A few months ago I met with Dr. Randy Steger, President of Healing Hands Int., to get his advice about growing Arewa Aid. His first suggestion was a name change. This suggestion had been discussed recently by our board and this was the nudge we needed to follow through. Arewa is a hard name to pronounce and if you can’t pronounce a name, you can’t remember it. Being remembered is vital to a growing organization.
Following that meeting with Dr. Steger a board resolution to change the name was passed and the process begun to seek a suitable name that broadly pictures what we are about. Under the capable direction of Brent Baldwin, former board member and a professional at this very process, we went through a six-week process of compiling and eliminating potential names. The process ended with Hope Springs International as the new name for Arewa Aid. So, effective immediately, our official name is HOPE SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL.
Our mission will continue to be helping people help themselves. We will continue to undertake projects that teach people how to fish, not just give them a fish. Our goal remains to establish works that will function and live on beyond ourselves, works that will not need continuous financial support, thus allowing your gifts today to meet the needs of tomorrow as well.
We now have a NEW BLOG SITE that reflects our name change. Click on this link: HOPE SPRINGS BLOG to be taken to the new site. When you arrive be sure to bookmark this new location for news and events relating to all the projects we are involved in. This will be the last post at this Blog Site.
You may also follow us on Twitter. We have a Facebook site for those of you on Facebook. We also have a new website under construction. When that is complete we will post the link on the new Hope Springs Blog.
If you are a supporter of Arewa Aid, now Hope Springs, your gifts are saving and changing lives. If you are not a supporter we invite you to become one. Donations and requests for information may be sent to Hope Spring, 118 Wessington Place, Hendersonville, TN 37075.

Children have an honest idealism that causes them to often see problems and challenges as having very simple solutions. They often challenge us adults with their spontaneous compassion to do something about the needs of the suffering and hurting in our world. Nathaniel Hamm is one such young man. He is the 10 year old son of Darin Hamm, Teaching Pastor for the New Heights Church in Owasso, Oklahoma. Nathaniel heard about the street children that we are working with through our farm in Maiduguri, Nigeria, and how we train these young people, much the same age as Nathaniel, in the skills of drip irrigation that enable them to return to their families and help provide food year round in this aired desert region of Northern Nigeria. He also learned of our constant need for seed for our farm and to send home with these trainees to begin their own farming efforts. What follows is Nathaniel’s story in his own words. Read and be blessed as you see what a 10 year old can do for the cause of Christ.
Seeds for Arewa Aid by Nathaniel Hamm,
I came to dad and complained that people should do more. I wanted him to get something done. He asked me why I didn’t do something.
He told me about Arewa Aid and said they could use seeds to help people in Africa. He explained about irrigation and what was happening and we agreed that I could do something to help.
So I asked my school principle if I could try to get other kids to raise seeds. She told me that I needed to talk to the Superintendent so my dad helped me send them an email.
Oh, I also emailed the man from Arewa Aid, Lee, to seed if this would help and be a good idea. He said yes and gave me a list of seeds.
So the school said I could set up a table for a week at my school. The week came and I set up a table and made poster signs with information about the seeds and what they would be used for. I had bags that my dad gave me and they each had a flyer with the information.
I also had my dad tell people at church and he put something in our church bulletin.
In the end I collected seeds from people at my school and from people in my church. I boxed up the seeds and after finding the right address my dad took me to the post office where we mailed the seeds.
I hope it helps those kids on the street find a way to stay with their family. I hope they know it is because of Jesus that this was done.
Thanks for letting me help.
Through Nathaniel’s efforts we are shipping a box of 234 packets of seeds to Nigeria. Great job Nathaniel and thanks for letting God use you to help the young people of Nigeria.
If you are encouraged and challenged by Nathaniel’s example and would like to learn how you can help drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are many ways to help, both large and small all of which allow you to make a difference in the lives of people today.
