When the Way Forward is Unclear…

Hey everyone, sorry it’s been several days since I’ve updated you all on Mercy Home. Much has transpired since my last post… Buckle your seat belts.

So, HUGE PRAISE that all of Mercy Home’s school fees have been covered for their last term! The last checks were delivered to the schools today. There is no doubt in my mind that God’s Hand moved mightily to provide for these children. Now, what to do with the remaining money that God provided for these kids?

The way forward is unclear…

The more I remain involved in the chaos that is Mercy Home, the more unclear it becomes as to who is trustworthy and who is not. Who is on the side of the children, and who is on the side of their own selfish gain. Lines become unclear. People you hoped were trustworthy turn out to be thieves. Caught in the middle of all this: How do I best serve the well-being of these children? How do I make sure hungry mouths are fed once I’m gone? Unfortunately, the game-plan to keep the kids supported for 3 months hinged around some key elements that flopped. But GOD is still in control…

I have come to find out there is a NEW Board of Directors that is operating under correspondence with, and guidance from, the founder of the organization. The founder who steered the place straight into the ground. The founder who hasn’t been around for 3 years… One word: FISHY. This board has done nothing, and is currently doing nothing to better the state of the children. And yet they have ALL legal authority over this place… It seems that if I were on a leadership board for an orphanage that is suffocating and imploding, starving kids, and unpaid school fees, I would be trying to do SOMETHING. These people have done nothing. Fishy. Their fishing for something. A check from an unsuspecting charity giver. What will happen with that check? It’ll never reach the children. It’ll go straight into their pockets. A new set of tires for their car. This stuff happens ALL the time. It’s SICK. Sometimes you just can’t trust people…

So, left between a rock and a hard place, I will pray. I will wait and pray. God knows what’s going on, and He cares deeply for these kids. He knows how to best use HIS resources the way HE wants to. So I will let HIM direct. Please continue in steadfast prayer for the well-being of the children and wisdom in how to use the resources God has provided. Please also pray that justice would be brought upon those who have acted unjustly toward these children, and that their plans would be thwarted.

Psalm 82:3-4 … Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless, maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy, deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
