Dear Friends and Partners,
It is another wonderful opportunity for me and the entire team of NHMI to share with you what God is doing through us in West Africa. It is our belief that God has remained faithful to you over the past few months. We thank God for your investment in us through your prayers and financial support. We hope this provides you with a fresh update of the return on your investment.

Partnerships and Networks
NHMI has sought to nurture existing and explore new mission partnerships. We must confess that the first quarter of the year 2015, was very busy for us both in the states and West Africa.

We greatly value the continued partnership with MTW, Pathway learning formerly known as Global church advancement, Evangelical Presbyterian church of Togo, Niger and Burkina Faso and many other churches and organizations both in U.S and Africa. In pursuing our partnerships and fundraising efforts we continue to visit churches in several states, preaching and also sharing NHMI vision, current projects, and the challenges of our ministry in West Africa.

They came to work with NHMI as we continue to explore Alliance academy Christian school Project. For the months of January and February, they worked with Gabriel surveying, researching and working with various town officials, teachers, parents the region and the city of Anie laying a better foundation for the upcoming project of Alliance Christian Academy School. The presence of the team had a huge impact on the ground and we are looking forward to more in the future.
