2013 is well underway and we’re doing our best to bring the mission website into the 21st century. In 1998 we made our first foray into using a website to connect with our friends and supporters by building a “free” website on a popular “free website” service. Not long afterwards we got an email inquiring about some images that were displayed on our site – they were placed by advertisers that were underwriting the cost of hosting by placing adds on our site. That is when we decided to start paying for hosting and placing a website on our “own” server where only that which we authorized would show up when visitors dropped in. Things have changed a lot since then, that is for sure!
So this year we are modernizing even more, doing our best to integrate the website with popular social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Google + and LinkedIn. We also are contemplating using the blog format to place updates, info and etc on the site and thus also propagate the same to the aforementioned social media. This will (hopefully) allow our friends and supporters to better know how to pray for us. We will continue to use our mailing lists as the main form of communication, but shorter blurbs will be placed here occasionally as well.
Thank you for being a part of South American Christian Mission by lifting up the work we are doing before God’s throne in prayer!
