President’s Annual Report
Like most people we hoped that the Covid crisis would die down after a particularly difficult year – 2020. However, all indications are that the crisis is not going away soon, and we continue to face restrictions imposed by the pandemic both within the US and across the world. But the Lord has been faithful and enabled us to not only continue and sustain our present work but even helped us grow the ministry significantly. By His grace, we are now gearing up to face “the new normal!” As in the previous year, we continued to strive to improve quality, efficiency, and professionalism at all levels.
We persevered relentlessly with our ongoing work and in our efforts to grow and expand our CHE (Community Health Evangelism) program. We added another 64 communities in 2021, reaching a total of 2674 communities across 75 countries around the world to impact a population of over 2.98 million people. Our second line of leadership continues to grow and take on increasing responsibility on the field. In the years ahead we plan to continue this trend. The new technical programs continue to grow and are already performing very effectively. Significant relief response projects were launched in several countries affected by disasters.
The MAI Academy continues to add new programs to its existing curriculum. The Trafficking prevention and the Trauma recovery programs continue to spread awareness and train staff both within MAI and among partner agencies. The third-party assessment carried out by the globally recognized philanthropic advisors Calvin Edwards & Company (CEC) listed MAI as being among the top ten Christian organizations with a high return on investment for the Kingdom of God for the 4th year running 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020.

We continue to ”make wholistic disciples, who make wholistic disciples” in obedience to both the great commandment and the great commission (Matthew 22:37-40 and Matthew 28:18-20).
