■ VOP HAS AN APP FOR THAT — The Voice of Prophecy Radio application appeared in the App Store (Search for “VOP”) last week making it the first radio application for the iPhone to be devoted to providing inspirational content. The application, which has an easy-to-use user interface, provides VOP Radio to its users 24/7 in two formats. Users can listen to current programming in a streaming format like the radio, or select from a list of recently aired programs to listen upon demand.
The application runs the same stream that appears in VOP Radio category on The Adventist Channel and was developed by Kyle Borg, president of BiggyTV, LLC, that created the platform for The Adventist Channel and SDALink.
The Application will run on both the iPhone and on the second-generation iPod Touch. It can be downloaded in the App Store or on the VOP Web site at www.VOP.com.
■ "REVELATION SPEAKS PEACE" IN THE HEART OF LOS ANGELES — It Is Written and the Southern California Conference had a great opening weekend for "Revelation Speaks Peace," which is part of the "Claim LA" effort. Due to the high number of pre-registrations, the series was moved into the Shrine Auditorium for opening weekend in order to accommodate the crowds. An average of 2,400 people attended Friday - Sunday to hear Pastor Shawn Boonstra preach the first topics in this full-message series. On Tuesday, the meetings moved into the Shrine Expo Hall as originally planned, and new people continue to arrive every night. The audience is very receptive and local pastors are already in contact with 1,600 guests. Please keep this series in your prayers!
