Mobile phones offer many opportunities. Moses, in AP State, India, has made a photo diary (maybe partly posed) of a chance encounter he was able to use by sharing video clips by Bluetooth with a taxi driver. Here’s an edited version of his story:

taxi
“Yesterday when I’m going in auto (taxi), I sat front side beside the driver. While he was driving the auto, he got on the phone. He held the phone while he was driving and speaking to other person – you can see in the photos.

It’s too dangerous – you know that! After finishing his call, I scolded him, saying not to repeat it again. He is muslim, you can see by the muslim threads on the steering wheel.

Then I opened my mobile and started watching video clips. After some time, the auto driver asked me, ‘Is there any blue film in your phone? So please download it into my mobile.’ I said, ‘There is no such films in my mobile,’ then he replied, ‘You are young man, they should be there in your mobile.’

Then I took his mobile and download two clips into his mobile. His SD card memory was very small so I couldn’t upload more clips in to his phone. I hope that the clips will change him. Amen!”

The Mobile Ministry Training Course is back!

October’s Mobile Ministry distance learning course went well. The next course starts in January. This 4-week introduction to the uses of mobile technology platforms for Christian ministry requires 4-6 hours of home study time each week.

This is an example of the vast opportunities in the Majority World. Watch the two videos below: the first from KioskEvangelism.com (thanks to them for providing the taxi story) – they focus particularly on India and the Majority World.
