Virtual Interview in Belize: COVID-19 and Church Lockdowns

Dan Henrich was on-air in the country of Belize yesterday. Henrich was interviewed by owner and manager Richard Smith of My Refuge Christian Ministries 93.7 and 100.5 FM in Belmopan, Belize. Belize is a Caribbean country just south of Mexico with a population about 450,000.
“Belize is untouched by the COVID-19 as of now, but churches are meeting virtually, said Henrich. “We discussed using social media tools like Facebook Live, YouTube and the like so churches could still reach their members.” Henrich provided tips on using the smartphone, audio and framing.
Also discussed was future Mobile Journalism and Mobile Filmmaking courses soon and the possibility of a new initiative for self-paced online training in these areas. Henrich will be rolling out a prototype soon.
