Do you know who the most oppressed group of people are in the world?
All around the world, girls long to receive an education, to live without the absolute terror of violent sexual crimes committed against them at home, in their neighborhoods, as they walk to school. The cycle of poverty and violence and the unbelievable injustice in our world runs deep and we cannot ignore it.
Simply put, in many countries, it’s life-threatening to be female.
At Mercy House, we seek to break this cycle in the name of Jesus. And I’m convinced, this is done through prayer.
And so, we invite you to pray for the endangered girls in our world today with this simple idea:
It’s a bit of twine.
And a single heart.
It’s a simple reminder to pray.
It’s an easy way to share their story.
It’s a bracelet that’s supposed to fall off.
This is the perfect service project for you and your kids, family, and groups.
Order a Love Mercy Bracelet Kit (Makes 25 Bracelets):
This idea was inspired not only to raise needed funds to help more girls in Kenya; it was also inspired as a practical hands-on service project activity for families, kids groups or Bible studies to do together.
If you’d like to do a service project with your family, a church or children’s group, you can order a kit of 25 for $10 (to cover expenses and shipping) and serve Mercy House by putting the bracelets together. You can return them for us to sell or you can help by selling them to friends and family for $10 each. Kits are available here.
Service Project: Easy 3-step instructions and supplies to make 25 bracelets are included in each kit. We’d love for you to sell the bracelets to family and friends and we ask that any unsold bracelets or funds are returned within 30 days of receipt.
This instruction guide is included with each kit:
Prayer is the most powerful tool we possess to empower oppressed girls in our world.
