UK Musician and Worship Leader Visits the Nashville Home

Mercy Ministries' girls and staff were excited to welcome Lara Martin to the Nashville home on Thursday. Lara is a singer, songwriter, and worship leader at Abundant Life Church located in Bradford, England, and she also serves on the Board of Directors for Mercy Ministries UK.

Lara met Nancy Alcorn and first heard about Mercy Ministries when Nancy spoke in the UK in October of 1999. Not long after that, Lara and the women’s director from Abundant Life Church visited the Nashville home and fell in love with the work of Mercy Ministries. They were interested in learning more about the ministry in hopes of helping bring Mercy Ministries to the United Kingdom – which has now become a reality as we have a home open in the Bradford area and plans for expansion in the UK well underway.
Lara was astonished to see the growth that has taken place at Mercy Ministries over the last 9 years as well as the continued excellence. She loved the atmosphere and exclaimed, “I feel the presence of God as soon as I walk in the doors. You can’t deny it. It is very powerful.”
