Summer is Over

CCP_8146For many people the kids heading back to school marks the official end to summer. For us it is when the last summer team heads out. Summer is a busy time for us with teams, especially youth teams, and we love it!

We love our teams because, not only do they get so much more accomplished in a shorter time than we can, but they also bring so much energy and excitement with them. It is like we get to see the work here through fresh eyes over-and-over again. That is something that is really cool.

So much was accomplished this summer including many work projects, VBS’s, girls’ program, feeding program, sharing testimonies, praying with people, medical clinic and even a spelling bee for the English class in one of our villages. We are also very thankful for the supplies that the teams brought in for our schools and medical clinics.

We cherish our teams and appreciate so much the time and resources that they commit to coming down to serve with us. We know that your trip preparation started many months before you ever stepped foot on a plane. In fact, teams are already working and planning for next Spring and Summer.

If you have never been down to visit us here in the DR, what is keeping you from coming down? I can assure you that God can use your gifts and talents, and it will be a time you will never forget.

Go MAD Sponsorships

13122903_1158883600811851_6390788682870469345_oFor a while now people have expressed a desire to support specific areas where Go MAD is working. This has been especially true for people that have come down on one of our MAD Trips and gotten to know people either serving or being served through specific programs. We also have heard from people that have a passion for different areas of the ministry. Up to this point we have had some general categories, but we have felt like you wanted more, so we have launched Go MAD Sponsorships.

With Go MAD Sponsorships you can direct much more specifically where your contribution goes putting you in control of your donation. Today we have 16 different areas that you can choose from for your donation. We will be adding more as different needs and areas of work come up. For example, we will soon be adding a sponsorship for School Uniforms. This is extremely important as there are children that are not able to attend public school simply because their parents cannot afford the school uniforms that are required.

Let me give you an example of one of the sponsorships available today. You could provide a doctor to a community for a whole month for only $300 or share the cost for $50. How crazy is that? For only $300 hundreds of kids could receive medical care for a whole month. I bet you can think of something frivolous that you spent $300 on this past month that you would feel much better if you had spent it on providing kids with medical treatment.

There are many other areas so click on Go MAD Sponsorships and look through our online catalog and as always, we appreciate all of you that help Go MAD to restore hope and create opportunities for the exploited.
