"Communication, Research and Information Technology"and was formed six years ago in response to the word of the Lord that YWAM's central nervous system, or Communication backbone, was sick and in need of healing. The YWAMers realized that communication within the mission and out to the rest of the world was not functioning well, and needed to be strengthened.
Previous CRIT consultations have been held in England, America, Argentina and India. This is the first CRIT to be held in Africa.
The participants have come from bases in Argentina, Venezuela, India, Singapore, Taiwan, Czech Republic, Switzerland, England, Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa and USA to discuss how we can build and strengthen communications between our bases, within YWAM international, and to the whole body of Christ.
Aaron Musch and Vikki Wright are representing the Arua base, and are helping look at issues affecting communication in East Africa.
Members of Africa's communications team, AfriCom, are facilitating the event and pursuing the idea of launching new communications teams in East and West Africa. Other communication teams have been launched in recent years in South America (LatinCom), India (SpiceCom), Europe (EuroCom), and Asia/Pacific (AspaCom).
Here in Uganda we are excited about the potential that improved communications will bring to our mission, not just in networking but in uniting us as a region, as a continent, and as an international mission.
Please stand with us in prayer as we continue to seek God's strategies in this vital area.
