LAND GIVEN BY GOD

The building is going up quickly
 


Half of this building will be used to store grain and feed for the animals, and two rooms for the caretakers.


Mercy Uganda is so very thankful for the land that God provided this ministry through the generosity of donors
who have faithfully and lovingly supported the work of this ministry.
We had a wonderful team of Ugandans, and two very special American men, Mark and Doug, who worked alongside
them to build this very first building on the Mercy Land.
Now that we have the caretakers facility, we have crops starting to grow, and look forward to beginning the work on the
main facility.  This will provide housing for some of the vulnerable children, and a residence for the Knetzers when they
make their move to Uganda.  We hope to get the well drilled soon.  We have already been blessed with the funds
for that well by one of our dear donors...thank you!
Part of this project has also included the shipping container. It will be filled with much needed tools and equipment to help us complete the construction more efficiently, and provide tools and equipment for the agriculture and livestock program on the land.  We hope to have the container in Uganda in the next 2 to 3 months. 
If you would like more information about how to get involved in this building project, or the agriculture and livestock program, we would love to hear from you, and get you involved!!  Please continue to pray for us as we move forward with this HUGE and much needed effort.
