Background
His Healing Helping Hands International Ministries, or 4 H. I. M., is a 501(c)3 non-profit Christian organization that aims to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the under served of the world. Beginning at its inception in 1999, 4 H. I. M. began sending out supplies and short-term mission teams to complete construction projects, facilitate medical clinics, and support local schools and churches through evangelistic outreaches, leadership training, and children’s ministry. 

 

Since 1999, 4 H. I. M. has sent people and/or supplies to over 60 countries on five continents. In addition to supporting and partnering with global ministries, 4 H. I. M. collaborates with several organizations in the Oklahoma City metroplex.

Currently we send teams to assist local pastors or missionaries in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Haiti, Mexico, Sierra Leone, Togo and Honduras. We are also partners with inner-city ministries in New York City, and Oklahoma City. Our teams facilitate medical clinics and vacation Bible schools; participate in benevolent outreaches; do evangelism; build houses, churches, and schools; implement micro-economic projects; and establish small and medium enterprises.

 

Ultimately, we mobilize teams of people and the resources needed to reach the nations. In doing this we are able to support the indigenous church in other nations, who in turn, are able to sustain the ministry of the church in their communities along with supporting on-going projects within the United States.

 

4 H. I. M. was founded by Steve Hollingsworth, a resident of Edmond, OK and Steve has personally served on or led over 150 teams and has traveled to over 30 nations. Steve and his wife, Nancy, have been married since 1978.

4 H. I. M. activities are overseen by a board of 12 trustees along with over 30 pastoral and advisory board members. 

Impact
1. The start up of a 3000 hen Poultry operation. The proceeds will go towards supporting a Primary school, The Kalaveria Primary School in Badoughbe Togo. The operation is now operating with 2000 chickens at or near laying age. Soon the last 1000 chickens will be purchased. Currently there has been several different crops planted on the land using manure fertilizer from the barn and drip irrigation. In the end the profits from the egg sales and harvested crops are producing some of the needed funds to subsidize the Kalaveria School and it also provides a hands-on learning experience for the students.
 
2. Support the Primary and Secondary school in Thonglong, Manipur India. The first new building is completed and we will soon start the first of the remaining three new buildings. This school is providing an good Christian education to over 200 students in a remote village where there had been no school at all.
 
3. We are assisting in the completion of the construction of building The Garden View Hospital in Makeni Sierra Leone. Our first phase to complete the building is to complete the Maternity Ward. Sierra Leone has one of the highest mortality rates for mothers and children in the world and this hospital is making a huge difference in this community.
 
4. Supporting and assisting in finishing the building of the Great Harvest Bible College in Chennai India.
 
5. We will continue in supporting and expanding the buildings at the CEHBED orphanage on the outskirts of Lome Togo. The orphanage building needs the completion of the security wall and a new boys dorm. Then the original building can be converted to a school and Pastor Celestine will start a bew Primary School which will bring in some income for the running of the orphanage.
Needs
1. Construction of the final three Thonglong school buildings. $30,000
 
2. Finishing the Maternity Ward of the Garden View Hospital $20,000
 
3. Finishing the Great Harvest Bible College building $100,000
 
4. Finish improvement to the CEHBED orphanage $75,000
 
5. Increase the General Monthly support of 4H.I.M. to $120,000 per year.
CEO/Executive Director Statement

4H.I.M. empowers people to reach their fullest potential. We only provide the help they know they need, not the help we think they need.

It could be health care assistance as in primary care clinics or lifesaving surgeries and other medical interventions. We provide prosthetic limbs for amputees or mobility solutions for polio victims and amputees. It could mean digging a well and/or water systems in places where people get sick or die from dirty water. We provide a portion of the resources needed for a community through grants, so that they can build schools or churches. We actively seek out communities where establishing a micro-loan program or providing grants for small and medium enterprises can change the lives of hundreds if not thousands.

Our approach is not the same in any nation or community. Once we discover what is needed we go about a process of fund raising and networking to provide the best solutions without trying to reinvent the wheel.

We establish our help with the locals pastors and leaders connecting the people of the community with the church. We also provide pastoral training and evangelism training to those who need it.

Our ministry gives life though word, action, and tangible assistance. Our programs have a basic plan and strategy that has a beginning and end. Through our partnerships we make every attempt to establish self sustainability and the vision for growth and prosperity apart from our help always pointing to Christ as our source and theirs.

Board Chair Statement
4H.I.M. is governed by a Board Of Trustees that includes up to twelve people. Our Trustees serve for three year terms. We also have a Board of Advisers and a Pastoral Board of Advisers. With one employee (President and Founder, Steve Hollingsworth) the organization is very reliant on volunteers and donors. The great majority of our volunteers, Board Members, and donors are the same people who have traveled overseas to assist in fulfilling our vision and purpose. The greatest challenges apart from the projects themselves is maintaining a healthy balance between administering the projects and avoiding "mission drift". Each project requires a large degree of planning and fundraising, but ultimately we have to focus of the fulfillment of the basic purpose of the projects. Personally, I never want 4H.I.M. to become so focused on the nuts and bolts of fundraising and logistics, that we forget our purpose is to help people.

The local populations are receiving better health care, education, and nutrition. The mortality rate among women and children can be cut drastically.

Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
The biggest challenge to fulfilling the vision that our projects represent is always having enough resources. With our projects we challenge the indigenous leaders to do as much as possible without our help. We monitor the projects and visit the sites regularly, but progress is slow because of the lack of resources and the nature of our model.

Comments on Staff & Management
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments Since 4H.I.M. is a small organization the Board of Trustees and the President (Steve Hollingsworth) talk and communicate on a regular basis to discuss current projects and possible future projects. Also, in light of the fact that working in other nations and cultures, creates challenges that are great and extremely different from place to place. Developing strategies and plans that are effective to the various challenges is fluid and always changing. One of the key points in our mission is to do only what is needed and has been asked for from our overseas partners. The result of meeting those challenges is to have close and regular communication between the Trustees and the President of 4H.I.M.

Comments on Board & Governance
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments FINANCIALS: Our financial reports and graphs are a bit misleading because we have operated a medical surplus warehouse in the past. In 2010 we stopped taking in donations of medical in-kind donations because of lack of staffing. Yet, we continued to send out those in-kind medical supplies over the last four years. As a result, in our reports, it appears that we have more going out then we have had coming in. In truth, our cash flow has been fine, even though the reports look differently. It is because of the emptying of our in-kind medical surplus inventory that our financial reports seem skewed. Our bank balance always runs between $20,000 to $70,000 depending on the timing of our projects and we have never spent more then we took in. As of the end of 2013 we have sent out nearly all of our in-kind inventory.
