I’m thankful for the invention of Skype. We are able to see family and friends back in the states and they are able to see us and seeing someone face to face makes them almost feel like they are in the same room with you. This weekend we were able to feel like we were back at our home church in Missouri when we skyped in for the service and the pastor was able to ask us some questions and everyone was able to see us and listen to our responses. It was also nice to be able to greet people as they left the church and watch the church service live from France!
Skype is also being used in Bible Translation. The Mara Cluster Project conducted a Bible translation consultant check of the Gospel of Luke, chapter 22 in the Simbiti language. The consultant was in Holland and the translation team in a small town in Tanzania. Computers are playing a critical role in accelerating the pace of Bible Translation.
God created computers for missions – He just lets everyone else use them. (Unknown)
