Inside MAI Blog: Thoughts on global publishing
Some of my favorite people
I nearly missed the narrow strip of scratch paper in a retired friend’s envelope. On it appeared this handwritten note: “I write J. Maust in the margin of my devotional notes each day as a way of keeping in touch with the unique ministry of MAI.”
That slip of paper is now scotch-taped beside my computer as a visual reminder that people are praying.
A few days later we received a different note--this one from kids in the five-year-old Sunday school class at my home church.
The children had scrawled their names on a yellow piece of construction paper beneath their teacher’s message, “We pray that many souls will be saved as a result of your [MAI] ministry.”
MAI’s praying friends are some of my favorite people. Some of you pray literally every day for this work. Amazing. Encouraging!
God knows just how much your prayers have meant for the global Christian publishers and writers served by MAI training, and for the readers in far-flung places who have come to faith.
New doors are opening for MAI training ministry in especially challenging places for Christian publishing such as South Sudan, closed countries in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. Now, more than ever, we need prayer for God’s hand and protection on efforts to publish life-transforming Christian content in the world’s hard places.
Will you take a few minutes each day to partner with us in prayer? To guide you, we have a new 31-day prayer guide with specific requests related to countries, publishers, writers and trainers connected with MAI ministry. You can find it on our website, or ask us to send you a printed copy.
Thank you for being one of “my favorite people”!
