Computers are missionaries main tools. They are used in everything—learning culture and language, translating the Bible, writing Bible lessons, email (even sending out Bible lessons for printing), ordering supplies and more.
As well, every support missionary and many of the citizen staff use computers as part of their daily ministry.
The IT department at the mission center where we served in Papua New Guinea has a critical need for personnel. They have gone from five people down to one in the last two years. And now that person is leaving for several months because they have a baby on the way. Pray that the Lord would send forth workers to fill this vital role.
If you have skills in IT or other areas and desire to use them as part of the church planting team, click HERE to see the many opportunities to serve.
