Pokémon Go is the latest mobile game craze and Christian public relations expert Hunter Frederick says as thousands try to virtually catch their favorite Pokemon, many churches are capitalizing on the floods of people who are traveling to their parking lots to find Pokemon.
The value of Nintendo's business has doubled since the release of Pokémon Go and according to Frederick, so has the traffic in church parking lots throughout America. The aim of Pokémon Go is to catch a virtual Pokémon that has been superimposed into the real-world. As users move around a virtual map on their smart phone while they walk through the real world, they can capture creatures and then train the Pokemon and battle them against others at Poké Gyms.
Poké Gyms are actual landmarks where players congregate and play around each other. Frederick told The Christian Post that given the number of people who've been randomly showing up around churches throughout the country, he believes church staff should use it as a ministry moment to share Jesus through acts of kindness and hospitality. more >>
"Jane the Virgin" season 2 closed with Jane (Gina Rodriguez) and Michael (Brett Dier) getting married. While Michael said his vows in Spanish and the church choir and guests broke out into a song, Michael realized that Susanna (Megan Ketch) was the mole and shot him. The best part is Susanna is Rose (Bridget Regan) in disguise.
Rafael (Justin Baldoni) decided to keep his feelings to himself upon seeing Jane was happy with Michael. Anezka was unable to speak due to a seizure-induced mini stroke, but it was Petra (Yael Grobglas) who was in the hospital, and Anezka got it on with Rafael. Xo (Andrea Navedo) and Rogelio (Jamie Camil) wanted to be together again but he wanted kids, so they shared the dancefloor instead of getting back together.
