Lately I have been reflecting on how the work of LT has been shifting into new expressions. For the past 13 years LT has helped evangelical ministries that train and resource pastors and church leaders in least-access communities.
At first, the technologies available to us were mostly computers.

In an oral strategies video our team has been working on, Regina describes a piece of candy to her friend Laura. When Jim comes into the picture, Laura has not yet tried the candy.

Now that she’s tried it and experienced it for herself, she easily expresses—in her own words—how good the candy is.

But, here in LT, we’re not just about the latest, coolest gadget—we’re about the heart.
