Hi, Friend!
Dance a little celebratory jig with me. MAI reached the top 50 finalists in the Giving of Life campaign! I suspect we had more voters from around the world than any other candidate, thanks to your help. We'll learn in December whether MAI wins $2,000 toward our training ministry.
Thank you for joining hands with MAI and voting to satisfy global hunger for Christian literature.

How to Convert the Spoken Word to the Written Word
By Ian Darke

Many Christian leaders, pastors and teachers share excellent spoken messages worth hearing throughout nations and across borders. Unfortunately, these key communicators often either lack the time to write or the gift of writing. One solution is recording a talk or sermon, and converting the spoken word into written form.
David Porter shared these tips with me on overcoming the challenges of editing recorded talks. 


Journaling and Blogging Tools: MacJournal and Winjournal 
Text editors, journaling software, word processors and writers’ tools are available in abundance for both PCs and MACs. Of course, there is no reason why you shouldn’t use Word or Pages, but sometimes they may seem too heavy weight to jot down ideas or develop an article.
