Who We Are

LDS Mission Network is an index of mission alumni Web pages independently maintained by returned missionaries from the corresponding missions of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

A small group of Web developers (see right) and designers donate their time to maintain LDS Mission Network, its indices, PURL servers, and equipment.

How We Got Started

On January 8, 1996, a discussion began between the owners of the existing mission alumni pages (see the e-mail thread). After hundreds of messages exchanged over a period of a few months, a server was selected, a logo was chosen from over a dozen candidates submitted by mission alumni page owners, and a home page was posted at mission.net (framed and non-frame-enabled versions).

LDS Mission Network now provides two basic services:

  1. Serves as an easy-to-find jumping point for RM's searching for an alumni Web site for their mission.
  2. Provides server space for returned missionaries to keep their alumni pages, if they so choose.

Returned missionaries who host their mission alumni sites on the LDS Mission Network can choose between Linux and Windows NT servers. The Linux server is mission.net and the Windows NT server is ldsmissions.net. The servers offer most of the services commonly associated with the respective operating systems. (For example, sites hosted on ldsmissions.net can use Active Server Pages and ODBC databases.)

LDS Mission Network also provides tools for site Webmasters, such as a full-featured database-driven alumni databases.
