I am the Campus Pastor at a Christian University from the states. We send around 100 students on dozens of trips all over the world each year, but I have personally never experienced a missions organization like Show Mercy. The work they are doing in Uganda is transforming the communities here, meeting the needs of the people around them in every way imaginable! We participated in a variety of ministries including preaching the gospel, ministering to the elderly, going on home visits for sponsored children, teaching English to adults, visiting schools, praying for the sick, serving in the medical clinic, spending time with those in prison, helping on the farm, hosting church services, and so much more. The team at Show Mercy is unlike any I have ever worked with. They are kind, hospitable, accommodating, and fun. On the field, they do not stand behind the scenes as translators, but they partner with us each day to minister to the people that they have committed their lives to serving. To say that I recommend Show Mercy would be an understatement. I plan on partnering with Show Mercy to send university students here each year.
I was given so much more from my experience than I gave back! What an eye opening trip, and I feel it brought me so much closer to God. It really awakens your faith!
I was in Uganda for two weeks, and my only complaint is I wish I couldve stayed much longer. It is a well run organization and as a volunteer, they take great care of you. You really get to feel like you're part of the outreach team and will meet people that will change your life. Amazing experience!
My visit was entirely too short to this amazing ministry. The outreach that they have into multiple communities was nothing short of phenomenal. I loved how the villages reacted with excitement when we would arrive. The staff made us feel welcome and immediately part of the SMI family. As a nurse, having the medical clinic and plans for a birthing center also showed me that their commitment to Uganda was more than just spreading the Word but to help increase the physical health as well as the spiritual health of the people that they serve. The trip also eased any doubts I may have had with the sponsorship program. I was a part to a beautiful reunion of a sponsor and her child. I immediately became a sponsor when I returned home. My goal is to go back and help their continued commitment to serve Him.
My first introduction to Show Mercy was a couple years ago when doing an internet search of ministries in Uganda, Africa. While on their site checking them out I decided to glance at the children available to sponsor. One of the very first I saw was named Brenda... which is my name... and she tugged at my heart strings , so I immediately signed up to sponsor her.
Fast forward to a couple months ago when I learned I’d be in Uganda. I reached out to the staff at Show Mercy and they let me know that YES I could meet my girl.
When the day arrived, I was beyond excited, along with being a tad nervous.
The meeting was AMAZING!!! It made the whole thing so much more REAL and special!! The time flew by and I am already thinking about the next time I can go visit her... hopefully for a longer period.
The people at Show Mercy were just incredible the few days that I was there on the grounds. It made my heart so happy to have it confirmed that I’d indeed chosen a quality organization to support and be involved with.
Show Mercy has been a crucial part of my story for years. It is through this incredible organization that I found my passion in the health field and in life! I could not be more blessed to be apart of the SMI Team!
I took a two week trip to Show Mercy International, the two weeks changed my life. The staff at the base are encouraging and always putting others before them. It's a great place to go and serve and get your feet wet for either long term missions or short term. I went for two weeks to test out the missionary life and see where it takes me. By the end of the trip, I experienced sharing the gospel with prisoners, hanging out and loving on the kids, sharing and praying for the sick at the local medical clinic, and really getting to know family while at the base they have. I didn't want to leave and pray for God to open doors and confirm full time Missions for me!
These past two weeks I have served on a short-term missions team with Show Mercy, and have been overwhelmed by their hospitality and heart for Jesus. This was my first missions experience and it exceeded my expectations in many ways. The staff here truly cares about each individual, and invests in them and their walks with Jesus. We partook in many different outreaches into local communities while being here; many of which were new and challenging for me. Though some aspects were challenging, I felt supported the entire way and saw enormous growth in my personal walk with Jesus. Being here, I saw the exemplification of what it means to have faith like a child, and to trust Jesus to provide in all situations. This place is Christ-centered and lives out their missions statement to live life on purpose and reach out in love. I am very thankful for the opportunity to have come here, and would recommend it to all!
My experience with Show Mercy International exceeded all of my expectations. This organization operates out of a heart for the people of Uganda. Their mission to mobilize, inspire, and empower is evidently expressed in their outreach and service projects. I definitely support this organization and the work that they are doing in Uganda.
Coming to Uganda has been the best experience of my life. Being at Show Mercy has really helped me grow spiritually, physically, and emotionally. This organization has not only changed this community, but has also changed my perspective of the world. Their aim is to not just provide short term solutions, but really work to see positive long term changes. The staff are all here to reach out in love and not just for their own gain. Being here for two months, they have all personally developed a relationship with me which I believe is one of the major reasons why they see so much fruitfulness in the community surrounding Show Mercy. The ministry we do has really helped me grown in boldness and obedience with the Lord. If I come back to Uganda to pursue ministry, I would pick Show Mercy to call home.
Show Mercy International is an incredible organization to work with! They are involved in many ministries and all of their ministries bare so much fruit! The staff here is incredible. The hospitality team will make you feel at home and the accommodations are great! I highly recommend partnering with Show Mercy!
I have loved serving with Show Mercy SO MUCH. Never in my life have I seen so many fruitful ministries and the power of the gospel so on display. Hearts are being forever changed because of the work Show Mercy is doing. They serve the elderly, in prisons, do evangelism and have an incredible child sponsorship program. This ministry is amazing! I hope to partner with them again in the future.
I have been working with/at Show Mercy for a couple months. I love their vision and what they are doing. Show Mercy International is really investing and transforming an entire community. Their ministry is changing lives and has long lasting fruit both for the locals as well as short term missionaries lives get changed!!
I worked with Show Mercy for two and a half month in Uganda and it was an amazing experience! They really make a difference in the community around them. They are changing kids and Jajjas (elderly) lives with their sponsorship program.
I spent two and a half months here at Show Mercy in Uganda. Show Mercy is such an organized, productive but also biblical based ministry. I loved having such packed days spending time loving on kids, teenagers and the elderly. We saw so much fruit because of all of the long term ministry they have invested here. All of the staff are incredibly helpful and teach you the language and culture as you go, so you don't feel like an outsider. Needless to say, Show Mercy is doing long term ministry extremely well. I feel really blessed to have gotten to work with them.
What an honor it has been to serve with Show Mercy Uganda. Though they are an organization who's number one goal is to confront others with the love and testimony of Jesus Christ - they are efficient with their time, utilize their resources well, carry incredible business ethics and a strategic ministry approach that betters the communities, schools, churches, businesses, and people around them. They are truly the model embodiment of how a fantastic non-profit operates. Thanks Show Mercy for all that you do!
I had the privilege of working with Show Mercy for almost three months. It was one of the greatest things I have ever done. They are who they say they are. They embody so many things of the bible with the way the love on this community. One of my favorite parts about SMI is the sponsorship program. They give these kids everything they need to do life well. They give them food, medical treatment, schooling and most importantly they teach them about the Lord. I love SMI. I have been to a lot of different missions organizations and SMI does everything so well. I have loved my time here, and will for sure be back.
It has been my honor and privilege to work for Show Mercy for almost five months. When I met Mike and Lori, their joy for what they are doing hit me square in the heart. I knew that I HAD to be involved with Show Mercy, how could I not?? Over four months later I am even more inspired by them, and motivated by their vision. I get the opportunity to visit Show Mercy Uganda in two weeks and cannot wait to meet the incredible, hard-working folks who work at the Field of Dreams who I have gotten to know via email. Show Mercy is truly lead by God and fueled by His love.
I’ve had the privilege of working with Show Mercy International for the last 4 years and it’s the most team-focused workplace I know. We are constantly building each other up and dedicate fully the time and resources God-given to those we serve, and who serve with us.
We’re a people of excellence who always have fun doing what we do and if you haven’t already, come experience a season in your life you’ll forever treasure!!!!
Such an amazing and life changing non profit organization directed by an amazing couple who are passionate about saving and changing lives and are prepared to suffer themselves to see lives changed and transformed and also invest so much into what they do and believe.
