1 more day of 2016… going into 2017 with purpose!

1 day left…

100% of your gifts are TAX DEDUCTABLE!

I can never say it enough. Your investment is making a difference! I can say this with confidence because I have seen the impact first hand. My name is Bethany and I have worked with Show Mercy International (SMI) since 2013. I began my journey as an intern with SMI during the summer of 2013. That summer forever changed my life. Not only was I able to experience the incredible work SMI is doing here in Uganda, but I also discovered more of who God had created me to be.  I discovered a passion to help others discover their purpose as well.

Over the past three years I’ve had the opportunity to work with SMI in the states, and in Uganda. At SMI, we believe in seeing transformation. Honestly, that is exactly what I’ve experienced. I have experienced that transformation in my life, but I’ve also seen it countless times in the lives of others.

What does that transformation look like?
It looks like Hilda!

I’ve seen Hilda transform from a timid, emotionless 3-year-old girl to a 6-year-old who is full of life and joy! Her life has been transformed through our sponsorship program and through the power of love.  The first day I met her she wouldn’t let anyone touch her or hold her. She was abandoned by her parents and had undoubtedly not been shown much love and affection in her first years. Last week when I saw her, she came running into my arms and refused to leave my side for the rest of the day.  She has a smile that can light up a room. She is a different girl than the Hilda I met three years ago. This is what I call transformation.

I could go on for days with the stories of those who’s lives I’ve seen affected through the work SMI is doing in Uganda. I could tell you about the countless short and long-term mission team members who are forever changed after leaving this place. I could tell how I’ve watched our staff members grow and develop into emerging leaders. I could go on. However, what I really want to tell you is….

What you are doing is making a difference. I’ve been behind the scenes in all areas of work here at Show Mercy and I can see the impact that you are making. Your investment is bringing an incredible return. When you invest into SMI you are saying YES to transformation in the lives of thousands of men, women, and children in Uganda and across the globe. Your investment matters. You can help. You can make a difference.

Meet the next president of Uganda

4 days left…

100% of your gifts are TAX DEDUCTABLE!

Meet one of the next presidents of Uganda! (It’s possible you know.) His name is Simon. He’s had a rough go at life that is until YOU, our Show Mercy partners, made it possible for our team to step in and take action.

Simon is 7 years old. He’s NEVER had the opportunity to attend school. He’s been moved from house to house for 7 years. He DOESN’T KNOW what it’s like to have a committed adult in his life.  The word LOVE is an unknown concept for him.

Those statements are all true, but TOGETHER we are changing all of that!

Simon just joined us at our Holiday Home. Noticed, I said HOME. Why? Because it’s a safe haven for little ones like Simon to begin to HEAL in their hearts, experience LOVE and be a part of a FAMILY.

Simon had a blast celebrating Christmas with the rest of the Holiday Home family. He received this wipe off book (pictured above) and immediately went to work tracing letters. He is more than elated to be able to go to school for the FIRST TIME starting in February. I am confident he is going to excel and make up for lost time.

Bethany, who is living and working full time in Uganda with SMI sent me this note: “When I walked over to the holiday house today, he was on the back step working on his book! His buddy Juma was beside him working on his coloring/activity book that SMI got him as well. So sweet.”

Join us as we move forward into 2017 and continue to impact lives. Little children like Simon are exactly why your donations are so important. 

Thank you for being the POWER behind this work.

We Are Show Mercy,

They began lining up two hours early and it’s because of you.

Father Christmas made an appearance at the party. The children were all SO excited!

Merry Christmas!

From everyone here at Show Mercy International, we want to say THANK YOU for making this such a great Christmas. We would like to share some special moments from our Holiday Parties.

(not pictured are the parties for prison outreach, SMI staff party, and our volunteer village medical team party)

If you were planning on investing in our special parties this year and didn’t get a chance, we could still use your help!

SMI Sponsorship Party

Our party for the children in the SMI Sponsorship Program began at 10 AM at our Field of Dreams base, however, the children were already lining up at 8 AM! They were so excited.
Many of the children put together a special performance including dancing and a short play. The other children loved watching it!
Together, we had a Christmas feast! The women who volunteer at our Say No to Hunger programs put together a wonderful meal for the day. They helped to feed well over 300 children and adults!
Together, we talked about the true meaning of Christmas. There were also games (including an awesome bouncy castle), cake, and small gifts for each and every child. In this photo, Edward had fun sticking confetti all over his face!

H.E.R.O. Elderly Party

We celebrated Christmas with all of the eldery Men and Women in our H.E.R.O. Program (Helping Elderly, Relieving Oppression). Many of the women couldn’t help but get up and dance with our staff! It was too much fun.
Together, we talked about how thankful we are for each and every H.E.R.O. They each brought a family member to join in the celebration as well.
After all of the dancing and chatting, our H.E.R.O.’s sat down for a Christmas feast!
….and the parties aren’t over yet!
(more updates to come)

This Christmas season has been so wonderful and it was all made possible by you! Thank you for investing into Show Mercy and our programs.

You are truly changing lives.

If you haven’t had a chance to invest in the Christmas celebrations in Uganda, we could still use your help
(all gifts are tax deductible).

A special message from the founders.

A Special Message from the founders of Show Mercy International.

Lori and I wanted to personally thank you for your past and current support of Show Mercy International. It is truly humbling for us to see so many people like yourself investing in the future of the struggling people of Uganda. Together, we have seen thousands of people impacted and shown the love of Jesus in many practical ways. You might wonder if your donations truly make a difference. We can assure you that they do! Thank you for playing such a crucial role at Show Mercy.

Please take a moment to review the flyer below. You can see a brief summary of some of our accomplishments over the past year. It is only because of people like you that we are able to make such a tremendous impact in the lives of so many.

We are asking you to consider making a generous year-end gift to Show Mercy International. You are the power behind this work. Your year-end gift will help us to keep moving forward with our effective programs. Not only will your gift help us to help and add more vulnerable children to our programs, but we have some exciting plans for our medical clinic as well. GIVE NOW

SMI is planning to open a birthing center, which will help save the lives of countless mothers and babies. We will work hand in hand with the mothers and local midwives in the community. The mortality rate of mothers giving birth and newborns is staggering. Together, we can change these statistics.  Imagine welcoming little ones as they make their entrance into this world and inhale their first breath of fresh clean air; touching their delicate soft hands and being one of the first people to pray and speak life over them. Together, we can help transform the community even more.

You make amazing things like birthing centers and saving children possible.
Together, we can accomplish so much. Thank you in advance for answering the cry of injustice and living on purpose while supporting Show Mercy International in Uganda. We pray you have a very Merry Christmas!

With Gratitude,

Mike Salley

Executive Director/Co-Founder

Yes, I would like to give a gift today.
