First Presidency Encourages More Missionaries to Use iPads

More missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be using digital devices as they preach the gospel in the United States, Canada, Japan and western Europe. The First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are expanding the use of mobile devices following a successful pilot program that has been in place since last fall involving 6,500 missionaries in 30 missions in the United States and Japan. Missionaries are equipped with specially configured iPad minis for studying and teaching the gospel.

Church leaders will also implement online proselyting in the United States, Canada, Japan and western Europe following a test in those areas for more than a year.
