Many of us struggle to understand the Bible and grow in our faith on a daily basis. But now imagine adding persecution and censorship into the mix. Whether it’s the strict governmental oversight of religious material and activities in Cuba (which we’ll be telling you more about tomorrow), or navigating the daily violence in Sudan, many believers can’t simply pull up a Bible and relevant study tools on their smartphone at anytime, especially when internet access and electricity are restricted or unavailable.
In these areas, believers (especially those who feel called to ministry) have few reliable resources to guide them in their studies. They do their best to “be diligent to present [themselves] approved to God… accurately handling the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15). But they’re hungry to learn more.
Thankfully, one of the Messenger Lab devices can help. Missionaries can customize the Slate, a 7-inch tablet, with content in any language. So no matter where they’re headed, they can handpick the best resources to share. Not to mention, a few tablets attract far less attention than boxes of pamphlets and books—and are much easier to transport. A single Slate can hold a wide variety of Bible translations, study tools, and Dr. Stanley videos, providing its reader with trustworthy resources for personal study and biblical leadership.
Missionaries have already been using the Slate to train native pastors in Dr. Stanley’s 30 Life Principles, and to help them with their sermon preparations. So far they’ve been distributed to groups in Cuba and the Sudan, and we look forward to sending them to more Christian leaders who want to help further the gospel and expand the kingdom of God.
