Partner Profiles

In “Partner Profiles,” we introduce you to men and women who partner with MAI and make our ministry possible.

Althea Kuniholm is from Lititz, Pennsylvian, US.
Occupation:  Wife, mother, elementary school teacher, owner of my little mailing business called Lee Mail.

Something unique about where I grew up:  Our little town of Gardner, Massachusetts, was known as the “Chair City of the World.”  We had a gigantic arm chair at the railroad station to represent the chair manufacturers such as Heywood-Wakefield, Conant-Ball, Nichols & Stone, S. Bent and Brothers.

First job:  Tying string around tops of toy billy clubs, 1 cent each, at age 8.  My father made and sold a gift box of toy handcuffs, star badge and a billy club.
Hobby or leisure activity:  Reading, writing, walking, gardening, lunching with friends.
Country or area of the world that interests me:  English countryside, seaside or any small village where you can walk to the library, grocery store, church and coffee shop.

A favorite book, and why (not including the Bible):   Green Dolphin Street, by Elizabeth Goudge.  The message of love, determination and forgiveness were unforgettably lived out in her characters. I still think of them as if I know them.
What led me to become a Christian:  Godly parents and the teaching I heard from the book of Colossians in particular, and C.S. Lewis’s books in general.
Most thankful for:  The simple invitation to “Come unto Him” and to learn “the unforced rhythms of grace,” Matthew 11:27-28, The Message.

How I first heard about MAI:
  Through MAI co-founder Bob Reekie.

Why I support MAI ministry:  I believe everyone has a story (and a song) assigned to them before they were born.  I like encouraging people to share their uniqueness in their own words.  The process defines them and builds community and authenticity.  MAI cultivates that vision.

We invite you to partner with us in MAI training ministry.  Find out how.
