The Mercy Project

John (MDiv, '08) and Lori Buechner have officially launched The Mercy Project Colorado. It is a ministry of encouragement working to help churches partner with after care facilities that care for children who have survived sex trafficking. The goal is to establish solid relationships between a church congregation and the staff of a safe home or center that offers important care to children who have escaped or survived trafficking.

October 2009 Update: Very First Gift
Through gifts coming in from the website, we were able to send $345 to a group of children living in India! Although this is a relatively small amount to us, it is a fortune to these kids! (It is over 14,000 rupees!)
Because of this generosity, these beautiful children will continue to receive education, care and the love of Christ. They will not have "stand the line" tonight in some filthy brothel and wait as buyers of commercial sex place bids on them.
We are so honored and humbled to be able to be a part of their lives.
THANK YOU for your support and for your prayers!
