The Mail now has more pages, colors and provides political, social and entertainment news. This new feature of The Mail has made it more renowned in Ghana as it airlifts newspapers to all corners of Ghana. The Ghanaian media is one of the most successful on the continent. This is so because of the outstanding news, reports and articles covered by prolific writers from The Mail such as Mr. A. Harruna Attah. The print media in Ghana has been dominated for many years by two state-owned newspapers mainly the Daily Graphic and Ghanaian Times, but the landscape has changed with innovative, privately-owned publications such as The Mail.

The focus is to Educate, Disciple, Give knowledge and Engage with insight for cross-cultural missions with the opportunity for potential missionaries to have hands-on training. This Mission is for Edgies and anyone who desires to impact the Altea community in a cross cultural missions setting. As a a cross-cultural worker you will: live abroad, raise support, and live out your faith in an organic daily experience. The mission is self-propelled and completely flexible to your passions and gifts. You create your own experience and discover how your particular interests and talents can further the gospel and bring God's kingdom here on earth.

We have had several writers and poets come participate in the summer Edge experience. They held writing workshops throughout the town in Spain, read poetry in our Art Nights in the Gallery, and wrote blogs and articles for us.

However, we recommend staying as long as you are able to gain the richest experience possible.

The internship is three-fold: live your passion, be purposeful, and work practically. We want you to discover your passions and God-given giftings so that you can pursue them. Be purposeful in your goals and the Lord will direct your steps.

You will gain experience in everything from: event planning, organizing, volunteer coordinating, public and motivational speaking, mentoring, artistic growth, individual self-discovery, and cross-cultural ministry.
