Technology Connects Christians During Flu Spread

Ad Feedback

At the height of the H1N1 flu epidemic, the Mexican government disributed masks on the street, encouraged all but essential workers to stay home, shut down schools, and discouraged all public meetings. 

Many churches were closed again last Sunday, but a few Christians did come together to pray for their nation. 

Others used their websites or Christian radio programs to connect with the faithful in their homes.

"At Habakuk Radio we have tried to move forward," Jorge Zarza Radio Habakuk said. "We should keep sending this message to more homes, and even though right now we have been going through the virus, we have media like the internet, like radio."

One Christian radio station reported that its audience had actually quadrupled. 

As fears of a spreading flu epidemic diminish, Mexico is lifting restrictions on public gatherings, and churches will meet normally once again.  

But after closing church doors the past two weeks, many leaders are showing a new appreciation for the internet and radio.
