Concerned about the situation in Burma?

Then visit the Free Burma Rangers site. They show love and care to displaced people in tribal areas in Burma. Some of the tribes have many Christians, such as the Karen. The Burmese leaders do not like these tribes.

This ministry is cutting edge.

Oh - yes they do use technology - satphones, rugged laptops, digital cameras and videos in order to document the actions of the government against its people.

New Perspectives web site launched

As part of our involvement in the Perspectives course, David has just completed a redevelopment of the the web site. Visit www.perspectives.org.au to see the outcome.While we are not graphics designers, most web sites do not require flashy graphics - information and function is often more important. So we focus on our strengths.This site uses Drupal, and a  new module that integrates Google Maps, so you can view a map of course locations or search by postcode. Very nice.

I often have to answer emails about how Crosscape can help people getting into missions using their IT skills. Here is a recent response:

April 2007 On the Goat Track

Here is our latest "quarterly" newsletter.

December On the Goat Track out now

David & Katrina Millers' quarterly newsletter. On the Goat Track, is now available for download. It incorporates the Crosscape newsletter this time. It is attached and is almost 6mb. It is designed to be printed on double-sided A3 and folded so you get a Christmas card from us. But if you want to just read it, that is fine.

The Spirit's leading....at work.

When you are working, do you listen for the Holy Spirit's prompting?

Now, don't overreact to that statement. I'm not talking about words of knowledge and so on (but it might be). I am talking about the still small voice of God.

It might appear as that strange hunch that you should go and check that server, or revisit that code.

Now, admittedly I am effectively in a "full time ministry role", but a lot of what I do is technical, or web updates, or plain old admin stuff. Yet I find that God directs my day with small whispers (and sometimes loud bangs!). And sometimes I am distracted.
