Welcome to a new charity!
After careful consideration and many prayers it has been decided to separate The Relay Trust into two entities. The new organisation will be called DECIBEL Training.
My phone is my jar
In April and May, our digital training solution for distance learning finally reached a stage, where Issa, Doug, Lincoln, and Alex were able to launch the first pilot test of TheWell training system in Sierra Leone. We can now test its’ full functionality, so we can learn from our end-users and improve the software and hardware accordingly.
Welcome to Word Online￼
In 2020 we had our first conversations with Martin Charlesworth about Word Online. These conversations continued and today we are pleased to announce that Word Online is now part of the DECIBEL Training resource portfolio. We want to see Word Online develop further under the DECIBEL Training umbrella, and together we hope to reach a much wider audience.
A year of launching
I (Moses Lincoln) can vividly recall my childhood days. I went to spend the Christmas holidays with my grandparents. I realized that almost everyone plunged themselves in the cool stream that flows by the village early in the morning on New Year’s Day.
DECIBEL – Church Events
This month, we are going to focus on DECIBEL, which stands for Digitally Enhanced Community Based Learning and is the name we have given our approach to training. DECIBEL is developed to be easy to use and benefit from. Each DECIBEL course contains everything needed to set up a learning group in a church and go through the materials together without a subject matter expert present.
The use of technology has divided the waters in the Christian world. Some remain skeptical and conservative, while others are jumping into all the exciting opportunities technology offers without giving it a second thought. Of course, there are also many who are in between these two extremes, and today we see how technology is gradually being integrated in church services and mission activities all over the world.
The Labourers are few…
Christianity is growing across the world exponentially. Maybe we do not notice it in the West, where Christianity is gradually losing ground, but there are other parts of the world where we see exponential growth. Ordinary population growth is part of the reason, but it is also the result of effective evangelism, for it is never guaranteed that children of Christian parents will also grow up to be Christians themselves.
Different paths – same goal!
It is a joint relay race. We each contribute to the race so that we gradually get closer to the goal.
Working with a purpose
On April 19th, The Relay Trust welcomed Gabriela Cristofani into the London office for her first day as one of our team. As the Executive Assistant, Gabriela will largely be working with Mette Bjergbæk Klausen on the curriculum development and bringing her professional translator experience to standardizing the translation process of the materials between our teams.
First Course in Uganda
“This course is a blessing: it adds onto the knowledge you already have about God’s love and care about others.”
