Project Main Details
For years, Hendrik marketed much of his art in the United States at hunting expos and private exhibitions. He made a comfortable living producing and selling his art. But then his life took a turn.
After twelve successful trips to America, the U.S. government notified Hendrik that he would need a work permit to conduct future business. Unable to obtain that permit, he was forced to halt his exhibitions in the U.S., which were his main sources of income. At the same time, Hendrik was experiencing an ever-increasing cost of living as he struggled to raise and educate his two children. His financial circumstances continued to get worse and worse over the next few years and finally came to a point in two thousand and six when he found himself unable to sell enough art to pay his monthly bills.
The stress became unbearable. Hendrik had reached a low point both financially and psychologically and became deeply depressed. He even began to contemplate suicide going so far as to think about which rifle he should use.
He knew he needed help.
Then everything changed. Hendrik heard about a Crown seminar in his area. He felt he had no place left to go so as a last resort, he registered for the seminar. He desperately hoped he could find an answer to his financial trouble.
At the seminar, the very first thing Hendrik heard was that God owns everything. Hendrik realized that “everything” meant the entire world, including Hendrik, his art, and his business. This thought alone began to change Hendrik’s life. Right then, he decided to turn over everything he owned—including his work and his artistic talents - to God.
That night Hendrik Prayed:
“The way I’m acting and conducting this business is leading me to bankruptcy and suicide. I hand over my business to You, O God.
“From now on, I am working for You, for Your business. I shall work as hard and honest as I can and follow biblical principles.
“I trust in You to send customers to buy my art, so that I do not have to constantly worry about how to pay my monthly bills. I trust You implicitly to make Your business work.”
Hendrik immediately felt as if a mountain had been lifted off his shoulders. He couldn’t stop smiling because his depression had vanished.
Immediately after the Crown seminar Hendrik left for a planned business trip to Canada. He couldn’t wait to start selling his art. While on the trip Hendrik shared the Gospel and the message of Jesus’ love for everyone. Financially and spiritually, the trip was a huge success for Hendrik.
God opened many new doors for Hendrik and his business. By dedicating his work to God, Hendrik turned his life around. Today, he says “God takes care of His own business and I just concentrate on producing the artwork that I love.”
