baptized and confirmed as a member of the Church. 21 Welcome, Zac! (He is listening.)
The thought of doing missionary work every day may seem a challenge but we can take one small step and post our testimony online at We can use our blogs and facebook pages to let people know what we believe. How we talk about our lives in these public forums may have an influence for good.
