A group of leaders from the Covenant Church of Mexico have formed an organization to fight abuse and exploitation. The leaders of Ministering to the Abused and Exploited in Mexico (MAEM) include Marisol Martinez, president of the Covenant Church of Mexico, Covenant missionary Janice Kelly, and ten other women and men ranging in age from young adults to retirees.

MAEM_logotipo-1In its early stage MAEM is focusing on:
• raising awareness of domestic abuse and violence and their connection to human trafficking;
• providing relevant resources to pastors and other leaders;
• equipping pastors and other leaders to respond to instances of exploitation and abuse in their churches and communities;
• helping individuals and families heal from abuse;
• and equipping pastors and leaders to train others.

According to Janice Kelly, those being trained are “receiving biblical instruction that teaches that God’s image lies at the core of what it means to be human and that abuse is a perversion of the image of God.” CWR is grateful to be able to partner with MAEM as they carry out this vital ministry.
