You are probably here because of the online missionary work post on our site. I hope you are already anxiously engaged in this work. I also hope you know what to look out for as you do online missionary work. Here are 4 reasons why online missionary work is SO important:
1. The Internet is Powerful
The internet is very powerful. Duh. I don’t need to convince you of this, but check this out:
There are now over 2.4 billion internet users in the world. In 2000, there were only 360 million. The internet is incredibly pervasive today. Duh.
4.7 billion searches happen on Google alone every day. Almost half of those happen from a mobile device...
2. To Hasten the Work, Truth needs to “Go Viral”
All the above is pretty interesting information and will likely be completely different in just a few months. 9 The point is: hundreds of millions of people are on the internet everyday. What if some of those (say 10% of all internet users) came in contact with truth through the Church or some other member-created site or post? Think of it. 10% of 2.4 billion. 240,000,000 contacts!
