The Mercy House

Through a series of serendipitous “clicks” this morning, I found out about The Mercy House, a home for pregnant young mothers in Kenya. If you’ve got a spare 6 minutes in your day today, check out this video that tells the story of how parenting blogger Kristen Welch ended up changing the lives of young girls in the slums of Kenya.

It’s a moving story–you might  need a tissue–but it’s also hard to watch without feeling your heart break open with conviction.

Kristen begins with a voiceover:

I asked God, through tears, how He could allow such 
human suffering. I really felt like he asked me the 
same thing... how can you allow it Kristen? What 
are you doing?

Here’s the movie.

I encourage you to check out The Mercy House, pray for the girls living there, buy some beautiful hand-made goods, and, most importantly of all, spend some time today asking yourself that important question:

What are you doing?
