That talk was then adapted and published in the Ensign as “Sharing the Gospel Using the Internet” and was the subject of the cover of the July 2008 issueHere is a summary of that article. Here is the article translated into various languages.

Elder Ballard called the Internet the modern day equivalent of the printing press and he urged members to join in that conversation via the Internet. He said, “Words create conversation, and conversations create understanding … In many cases, it is with words that you will accomplish the great things you will now set out to do.”
