Presented by Kim Brown

Sorry, audio is not yet available for this session. Please check back later.

Session Description
More than the lack of material goods, the lack of positive social relationships is what often characterizes the poor. When a person’s natural web of relationships (family, coworkers, leaders, neighbors, friends) is broken or missing, poverty becomes extremely difficult to escape. Come explore the part each of us can play in overcoming social poverty with the power of the Gospel.

Speaker Info

Facilitated by Dr. Kim Freidah Brown, Country Director, FH / Nicaragua

Kim Brown was raised in the small town of Sag Harbor, NY, the daughter of two educators who instilled in her a deep love of learning and people. As a high school exchange student to Ecuador, her heart was stirred by the extreme poverty in the midst of golden cathedrals and her faith challenged her to live it out. In 1978 she married Ken, a Presbyterian pastor, and they began ministry with Latinos in New Mexico and Arizona. Kim worked as a teacher, counselor and school psychologist until they were called to mission service in Mexico in 1992 and then to Nicaragua in 1995. Kim joined FH as Country Director in 2002 and loves how per position encourages her to keep learning, serving, and collaborating with wonderful staff, colleagues, visiting teams, college students, and community members.

Facilitated by Jewel Anita Hendrix, Director of Field Programs, Food for the Hungry

Growing up, Jewel Anita Hendrix dreamed of teaching at inner-city schools in the United States. But God had other plans. After she graduated from college, God placed Jewel Anita in Guatemala as a school teacher where she became concerned about the social problems facing her each day. After twelve years of working on her own, she joined Food for the Hungry to address the physical and spiritual needs of Guatemalans. She continued to serve with Food for the Hungry in Guatemala for nine years, leading child development programs.

Presented by Victor Cortez

Session Description
Poverty is not merely lack of income or material possessions. Poverty includes deprivation of basic human development. In Guatemala, high rates of chronic malnutrition in children under two years old prevent them from developing to the full physical, intellectual and spiritual potential that God has given them. In this session, we will discuss the complex origins of malnutrition and the importance of addressing chronic malnutrition in Guatemala and around the world.
