Who you help
We met Nuru at our conference in Kenya in October, where he came to learn how to edit the new magazine he and his team are planning to launch.
However, Nuru found the training was not the only advantage to be gained. At the conference he was able to meet and network with other Christian publishers from Nigeria.
Often publishers think they are alone. So, knowing others around them have the same calling and face similar challenges is encouraging. Read Nuru’s testimony >>
At the conference in Kenya we were also able to meet Ivanova from Cameroon. She was already a friend, because for many years she had been taking advantage of our online learning opportunities and other training resources.
During the conference she shared a part of her history that we had never heard. Twelve years ago, as a very new writer, assuming we published a magazine, she emailed us asking if she could submit an article.
Instead of ignoring the email, MTI President Sharon Mumper took the time to connect her with the publisher of a French-language magazine. That relationship changed the course of her life. Today she works closely with that magazine. She has also published a children’s book and does freelance writing for Christian magazines.
Daphrose and her husband, Jean-Pasteur, started a magazine for youth, but after one issue knew they needed help. The challenge is enormous. The youth of the Democratic Republic of Congo have grown up in a country at war. Some are orphans; many saw their parents slaughtered. Their education has been interrupted. They know only years of conflict.
At the training in Kenya Daphrose and Jean-Pasteur received the tools they needed to help them implement their vision–to offer hope and help to the next generation in the D.R.C.; to be God’s messengers bringing the Kingdom of God to a broken land.
