Making A Difference International, known more commonly as MAD International,
was established in 2001 as a UK based charity by Revd Simon Smith. At that time
he was the pastor of an Assemblies of God church in East London. With his wife
Jane and four young children, they obeyed God’s call to move out to the Philippines
and lived in Cebu, which is an island in the centre of the Philippines.
At the heart of their vision was a desire to make a difference, no matter how small, to
those people with whom they came into contact, recognising that above all people
need a right relationship with God.
