Keeping mission vision alive and growing A quarterly publication of Mission Data International

M-DAT News and Prayer: October 2007

Prayer: Radio Spot – We wrapped up production of a 30 second radio spot for ShortTermMissions.com. Building on a landscape of sounds from around the world, the spot informs believers of how they can find a mission trip on which to serve. Pray that God would open the door for five to ten Christian radio stations to play the spot late Fall or early Spring as a public service announcement for their listeners.

News: Mission Trip Search Widgets Available – Do you have a website or blog? Consider adding a ShortTermMissions.com search widget in the side bar. Now available in tall or wide.

Prayer: Volunteers and Staff- As we grow into offering a new web resource for aspiring missionaries, our biggest prayer need is for God to expand M-DAT’s capacity for ministry by providing additional volunteers and staff. We are especially praying for a volunteer coordinator, volunteer video editors and a website project manager.

News: Report Published- In September we released a search summary report to the missions community. It examines the roughly 80,000 “basic” searches made on ShortTermMissions.com from January through April of 2007 and shows the top search criteria people use when looking for short-term mission trips. Nothing like this has ever been available before now, and this information has been well-received.

Praise: God’s Provision – We were surprised this month with a very large donation that will enable one our staff members to continue working full-time with the ministry! It was a huge answer to prayer and blessing to the ministry. Praise the Lord for His goodness.
