(in)Mercy Phase Five

Expand the vision and capacity of Mercy House Kenya


A second home will allow space to help more girls, and in the future it will serve as a place for classrooms, all programs and offices.

In the summer of 2013, Mercy House was able to purchase its first permanent home. It's a six-bedroom home that currently houses 12 resident moms and their 12 babies, under the age of 2 1/2. It also includes a small educational space, an office, skills development, vocational programs, storage, etc. It's a crowded, busy place!

Immediately after purchasing this first residential home, Mercy House began saving funds for a second home nearby. Not only will it allow space to help more girls, it will serve as the future home to house classrooms, all programs and offices.

Our goal is to raise $53,000 to help build this second home for Mercy House.

    Woohoo!! Thank you all SO MUCH for supporting this fun way to share the word about #inMercy!!! We can't wait to see the impact of our Thunderclap on Wednesday.

    If you'd like, keep spreading the word. The more supporters we get, the louder our Thunderclap will be - and the closer we'll be to our goal of funding Phase 5 (a second home!!!) of (in)Mercy!

    As our own Ann Voskamp said in today's (in)courage post:

    It is time: We are all done with the drug of comfortable and dare to live the dream of uncomfortable.

    It is time: We’re all wanting uncomfortable because we’re wanting God – and He is outside of our comfort zones.

    It’s time: We’re all wanting to go home for Christmas — go home to Jesus — so we’re making room for Jesus.

    It’s time — we’re launching today – We’re building a HOME and making room for the Baby…

    THANK YOU for your support, friends. Happy, happy Monday to you!

    Love,
    the (in)Mercy team

Designed by DaySpring to be an online home for the hearts of women, you might think about (in)courage as a bit like a beach house. It’s that place where you can put your sandy, dirty feet on the coffee table, laugh late into the night with friends, and also hear God’s voice clearer than perhaps anywhere else.

A team of 30 women write for (in)courage on a regular basis – each blogger sharing a post a month that God has placed on her heart for this community. They range from single women to mommy bloggers to grandmas, each with unique cultural and ethnic backgrounds too. They are entrepreneurs, artists, designers, educators, New York Times bestselling authors, missionaries, photographers, and friends. And while they span continents, cultures, and life callings, they all share a common love for Jesus Christ.
