When I wrote about walking into hell in March of 2010, I didn’t know how I would respond to what I experienced. In a million years, I never imagined what was ahead.
Two years ago this week, Mercy House became a non-profit. I introduced you to our crazy, God-sized dream. I asked for your help.
As I lay in bed that night with my husband, he said, this is what it feels like to jump out of an airplane. We were free falling with our stomachs in our throats.
But so many of you said yes with us.
Mercy House is not my story, it’s our story.
I am amazed every day at the countless miracles He works on behalf of our young moms and babies in Kenya.
This 11 minute mini-movie was created by my local church several months ago to help tell the Mercy House story. I like how my husband ends the video by asking for prayer because “most often we are at the end of our rope when God steps in.”
Last week, you helped me raise $10,000 for Violet’s Story. She is being admitted into the hospital today for her life-changing surgeries. And another group of Compassion Bloggers are heading to Peru this week, please pray and follow along with me.
I’m thankful for the wrecking and the beauty I’ve found in saying yes, for the community and support I’ve found in you.
