An elementary school counselor is teaching her students to be careful in what they post on the Internet by sending her own picture viral.
"I want my students to understand that there is a responsibility factor that comes with being on the Internet, both in what they post and how they choose to react to what others post," Julie Anne Culp, guidance counselor at Indian Lake Elementary School in Hendersonville, Tenn., told The Christian Post in an email statement. Her picture has found over 4 million likes and 103,000 shares on Facebook.
In the picture, Culp smiles, holding up a message: "I'm talking to my 5th grade students about internet safety and how quickly a photo can be seen by lots of people. If you are reading this, please click 'like.' Thanks!" The sign is dated Nov. 18, 2013. It was posted last Tuesday. more >>
A Christ-centered network of microfinance institutions is helping to provide life-changing mobile banking services in greatly impoverished communities in Rwanda so that people could find more security in life.

"mHose has made it easier for everyone to pay on time. Most people say they pay late because they don't want to leave their business, travel a long way, and stand in long lines. They hesitate because they don't know how long that will take." more >>
The Vatican Library and Bodleian Libraries at Oxford University have collaborated on a major digitization project to bring some of the world's oldest and rarest biblical texts online for people around the world to see.
"It's too dangerous to have unique exemplars of anything in one place," explained Dr. Leonard Polonsky of the Polonsky Foundation, who funded the $3.3 million project. "Digitizing enables us to secure all of this material and of course make it broadly available. It's an opportunity you can't resist."
The aim is to bring 1.5 million pages of ancient texts, including Greek and Hebrew manuscripts, to the online platform within the next three years. For now, a select few works are available for online viewers, including a copy of the Gutenberg Bible, the first major book printed with moveable metal type in the Western world, CNN reported. more >>
