Digital strategies and tools that are impacting lives

Standard

 

She was 5 weeks pregnant and desperate. Her partner kept pressurizing her to abort the baby. Depressed, she searched online for help and found ‘Boiling Waters’, a FaceBook page set up by a few brothers in our Philippines’ ministry. She was touched by the  inspirational posts and  started chatting with one of our staff. It led quickly to a spiritual conversation. She was then invited to watch ‘FallingPlates’ – a powerful 4-min gospel short-film by our team, that has been watched by millions on YouTube. In tears, touched by God’s unconditional love for her, she received Christ and said she will not abort the baby.  Praise God!  This is just one of many stories of lives being impacted and ministered to as a result of this unique FaceBook page strategy.

One of the effective tools our team has worked on is GodTools. It now has 50+ language versions of the Four Spiritual Laws. Coupled with other useful tools, it helps any follower of Christ communicate the gospel simply but clearly. Recently updated, it has been used in 198 nations, daily usage has increased by 500%. In an unnamed country in the Middle-East (which has little to almost no missionary presence), it is used an average of 199 times a month. The Lord is moving in a powerful way, to help our Arab friends discover and use it to either learn or share the gospel (even in a ‘closed’ country!)  

We’re thankful for partners like you! Because of you, we are able to make headway into the digital world, impacting the lives of people who are desperate and lost, yearning and seeking to discover true hope in Jesus.

We want to invite you to be part of this great adventure with us! Learn more about our current needs, and the opportunities to be partners in the gospel!

No more crumpled tracts…

Looking for an easy way to share the Gospel with those around you? The perfect complement to your favorite Bible app, God Tools puts some of the most effective and widely used evangelistic tools of all time on your iPhone and iPod Touch! Check it out.

The iPod and iPhone are now easily the most recognizable gadget that at least 1 in 3 of your friends (and even yourself) are using. In fact, many are opting to buy other phones, just so they are not spotted using an iPhone. But truth be told, it’s the hundreds of thousands of iPhone apps that are making this device super useful.

Now you can use your iPod or iPhone to talk about Jesus. It’s not longer the crumpled tract that you stuff inside your wallet that you need to use.

Download and install this app, and pray for divine appointments to show it to your friends and family. =)

3. “Is Online Community Real?” asks Justin Wise
“It’s not that the question is wrong, per se, it’s that the question is irrelevant. It’s a question that’s already been answered,” says Justin Wise.
