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.

8 WAYS EXERCISE MAKES YOU HAPPY: GET FIT & FEEL EVEN BETTER

Does your job have you stressed out? Has your daily routine got you feeling down in the dumps? Tired of being tired throughout your day? Exercise! It’s amazing what exercise can do, not just for your body, but for your whole life. It’s not just about getting into a better mood. It’s about making life more joyful and finding happiness!

As we learned from Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins can interact with the receptors in your brain and make you happy.

Visit https://hubs.ly/Q01jKzbQ0 & Check out the list we compiled to discover how exercise benefits you beyond just physically and start working towards being happier today.

DON'T WORRY, (GET TO THE GYM &) BE HAPPY!
