The Voice

We flew to Bulgaria with no idea what was coming. What we stumbled into, was challenging, forcing us to stretch our tiny understanding...

At first glance, Hari seems unique. In simple obedience to a voice no one else can hear, he boldly shares his faith with everyone he meets. But Hari is not so different from us. He has made a choice to pursue and trust God completely. It is a choice each one of us could make. We could each be like Hari: genuine, obedient, bold and faithful.

This is your chance. The voice is speaking to you as well. You may never have a vision, but God reaches out to each of us in a way uniquely suited to who we are. What is He saying to you? What were you created for?

We have no clear distribution plan or strategy for this story, but we believe that God does. Watch the video, share it with your friends on facebook, or tweet about it. Feel free to download it and show it to groups you are a part of, or use it to start discussions.

More video training and partnership

GemStone Media partnered with several other ministries to provide essential video skills training to workers from all over the world – many from closed countries – who are strategically positioned to share the gospel through media. One of our video producers, Ted, represented our team and partnered with other video teams to present workshops for the training. The focus was good story telling, and using video to tell stories in a culturally relevant way. The students were provided with instruction, opportunities to evaluate existing films and videos, and a chance to write and put together their own project and share it with the group.

GemStone Media participates in ICCM

Two of our GSM team members participated in ICCM (International Conference for Computing and Mission) in the Netherlands in February. Sixty-five people representing 31 different organizations attended the conference. Ted and John not only attended ICCM, but they also had the opportunity to present workshops: "Building a Server Attached Network on a Shoestring Budget" (Ted) and "Web Design for Techies" (John). It was a great opportunity to encourage and help others in various ministries across Europe!

ICCM brochure

GEM's eDOT team is helping to organize the International Conference on Computing and Mission (ICCM), which is being held in the Netherlands in February. ICCM is a great opportunity for people in the ministry fields of computers and technology to network, discuss new technologies, share resources, offer encouragement, and fellowship together.

Our print team was asked to help them develop a brochure that could be used over several years, and point people to the ICCM website for registration, logistics, and other helpful information.

Two of our GemStone Media team members are planning to attend and lead workshops at this year's conference.
