The Answer Was Blowing in the Wind

Thomas slumped in the corner of a busy bus station in Kerala, India, and wondered how to end his miserable life. He had fallen into financial trouble the last few years, and his debts were piling up monstrously. Money lenders had begun harassing his wife and children too.

New Skills, New Books, New Life

"Your books and blogs move me," a reader told author and MAI trainer Grace Chong.  “Your writings give me reason to look at life from a different perspective. You are an inspiration, a real grace from heaven."

Authors like Grace know all about the power of the written word. They see it in the changed lives of their readers--one dramatic example being George Koshy’s story (left column).

We equip local publishers and writers in the conviction that God uses the written word to transform lives. People are being strengthened spiritually and coming to faith in Christ through materials you help create by supporting MAI.  

Your partnership is also giving valuable skills to Christian publishers and writers, and birthing new books and even publishing houses.
