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 a first line of defense against the spread of illness. PHK's are also a 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 place in each completed bag. All contents need to be placed in a gallon ziploc bag. Place 10-12 PHK's in a sturdy box. Donation of $2 per kit helps Mercy Partners in expediting the PHK's overseas.

 

Provide Hunger Meal

A Hunger Meal provides your social group, club, or church the opportunity to experience the situation of South Sudan's food instability and feed those starving direct. Challenge your group to fast then eat a meal that you prepared. The meal can be a simple bowl of rice or corn that will be eaten while MERCY PARTNERS presents "Facts and Myths of World hunger."

 

Those that attended are encouraged to contribute what they would normally spend on a restaurant meal to aid MERCY PARTNERS' food program. In this way, you help Mercy Partners in fueling and expediting famine relief.

 

Adopt The Unadoptable

Children in the conflict zones of North and East Africa have seen horrific atrocities that we refer to as “unspeakable."  Where most adoptable children are closely associated with western civilization, it is the children that remain within conflict regions that remain broke in spirit, without hope, and without family. The Unadoptable which attend our School has restored hope, food, education and they begin to heal physically and spiritually with the guided psychological care of compassionate teachers.

 

Giving life as a gift is a precious legacy and testimony to Gods power at work within our partners. 

 

Our Collaborators

Give Old/New Bibles and Christian Literature

We “redeem” Bibles by collecting unused Bibles and placing them with individuals. This is good management. We also, however, purchase brand new Bibles to go directly to study groups so we can all read from the same translation where English is just taking hold. Christian literature and Bible studies provide a growing church fuel for the spirit.

 

This also provides opportunities to provide emergency relief and sustainable aid for souls to go from zero survival to striving and then thriving as they produce more disciples.

John 4:13 - “The water He gives will be an artesian spring within, gushing fountains of endless life." So even providing physical water takes on a spiritual dimension. Deep water boreholes for hydration and sanitation provide life. Water is LIFE!   

Give a Love/Legacy Well

The hearts of the displaced are fertile ground in which to plant the seed of the Gospel. Our task remains to build a community of Christians that welcome the world to our Heavenly Father. The community is in need of spiritual shelter as well as water. All our work is about Jesus.

   Strategically placed, we empower the community in partnership. Where we have the resources, we invite their participation in providing gravel and food for the well team. The well team teaches them to care for their own wells by having a maintenance plan in place so that they have full ownership when we leave. This is what empowerment looks like!

 

Our evangelistic outreach during the weeks leading up to the construction of the well, results in many desiring the new life that Jesus brings and enter into His New Covenant.

 

 
 

Micro Loans & Transportation

Accountability is not about trust as much as it is extending dignity. If we love people we want to extend dignity. Our Micro Loan structures are built around our relationships that grow and blossom within the Church of Christ and provide a hand up. 


The borrowers' priorities for the use of their profits are: better nutrition, healthcare and paying school fees for their children. MERCY PARTNERS provides outreach in all of these areas by empowering men and women with options to provide better care for their families in our experience A loan amount as little as $50 can make a huge impact assisting someone in sustaining themselves.

      Motorbike Mobilizes the Gospel
Brother Emmanuel “Emmy” remembered a conversation he had with Tom back in 2014 when they traveled from village to village during 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!

 

Pictured: prayers spoken for safety & protection over newly purchased motorbike and another disciple baptized.
 

 

Our core work is helping church leaders to follow the example of scripture, mainly: 2 Timothy 2:15 - "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth."

Fund the cost of a workshop for a church leader

MERCY PARTNERS host leadership conferences in North and East Africa as well as workshops for church leaders and missionaries in North America. Disciples discuss Personal Spiritual Life and the New Testament Church. Some areas we train in are located in villages that have served as incubators for radical religions that oppose Christ.


Training in Biblical authority and rightly dividing the scriptures is greatly needed. MERCY PARTNERS relies on partnering with native evangelists and near culture missionaries to replicate what we refer to as “Bridge Missions” (as exemplified in Acts 11). Teaching the next generation and helping them to sharpen their Bible knowledge is on the front line of Kingdom work.

 

Translate PSL

Receive Mango Lessons

Dynamics of the undeveloped world have outpaced our traditional strategy of language translation. South Sudan is not an exception when 26 developing nations in Africa have also adopted English as their language. While majority generations are plowing into the future, there remains a remnant attached as a bridge to the rich culture and history of their people group. The elderly generation not only needs the vital information we have about their loving heavenly Father, but they also enrich the lives of the youth. Sensitivity towards the generation gap leads us to empower natives in reaching their elderly in spoken language. Translation comes best from the native people of their tribe. Many of our teachings are adapted by young natives to address generational language gaps and our list of translated lessons are growing. Communication tools and cost, printing and publication materials make the work possible. 

 

Become an anchor partner for Biblical education.

Because the internet is more accessible than ever before, MERCY PARTNERS has duplicated our discipleship ability through the internet.  We send out fifty-two weeks of discipleship lessons to South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, Netherlands, the Dutch West Indies and the United States at weekly intervals. MERCY PARTNERS Mango Discipleship has targeted specific discipleship needs while weaving awareness of the church's prayer request to a global family like none other.
Our next level of training disciples, aid workers, missionaries and church leaders is through a physical campus and online presence. “MERCY PARTNERS BRIDGE CAMPUS FOR GLOBAL IMPACT” is designed with modules, curriculum and practical skills training to harvest a new crop of kingdom workers that are ready to engage the future world. This work is ready to come online within 90 days of a partner underwriting this need. Please contact us to join in on the work. needs for

 

Mercy Bear &

School benches

Because individual needs can be address in small ways, Director Mickey Witcher created Project MERCY BEAR where the change of children (and those young at heart) can make a change in another child’s life. 100% of the change collected from the MERCY BEAR banks goes directly to assist 700 displaced children in South Sudan.

School Benches can be purchased at the cost of $120 ($30 per child since a bench seats four) The benches are hand made by local craftsmen which intern help the craftsman to sustain their own family.

 

Underwrite our curriculum for print

Tom Kilian writes: “I noticed that western culturalization began to influence the orphans. Teachings on women empowerment had been led by Western women who felt as though they themselves had been victims. This can further embed a mindset of being a victim and cause an out-of-balance wobble in compassionate care. The boys on the compound harbored resentment and I did my best to reconcile the gender gap.I designed character lessons to address gender reconciliation. Later this concept would resurface as a core program of our mission work.” Sandie Kilian’s exposure to the girlhood town of celebrated Christian survivor of the holocaust, Corrie Ten Boom has further fueled lessons on reconciliation that Sandie has also compiled to address what Tom & Sandie refer to as gender reconciliation.  By teaching Gods intention for gender to both male and female there is healing.  By contributing to this sphere of work, you enable us to produce curriculum for print and enable us to teach.  

 

Build an “art kit”

Our 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 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 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 a Art Kit. Please contact us for more details.

Statment of Faith

 

• The Bible is the all sufficient guide to becoming a friend of God and maintaining that friendship, both individually and corporately.


• The Death, Burial and Resurrection of God's only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, created the passage that all mankind can unite with their creator.

 

• It is only when we die to self and submit to being buried with Christ,

( Rom 6:4) that we receive salvation and God's indwelling Holy Spirit.


• This burial is physical and spiritual at the same time, the physical immersion of the body led by the submitting of the human will. When we are immersed, we are saved from sin and enter a covenant, an agreement, as we continue to submit to God's Holy Spirit which guides us in all truth. Outside of this death, there is no entry or identity in Christ Jesus.
