Who knew Grace and Internet Technology went hand in hand?
Today I had a great opportunity to disciple some young men using my book on grace, Death of the Modern SuperHero.
Some friends started a ministry called Together Tech. They pair Biblical training and IT skills with the focused outcome being sustainable employment. It is a grassroots mentorship movement for young men under 30 in Cape Town, South Africa. Bridging the digital divide to tackle big issues like extreme poverty and believing in the model of Jesus to go far with a few people at a time.
While not teaching the gentleman internet technology skills, I have an impact in their lives when they read my book to complete some of the spiritual discipleship they engage in.
I was able to meet with them for a few hours today to build relationship as well as discuss the book. I was so impressed with all the questions they had from the content. Even more it was fantastic to see them being inquisitive about how to apply the truths to their lives.
We plan to connect several more times over their internship. To read more about this great program, Together Tech – CLICK HERE. Or to see a video promo for the ministry CLICK HERE.
We are so excited to be training the whole man, not merely their spiritual lives.
It was so great to see an “out-of-the-box” way the book has been able to impact lives. On our last trip to the USA, I received a number of encouragements as to how the book is being used. These ranged from counseling centers dealing with perfectionism to many reports of individuals being challenged and encouraged.
When you write something and put it out there, you often wonder about its impact. At times you question if anyone is actually reading it! So to hear these reports are very encouraging.
If you are interested in a copy of the book or want to read more about it head over to NoSuperHeroes.com. There is even a video overview! Thanks! Together with Project Grace you are helping to train the whole man in South Africa!
