Missions - Equipment & Resources

  1. Certain missions in more remote areas take missisonaries in areas that don’t have electricity and certainly not internet.  Below are a few links to Renew World Outreach that produces great products and presents great strategies for reaching out to the lost in these remote areas.  Here is a video link from their site that describes the REACH strategy:  https://vimeo.com/182558902
  2. I bought a Vista 1000 Backpack from them and sent it to a Pastor that I work with in Ghana.  The Vista 1000 is a complete system that not only allows one to pack in a movie projecor and screen, but also a speaker system with two microphones that all run off batteries that can also be charged through an optional solar panel.  Also included is a flashcard to run the Jesus Film in the local areas common language, which makes it more meaningful and understandable for the local culture.  Many of these remote area don’t get their information as much from reading as they do through verbal and visual means.  This is what makes Renew’s products so valuable.  Here is a link to use of their backpacks:  https://vimeo.com/183559380  Also included in the Vista 1000 Backpack is a product called LIghtstream, which acts as a mobile hotspot for the locals who don’t have electricity or internet to download parts of the Bible as well as parts of or the whoiole Jesus film, depending on how much you provide them access to.  Here is a link that explains the concept and use of Lightstream: https://vimeo.com/182557805
  3. It is amazing to me that even in remote areas many people have cell phones.  While they usually aren’t smart phones, they do have the capacity to share media through Bluetooth or WiFi sharing.  Some of the equipment provided by Renew Outreach contain tools to capitalize on leveraging technology to put God’s Word into anyone with a phone.  Here is their strategy around use of the phone: https://vimeo.com/182556950
