Supporters of the Lake Cumberland region uniting to fund a Christian vision to help the community through meeting needs & making connections


Traveling Mercy is a Christian non profit organization that seeks to meet a need in the Lake Cumberland region of Kentucky. We will specifically target Russell, Adair, and Casey counties. It is our hope that God will provide us with a home base in Russell County.

These days, everyone could use "a little help along the way." Our vision is to provide affordable clothing, furniture, and other household items to families who are able to pay for them. The money from items purchased will be used to meet our monthly expenses and any profit will go towards purchasing food for our Food Pantry.

We hope to be able to provide one bag of food to needy families per week. The number of families that we can serve will depend on the provision that we have.

At the same time, while we will gladly accept donations and purchases in order to fund the vision that God has placed on our hearts, we will not turn anyone away. Within our limits, we will assist in any way possible to meet the needs of our guests. We will also be available to provide gently used items to families who have suffered through a fire or other extenuating circumstances, at no charge.

We are already doing these things on a small scale by working with private individuals. Our prayer is that God will provide the funding in order to offer this opportunity to even more families. We realize that the need is great.

Our greatest desire would be to make personal connections with our guests. We would always be available to offer prayer and spiritual support to anyone we come in contact with. We wish to show the love of Jesus to all those who enter our doors. If they do not know Him, then maybe one act of kindness would prompt them to want to know more about Him.

We are currently in a month of prayer and fundraising for this vision. You can help by donating any amount of money that God impresses upon you. Our goal is to raise $1500.00 of start up money before we open our doors to the public. We believe that we have found the location that God has for us, but we are committing that to a month of prayer as well. Even more so, please place this ministry on your prayer list and pray that God will give us the wisdom and courage we need to see His will through.

God Bless each of you!

Jennifer & Jackie
