I’m excited about trying something out for the first time this year on our mission trips! Text message updates! I’ve been using Simply Txt (a mass text messaging service) for about half a year now and I am HOOKED. I love how easy it is, the students love getting the reminders on their phones, and my volunteers like the convenient reminders, too! Last week I upgraded our plan so we could add our college students and parents to the system. The parents are excited because they’ll get real time updates, and I’m pumped because I can do it from MY cell phone! I don’t need my computer, internet access, etc. Very, very convenient! Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing how it all plays out!
