“Miheret how do you want me to narrate this in the script we are working on?” Asked a local creative leader who is helping me to create a short vision video for our team.
“Let me check what God is doing as reflected in the Cru digital ecosystem” was my answer. Wow! It turns out over 1.7 million unique visitors experienced at least one of our Cru properties that week.
He exclaimed, “we are just in the first week of January!”
We both grew very excited about what we were seeing.
Yes, God is connecting people to Himself through our many digital channels. God blessed us with the biggest “mountain” which I believe is the mobile device, to lift up our voice and proclaim the good news to others.
You who bring good news to Zion,
go up on a high mountain.
You who bring good news to Jerusalem,[a]
lift up your voice with a shout,
lift it up, do not be afraid;
say to the towns of Judah,
“Here is your God!”
In Sofia, Bulgaria we will meet with 70 Central and Eastern European Cru leaders. This week we will discuss Digital missions and will do an intensive content strategy workshop.
If you are reading my newsletter, I am 100% confident you have a smartphone or a computer. Every now and then, your digital device notifies you to download updates for security reasons and for a better digital experience. As we take the initiative to share the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit, digital missions requires us to continuously change our methods of creating an experience for our users. But our message remains the same, as fresh as it was 2000 years ago.
In Sofia, Bulgaria we will train others in what it means to have an integrated content strategy for better ministry impact. We will help countries to rebuild their national websites, as well as prepare the infrastructure for them to use their digital tools well to reach others for Christ.
