335 – Global Mobile Ministry

There’s no foolin’ around on this week’s WELSTech Podcast, as Martin and Sallie share the events of the recent Christ In Media Institute Conference on Mobile Phone Outreach. Sallie’s practicing karate, and Martin has a surprising (controversial?) tip of the week. There’s even a little document camera demo to round out the fun.

The interviews and discussion:

christInMedia145x125Cheerleading for Mobile Missions – Sallie was on-hand for the recent Christ In Media Institute Christian Mobile-Phone Project Conference which brought together high school and college-aged students and a “rock star” cast of missionaries from all corners of the world to present ideas for using the now ubiquitous technology of mobile phones to share the good news of Jesus Christ. We share multiple interviews to give WELSTech-ers a flavor of the excitement that the conference generated.
