why mobile technology?
We live in an age where connection is everything. People are rarely separated from their smartphones. Even refugees, displaced from everything that is familiar, are in search of three things: Food, water, and Wi-Fi. At IMM, we are leveraging the power of mobile technology as a platform to bring people the hope of Jesus.
