Team Of Mercy Graduates Travel To Uganda To Serve Watoto!!!

Our focus at Mercy Ministries for the past 28+ years has been to bring transformation to hurting young women one life at a time. When we first began in 1983, what we were doing seemed small, but the ripple effect that is still going on and on and on to this day has had global impact. I have watched over the years as thousands of young women have graduated the program and have gone on to make a huge difference in the lives of others, not just in this country, but also in other nations around the world.

Speaking of the ripple effect, a team of Mercy graduates will be leaving on Wednesday, July 20th for a two week mission trip to Uganda to serve Watoto Ministries ( This ministry is impacting the lives of thousands of orphans in Uganda, and now our Mercy graduates will get to go and give of their love and time during this two week period. As a part of our missions giving, we have had the privilege of building two homes for orphans in conjunction with Watoto. Now our graduates, led by two of our staff, will be traveling to Uganda for the purpose of building a set of four classrooms. Not only will our graduates be building those classrooms, but they have actually raised their own support for this trip as well as the funds to build the classrooms while there. This team will be led by Mercy staff members, Katelyn Rollins and Nandi Pryce (pictured right). There will be a total of 18 people going on this trip. I ask that you keep them in your prayers as they go. Pray for safe travels, for flights to be on time, no lost luggage, and for God’s protection and favor. Last but not least, pray for the anointing of God that destroys every yoke of bondage to totally impact the lives of the orphans as our Mercy graduates go and serve.

So excited to share with you how this ripple effect is never ending! Thanks for all you do to bring transformation to the lives of young women who the world has given up on. Your support literally makes a difference between life and death…one life at a time!!!
