Service as unto the Lord

Often, we have been asked how we manage to get so much done with our limited resources. And our answer is simple: We have many amazing volunteers who work with us and help get the work done. MAI has a list of 18 volunteers who live close to our office in Salida, and they faithfully […]

Sometimes, You must go back…

September and the fall season are the time of year where parents have brought their children back to school, summer vacations are now memories and companies look back at the year and launch ways of ending the fiscal year in the black. Today we share the story of Musa (not his real name), who came […]

Building Family Relationships

As the months go by, it’s hard to realize that yet another difficult year is in its 8th month! On the other hand, it is yet another opportunity to help support our field staff and partners as they serve the communities that they have been called to serve. Our story is about Elizabeth from East […]

One More for His Kingdom!

He cares especially for the orphans and the abandoned! The following is an encouraging story from West Africa, about a young boy who was abandoned by his family because they assumed that his sickness meant he was cursed. Young Souleman survived because people in his community shared food with him. Then Souleman met a local […]

He Understands Our Pain and Sorrow!

Life is not always a bed of roses! The longer one has been around, the more one has experienced pain. However, isn’t it amazing that God intersperses our lives with joy and pain to help us cope with life more maturely? Last month, I shared a story from Guatemala about weaving. That story took me […]

A Thread in His Beautiful Tapestry!

While traveling in Guatemala sometime back, I had the privilege of spending time with some of the CHE committee members in a community way up in the mountains. The high altitude and cold breeze made it hard to move fast, but the fascinating community I was visiting had my full attention. The village had an […]

A Garden on Barren Land

When we moved to Ripon several years ago, farmers in our church proudly told us that the soil was excellent for planting crops. My experience with developing micro watersheds on the field in Asia, had me curiously study the agricultural patterns in Ripon as well as in the Central Valley. With roughly 11 inches of […]

Deliverance!

We have an unusual and special story for you this month! Our stories in these monthly newsletters are normally focused only on the communities where we serve, but that is only 8 to 10 hours of the time that our team members and partners serve on the field. God of course is at work 24 […]

Love Rekindled!

Valentine’s day is around the corner and everyone is talking about love. Whether it is “mushy” teenage love for a high school sweetheart or a more mature long-standing relationship, we know as we grow older that love is complicated! The Bible sets some pretty high standards for true love to live up to in 1 […]

The Widening Circle of Influence!

Happy New Year to you and your family. We pray that the New Year will bring new hope and blessings. Back in 2016, I had the chance to visit Uganda with John and Madelle Payne. I love visiting the field because it gives me an opportunity to personally meet some of God’s amazing heroes. We […]
