I think of girls like Emma, who endured physical, emotional, and sexual abuse at the hands of her peers as a teenager. She would drink until she couldn’t feel the pain, and when that stopped working, she turned to self-harm and even tried to take her own life many times. She had given up on herself, but God never gave up on her! At Mercy, Emma rededicated her life to Christ and was changed from the inside out. She graduated last year full of hope, confidence, and joy. She is now at college pursuing a degree in youth ministry!
“At Mercy, God allowed me to start hoping and dreaming again. Before Mercy, I really had no true hope. But now I have dreams that are way bigger than me! I also have a relationship with God that is fresh and exciting.
I want to say thank you to all the Mercy supporters from the bottom of my heart for giving me my life back. It really means a lot to know that people obeyed God, and I get to be on the receiving end of it. I hope to one day do the same and touch others’ lives as I follow what God has planned for me.”
-- Emma, 2013 Mercy Graduate
