Organization Spotlight: Mercy House

Jun 25, 2021

FITNESS PROJECT® believes in the concept of giving back and empowering transformation, both for yourself and your community.

FITNESS PROJECT is building a culture of health, engagement, and connection to help people transform their lives inside and out of the gym. There’s power in purpose; acting with an intentional focus on the desired outcome. Combining community causes with exercise offers people greater purpose than personal health alone; it offers fitness for the whole self—mind, body, and soul. The result? Fulfillment in ourselves, strength in our communities.

One of the latest organizations that FITNESS PROJECT is putting a spotlight on is Mercy House. Mercy House is such a brilliant concept and gift to this planet. A woman living in poverty somewhere on this planet is using her own hands and materials from her country to create “something” that will help feed herself and her family. The “something” is then purchased by Mercy House. Mercy House sells the “something” to you and I so that we can be part of making a positive impact on the life of someone in need.
Each year Mercy House Global raises funds to rescue 6-8 new pregnant girls and alter their course for a lifetime. Mercy House global began in 2010 with the vision of providing a safe haven for teen moms in Kenya who have become pregnant through desperate situations. This is still 100% our mission, and we have rescued over 60 mommas and babies in the last 11 years!

Mercy House Vision⁠

Mercy House exists to engage, empower, and disciple women around the globe in Jesus’ name. Engage those with resources to say yes to the plight of women in poverty. Empower women and teenage mothers around the world through partnerships and sustainable fair trade product development and disciple women to be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.

Mercy House Model

The primary ministry of Mercy House Global is funding Rehema Rescue Center, which rescues pregnant teen girls, outside Nairobi, Kenya. We do this through Fair-Trade product sales (retail stores, live sales and Fair Trade Friday subscription clubs) and generous donations from our community!

Mercy House Values

We value the gospel: to make God’s glory known by living out the redemptive story of Christ. We value the dignity of all life, from unborn babies to aging widows-we believe every life matters and is precious to God. We value keeping families together, preventing orphans and supporting the vital role mothers serve in the lives of their children.⁠ We value education and equal rights for oppressed girls. We value integrity and transparency in our role as stewards of the financial and physical resources. We value economic empowerment of women. We value prayer, servanthood, hard work, and sustainability.

Member Spotlight: This Month, FITNESS PROJECT: The Woodlands' Member, Paul Herman, celebrated 10 years of running a mile every day! 

After being sedentary due to relocation and a gentle nudge from his partner, Amy, Paul literally just started putting one foot in front of the other and hasn’t stopped! 

In addition to getting fit and focusing on his own health and fitness, he now works with CASA and directs their Halloween run along with numerous other foundations. 

Paul is the definition of service in the community and works with numerous non-profits including Be The Match, an organization that matches donors to people in need of bone marrow transplants. 

We love seeing our members excel in the gym and our community!
