New Technology, Same Great News

Ben Watson is a recent friend (made through Facebook) who is involved with a Christian outreach that I think some of you might find of interest. I certainly do.

It is Source Of Light Ministries International, an organization that has been around since 1952. But the particular branch that my friend works with is SLM's Alternative Media Ministry which provides Bible study materials in large print formats, Braille, audio (including the distribution of solar-powered radios to people in regions without electrical power), and now internet activities including "webinar" presentations.

Their purpose is "to make the study of God's Word possible to everyone, regardless of their level of literacy, geographical location or physical limitations."

Very cool!

For more information, check out the Source of Light web site and the specific Alternative Media page. From that page you can contact Ben if, for instance, you'd like to receive updates via the web site, Facebook or their online Wednesday chapel services.
