Inside MAI Blog: Thoughts on global publishing
Galloping across windswept plains, by guest blogger Owen Salter
The Mongolian church, like the country as a whole, is growing fast. When I spent a week there last year conducting editor training, I was excited by the clear potential for Christian writing to address the issues of this nation racing into the 21st century. The heart-felt longing among those trying to make Mongolian Christian literature a reality also impressed me. They face many obstacles, not least the challenge of serving an adolescent church inclined to be a bit irritable as it casts around to establish its identity. However, great possibilities are ready to open up, and now is a key moment for them to receive the kind of support and encouragement that MAI supplies so effectively.

*This week MAI trainer Ramon Rocha III is leading a training workshop for Mongolian Christian publishers, plus making personal visits to six or seven publishers for one-on-one consultations.
Reason to Vote #4: MAI stimulates literature to equip the Church in places where it’s young and growing. In countries where the evangelical church has ballooned in size, Christians need articles and books to grow in their faith and as leaders. MAI equips publishers and writers to create materials that help believers apply biblical truth in every area of their lives.
