Every child should grow up with a family.
Welcome to the Mercy House.
We are so excited to welcome Kavier, Sirleny, and little Samuel to Josiah's House!! They are our newest house parents, and they are taking care 6 boys in the Terra Cotta house. They have been married for 7 years and they have one son, 2 yr. old Samuel. Their family has had the opportunity to serve God on the mission field, here in the south of the Dominican Republic and also in Guatemala. Their desire as a couple is to glorify God by modeling Christ's relationship with His church and now at Josiah’s House.
