.Love Mercy Project Wrap-up.

As I tread into the month of March, fresh off the heels of February and the #LoveMercyProject, the only sentiment I can continually feel comes from Romans 8. “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Six months ago, when we founded Mercy Branch Inc., […]

.Purse Strings and Heartstrings.

Jesus had this incredible way of cutting straight to the point. He would say just a few words, maybe a little story, and cut straight through our excuses, and philosophies, our distractions, and get right to the point He was striving to make.

News is surfacing that two Somali bombers inadvertently took their life in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia while building a bomb presumably to use at the World Cup qualifier on Sunday. With that, the question of safety will certainly be raised once again. Is it safe for you to go there? The answer is simple. Yes, because […]

.The Scandal of the Kingdom.

Today Tiffany wrote about Doing It Scared. It is something that really resonates with how I am feeling. It has been such an encouragement to see God move people to come around and support our journey. We did a little promotional video to try and explain what we are doing or maybe why we are […]

.Open Letter to Anonymous.

Thank you for believing in us. It is crazy at times to sit back and realize how many people really do believe in us. We are working really hard to do everything ethically, transparently, and legally. We are trying to maximize our experience, grow from our mistakes, and make the most of our successes. And […]
