Healing Hands International
In 1991, Dr. Randy Steger, marketing professor at Lipscomb University, presented a proposal to his students to do a different type of project for the end of the semester. He suggested they seek to meet the mounting needs for medical supplies and equipment in the former Soviet Union and other Eastern European nations. This humanitarian work would utilize the energy and abilities of the students to make a significant difference in the lives of others and the class was ready for the challenge.
They determined to secure three to four suitcases filled with medical supplies and equipment to send overseas with missionaries. They ended up being quite successful. Lipscomb finally had to ask them to leave campus because the donated supplies were taking over the auditorium! The day they packed up to leave campus they were able to fill two tractor trailers with all of the donated items.
Through this urgent need for humanitarian relief the students organized the Healing Hands ministry, which was later incorporated as Healing Hands International in 1993. Since acquiring a 501c3 status in 1996, the Lord has truly blessed this work and HHI has been able to ship to more than 75 countries.
The need has been established. The pipeline of resources has been tapped. What was once an idea has become a tool to provide aid to people suffering throughout the world. Most importantly, this ministry has proven to be an excellent way to give glory to God and bring recognition to the local church.
