CBC is forming a technology IT missions team.  This team will serve two purposes: go on short term mission trips to fufill specific IT needs, and locally provide remote support for CBC missionaries and other Christian based organizations.  The team will start off with a trip to Kenya beginning April 21, 2012 for 13 days to assist with network, phone, and PC issues at various Food for the Hungry (www.fh.org) remote offices.  If you are interested in helping with either of these opportunities please contact Rick Richter or Matt Nevill to get involved.

One of the most common complaints i hear about short term teams is that people do not use their God given talents in the teams.  This trip provides a rare opportunity for technologists to use those talents by joining God in His work, but also providing many opportunities for discipling FH staff and each other, and having opportunities to witness as the team interacts with the local community.  One desirable result of this trip will be that we have generated enthusiasm for missions in an area of expertise that is sorely needed but largely ignored in missions.
