Together to Go MAD

At Go MAD Ministries we believe that human exploitation is THE issue facing humanity today.  That may sound like an overstatement but let me share with you the definition of human exploitation and a couple of facts.  Human Exploitation is people being used as a resource with no consideration of their well-being.  Think about things like human trafficking, slavery, sweat shops, indebted labor, etc.  Today, while exact numbers are hard to come by due to the underground nature of this issue, it is estimated that there are over 27 million slaves in the world.  That is more than at any time in history.  Let that sink in for a moment.  How is it that while every major country in the world has made slavery illegal there are more slaves than ever?  Not only that, but today at a price of about $90 per slave they are also less expensive than ever before in history.

As Christians we believe that every human being is a beautiful creation of God.  We believe this because God tells us this all throughout the Bible.  In fact, you have to look no further than Gensis 1 when he created man in His own image, blessed him and gave him rule over the earth and every creature on it.  Then He continues to tell us how important we all are to Him and ultimately shows us by sending His Son to die on a cross for each of us including the $90 slave.  So while God considers human beings his greatest masterpiece (Eph. 2:10) human exploitation is at an all time high.  As Christians called to love one another we should not be okay with God’s masterpiece being treated this way.

Go MAD Ministries is committed to fighting human exploitation but we cannot do it alone.  We need your help to impact generations and change the trajectory of lives.  We need your help financially so that we can continue to provide job training, education, safe housing, counseling and discipleship to exploited individuals.  You can do this by going to www.gomadministries.com and clicking on Make A Donation or by mailing a check to PO Box 391 Bastrop, TX 78602.  We need your help in driving awareness.  You can do this by thinking of one person that you believe would be interested in learning more about human exploitation and forwarding this blog to them.  We need your help by sharing your giftings, talents and creativity with us.  You can do this by volunteering your services or by having a fundraiser.  At this time we are looking for graphic designers, content marketing, copywriting, social marketing, video editing, speakers, administrator and missionaries.  Contact me at chantz@gomadministries.com for additional information.

Thank you to everyone that is helping us make a difference by providing hope of a different future to exploited individuals.  While our calling is great together we can Go MAD!
