The ripple effect.

Dear Friends, Ephesians 5:20 says God created men and women to love each other and submit to each other out of reverence for Christ.

“It Was Only a Simple Health Education Lesson!”

Dear Friends, This Christmas I looked for a simple heart-warming story that might leave you in awe of the range of blessings brought by Jesus’ coming to earth. Perhaps you can relate to the wonder of God’s taking an everyday, plain tool to reach deeply into the heart of a tough young man. Perhaps you […]

Seeking to Influence

Dear Friends, Does your heart get excited when you hear of how God is at work in the “hard places” of the world? Mine does.

Prayer is Critical!

We often say it. Yet our actions do not always back up our words. PRAYER IS CRITICAL! It is essential to everything Medical Ambassadors International (MAI) does.

Partner: Satan or God?

It’s easy to get overly-familiar with the Easter story. Some of us—myself included—have heard it all our lives. We don’t appreciate the power of Jesus expressed in the resurrection or the impact his power has on those who hear the good news for the first time. Does that resonate with you? I find it extremely […]
