General

All Nations foundation channels funds to associations and foundations in countries where the activities of the foundation are carried out. Local brothers in these countries manage these funds. The objectives are the same in every country, although the activities are determined by special needs in the countries concerned. In this way the funds are spent effectively and fairly.

Accountancy

In the countries where All Nations foundation is expanding its activities, administrative groups of brothers have been formed that manage the funds transferred to them through the foundation for carrying out its objectives. National brothers bear the main responsibility in the countries in question. They manage the funds transferred to them through their bank accounts or in cash during visits. Hilvert Wijnholds was involved in the founding of these administrative groups and is a counsellor of each of them.
  • The administrative group is responsible to the governmental offices with regard to the public activities that the Lord gives us to do in His work, formulated in: the statutes with their objectives
  • the by-laws (or internal rules)
  • instructions for the board.
The responsibility of the brothers who are members of these groups is limited to the material aspects of the work:
  • Management of funds, already allocated after deliberation for the expenses of, for example, Bible conferences, youth camps, printing of booklets and gospel tracts, building projects and visits
  • Maintenance of movable and immovable properties that belong to the foundation
  • Importation, transport, and distribution of Christian literature in these countries
The objectives are the same in each country (see also OBJECTIVES of All Nations), although the activities depend on the special needs in the country in question (see below).
  • Hilvert Wijnholds and other brothers (see newsletters) regularly visit these countries to: attend Bible conferences and visit assemblies
  • attend the discussions about progress and the annual meetings of the administrative groups
  • consult on current matters with the board
  • counsel on projects like teaching how to read and write, translation work, promotion of health care, and small-scale gardening and agricultural projects.

Funds

The foundation receives funds from persons and local assemblies at home and abroad. Besides direct transfers to the All Nations foundation, funds are also transferred through other foundations that pass on such funds to All Nations. These funds are meant to be supplementary: the local population in the African lands contribute according to their means and abilities. In most countries an administrative group is required that is responsible to the governmental offices concerning the public activities that the Lord gives us to do in His work. The responsibility of the brothers who are members of these groups is limited to the material aspects of the work. In each administrative group some brothers together form a board for the daily routine matters. Four times a year they draw up a budget for the coming three months, asking the Lord to provide funds for the needs listed in the budget. Four times a year these brothers are assisted by a committee of workers that checks the accounting with them. During the annual meeting, all documents are discussed, and after that they are submitted to the appropriate officials. This administrative work requires much time, both at home after consideration by email or phone, and during visits. But this is necessary to carry on in an orderly way the ‘ministry of the gospel’ and the ‘ministry of the assembly’ (Col.1:23-25).
