Still looking for the perfect summer vacation? How about a church-sponsored service/disaster-relief vacation to Japan? This “To the Rescue: Japan” program may be the first of its kind. As this blogger explains, “In essence, the LDS Church is looking for individuals willing to arrange their own travel to get to Japan between July 18 and Aug. 30. Once in Tokyo, the church will pay for you to be transported to areas in the country that are still in need of help. These will be two-week-long tours.” The church hopes to gather 130,000 people. Wow! What an incredible opportunity! Click in to learn all about it.
Techie tip: Did you know that there are 48 new “Languages Pages on LDS.org”? Larry Richman outlines how to find these new languages, “On the home page of LDS.org, click 'Languages' in the upper right corner. Then click 'See Other Languages on LDS.org.' Click any language to see an index page with links to all the church materials currently available online in that language.” Awesome.
