SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Jason W. Turley and Steve C. Pinegar both
returned missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have formed a new web site. The website, "called2serve.com"
is designed for those who are planning for future missions, those who
have returned and the families and friends of missionaries who are in
The site offers, at no charge, 300-400 pages of quotes from general
authorities on missionary work. Also parents and friends
of the missionaries can, again at no cost, post correspondence, photographs
and more on the web page.
"Everyone can go to one central location, find out how (the
missionary's) doing, has he been transferred, etc.," Turley
"We are finding we can link families, so extended family can be
involved in the life of a missionary."
Visitors to the site can also click into "Missionary
Marketplace" and send the missionary a new white shirt or a plate of cookies. Such sales help defray the costs of running Called2serve.com.
