In yesterday’s post (Getting Up From That Prayer!) I mentioned an idea that came to me (after praying) to use Facebook to share the good news of the gospel in a way that would have a lasting and strong impact on those who read it. I tried the idea and, my friends, if it impacted no one else – it strongly impacted me!
Here was the plan (It was easy! I encourage you to try it too!)
- I private messaged many of my friends who were members of the Church, and asked them if they would like to participate in flooding Facebook with testimonies of the gospel. I told them I would be placing a question on my wall at noon which would say, “If you are Mormon – WHY?” and invited them to share why they love our faith! I then asked if they would hit the share button and start the same question on their wall. The goal would be to share with our non member friends, the joy, truthfulness, and our love for the gospel! Many were eager to participate!
- Noon came. I posted the question. I started off the comments with my own brief testimony. I then just sat back, waited, and watched as little by little, testimonies started coming in. I was filled with the Spirit as I read each one! I also watched as they shared the post on their own walls and restart similar conversations!
Here are the results so far, the responses continue to come in – even as I type:
If you are Mormon – WHY?
- GETTING UP FROM THAT PRAYER!
- SALT MY POPCORN AND TURN OFF THE LIGHT!
