I spent Saturday with the board of Cybermissions, who are using new technologies to reach and equip the body of Christ in remote or restricted places.
In partnership with Pastor “Jose,” their training materials have started 100 Bible colleges in the Amazon. Three or four people a day are coming to Christ through their website.
They can put 500 hours of college-level Bible courses on a chip that plays through a cell phone for $13. Add another $20 and speakers can be attached to the cell phone, allowing a small training class to commence.
Compare this to a year of seminary in the U.S. for $30,000 to $40,000.
John Edmiston, the founder of Cybermissions, says he doesn’t need a visa to get into restricted countries. “We tunnel in (using cyber technologies) and then blast away.”
