Mercy House funds two maternity homes in Kenya for pregnant teenage girls. Church Project is an avid supporter of the work of Mercy House. This past year a water well was drilled on the property saving the homes around $2000 per month. Our goal is to use the the excess water produced by the well to help fund the maternity homes and make them self sustaining. The money raised through The Woodlands Marathon will be invested in a water business for the maternity homes selling water to neighboring residents and trucking water to customers.
Mercy House exists to engage, empower and disciple women around the globe in Jesus’ name. Engage those with resources to say yes to the plight of women in poverty. Empower women and teenage mothers around the world through partnerships and sustainable fair trade product development. Disciple women to be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.
