Righteous Use of Technology


Hi everybody! I hope you had a great week!  My week was awesome! We had a sweet lesson with an investigator at our High Priest Group Leader’s house! We watched the 20 minute restoration video and our investigator really liked it! He’s been struggling to read the Book of Mormon so the day before the lesson we told him that he can go online and listen to it. In one day he listened to 1/3 of the Book of Mormon! I love technology!
We also had a sweet lesson over Facebook with the investigator whose daughter had a dream about us! It was a little weird at first but it ended up being a great lesson. She is really excited to learn more about the gospel and has been prepared by the Lord. Going through the hard times is totally worth it when you find someone like this!  So this week I wanted to bare my testimony on using technology to do missionary work. Heavenly Father has given us so many tools to spread the gospel and Satan is working his hardest to get us to misuse them. It’s so easy to just waste time on Facebook and on the Internet.   However these things can also be used to do some much good! We can post scriptures or videos from the church! We can talk to people all around the work about how the gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed us and how it can bless them.  In order to use it properly we have to decide every time we get on the Internet how we are going to us it to do good. It’s not a one time choice. Like reading our scriptures or saying our prays we have to choose to righteously use technology everyday! I know that if we use
these tools that we’ve been given to do good we will all continue to hasten the Lord’s work.
I love you all! Have a great week!
