It's a season of transition in Kenya at Rehema House.

Some girls are returning home with their children (or to a safe relative) after their two year stay. They are excited and nervous to return to school. Others are staying longer, but transitioning to a vocational school.

Some girls are coming home-back to Rehema during their school and holiday breaks.

The door is always open.

Our 2nd Annual Mercy House Gala was a special night to remember.

MERCY HOUSE FIRST FRIDAY GALA-FAVS-2

100 lit star lanterns hung from the rustic rafters, created by a fair trade artisan group of women in India.

A teacher gave an examination with a black dot on the page.

There is one question on the test: What do you see on the page?

The students wonder if it's a trick question. They turn the page over and the only thing they see is the black dot.

Sometimes you have to step back and pause and recognzie the beauty around you.

We have seen God do the impossible again and again. 

Healing.

Transformation.

Hope born of sorrow.

Beauty from ashes.

Your regular baby fix. You're welcome:

Water is life. 

We cannot live without it. And we cannot imagine not having it.

Until we don't.

Every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this summer, the Mercy House warehouse is busting at the seams with volunteers.

It's pretty amazing.

Moms and grandmas, single women and kids fill the room and they work.

It seems crazy that something so small can make a difference.

But that's the principle Mercy House thrives on--the tiny gift, the little sacrifice, the small army of faithful monthly donors, sponsors and Club members who make this work around the world possible.

Our fair trade work not only provides skills, jobs and future income for the graduates of Rehema House, it provides it around the globe.

Can something as small as a pair of earrings really make a difference?
