{Baby Gift Ministry}: The Mercy House

We are in the midst of a lot of exciting changes around here these days, if you haven't noticed.

One of those exciting changes happens to be our brand new partnership with The Mercy House.

The Mercy House is a maternity home that provides alternative options for pregnant girls living in the streets of  Kenya.

And I am SO proud to announce that from now on, every mom living in The Mercy House will be receiving a set of our Victorious Virtues Prayer Cards, produced for us by Tower Promotions & Planning Solutions, LLC- allowing them to pray the biblical virtues scriptures over themselves and their child.

Many women do noble things but you surpass them all.  {Proverbs 31:29}

I have SUCH a passion for this ministry - a strong desire to encourage new moms. Motherhood is a tough journey and at the same time, a high calling. This print that I found on Pinterest describes it perfectly. I could not have said it better myself.

And this is my desire - to encourage all moms to point their children to the one true God and to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

And for those women who find themselves in a crisis pregnancy, I want to do everything I can to encourage them to first of all have their babies and then if need be, give them up for adoption....urging them to avoid abortion, allowing God to assume his rightful authority as the author of life and death - there are plenty of adopting families who desperately want to give these children a home if they cannot keep them, even special needs children.

Why do I care so much, you ask?!

His name is Little A. He is a sharp, vibrant, athletic, perfectly healthy 5 year old little boy who the doctors told us to consider terminating when we were 20 weeks pregnant with him because there "might" be something wrong with him.

We will never know if he was perfectly healthy all along or if God healed him - but either way, I will never get over this.

He is the reason why we here at Worthy of the Prize support The Mercy House through this Baby Gift Ministry, why we help adopting families raise $ for their adoptions through our Chosen Child Adoption Ministry, why we sponsor a child through Compassion International and why we continue to promote other ministries who have the same goals as we do.

We want to do everything we can to honor God and his miracle of life, as well as reduce the HUGE number of orphans in the world - every child deserves the love of a parent here on this earth.

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. {John 14:18}

I will be back next week to fill you in on the changes we have made in our Chosen Child Adoption Ministry. For now, I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your contributions to this little ministry of ours - whether it be financial, through prayer, by purchasing our products, volunteering your time and talents or simply by helping us to promote what's going on around here. We could not do it without YOU.

Please continue to purchase our Fit Bands, Fit Cards and Baby Gifts found right here in our online shop, so that we can continue to fund these ministries - and please help us spread the word!

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever! Amen. {1 Timothy 1:17}
