God is moving all the time. He is here right now, right now with you and me. He is like the wind, we don’t always see His hand or feel His Presence, but He is a constant, like the air we breathe.

God is quietly working in our lives and through our hands. We plan our path, but He directs our steps.

And then some days and seasons, His Spirit is like a hurricane-force wind and there is no doubt He is moving. It takes our breath away, when the supernatural meets the natural.

A team of nearly 100 people has been working quietly behind the scenes for months on the (in)Mercy project, from bloggers to designers. Five phases perfectly planned to radically impact Mercy House, a grassroots organization on the ground in Kenya, rescuing our sisters across the globe.

According to the calendar, Phase 3 was to launch at the Allume Conference last week. But it didn’t.

Because it was already funded without one announcement, post or tweet to do so.

We scrambled and changed our plans. Phase 4 was to launch at Allume last week. But it didn’t.

Because it was already funded without one announcement, post or tweet to do so.

We scrambled and changed our plans. Again.

And so we felt the mighty wind of God leading us into Phase 5, our final (in)Mercy stage. The women of Allume met the challenge and we experienced the force of His glory when we challenged them to give $1,500 to kick off the phase and ended up with more than $4,000 in 10 minutes. In six weeks, more than $20,000 has been raised.

    What amazing stuff! Accomplishment is what God is providing for the mothers and children of mercy house, it is so amazing to hear of the power of God and to see him working through others. He IS TRULY Powerful, Amazing, Wonderful I’m searching for the right word to describe but it truly is better than any word we have in our language to describe his awesomeness!!!

    I am so stinkin’ excited to be a part of a large movement of God honoring people. Mercy House has been on my heart since Kristen introduced us to this vision over 3 years ago. I stand amazed at the movement of hearts and pocketbooks that has led to the complete funding of 4 of the 5 projects and I firmly believe God will see to it that the 2nd home for Mercy House gets fully funded. God is so good!
