Kimberley (Kim) Hodgkiss

Location: Honduras, Latin America & the Caribbean

Ministry Focus: Since 2011, Kim has been serving with PAOC, first as an English teacher and now as Director at a training centre for teenage girls in Trujillo (Tru-HEE-yo), Honduras. The Ministry Training Centre, founded in 2002, provides training for teenagers whose families cannot afford education beyond the sixth grade. The girls live at the Centre from Monday to Friday where they learn vocational skills, such as sewing, cooking, computers, business, and English. Graduates of the two-year program also receive sewing machines to help provide for their families. In addition, students learn the Bible and Christian values, and many come to know the Lord personally. The skills and resources these young women gain not only helps equip them for success in this life, but also impact them for eternity!

Ministry History: For over twenty years Kim has sensed God’s call to “the nations” and has wondered where and when the Lord would send her. After Bible College, Seminary, and 14 years of teaching ESL in Vancouver, Kim went to Honduras and has never looked back!
