Meet the Board (Kim Hendrix)


My name is Kim Hendrix.  I was asked to be on the Board in the capacity of Secretary/Treasurer.  I have worked in accounting for the past 20 years.    What an honor and privilege it is to be a part of New Beginnings.  They have such a passion for orphans.  I am so excited to see what God has in store for them.  You may ask why Honduras, why not here in the USA?  Well, why not?  God calls us to go not only in our communities, but to the uttermost ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8)  About six years ago our church had an Orphan Sunday, which Julie had a big part in that walked you through a typical day of an orphan.  I must say it was a real eye opener for me.  My husband and I decided that we wanted to do our part to help out, so, we started doing foster care.  The next year we had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to a third world country, and again it was a real eye opener.  During this trip, we saw some kids kitchens. They were set up to give the kids one hot meal a day.  Lots of time this was the ONLY meal they got.  We are all God’s children, and we are all called to serve.  It takes a lot of faith to step out and do what Ben, Julie, Austin, and Taylor are doing, faith that He will provide for them.  They are giving up everything they have as far as comfort and going to a place that has such poverty, but they are doing what God calls us all to do, follow as the spirit leads! In Philippians 2:4 it says do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.  They will need support whether it is being a prayer partner or giving to help support them financially.  Even if you can only give $5.00 a month or a one-time gift it will be used to further the kingdom of God.  Won’t you please pray about what God would have you do?  

In Him,

Kim
