A friend of CMA - Mark Haville, a film producer and conference speaker who lives in the Dallas area with his family, needs our help. May I ask if you would read his condensed story below and possibly help? CMA has given him a gift, but we are also reaching out to our CMA community.

Letter written on June 12
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
You may or may not have heard but we have been in quite a battle for some time, much of which is to be expected for anyone working for good in Christian media, to not only move forward with revolutionary plans for Christian movies and the industry, but also to continue our work that supports many involved in this work.
We came to the USA at the end of December 2013 on a E1 treaty visa between Britain and the US, but since then five trading partners in the UK alone have gone into insolvency owing us money. Since last year we have been back and forth with lawyers and have had to file for a new NIW visa, very difficult to obtain, and a green card last Friday so our eldest does not become an illegal today, June 12th, he was 21 yesterday on the 11th of June.
Christian media is often low pay and involves volunteering, a lot. Would you please consider posting, tweeting or somehow sharing our Go Fund Me appeal to help us in what has become a weight of legal debt.
Tim Shields, co-director of Christian Media Association, encouraged me to share our need with the wider Christian Media community, which I had previously restricted to close friends.
If you feel free to share our link, thank you for your support and prayers. Please do not feel any pressure if you are uncomfortable with this request.
