Technology on a Mission: a "Sacred Opportunity" PDF Print E-mail
Written by Sharon Howell   
Wednesday, 17 June 2015

When Hermana (Sister Alyssa) Pearson was handed an iPad six weeks into her mission she was humbled by the sense of trust that accompanied the ”sacred opportunity to hasten the work of salvation” with technology. She was among the first in a Spanish speaking mission that covers a large urban area to use iPads for direct proselytizing, social media contacting, planning, and personal gospel study. If you were to talk to Alyssa about using technology to do missionary work, you’ll sense that the missionary spirit is still present two months after coming home, and warm thoughts and tender feelings permeate her experiences with people and technology.

Question

What is your current position at the Church and what are your responsibilities?

Answer

Officially, I am an individual contributor. In practice, I’m a team member in Infrastructure’s Middleware group. Middleware responsibilities include proxy and caching solutions, ftp services, n-tier application and Web servers (multiple technology platforms), and some other stuff (that’s the technical term).

Within Middleware, I am part of the Public Facing Sites (PFS) team.  As implied, PFS’ focus is public sites and content, which include LDS.org , Newsroom , Mormon.org , and others. The team is responsible for the application environments’ availability and administration.  To that end, PFS integrates closely with partner organizations such as Dev and QA to provide useful content and products that perform effectively and are highly available.
