Easter Weekend Internet Initiative Invites Testimony of Jesus Christ

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are enthusiastically joining an Internet initiative to express their belief in Jesus Christ and what He means to them. Easter is the time Christians celebrate the Resurrection of the Son of God. Latter-day Saints believe Christ suffered for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane, died on the cross for all people on the earth and then rose from the tomb three days later, providing everyone with the opportunity to be resurrected.

The Internet initiative, sponsored by the Church’s website, will run Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 6-8 April 2012. Comments from the Church’s Missionary Department explained that this will be a unique chance for Mormons to share their personal testimony of Jesus Christ with people of other faiths.
