Sixty nations including the US do not recognize Maduro as the President of Venezuela. At this time the US only recognizes Juan Guaidó as the Venezuelan leader.

Is it Possible to Do Missional Work Without Hurting the People?

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the term “missionary work”? Maybe you would picture in your mind individuals playing with African children in a little village,  distributing food to the poor, or digging wells in a foreign land. While these are the sort of tasks that missionaries undertake, missional work involves a broader range of the types of work.

Missional work revolves around addressing a person’s physical and spiritual needs, with the focus on sharing the teaching of the gospel. It requires the missionaries to put God first, and then people, and in the end, themselves. The knowledge that there is much more to life than just the here and now allows the missionaries to see the “eternal perspective,” and this helps them to fulfill simple tasks while still making a lasting impact and glorifying God.

When reviewing freelance gig platforms we recommend the first item you consider is total cost. Many of the large gig platforms charge very aggressive rates; some as high as 27-28% of every dollar. Thus, if you are working on a gig platform charging such a high rate, we would recommend that you consider a slow plan to migrate off it. Over time you should make more money.
