Novelist Lisa Samson and her eighteen-year-old daughter, Ty, originally traveled to Africa to minister to a population devastated by HIV/AIDS and then write a book about their experience. They were woefully naive when they arrived in Africa and profoundly changed when they returned to the United States. Lisa and Ty considered themselves "average" Christians with a heart for those in need. Their trip to Africa, they assumed, would be missional, merciful, giving. However, as mother and daughter are confronted with incidents of child prostitution, preventable illness, poverty, oppression, abuse, and death so prevalent it leaves no time to mourn, their journey takes a decidedly different tack. They travel inward, asking some hard questions and discovering some difficult truths that shake their Christian complacency to the core. Offering two unique perspectives, Lisa and Ty write about smiles in a place of aching sadness, mercy in a place of heart-wrenching poverty, and hope in a place where the average life expectancy is thirty-two years of age. Ultimately, Love Mercy is a chronicle of two people transformed by God in ways, and in places, they never expected.
