It’s hard to imagine what our world would be like without technology. I know some of us think technology is the devil! HA! But believe it or not – technology can also be used to bring God glory!!
Years and years ago – the mission didn’t have a telephone. We didn’t have internet. The way you communicated was through a Ham Radio System. That’s right! Breaker – Breaker – 119 – this is Haiti. I need a radio check! Come on back! 10-4!
We slowly upgraded from that to an email that went across the radio waves. It was REALLY expensive. They charged you by the number of words you typed. It would take hours to upload and download. Emails were only sent for quick updates every few days. No blogging or long stories. Just enough words to let your loved ones know you were alive and well!
When Jose and I moved to Haiti over 10 years ago- God used Jose’s ITT skills to hook up a REAL internet! Years later we got an internet phone!
Thanks to advances in technology Jose and I are able to communicate with our friends and family in the states! We’re able to blog about the latest and greatest needs! We’re able to share our life daily – in ways that were never possible before! We also get to stay in touch with our loved ones! We may be 1000’s of miles apart but technology makes us feel like we’re right there together!
So today I am thankful for technology!
For being able to fellowship with friends from all over the world!
