God working through Social Media


As mentioned last week, we wanted to update you some more on God@work in the digital space, and how your prayers have made a difference. This image offers some highlights. We trust it would encourage you how the Lord has used you to support this work.

Because of Covid-19, so many more are turning to social media in search of answers. Many are asking spiritual questions. They would stumble upon a Google or Facebook ad that we have put up or landed on one of our targeted websites. (#1 and #2)

#3 GodTools is a mobile app created by Cru to make it easy to share your faith. Translated into 90 languages, it has been opened 4 mil times by 1 mil people in 224 countries. It even has a simple training module to equip you to share your faith! 🙂 If you haven’t downloaded it, go find it on your App store on Google Play.

“80% of our virtual community group come from Instagram DMs (Direct Messages) and polls.”

#4 This is a quote from one of our staff expressing how much digital engagement is so crucial at this time. Instagram direct messages and other interactive elements help us, disciple people, even at a distance.

We need wisdom and insights to know how to keep pressing on to discover more ways to engage with people in the digital space.

Digital strategies and tools that are impacting lives



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!
