Also, Mercy was elected unopposed as the Treasurer of the Nairobi Anglican Church Masala Parish Development Forum in 2011, a position she humbly accepted and feels honored to hold. In her acceptance speech, she vowed to work hand in hand with the parishioners to ensure maximum growth and development not just financial and/or economical but also spiritual growth and development for the purpose of winning souls for the Kingdom of God.
Her ultimate goal is to see families living happily, in peace and serving Christ. The central focus of Mercy in Margaret Mercy Ministries is on women and young people as she understands the unique challenges facing these groups. She provides a powerful insight to women and young people in saying,“More often than not in our society, women have been put as less superior than men but in the real sense, men would not really be who they are without the women as the driving force as their mothers, wives and daughters.. Women are the "back-bone" of every home and must therefore be prayerful, have maximum wisdom and be firm for the success and prosperity of their households. The bible clearly says that with her own hands a wise woman builds a home and the foolish woman with her own hands destroys her home. Summarily, women are the homemakers.
Our young people (the youth) have been marginalized in our society and are rarely included in decision-making. The young people are usually told what they can and cannot do. It is imperative that we start telling the young people what they can do as they have a mind of their own as well. We must make them aware that they are unique and are accepted just as they are. They can live full lives of purpose and destiny without being made to feel guilty. They can find good friendships and relationships. They can be healed from the pain and disappointment they are in and those of their past. They can be free and completely healed from drugs and alcohol. They can have a hope for their future and as a Ministry we have the mandate and answer for them in the person of Jesus Christ.”
Mercy is well aware that women and the youth must be independent and therefore be empowered in every way possible to enable enhanced family relationships and financial stability. Because of this, she has initiated programmes that will assist in enabling the women and young people to be self-sufficient and motivated to build them spiritually, emotionally and financially so as to fulfil the destiny God intended for them.
More good news: Pastor Mercy is currently pursuing a degree in theology to well equip her in sharpening her skills for her ministry and ultimately sharpen God's children in the world. We are happy for her.
