At the conference room table

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

I travel, usually at least a couple times a year, to various conferences related to my ministry. This year I’ve been to meetings to coordinate with other technology leaders and a large meeting for everyone in our organization who works in an operations role. That’s all the finance, communications and technology people to give a […]

Mobile Matters

Monday, October 17th, 2011

I feel a little silly at this point, talking about the importance of mobile technology and the role it plays and will play. A few years ago I felt a bit like it was still “out there” and not totally known. I often found myself telling people “soon…” Quicker than I could have imagined even […]

No Papers for You!

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Does it date me that I relate a lot of life to Seinfeld memes? When the answer is not yes, I tend to think about the soup nazi. But moving back to reality – we do have a prayer request. When we arrived in Hungary the five of us were given 90 day tourist visas. […]

On Our Way

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

Things have been very busy for the last couple months. We frantically tried to get rid of all the stuff we could not take to Hungary with us. We were able to save much of it to make some money to help with the move. Then the movers came and took all the things going […]

mLearning Project

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

I was in on the mLearning project pretty early. I sat through a number of meetings and got very excited as I thought about the potential that was there. As it moved forward, I had to focus on other things and my friend and co-worker Jerry Hertzler took the ball and ran with it. The […]

Oumar

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

I’ve been busy and should have had this up a while ago. This is the last video I’ll be posting here from our conference in Thailand. This is Oumar, our tech leader for Francophone Africa. Oumar lives with his family in Mali and is a joy to be around. I think you’ll pick up a […]

Ways to keep in touch

Friday, April 9th, 2010

We have a neat job, Ingrid and I. I was reminded of it this week-end as we shared Easter and our wedding anniversary with dear friends of ours that were in town. Due to the fact that we don’t operate alone but rather as part of a large team of ministry partners, we have so […]

Miheret

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Well, if you get our newsletter, it should be landing in your mailbox today or tomorrow. Monday at the latest I would think. Either way, in it we talk about a friend and co-laborer Miharet. He is a young Ethiopian man with technical talent and a heart for reaching his country, his continent and the […]

Connecting the Mobile Dots

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Chris Sleath is a Brit, that lives in Texas and is the Director Of Virtual Movements for Africa and the Middle East. One of the things I love about working for CCCI is that this isn’t all that odd ball a mix around here. Virtual movements or virtually led in CCCI speak are movements that […]

Coming, Going and Living

Monday, October 12th, 2009

I’ve been a slacker on keeping this site up to date. Once the kids got back into school things got a lot busier. September slipped right on by and October is going too fast. God has been good and everyone is doing well. A lot of my time has been spent thinking about mobile phones, […]
