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.

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.

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 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.

Show Mercy is incredible! I was there from December 2015-March 2016 with YWAM, and absolutely loved it! The staff are wonderful and welcoming, the children/elderly that we worked with are still very dear to my heart, and the whole trip was so life-bringing. Jesus is moving greatly in Uganda, and he is using this organization to do it.

My daughter Emily has my daughter Emily has had the honor to serve as an intern this summer in Uganda. We have been so blessed by some of the stories we have heard and are waiting to hear many more when she arrives home here shortly in a few days. We have felt God nudging at our hearts to sponsor some children thru the program. We hope to someday meet our children that we sponsor. Love seeing the updates and all the smiles. Those smiles come from the love of Jesus that people are pouring out In lives in Uganda.

Eden's Song Ministry is so proud to have partnered with this amazing ministry for the past 8 years. Not only do the founders, Mike and Lori, truly have a passion for their work in Uganda, they love those they are on this journey with. We have been to Field of Dreams to see first hand how they serve the people through their medical clinic , fresh well water, the acres of farm, as well as the hundreds of children being fed, clothed, educated and loved on. All this because of and in Christ's love. Mike and Lori's dreams for these precious people never end! Show Mercy exemplifies their mission statement to Live On Purpose.

Show Mercy goes above and beyond in all areas of ministry! What was once a beautiful outreach to orphans has become a community with a medical clinic and well water for the surrounding population and the promise of a school being birthed. The land boasts a farm, animals and an incredible staff made up of locals. They reach out to villages around them taking care of senior citizens and children alike. My husband and I have been partners in ministry with SMI since 2008 and have been to Uganda and Field of Dreams to work side by side with Mike and Lori. They are an amazing leadership team and we are excited to see what comes next!

We have been partners with SMI for 5 years now. I love getting letters from the kids we sponsor and watching them grow and learn. I also really appreciate how they work to support the kids in their homes with families. But it's not just kids! They are always looking for ways to improve the whole community! Their hears are fully for the people to whom they minister, and that shows in everything they do!
