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 want you to know there is a place for you in this ministry.

We desire our lives and work to be a reflection of the Kingdom of God that lies within us. We realize that every circumstance is an opportunity to show God’s light and reveal the truth of who He is. The way we see, think and speak reflects the finished work of the Cross. We live a celebratory lifestyle marked by rejoicing, thanksgiving and gratitude. We show honor and respect to everyone we encounter. We work together AS ONE in Christ. 




We take personal responsibility for the mission and vision of Show Mercy. We take individual and collective responsibility for our actions. We steward all resources as if they were our own and to the best of our ability.


We are passionate about the mission and vision of Show Mercy and therefore, we go above and beyond expectations in our work. We allow our relationship with Jesus shine through in all we do. We display our passion across all areas, from stewardship of resources to our work productivity.



We continually evaluate and improve upon ourselves to add value to the organization and ourselves. We are motivated and encouraged to continually grow and learn by taking on new challenges. We are adaptable, flexible and proactive. We look for ways to benefit the organization, not use the organization for our own benefit.
