Hands and Feet Ministries was started by Roy and Michelle Adams in 2000. In then summer of 1999 Roy Adams led a menʼs short-term mission trip to Chamacueros, MX. On that trip Roy's life was forever changed. As a result he desired to take his wife and children on a mission trip with him the next year. Roy was compelled to start Hands and Feet Ministries when, after expressing his desire to the group he had traveled with the year before, he was told that the mission field is no place for women or children.
Ten years later Hands and Feet Ministries had lead over 10,000 men, women, and children across the border of Mexico to serve on short-term mission trips. In Mexico, Hands and Feet Ministries has helped with the construction of 12 churches, 3 schools, 2 orphanages, 1 medical clinic, and several houses.
We have also been involved in disaster relief, held medical clinics for hundreds of people, and served thousands of children with summer Vacation Bible Schools. Starting in 2007 through partnerships with missionaries in Gallup, New Mexico, we began providing mission trip opportunities to a Navajo Indian reservation.
In years past we have also been able to partner with other ministries and provide people with the opportunity to serve in countries including Belize, Guatemala and Honduras.
In 2008 God opened a door for us to serve in our local community by opening Heavenly Hand Me Downs, a second hand store in Adairsville, GA. From the store we have been able to organize food drives, local disaster relief, and other forms of mercy ministry.
In 2009 Hands and Feet Ministries committed to fund, administrate, and grow to the best of our abilities a tuition-free Christian elementary school in the poverty stricken neighborhood of Lazaro Cardenas in Nava Mexico. Nava School was a project we had worked on for several years, and in 2009 it was in danger of losing all it's financial and administrative support. Knowing that the school was bearing fruit we felt compelled to help save Nava School. Our commitment was made to the teachers, parents, and community of Lazaro Cardenas. Being such a large commitment, this school has become our primary outreach, and where the majority of our work is done. Currently the school is staffed by members of the community of Nava and the surrounding areas who have a degree in education.
