BENEFITING: The Mercy Maternity House, Inc.
We as a couple have been convicted in the last few years to give out of the abundance that God has given us. Mercy House is a global ministry that we discovered several years ago through the blog “We are that Family”. The mission of Mercy House is to “…engage, empower and disciple women around the globe in Jesus’ name”. One function of Mercy House is to rescue women, most often pregnant teenagers, and provide them with a safe environment, means to provide for both their child and themselves, and most importantly disciple these women in a relationship with God. When we found out that we could both run the Kentucky Derby half marathon together and fundraise for Mercy House at the same time, we were very excited! One lesson that we have quickly learned in this journey together is that training for a half-marathon at this stage in life requires time icing sore legs at night ☺ Please prayerfully consider joining us in raising money for this wonderful ministry that gives women and children hope and a future. If you want to know more about this ministry please visit their website at http://www.mercyhousekenya.org Thank you! If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. I John 3:17-18
