We are entering a new phase at Mercy's Haven as everyone here is participating in some way with new school schedules- Your prayers are much appreciated during this new season of transition and growth. A special shout out to Angela Dennis, who has been instrumental in navigating through the ins and outs of this multi-faceted process for each of the residents!
Thank you to the Soroptimist International of Humboldt Bay who generously donated funds for the purchase of landscaping and yard equipment, as well as a beautiful cedar picnic table and umbrella, lawn chairs and furniture, barbecue, and outdoor recreational games!
Thanks to the Fog Dogs, Humboldt Sponsors, and Blue Lake Casino & Hotel, this beautiful play structure is now in the backyard at Mercy's Haven. The kids get to enjoy countless hours of fun and exercise while the moms get to take a break! And our own personal Mercy's Haven Backyard Park couldn't have been completed without the help of all of our amazing volunteers! Thank you to each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts!
When faith and works come together, miracles happen! What started out as a simple plan to rototill a small area of the backyard at Mercy's Haven became another amazing testimony of God making good on his promise in Ephesians 3:20 that He is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we could ever ask, dream, or imagine!
Thanks to Art Jones, Treven Avilar, Julia Cottel, Roberta Wealty, Jim Dennis, Royal Gold, Wes Green Landscaping, Miller Farms, the women and children at Mercy's Haven, and everyone else that God brought in for the organizing, donations, planting, watering, and harvest! Like 1 Corinthians 3:6 says, one man plants, another man waters, and God makes it grow!
As some of you may know, Mercy’s Haven recently had our first ever fundraiser dinner and silent auction and it was a HUGE success! From the conception of the idea of a fundraiser to the actual event only two short months later, we were blown away by the generosity and community support that we received.
The evening was filled with wonderful fellowship, delicious food, testimonies of transformed lives, and a lively competition between the attendees as they bid on the incredible items that were so generously donated to our auction.
We would like to thank each and every one of you who came out and supported the vision for Mercy’s Haven and we look forward to seeing you at our next event!
We would like to thank Hansen Family Trust for the funds they granted to Mercy's Haven. Their generosity coupled with the gracious donations from Poletski's Appliance Center provided all new appliances for Mercy's Haven. What a blessing for the women and children to have brand new gorgeous appliances throughout the house! Thank you again Poletski's and Hansen Family Trust!
Please come join us on Saturday, April 15th, 2017 from 5pm to 8pm at Mad River Grange for our very first fundraiser for Mercy's Haven! We will be enjoying an amazing dinner catered by Blackberry Bramble BBQ which will include tri-tip, chicken and vegetarian as well as live and silent auctions! Come support Mercy's Haven and bid on fabulous items like a 7 night stay in Kona, Hawaii, or a 4 night stay in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe, Nevada. The cost is fifty dollars per person and a portion of your ticket is tax deductible. To purchase tickets please call 707-834-2197 or 408-440-7073. We hope to see you there!
