We are so excited to announce we added a new administrative assistant position this year, and we asked Any to fill the role. Any is a long-time friend of our ministry as she’s the wife of one of long-time bus drivers, Rafa. We are thrilled to have Any and her boys Matthew and Jared alongside Rafa this year at Beach Christmas.

As we grow in staff and in responsibilities, we needed someone here to help with the finances and basic office work of running a nonprofit organization. It’s only a part-time position, and that worked well for Any. She had to quit working her full-time job previously because of health issues, so a part-time position allowed her a better balance. She manages the books, pays several of the bills, keeps track of petty cash for the staff and and handles the transportation and other financial needs of our young adults.

Any has become an important staff member. I don’t know how we survived without an administrative assistant before. We hope you will help us reward Any by sponsoring her trip with us to Beach Christmas!
