4) Start streaming your Service or Project to the Web/World

livesteamAll you need to know is…

http://livestream.com

They’ll take care of everything else. OK — you have to get a webcam working with your laptop. But beyond that, the rest is easy. Think about it: Your next class, church service, organization-wide meeting, training session, etc., streamed live to the web for your entire organization/church/set of supporters to enjoy. Best of all, it’s totally free.

5) Are Orgs & Churches Behind in Using Webcams?

tokbox_logoA missionary colleague of mine was recently lamenting that churches and missionary agencies seem to be lagging behind in their use of video links with their missionaries. Do you agree or disagree? He pointed to easy-to-use tools, some of which have been referenced previously here in Brigada. Of course, the most well-known tool is Skype. However, as my friend pointed out, Skype requires a download. There are other sites like 

http://www.tokbox.com/

which do not. Tokbox is free, like Skype, but doesn’t offer a connection to the public telephone grid (“Skype out”). At the same time, Tokbox remarkably allows you to add as many video conference connections as your internet bandwidth will allow, all completely free. And for what it’s worth, it embeds in Facebook and — Twitter. (Call me old-fashioned, but I still can’t bring myself to try Twitter. I keep wondering why anyone would ever care?)

As in all web tools, please remember to exercise caution regarding security. TokBox apparently has *no* security features whatsoever. Let the user beware. For users that can’t or won’t use a VPN, maybe Skype is a better option?

How ’bout you? Do you think we’re behind on this stuff? Any comments on TokBox’s lack of security or privacy? To comment, just click “Comment” below…

2) This Missions Video Made a Big Impact this Morning

This morning I spoke in a church in northeastern Ohio. I used the missions video, “A Thousand Questions.” Whoa. Itathousandquestions had a huge impact on this church of 220. After the video, you could have heard a pin drop… except for some lingering tears people were choking back… Someone was sobbing over at the side. I prayed, then asked if anyone had anything to share after watching the video. There was great feedback: “Overwhelmed,” “Challenged,” “Sobered,” … the feedback went on. One long-time member testified that he was at first critical of the church’s investment in missions. Now he had concluded it was the smartest thing they ever did. Highly recommended. (And thanks, Martin, for the heads-up about this resource.) Watch it on Youtube at

Then if you like it, download either a Flash or a Quicktime copy at…

This might be one of the best resources you’ve ever received via Brigada… and the amazing thing is — it’s free. Just don’t forget that you heard about it here on Brigada.

4) The Malatya Film: Chronicle Of A Martyr

Necati Aydin, Ugur Yuksel and Tilmann Geske were tied down, tortured and killed April 18, 2007 in Malatya, Turkey, for their testimonies that Jesus Christ is Lord. Two young filmmakers from Texas set out to capture the surrounding events that continue to shake the foundation of a nation less than 0.1% Christian. The result is a full length documentary film, Malatya.

You can watch the trailer now online there. Check out

http://www.malatyafilm.com/

The film was internationally released as this Brigada goes to press, on or around the 2-year anniversary date of the killings. Organizers are trying to mobilize churches and groups all over the world to show the film. Check the website for more information about how the airings are going.

2) Free Missions Video: "Waiting to Go"

Hats off to “Steve” for offering his missions video, “Waiting to Go” to the Brigada audience, free of charge. If you decide to use it, please remember to pray for him. He originally volunteered this video in a comment made to a previous Brigada item (Nov. 23, 2008).

Watch the video live, embedded below, by clicking the big “Play” triangle in the middle of the black square:

or alternatively, download the entire video to your own hard drive.

9) Family Friendly Videos

A Team Expansion missionary who has lived outside of the US for the better part of a decade says that every once in a while someone will tell him about a great movie or TV series that’s aligned with Christian values or is at least family friendly (probably rated PG or G). He’s wondering if any of you would share what your favorites are in hopes that he can buy pirated copies… just kidding…. legal copies for his family to enjoy. Just mention your favorites in the comments below and we’ll hook these up to Amazon links next week in case you’d like to buy them there.

3) Local Church Is Seeking Short Recruitment Videos

Ken recently asked for help with his local church missions campaign. They’d like to show several short mobilization & recruitment videos throughout their mission emphasis month. Can you take a moment to click on “Comment” under this item and share the best recruitment videos available today? Be sure to give source information (where to order them). Thanks!

Free Evangelistic Audio/Videos

Let’s build a list here of free audio and video resources (and links to the same) that can be used for evangelism in various languages and dialects around the world. This request came from an anonymous commenter for an item in the June 22, 2008 edition of Brigada.
