  1. Dear Lord,
    I lift up Kristen and her family as they head to Kenya. Surround them with a hedge of protection in their travels and let your love so shine through them to our sisters in Christ at Mercy House. Let them be salt and light in a dark place and let them be a channel, through which, the love of the entire (in)courage community flows. May their lives be forever changed. Thank you, Lord, for letting me be a small part of their journey.
    In Jesus’ name,

  2. Lord we give you Kristen and her family to hold close and in a special way in their travels. Open doors, keep them safe, make this an enjoyable trip for them as they do Your work in our place. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of Your great plan.

  3. Dear God, please watch over this family and keep them safe during their travels and during their stay in Kenya. They are bright shining examples of your love on Earth.

  4. Abba, we pray that you will be with Welch family as they travel. Guide and protect them Abba, and may this time away from Mercy House be restful. May this time draw them closer to you.

  5. Jesus,
    You are Protector and we ask for a covering of Your protection over Kristen and her family as they travel and stay in Kenya. You are Provider and we ask that you would continue to work in the hearts of Your people to provide financially for Mercy House. You are good and we pray for the blessing of Your goodness in the lives of Kristen and her family as they work for you in Kenya. Amen

  6. Lord Jesus, we just ask for your MERCY over this precious family as they boldly go forth to serve you. We ask for protection, safety and health as they travel. May your glory shine upon them and the wonderful ladies they are able to be with during their stay. Thank you for this indescribable gift. And it’s in your name, Jesus, our Lord and our Savior that we pray all of these things. Amen!

  7. Prayers have been lifted up!!! Would it be profitable if more companies joined your organization of giving. I’m not sure exactly how this works out, but i do know of a few people who have small businesses that do donate to charity, and I could pass this information along if that something that would help you?

  8. Kristen,

    I give thanks and praise to our Great God for you and the work that He has called and equipped you to do through Mercy House. This is a beautiful ministry that demonstrates God’s lavish grace, love and compassion. May He grant you traveling mercies. May the peace that passes all understanding guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus. Phil. 4: 7 May God grant you peace knowing that the Creator of the universe is with you and will help you. He is strengthening and equipping you for every good work that He has planned for you. May He make your hearts glad and your lips ready to give testimony to the hope that you have within. May you delight in the time spent with these precious women and their babies. May it be a sweet time of fellowship and mutual encouragement. May your hearts be filled with praise to our King as you rejoice in what He has done. I look forward to rejoicing with you and watching how He shows Himself through this trip and through future projects.

    A sister through the blood of Jesus,
