Ernest, our mobile phone-based pastor training guru in Cameroon, recently launched another group of pastor-students in Central African Republic (CAR). Along with the French language 80-hour theology curriculum, he showed the group how they could use their mobile phones to load the JESUS Film Media App for their personal outreach. This makes their inexpensive smartphone that much more effective!

It made me happy to see technology helping equip pastors in places where technology is usually scarce. And it made me proud of Ernest who used his technical training on the system to troubleshoot a bunch of problems and get everything working on his own with just a little email help from me.
