Meet Our Staff

Judith & Evans 2

Judith & Evans Mutange (Founding Directors) 2001
Founding directors for Great Mercy. Ordained ministers who also pastor the church on the property.

“It has been humbling to see the program grow. I have seen big changes in the small things. It has been incredible to see Great Mercy grow from nothing to something. It is all about the work of God, and that’s the only way it has grown. Without God, I would have given up, but God’s resources cannot be depleted. God will never stop His work.”
-Judith

“I have enjoyed volunteering to teach children when I am not at work. I teach them math and chemistry. I will continue to teach until we have sufficient staff. It gives me joy seeing children becoming better through knowledge. We have very supportive staff, which has been an encouragement. Our staff understands what it means to volunteer. Because of that, they go above and beyond their call of duty. They understand the call on this place. We are glad to be part of helping abandoned, abused, less fortunate and vulnerable children. We find it a joy to help them become better people. It is a joy to serve children and to build them spiritually through our church. Our children fear God and can quote scripture. We have enjoyed watching the grace of God progress our program despite facing many challenges. My role has been a supportive role for my wife who has done so much for this program. I thank God that He uses my wife and has blessed me so that I can give back. I would like to thank our well wishers and friends who have supported us without strings attached. They have seen it as a call of the Lord on their lives. We have been supported joyfully and have friends who can stand with us. We want to emphasize that this is God’s work, we just try to make ourselves available.”-Evans
