God has been tugging at my heart for a while now to reach beyond my walls and do something to give back to Him. Mercy House Kenya caught my attention about 2 years ago and I kept thinking, "I wish I could help," but I really didn't know how to help. When I saw the idea of running Miles for Mercy, I started to cry uncontrollably and I realized that this was the way I could give! Mercy House rescues pregnant young women in Africa and gives them a place to live and birth their babies, but also so much more. These women are introduced to the hope of Jesus Christ, as well as given educational and vocational skills that can help them to break the cycles of poverty that they have been in. I plan on running a 5k race in the months of April, May, June, and July in an effort to raise awareness and support for Mercy House. I ask you to prayerfully consider supporting me as I pursue this adventure which I pray stretches me physically and spiritually. Even if you cannot give, please keep Mercy House and the work that they do in your prayers!
