The year 2009 was both challenging and fullfilling.
- 1249 messages were uploaded in 24 different languages
- There are now 42 languages represented on the MessageHub site
- Over 100 "MessageHub Print Stations" have been placed around the world
- messagehub.info was secured
- Website has been upgraded
As the year progressed it was exciting to see the incresed online activity resulting from special meeting and mission trips overseas. The placing of "Print Stations" in carious countires caused further increase of activity and message downloads. This was particularly noted in Spanish speaking countries. There have been more Spanish downloads thatn any other language. Of a total of 134,808 messages downloaed in 2009, 48.7% were in the Spanish language.
Reports indicate a number of these downloads resulted in more than one book printed. In addition, many more books were printed from printers using the MessageHub desktop program.
Visits to the MessageHub website in 2009 exceeded 100 000 and the number of page views were well over 1 000 000!
Believers from 3795 cities in 159 countries, speaking 68 different languages, accessed the "Message of the hour" through the MessageHub website. Praise the Lord!
For 2010 we expect to exceed the translated message uploads and MessageHub activity we experienced in 2009. THe internet is allowing the gospel to be spread around the world like no other time in history.
I have seen and personally experienced the affect a "Print Station" can have in a local assembly and am convinced that every Message Church would benefit by having a "Print Station".
I thank the Lord for allowing me to be a part of this tremendous outreach effort of "getting the Message of the hour into the hands of the people".
