She is Priceless: Join the Movement and #PutOnYourPearls

Join Mercy House Global on May 16, 2017, to support women around the world by using social media to bring awareness and funds to organizations striving to make a difference in the lives of oppressed women.

Use the hashtag #PutOnYourPearls when sharing on your social media pages.  A pearl is a healed wound.  An oyster protects itself from irritation and suffering and the result is a priceless pearl.  The women Mercy House Global and partnering organizations support have endured unthinkable suffering in their lives and often feel forgotten.  We are joining together to remind the world that every woman matters.

Rich Stearns, President, World Vision U.S. – What Does God Expect of Us?

Is our faith just about going to church, studying the Bible, and avoiding the most serious sins—or does God expect more? Have we embraced the whole gospel or a gospel with a hole in it? In this Plenary Session at the 2017 M3 Conference, World Vision U.S. president Rich Stearns tells his story of coming face-to-face with that question nearly 20 years ago in a mud hut in Rakai, Uganda. His journey took him from the corner office at one of America’s most prestigious corporations to a life devoted to walking with the poorest of the poor in our world. His story demonstrates how the gospel—the whole gospel—was always meant to be a world-changing social revolution, a revolution that begins with us.
