High-speed Internet coming to 85 percent of meetinghouses

Let me start with a personal story. I was subbing in nursery just this last Sunday and was set to teach the lesson on “I Will Love Others.” It suggested that I tell/read the New Testament story “The Good Samaritan.” I thought, why read it, when the Mormon Messages Channel has that wonderful set of “New Testament Stories” on video, including the Good Samaritan.

But, my meetinghouse has no available wireless Internet access. I was able to get around that, however, since I live close enough to the church that I went outside with my laptop, accessed my encrypted wireless, downloaded the video, and then watched the children watch with rapt attention to this important scriptural story so very well told via video.

Moral of the story, as I walked out of the church house, I wished for like the thousandth time, that our meetinghouse had accessible wireless Internet.
