Mercy International Mission, USA
The vision for Mercy International Mission began after Sunday and Victoria visited their family home in Nigeria in 2005 and became aware of the need to improve the health care conditions and education of their people and to decrease the level of poverty in the local community.
“When we saw what people were going through, we started to pray, asking God to show us how we might be able to help improve the quality of life and address several of the challenges facing people in this rural community.”
“In 2007, we went back home and decided to have series of meetings with the community leaders, including the chiefs and the king. They both expressed in very clear terms some of the issues and challenges facing the community in the areas of heath care and education, including: lack of a functional clinic and medication, a recreational center for children and youth a and the need for a community library where children, as well as adults, can be exposed to reading. Upon our arrival back in the United States, we decided to establish Mercy International Mission, USA as a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization.”
Today, Mercy International Mission, USA is now a registered nonprofit entity in the State of Minnesota, United States.
