Padmore’s initial efforts in 1998 were the start of Hinds Feet Ministries, a nonprofit that just celebrated its 15th year. She planned for the ministry to have a threefold mission: education, evangelism and equipping.
“She started Hinds Feet just in time, in the midst of one of the toughest times in the country’s history, when a lot of people around the world were writing it off,” said Rev. Michael Mattar, senior pastor at Hope Fellowship Church in Sterling, and a Hinds Feet board member. “Trypetus had a good job, and just left. We were worried about her safety, going back to the country, to the jungles, leaving the amenities of home behind to reach the people.”
Padmore found a land where an entire generation of adults had been killed in the various wars, and she found the next generation in jeopardy as well.
