Review for Show Mercy International, Port Gibson, MS, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Show Mercy International is a phenomenal organization, my team and I had a wonderful experience with t hem. From their mission, to the incredible staff, and the amazing hospitality, I believe Show Mercy is making an impact in their community. The Gospel is consistently being displayed and preached. I've worked with other nonprofits and missionaries on mission trips, and I believe that Show Mercy's love and consistency is what makes them great. As volunteers coming here to help we dove right in with the beautiful work Show Mercy is doing in the community, they were not finding or creating work for us to do. I wanted to come here to Uganda to show the love of Jesus, and know that my work, even if just in the smallest way, would make a difference, and because of the way Show Mercy does their work I know that I did. The people we reached out to will continued to be loved and supported by Show Mercy long after I am gone (almost all were being loved and supported before we got here), and that gives me joy and peace. They have a wonderful structure of partnering with the locals here to teach them sustainable skills, of farming and education. They are not just providing for the people, they are partnering with them to teach them responsibility and ownership. It is a beautiful thing. The way they are able to provide healthcare, medicine, and care is wonderful. Show Mercy also sponsors many children to continue in education, but not just that, they go and visit these kids and become part of their lives. They are role models for these children, and are consistently loving them, visiting them, teaching them, equipping them, sharing Jesus with them, and discipling them. They reach out to the woman in the community and teach various skills like sowing. They visit the elderly consistently and build relationships with them, as well as help them with various projects. At the end of the day they are building meaningful, Jesus-centered relationships with the community, and it is beautiful to see in person. May God continue to bless them. I am so encouraged by my time volunteering with Show Mercy.
