Mobile%20Pic %20SEAsia%203I am certainly as excited about mobile ministry as anyone out there, heck I changed jobs and moved my entire family thousands of miles in order to start up Mobile Advance.  At the same time, though, I am often reminded that my trust cannot be in horses or chariots (easy enough) nor can it be in mobiles or 3G phone networks (somewhat more difficult).  Our trust is in the Lord and He has given us strong and powerful weapons for His work and prayer certainly is one of the most important tools we are commanded to take up and use to see His kingdom come and His will be done.

Mobile%20Pic %20Phones%201Pretty cool when Consumer Reports and I come to the same conclusion (and I beat them to it by five months)!

When I moved back to the U.S. this past summer I wanted to have two phones that I could use to test mobile ministry outreach upon. My idea was to have a low-end phone that was similar to most of what I knew people in the third world carried as well as a higher end smart phone upon which I could test out new technologies that might trickle down among the unreached within the next 5-10 years. I felt pretty sure that the Google Android operating system was the way of the future (latest figures show it has gone from 4% of the global smart phone market to 26% in 12 months) and I really wanted a phone that had a screen that did better in direct sunlight than the Nokia 5800 I had been using overseas.
