In the quote above, Ellen White gave counsel to the church, regarding the use of various media including technology to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Consequently, on Sabbath May 6, 2017, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Braeton, launched the church’s mobile application. Celebrated conference-wide as Communication Day, it was deemed fit to dedicate this evangelistic tool to the Lord on that day as we sought to build bridges of hope.

The mobile app was launched after Sabbath School with an introduction from Church Pastor, Romone Phoenix who expressed gratitude to the team that had worked assiduously to make the venture possible.

Other features include a special request for prayer and baptism and a resource section that includes links to other Adventist websites. They also shared that its primary purpose was to share the gospel with the online community. In addition, it will serve to concretise relationships with members in the diaspora and locally who may have moved away to other sections of the island.
