What CRMF Does: (Part 2) WIFIBible

by | Feb 9, 2018

CRMF’s tagline is Tech for the Church. One of our goals as a ministry is to create appropriate technological solutions to share the gospel. The WIFIBible is a small wireless router that does just that. What’s a router? A router is a small device that sends out a WIFI signal, so anyone can connect to the internet. But this router is special. Its signal doesn’t cost any credit/money to connect. People can connect automatically to the WIFIBible website and download any of our material that they want

WIFIBible contains many different Christian resources that can help people in their Christian life. It contains gospel music, the Bible in 200 Papua New Guinean languages, Jesus film, evangelistic material, videos,  and mobile apps. How does this device help the people of PNG?

The WIFIBible on the Bus

The WIFIBible is installed on some of the PMV (Public Motor Vehicle) buses which travel on the main Highway between Lae – Madang – Mt.Hagen. The buses that are equipped with the WIFIBible can be recognized by the WIFIBible stickers on the front and the side of the bus. The passengers traveling on the Highway bus can access the resources while traveling to their destinations!

The WIFIBible on the Plane

MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) planes in Papua New Guinea are equipped with the WIFIBible. As MAF serves some of the most remote areas in PNG, even the isolated people will benefit from the WIFIBible. The device on the plane is battery powered and is switched on while the cargo is off-loaded at an airstrip in the remote areas.

The WIFIBible in the Bush

We have now developed a solar-powered WIFIBible that can be run in remote bush locations. Setup in a pastor’s house, a church building, or anywhere even if there is no power grid!

The WIFIBIble at Schools:

We installed a WIFIBible at the local Goroka high school. The principal of the school discussed with us his concern of the students viewing negative and destructive material on their phones and that he wanted to offer them a better alternative. Now students can download good Christian music and content any time they’re at school, then go home and share it with their family and village.

The WIFIBible is also located at different churches and bookstores all around Goroka area. To learn more about the WIFIBible, visit their website. http://wifibible.org/
