We have been in the age of pulpit for so long that we have not grown independent in helping ourselves to grow in the knowledge of Christ. As a result the pastors who minister in the word of God have carried all the bulk of ministering to the members. Thank you CRMF Learning Technologies for coming to our humble community to teach the introductory course in Basic Computer Skills. We realize that it is only a start to greater things to come and so we are comforted by the experience of the blind man healed by Jesus in Mark 8:22-25, now is the first touch, please come back for the second touch. We request that you do come back as we need the second touch to help our people.
The representative of the participants made the above speech at the closing of the course and ended by saying that LTPNG served as the link to join the remote people with today’s technology just as we are commanded to abide in Christ to bear much fruit (John 15:5) With tablets, mobile phones, audio bibles, SD cards and flash drives and the basic computer skills training, we see a great opportunity to help spread the word of God to our remote people.A participant named this Samsung tablet “The Stone Tablet of Moses”
A participant getting the feel of a tablet and going through the resources available on the Estante Program. All those who saw the resources were fascinated by the fact that a pastor can carry all the Bibles, handbooks, dictionaries and other biblical resources on a portable device.
At the closing of the training a gift of the string bag was presented to the LTPNG country leader, Bryan Mathew with these words; “As a gesture of our genuine request for help and prayers, we present this string bag (bulim) to the country leader of Learning Technologies PNG in the hope of partnering together to fill the empty string bag with tables, mobile phones, sd cards, flash drives and audio bibles for our remotest people”
The women leaders who attended the Basic Computer Skills training represented the Sunday School Ministry, Women;s Fellowship and Youth Ministry. They listen to the audio version of the Good News Bibles in Pidgin English (Tok Pisin) from the Envoy Micro player by MegaVoice.
Pray with us that this community has seen the potential of audio Bible in their community and these leaders are willing to raise funds to buy units for distribution.
