Mer•cy – noun – compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm (Webster Dictionary)
King David once wrote:
“ And David said to Gad, I am in a great strait: let us fall now into the hand of the LORD; for his mercies are great: and let me not fall into the hand of man.” (2 Samuel 24:14)
Mercy is receiving grace, when we deserve punishment.
There are so many in this world who have fallen into the hands of man, and the results have been generation after generation of poverty and hardship.
I want to make a difference; so between now and Christmas, I have joined with Mercy House in Kenya, with the intention of sending hope to those who have little hope. And their hope, is for mercy.
Mercy to remove the reproach that is their way of life,
Mercy to remove the shame,
Mercy on their children, for one more day of food,
Mercy on their souls, for the life they have had to live to survive.
Living in the slums of Kenya is a difficult place for me to imagine visiting ; my mind cannot even comprehend a life there.
Between now and Christmas, I am partnering with Pure Charity, and (in)courage to raise money to support the Mercy House. It is a home for 12 teens moms and their 12 babies in Kenya and they are in need of transportation to a doctor, additions to a classroom, a generator, a computer room, and more space to get other teen moms off the street and into a safe home in which to learn a new life.
I am partnering to help these teen moms to find better life at The Mercy House.
