Inside MAI Blog: Thoughts on global publishing
MAI's Board not Bored
MAI’s Board of Directors is not bored! It’s hard to keep up with this busy, gifted group.
Wambura Kimunyu just became country manager of the Cellulant company’s Kenya branch. The multimillion-dollar company is billed “Africa’s #1 mobile commerce solutions provider.” (Pictured front row, 2nd from left)
Board chair Greg Thornton recently became Senior Vice President of Media at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. (Meeting Greg for occasional early morning breakfasts at the Metra station in Chicago is special for me.) (Pictured 2nd row, far right)
Next week Tony Wales will lead a writing workshop in conjunction with Chrestos Mission at Mai Seriang in rural northern Thailand. Tony asks prayer that this new initiative will encourage Christian writers in a largely oral culture. (Pictured 2nd row, 5th from left)
Larry Brook is preparing to lead an author training program in Cambodia early next year, while author Keila Ochoa is developing Christian writers in her city, Orizaba, Mexico. (Larry is pictured front row, far right; Keila is not pictured.)
Tomorrow Dan Elliott leads a team of 10 co-workers from Tyndale House Publishers on a weeklong mission trip to Costa Rica, helping at Casa Viva, a ministry to children at risk. (Pictured 2nd row, 2nd from left)
Space forbids me from detailing the exploits of other Board members Dave Broucek, Howard Costley, Richard Crespo, Robin Gunn, Jon Hirst, Bernice Lee and Bob Reekie.
Suffice it to say the directors do more than attend MAI Board meetings. It’s because of their varied and unique involvements that each brings a unique and informed perspective to help strengthen MAI training ministry around the world.
Reason to Vote #8: MAI equips Christian communicators worldwide who, in turn, equip others. MAI trainers are publishing professionals who volunteer their time and skills both to help local publishers and writers develop new skills and to equip other trainers. The global ripple effect is huge.
