DECEMBER 2021 UPDATE
Despite the inconvenience, economic and social damage caused by Covid 19, we are still here, and, from a Mercy House point of view, we can say it has been a good year, thank God. We are deeply grateful for all our benefactors and supporters, as also for the beautiful young people whom God sends our way and many other blessings, which you can read about in this update.
When we last updated our website, international focus was on Covid 19, and now on the fourth wave, Omicron. In addition, recently it is on the scary consequences of climate change, e.g. the president of one of the Pacific Islands attended the international climate change conference online, standing up to his knees in water! The seawater is rising at such an alarming rate, that it will not be long before those islands are completely submerged and lost forever, with disastrous consequences for the inhabitants.
“From whom much has been given, much will be expected.” But those world leaders represent each one of us. Everyone needs to take these issues seriously and to see what we can personally do to help, even it is just to stop plastic bags, as Rwanda has done. The attached photo shows a rainbow, which recently appeared above Mercy House. It is a sign of the covenant and a reminder that God is with us. “The forward road is the road for you.”
