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

Prayer and Gratitude


  • Praise God for the successful launch of the e-Newsletter. About 3,500 people are signed up for the newsletter. The first issue highlighted upcoming mission trips and challenged readers to get to know their global neighbors.
  • We’re also grateful for two out-of-the-ordinary mentions of our services. WBGL is a network of Christian radio stations heard from St. Louis to Chicago. On August 8 they interviewed us for a radio show on the topic of short-term missions. Later in the month, MissioNexus recommended our service on their blog and Facebook page. MissioNexus is an associative body representative of 35,000 evangelical missionaries deployed in every country by more than 200 agencies and churches.


  • M-DAT is in the middle of a leadership team transition. Two years ago one of our key staff members announced plans to transition from work at M-DAT and make a move overseas. Since then we’ve been busy planning, training, handing off tasks and getting the team in place to continue our services that help people make it to the mission field. While we are pleased with progress on the transition, we continue to seek the Lord to carry the ministry forward and fill the gaps.

M-DAT helps people make it to the mission field. Explore our websites:
