Getting to Know Your Ministry

Hello, my name is Minister Betty Hayes. I am a married woman of God, and my husband is Elder Wayne Hayes and we have been married for 11 Years and 4 Months . We have 3 beautiful children, Ashley 29 years old, Jeremy 26 years old, and Erica 25 years old. I am from Macon, Mississippi. I've been with New Beginnings International Ministries for 10 years. I am the director of the Drama Ministry and “A Better Me.” I am also a part of the BEST Praise and Worship Team on this side of Heaven and I am in the choir.

I have a Master's degree in Criminal Justice and I also have a MBA. With these degrees I plan to start my own business helping people with disabilities and I am currently working towards that goal. My dreams and aspirations are to have a very successful business where I can really bless the people that God has placed in my life. I want to be able to POUR spiritually and financially, INTO the lives of the people that God has used to pour into me. I want to be able to setup ministries with financial banking to advance the Kingdom of God.

My hobbies are singing, dancing (when no one is looking), arts and crafts, making jewelry, decorating cakes, cookies and candy. I want to WALK OUT the gifting that GOD has placed within me. Thing that I want more than anything is to PLEASE and Honor GOD!

In Case You Missed it...

Yesterday, during Sunday service, Pastor Daniels taught on "Receiving God's Word." She talked about how Mary and Zechariah both received a Word of the Lord from the angel, and how they both responded differently. Although Mary was concerned at first about how people would perceive her, she knew what was expected of her. Ask yourself, "where are your expectations?" Pastor Daniels said if your expectation is lining up with the word of God, it's not too high! Just know it will come to past. There are things that God has for us to do that we can not phantom.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 says, "And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe." Do you receive and welcome the word? Or do you hold on to it?

In Matthew 13:31&32 Jesus used a parable saying that the kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed. Though the mustard seed is the smallest seed, it is the largest growing plant. Pastor Daniels gave us four types of soil and asked, which one are you?

  • Wayside ground: tough and can't be penetrated. The seed just sits on the top and the enemy comes and eats the word that was given to you.
  • Stony ground: the root system is hindered and it stunts the growth of the plant and it will eventually die. The believer hears and enjoys the word only to a certain degree.
  • Thorny ground: the weeds over take the plant. The believer becomes lukewarm with their walk because the cares of the world becomes weeds in their life and have choked the word out of them. They start missing church here and there and eventually they don't come at all.
  • Good ground: the believers hears the word and produces good fruit for the kingdom of God. The believer protects the seed and their heart.

Pastor Daniels reminded everyone that when God gives you a word, He will give you the grace to get through it!
