Previous Projects


Mission Aviation Fellowship Connect Box
The team was given a set of $20 routers and started hacking the firmware, loading the routers with materials on evangelism and discipleship in different languages. These routers could then be shared in restricted countries and the materials downloaded.

Wycliffe Rapid Translation Toolkit
Bible translation typically takes around a decade. The Wycliffe #H4M team paired up two languages (one known and one unknown) to help speed up the translation process.
