Welcome to the Mobile MInistry Group. You can see how much we are on your side by looking at the Kiosk Evangelism Demo at www.kioskevangelism.com It is not ready for public consumption yet, but we hope to release these GRN materials at a church in NC in January. After that, the world. Your comments and suggestions are sought by us...
