Growing and Changing

15068381_1324023437631199_8071619311844424729_oIt has been said that if you are not changing, you are not growing. I believe this to be true. To grow personally we must continually, seek to learn, challenge our beliefs, stretch our abilities, analyze how we do things, etc. In other words, we must be in a continual state of change.

I also believe this to be true for us as an organization. If we are not continuing to change by continuing to refine how we do things, by continuing to challenge our beliefs in how best to serve, by continuing to listen to ideas and learn, then we are not growing. If we are not growing as an organization, then we are not improving our ability to serve those in need. Go MAD does however want to always look for ways to improve on our ability to serve, therefore you will see several announcements over the coming months of changes that are driving growth.

Today, I am very excited to share two with you. The move of Megan Ratnam from Community Coordinator to Country Director and the additions of Bonnie Smith and Callie Clyde as Community Coordinators.

Megan is originally from Ontario, Canada, but has been living, along with her husband Travis, in the Dominican Republic since 2011. She has a BA from The University of Western Ontario and a Masters of Divinity from McMaster Divinity College. Megan has spent the last year serving with Go MAD as our Community Coordinator for the village of Ascension. She has done an amazing job there and we look forward to her expanding that work into the other communities that we serve.

Bonnie received her BA from Freed-Hardeman University and has a strong background in marketing and business. Callie graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in Elementary Education and has been serving as a teacher here in the DR. They both have hearts for serving and mentoring others.

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements over the coming weeks as we prepare for 2017. Remember, if you are not changing, you are not growing.
