Your partnership allows us to address physical needs so Jesus Christ is glorified. It was Jesus who said, "The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you--they are full of the Spirit and life." - John 6:63  

 

Your direct partnership reaches the most vulnerable and enables God's grace to be shown in life-giving ways.

Charitable donations allow us to provide aid in conflict zones and create service programs that foster immediate care, sustainable aid, and discipleship training of native evangelists to care for their local people. Our mission is to bridge cultures effectively with lasting change by extending equal partnerships to make God's grace evident.

Project Jacob
Safe Water-Well Initiative

Thank you for safe water 2021 MP copy lower.jpeg

This little girl fetches water from a newly bored well in West Nile, Uganda, when at one time she and her mother had to travel by foot many miles for safe water. Statistically, 8 in 10 wells that Non-Governmental Organizations bore fall into disuse within the first 18 months. MERCY PARTNERS has reversed the statistic through our Project Jacob which utilizes native drill teams who hold evangelistic outreach along with community training to care for the well long after the crew leaves the region. Site surveys incorporate evangelistic outreach and wholistic care.

At every level, Mercy Partner's Project Jacob includes a program informing the community how to care for their well by having a maintenance plan, so they have full ownership of the well when we leave. The project will also implement our “W.A.S.H." (Water Access Sanitation Hygiene) program, instructing the community on sanitation and personal hygiene.

 

When we read the words of Jesus in John 4:14, “whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; indeed, the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life,” we see that Jesus ordained by example a wholistic approach to ministry. Because of this, MERCY PARTNERS’ makes certain that projects reflect the sustainability which Jesus offers spiritually. The water wells which we bore are cemented in and are inscribed with scripture proclaiming the Good News of Jesus.

Give a Goat
Sustainable aid

world health day 2021 MP copy 88.jpg

MERCY PARTNERS has had a long history of goats being weaved into our mission work. On one occasion, coming from South Sudan into Uganda, founder Tom Kilian found a goat named Jack (after the fruit by the same name) whose owners Tom engaged. After discussing their love of goats, the family welcomed conversation concerning Christ Jesus. The family of Jack later became disciples and launched a church in their village. 

 

Goats have been the center of celebrations and sustenance in the lives of our disciples in Uganda and South Sudan.

 

Each goat purchase receives a report within about 90 days, along with a name that the new shepherd will give her.

Pictured Above: Prayers are spoken for safety & protection over a newly purchased motorbike and another disciple baptized.


Brother Emmanuel “Emmy” remembered a conversation he had with Tom back in 2014 when they traveled from village to village during a water well inspection.  Tom promised that when Emmy was ready, he would see what he could do about supplying a motorbike to ease travel. This past spring Emmy wrote a proposal after establishing a new church family. It was time. Since Emmy received the bike, 15 have been baptized and two churches have grown!

Providing Personal Hygiene Kits for health during crisis in South Sudan, Uganda, Ethiopia, Keyna, Mercy Partners

Provide Personal Hygiene Kits

PHK's are one of the top needs for people struggling to obtain reliable sources of food, water, and shelter and the first line of defense against the spread of illness. PHK's are also the first step toward good health and a way to provide dignity in a small bag for those who have suffered during crises.

 

A Mercy Partners' "region-specific PHK pamphlet" will be placed in each completed bag. All contents need to be placed in a gallon zip-lock bag. Place 10-12 PHK's in a sturdy box. A donation of $2 per kit helps Mercy Partners in expediting the PHK's overseas.

Build an “art kit”

Art therapy uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It helps children resolve issues for healthy development. A child that has experienced war conflict can manage their behaviors and feelings better, have reduced stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness.

Art therapy can achieve different things for different people and we find it helps children to heal spiritually.  We begin by simply coloring, and then having conversations when the children are able to converse. When trust is built, we ask the child to draw pictures that relate to Bible stories. Then the children begin to have the courage to open up and share the horrific trauma that they underwent and what struggles they face. The crayon becomes a tool for communication like no other, Black and Reds are some of the colors of choice that the children migrate to naturally, (even though at age 7-8 they may not have ever held a crayon) After a confrontation with their experiences and reconciliation for what they have encountered at such a young age, healing becomes evident in the pictures that they dray as the spectrum of colors enlarge.  It is a good month when all the colors are used up!

In the broad sense of the term, it can be used to massage one’s inner-self in a way that may provide the individual with a deeper understanding of him or herself. Build an “art kit” that will be bundled with our healing packet. You can help by providing an Art Kit. Please contact us for more details.
