Success!

I have some great news.  We have exceeded our fundraising goal and the money keeps coming in!  We have raised enough money for more than 3,700 mama kits!  I have purchased 2,700 so far.  We can't buy more until we use up the ones we have because of storage issues. What a great problem to have!

In just three weeks, the Mercy for Mamas mission team will arrive in Uganda for two weeks of ministry.  We have six large outreaches planned, visits to at least five crisis pregnancy centers, and a visit to a women's prison. We are going to be busy, but it's going to be so great to once again get to love on these women, hear their stories, encourage them, provide birth and prenatal education, and point them towards the local partners who can help them year round.

Next week, mama kit distribution will happen at one of the refugee camps in Northern Uganda.  Pray for these women who have suffered much in the past few months.  I'm know the idea of facing childbirth and raising a new little one in a foreign country with no idea of what their future holds is very difficult.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mamas out there!  

I am so excited that we are going to be able to bless so many mamas in Uganda this summer because of your generous support.  I truly am blown away by God's provision.  I'm anxious to give you all a total and to let you know just how many women we are going to be able to help.  Look for an update later this week!

If your church promoted Mercy for Mamas this Mother's Day, I would love to hear from you. I'd love to know what you did, how it was received, and how much money was raised.  I've already heard from one church that raised enough money for 400+ mama kits! Please email me (info@mercyformamas.com, comment here, or send me a message on Facebook)
