YOU WANT HELP TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Even if you can't physically go, you can partner with what God's doing through Vessels of Mercy.

What we do

We are a Christ-based ministry that is dedicated to bringing God's mercy to the nations. We are a hands-on ministry that works through local churches in southeast Asia. The Philippines, Viet Nam, and Bangladesh are our current countries of focus. We believe in a two-fold approach for strengthening believers. This involves training local leaders for ministry, as well as meeting basic needs through sponsoring educational, medical, and livelihood projects. 

WE GO

The name "Vessels of Mercy" really means a lot to us. One definition of a vessel is:

 

"A large ship that goes back and forth bringing supplies from one place to another."

 

We see ourselves as being vessels that go back and forth from America to other nations of the earth bringing the desperately needed supplies and relief to everyone, especially to those who are of the household of faith. 

Where we are now:

Philippines: Food Relief

There is a phrase that keeps being repeated to us by Pastors in the Philippines. It is “no work – no eat members”.

WE SERVE

Another definition of a vessel is:

 

"A hollow container, especially one used to carry something."

 

We see ourselves as containers that carry mercy, comfort, peace, and all the fruits of the Spirit that accompany the presence of Jesus. Our prayer is that God will continue to increase our capacity to minister to others.

WE CONNECT

One definition for vessel is:

 

"A blood vessel that connects different parts of the body and carries life."

 

The worldwide church is described in 1 Corinthians 12 as the body of Christ. We are all different members and have different functions. We see ourselves as being connectors that bring life and strength from other members. Whether it is physical relief going overseas, or encouraging reports coming back to donors, connection is necessary for the health of the body!

Viet Nam

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

Micah 6:8
