An Instant Tool for Evangelism in Your Pocket

John is from a church with a long history of involvement with Global Recordings Network Australia. John attended GRN Australia’s 60th Anniversary Open Day on 25 May, 2013. He was very eager to learn about 5fish after receiving a brochure from a representative two weeks prior.

At the open day one of GRN’s staff accessed on John’s phone. Later that day John visited his 80 year old neighbor at Westmead Hospital. She sat up on the bed amazed and bewildered as John shared the gospel with her using his phone. The lady was suffering from mild dementia but was very conscious of what she was seeing. John describes the impact of playing the recordings to her from his phone as amazing.

Later that day a gentleman from Pakistan was speaking at his church. The Pakistani man was surprised that John could so easily find and play recordings in his own dialect.

GRN has developed the 5fish suite of applications for easy distribution and playback of gospel messages on mobile devices in over 5,400 languages.

The audio recordings available on 5fish contain some of the most important words you will ever hear. They speak good news for everyone in their own language.

Just as fish is food for sustaining physical life, the messages on 5fish offer spiritual life.

John describes 5fish as a ‘very very effective and valuable tool for witnessing’ providing ‘instant access to the gospel’. It is a ‘remarkable way to share the gospel’. John is now always conscious that he now carries an ‘instant tool for evangelism’ in his pocket. He said you don’t need to go overseas to evangelize using

5fish is available for Android, iPhone, iPod or from any mobile web browser at
