I’ve written about how much I love this verse in the past.
But I love it even more when I see it in action.
As is the case with everything Kristen from We Are THAT Family does.
Especially her newest project. It is truly amazing, friends.
The Mercy House.
- Annually, 26,000 women die from having an illegal, unsafe abortion in Kenya. (Center for Reproductive Rights)
- Every 30 minutes, a woman is raped in Kenya. (Nairobi Women’s Hospital)
- Mothers often force their daughters into trading sex for food in the slums (CNN)
information taken from The Mercy House website
These stats about pregnancies and abortions among young girls in Kenya is enough to make me crawl in a hole and cry – for a LONG time.
But that wouldn’t do any good.
Kristen and her family knew something needed to be done to affect this horrific climate and culture of rape and abortion in Kenya.
You MUST go read more about the journey and heart behind the Mercy House here and here.
And then hop over to the actual Mercy House site to keep up to date with all that is going on as they prepare this sanctuary for scared, pregnant young women and girls.
They need your support – prayers, donations, purchases from their fabulous shop – whatever you can do.
Just take action.
He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
And I couldn’t finish this post without adding this song – it will break and inspire you all at the same time. Shaun Groves is incredible.
Thank you for the kind words. Much needed tonight.
And thank you for spreading the word about The Mercy House. Now SHE inspires ME.
