It’s a good day. I think I already said that Ed gave me a new Mac for our anniversary. Spent yesterday at the Apple Store learning about iMovie and downloading the things remaining on my JVC camera. I had already put them on the PC but they looked tall and thin and I feared the final results. So, now all the stuff is ready to work on. I had one file 0f me teaching in Kenya that was already on the old Mac and had been transferred to the new one. It is huge and I have to export it to QuickTime this morning to get it down to DVD size. More of the wonderful learning curve.
All this to say, this morning an idea came that may be from the Lord. The young man who helped me yesterday is a marathon runner. He reminded me that young people have little time to read but most either exercise or spend time commuting and do have listening time. This brought me back to podcasts.
There are so many wonderful articles that are already written and need only to be read into a podcast and put out there. I know how to do it with an Mac. Bet one of you knows how to do it on a PC. Even books could be done by chapters so they could be downloaded onto iPods and digested.
I had been encouraging an overworked friend to delegate. There is no way for me to begin to do all the things I think of. Do you think if we could get the word out that there are people out there that might be willing to do some recording.
I also thought about grant writing. In many cases large grants are divided into segments. There is a great need to write grants for the folks we met in Kenya. Again, I can’t do it all. If we had clear explanations of the project do you suppose anyone might be willing to help with the writing. I know there are folks here in Wharton where I live who would help with editing and there are probably those who would be willing to write if they were given some direction into how it’s done.
It’s a good day! God loves us. He says we need laborers for the harvest—that’s what sparked the idea. He delegated, so should we.
What do you think? I’d really like to hear your comments.
