Welcome, welcome!

Last week, we said goodbye to Annette, Mercy House's first-ever housemother. We mentioned that it was going to take two people to fill her shoes, and, this week, we're happy to introduce you to the newest members of our Mercy House Staff. Meet Jessica, Pauline, and Winfred:

One of our goals for the coming year is to recruit more girls to The Mercy House. 16 girls and babies need a lot of care and support, and, as we add more girls, that need will only increase. The administrative duties will also grow. In order to prepare for these changes, we have hired two new housemothers, as well as an administrative assitant to help Maureen with accounting and paperwork.

Jessica, 46, is an experienced mother, and we believe she will be a huge blessing as we recruit more girls in the Spring.

Winfred, 50, is also a mother, as well as a widow. We are excited to welcome her into the Mercy House family, and we know she will be a great addition to our staff.

Finally, Pauline is a recent graduate of Daystar University in Nairobi. You wouldn't believe the amount of administration and paperwork it takes to run a maternity home in Kenya, and Maureen is grateful to have Pauline as an assistant.

Please help us welcome Pauline, Winfred, and Jessica by leaving them a note in the comments section. We would also appreciate your continued prayers for smoothe transitions and wisdom as we move forward. Thank you for your support!
