Using The Phronema Search Engine To Find Christian Content For Mobile Ministry
The Phronema Search Engine searched hundreds of top Christian websites to find the best content for you with just one click - no more fruitless searching!
Just go to the Phronema Search Engines for:
Mobile Ministry Media (audio, video etc) BibleFinder (bibles in many languages) or for Mobile Ministry (in general)
and type in a search. It can include languages and type of media e.g. "Tagalog MP3" or content e.g. gospel of John. This way you can find film clips, audio bibles and other Christian content for personal use and ministry
How To Use SD Cards For Gospel Content
The SD cards used in mobile phones are called micro-SD cards and often have an adaptor so you can also use them on a computer.
You can transfer any kind of content this way: text, photos, audio, video, music, apps, and so on.
A single micro-SD card can hold an enormous amount of useful information!
Inserting An SD Card Into A Phone (you may want to Google how to do this for your particular type of phone)
NOTE: You cannot put a micro-SD card in an iPhone. You need to have an Android or other type of mobile phone that has this capability.
How To Use Bluetooth To Share Files (Audio, Music, Video, Apps etc)
(if you get asked for a code when you use BlueTooth "0000" is the default and will work most of the time)
The same method works no matter what kind of file you are sending.
However Bluetooth is SLOW and only works over 10 meters (30feet). So you will want to:
a) use smaller files and
b) be fairly close to the other device.
How To Send Apps Via BlueTooth (general)
NOTE: iPhones do not have filesharing via BlueTooth, their BlueTooth is only for the phone headset
