1 June 2015, Excerpt 1 from Weekly Email

by Elder Morgan

One of the coolest things about getting iPads in the mission is that it isn't just for those we teach. They give us iPads to better ourselves and our use of technology. Through having iPads, the church is trying to teach missionaries how they can safely use them, use them with good etiquette, and use them in a disciplined, productive way. The church produced a pamphlet which  all missionaries who use iPads receive. The pamphlet lists safeguards on how to properly use technology. As we pay attention to those safeguards, we create habits for proper technology use that will last us the remainder of our lives. Though there are many temptations and evil things that can be done with technology, we learn how to avoid those and use it for good. We also learn how to use it to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, and we can share the gospel, using technology, for the rest of our lives.

iPads are great devices to use for studying. The Gospel Library app has so many fantastic features to use: marking, tagging, note taking, linking. It's great. If you have it, I encourage you to play around with it. If you don't have it, get it. iPads are also great for playing music. There are only a few websites I can use, but on there is a youth site. That youth site has a bunch of EFY and Mutual music that my companion and I listen to a lot.
