387 – In The Bag

WELSTech is on the road this week as Martin vacations in warm Austin, TX and both he and Sallie did a worship tour of district president congregations over Easter. The topic for discussion is what to carry in your computer bag when traveling. Geek out with their gadget list, and stay tuned for more great ministry-tech ideas including Bible costumes, a meeting fable and QR code treasure hunts.

The discussion:
