Word Processing

Missionaries do a lot of word processing, simply because they do a lot of communication. And since missionaries have a very dramatic range of IT skills, their use of programs ranges a lot also. Some use old favorites, like vi and wordstar, but most use the most recent, GUI based tools.

Reasons for

  • Email
  • Prayer-Letters
  • Communication with the home office.
  • Statistical research
  • Training materials
  • Sermons

Applications Used

Note that OpenOffice has many localizations (Interface and tools, including spell checking) in many different languages. Great for nationals and missioanries and no extra licensing is required - still free. Shawn - Missionary Tech Support
