God is good! Over the last several weeks, He has allowed me to figure out solutions to technical issues I have had with ACA’s website and I feel like I am really making some good progress toward making the site fully functional.
ACA’s online ministry has two parts: the main website that contains information about the ministry, and the actual Bible school site. I have been designing and maintaining both sites, and have made some great strides lately on both (I’ll spare you the details since only serious computer geeks would find them interesting).
One thing I do want to mention is that, since I started creating the main website a year and a half ago, I have tried hard to make it look good on every device, from a desktop computer running Windows to an iPad to an Android phone. While this seemed impossible for a while, I believe I have accomplished my goal so far! The reason compatibility is so important is that people access the Internet on so many different devices around the world. In many areas, cell phones are used more than laptops or desktops, so it is critical to make ACA’s content easily available on all devices. I don’t want someone to have to miss out on the audio teaching or the Bible courses because our website doesn’t display correctly on their device.
While the process of designing and programming the ACA websites isn’t a very exciting topic for a newsletter, the goal of all my behind-the-scenes work IS! That goal is for Spanish-speaking people all over the world to gain easy access to the Bible training ACA provides and, ultimately, to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and share Him with others. That goal is what keeps me going even when I get stuck on certain technical issues or when the work seems like too much for me too handle.
If you would like to take a look at my work so far, you can go to http://test.academiacristiana.org. There is some content in English, but I have been primarily working on the Spanish side. Please pray that God will continue to bless the work that I am doing because I cannot do it without Him!
