Many LDS faithful becoming `digital missionaries'

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been sharing stories of faith and lifestyle on the blogosphere for awhile, now some are taking it one step further. They call themselves "digital missionaries" and hope to reach out to people who have questions about their church.

Alan Osmond says even as a singer, he was serving a musical mission for his faith. Now he's a Latter-day Saint digital missionary.

Alan and his wife, Suzanne, are on InternetMTC.org. The site includes Janice Kapp Perry, the singing group One Clear Voice, and is operated by Gospel Ideals International with Strategic Partners, Scot and Maurine Proctor -- the founders of Meridian Magazine.

"It's a way for LDS people to share their testimonies with the world," Alan says. "I get calls and e-mails from Tokyo and Hong Kong, Singapore … over in Wales they're writing me because that's where our ancestors are from, and England. And it's just a matter of sitting down and sharing what you feel."
