A Unique Ministry Opportunity For You...


Do you wish you could do more to help our missionaries overseas?  I want to share about a way that you can help equip them for ministry, from right here in Austin!

This summer, God opened the door for us to be able to help these families get what they need to communicate the Gospel, as well as keep in touch with their families here at home.  It is so simple, yet so important.  For lack of a better name, I will call it iMission.

The technology here in the US moves at an astounding pace.  Phones, tablets, and computers get replaced with newer models very quickly.  Many of us keep up with the new cycle of equipment, and upgrade frequently.  This is where iMission comes in.  While an iPhone 4, or an iPad 2 may not seem like “gems” to many people these days, they can be invaluable tools for someone overseas.  I met with a pastor in Hungary that could desperately use an iPad in the ministry he does at his church.  However, an iPad 2 costs about $600 there.

This is where you come in.  If you have (or will be soon) upgraded your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch (4th gen or newer), or even a Mac laptop, and are not sure what to do with the old ones… you can help!  We ask that you pray about donating those phones, iPads, and laptops to further the kingdom work in other nations.  These items will be refurbished, and either given to the missionaries in need, or in some cases, sold to provide money to get what they are requesting.  We ask that iPhones be a 4, or newer.  Any generation of the iPad would be fine, and mac computers that are not more than 3 years old.  Right now, we’re only asking for Apple branded items, due to their unique iMessage system.  If you have any questions, please let me know, and thank you for your help!
