US Staff and Key Volunteers

Paul G. Hanson

Executive Director

Paul comes to Hands of Love USA with a passion for Uganda and a servant’s heart for its vulnerable population. He believes every person is under the guiding hand of God and each person, when provided with dignity and opportunity, can be positively impacted and in turn impact others.

Paul and Lisa attend Free Chapel Church in Gainesville, GA and he is an active member of the host team for Souly Business.

Laura Brady


As one of Hands of Love USA’s first child sponsors, Laura was a long-time ministry partner well before joining Hands of Love USA’s staff in 2017.

Before working with Hands of Love USA, Laura spent 13 years in the private sector where she provided financial services to small organizations and businesses. After choosing to stay home with her young children, Laura volunteered to lead Dave Ramsey financial classes at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church for 9 years while handling the finances of several non-profit organizations.

Laura is a proud wife and mother, loves running, doing yard work, and spending time outside working on her urban farm. She has a huge heart for Uganda’s orphans and abandoned children and is thrilled to see how God will use her to further the mission of Hands of Love USA.

Nora Charlesworth

Intercessory Prayer

Before leading the Hands of Love USA prayer team, Nora spent seven years serving as the Director of Hands of Love USA. During her time as Director her two primary focuses were building the young ministry’s operations and strengthening the relationships between the US team, the Ugandan team and the US partner base.

While she knew that her work as Director would make an impact on the ministry, she did not know how much it would transform her heart and her life. Using the ministry leadership’s radical dependence on God as a model, the Lord began to cultivate a much deeper desire for intimacy with God in Nora. She is now more passionate than ever about studying scripture, discipling women and fostering intimacy with God in others.

Prior to Hands of Love USA, Nora served with High Tech Ministries, spent several years in corporate finance, and received degrees in both finance and marketing from Washington University in St. Louis. She is a full-time mom to two boys, lives in Johns Creek, GA, with her family and is a member of Perimeter Church.
