Our ministry is fueled by a passion for people. In 2003, when we (Mike and Lori Salley – Co-Founders) first went to Uganda, we experienced the LOVE of Jesus in an incredible way. We knew then, we had to extend this same opportunity to others. That’s when Show Mercy was born.
Since then, thousands of people have rallied around this passion at SMI, and together we are making a life-changing difference – not only in Ugandan families but in people all around the world.
Over 25 different nations have been represented at our Uganda base of operations! Who knew God would draw people from around the world to meet and work together?
With one heartbeat, we reach out in love into the villages surrounding our almost 50 acre base.
We have provided opportunities for people to serve on trips to Uganda, Africa for over 19 years and we love it! We host hundreds of people every year for short-term missions and internship opportunities. Our Ugandan staff team consistently serves in surrounding villages and they joyfully lead individuals/teams throughout the year!
