About us

About The Ministry:

Heart n Hands is a missionary organization that is dedicated to bringing Jesus, His Kingdom and His Way of doing and being right, to the nations. Jesus commanded all of us to “Go Ye…” His intent was that we make disciples; people who are learners and followers of Him. We are obeying His mandate.

Heart n Hands was eventually birthed after Tom went to Moscow with Josh McDowell Ministries on a Care-lift Mission Trip. He came home with a “Honey can we do” list and presented it to Nancy. On the list was simple items easily found every day in America, but not so easily acquired in Belarus. Out of a simple project of Christian love and compassion, sprang forth an international ministry! These days Tom still volunteers with Gain USA which specializes in humanitarian aid, while Nancy concentrates on her calling.

Nancy explains:

I was minding my own business, driving home from work when God spoke to me to start Heart and Hands. So, I did.  Then later He told me "I am sending you to Africa." And HE did!

Like Paul, my personal goal is that I may KNOW Him both intimately and deeply! That I may [actually] be found and known as in Him, not having any [self-achieved] righteousness that can be called my own, based on my obedience to the Law's demands (ritualistic uprightness and supposed right standing with God thus acquired), but possessing that [genuine righteousness] which comes through faith in Christ (the Anointed One), the [truly] right standing with God, which comes from God by [saving] faith. [For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope] That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body]. Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own. (Philippians 3:9-12 Amplified.)

It is out of this relationship that I minister by the Holy Spirit to those around me, and where ever God sends me! To draw others along with me into this Love Relationship with Jesus, that we not just know Him as Lord and Savior, but as The Bridegroom desperately in love with His Bride!  And that all of us who name the name of Christ, would be about the Father' business of expanding HIS Kingdom here on earth.
