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, "" 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 field.

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 said.

"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
