Welcome to the Mertz Family Project Page!
Shawn and Shaun Marie have answered God's call and stepped out in faith to adopt from China. The Mertz Family and a team of volunteers worked on two widows' homes to help raise funds to cover the high cost of adoption.
The loss of a beloved spouse often makes it difficult for a widow to keep up with the necessary improvements and repairs to her home. So on July 27, the Mertz Family and the team of volunteers fixed up two widows' homes - Ms. Mary Jane Payne and Ms. Barbara Kerkeles.
IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO DONATE! See the completed project video here:
Volunteers are raising sponsorship for their day of service. The supplies for the project were donated. The money raised will help bring an orphan into a forever family!
