Mobile phones and other devices

The potential for evangelism

The desire to be in touch with people and information 24/7 has led to the huge growth in mobile cell phones and other mobile devices.  Over 90% of the world’s population now lives within a mobile reception area. There are about 4 billion mobile phone users (equivalent to more than half the world’s population) and many of these are in the non-western Majority World, often in 10/40 Window countries. There are more mobile phones used in Africa than USA. The mobile systems in Japan and Korea are more advanced than almost anywhere. It is a hugely significant medium. Unlike a computer, a mobile is always with you – an integrated part of you and your lifestyle.
Mobile devices are transforming communication and development in the non-Westerm world (see links and video clips in Section 9 below) and also have great potential for evangelism and discipleship.
