Review for Show Mercy International, Port Gibson, MS, USA
My husband and I spent 2 months in Uganda with Show Mercy, and will for the rest of our lives think back to our time there. We are so excited to return again! If I were to describe Show Mercy in one word it would be INTENTIONAL. From the moment we were picked up at the airport, to our gift baskets in our rooms, the warm welcome, and how they love every person they meet in the villages, we were blown away! No ministry is done by simply 'going through the motions'. Each staff member acts with great intention and love. We spent a lot of time with the outreach team, and they pushed us to get past fear we had built up. They led us in ministry and helped us walk in greater freedom ourselves! I was amazed at how intentional Show Mercy is with every sponsor child and family. No sponsorship looks like another. The staff are truly loving these families and children, and Jesus is transforming lives! When Show Mercy started, they built relationships with the pastors and elders of the villages, and today still honors them. You can feel the mutual respect, love, and appreciation between the community and Show Mercy. It is beautiful to witness!
The beautiful base has a deep peace that dwells there, and we started every day well rested and excited to say YES to what Jesus had for that day. Anyone considering going to Show Mercy in Uganda should GO!
