Using technology (and free coffee!) to share the Gospel with those around the neighborhood.

Technology plays an important piece in what we do as a ministry. It’s a tool for connecting people to resources they otherwise would not have. It has proven to be a great asset especially for ministry leaders who can use technology to find training, share resources, or implement new services in their ministry.

Brad, a Technology Consultant and Trainer for Edutech Mission, decided to jump on an opportunity for something that goes on everyday day right outside of his home in Costa Rica. When he and his family first moved into their home, they thought that the fact that the bus stop was directly outside of their home might be a noisy setup. Instead, the family found it to be a great opportunity to engage with the locals. Brad shared, “If you're a missionary and the Lord is literally bringing people to your front door, you better do something about it!”

While waiting for the bus, people can now connect to free WiFi (set up by Brad), using their mobile devices. It’s been programmed so that the first screen that they are taken to contains a video that presents the Gospel.

And what a better way to get to know people than through coffee? On Friday mornings he serves free coffee and offers to pray for anyone who is seeking. He’s looking forward to getting more people involved on a regular basis, and is hoping to cover more bus stations.

Please pray for this outreach opportunity, and one young man in particular who has began to attend church after his encounter with Brad.

    It’s not just me! My Tico (Costa Rican) friend, Luis Diego, is vital to this ministry too.`

    Hi, Brad! I just visited your site and noticed your comment that “…Louse Diego, is vital to this ministry too.” I can’t believe that “Louse” is correct, so I’m calling it to your attention for review. Blessings on you!

      Good catch. I fixed the spelling in my comment. Thanks!
