Yesterday, the Nashville staff and residents were so excited when Dutch Sheets and his family made a surprise visit to the Nashville home. Dutch and his wife Ceci were in town for business and could not pass up the opportunity to come by the ministry. During their visit, Dutch took the time to share a few words of encouragement straight from his heart to our girls and staff.

Dutch, Senior Pastor of Freedom Church in Colorado Springs, is known for his passion for prayer and intercession, and is the President and Co-founder of Dutch Sheets Ministries, a non-profit organization devoted to passionate prayer and world-changing revival. He is the author of the best-selling book Intercessory Prayer and eleven other books including Authority in Prayer and Tell Your Heart to Beat Again.

The Mercy Ministries’ residents are currently going through one of his teaching series’ called “Becoming Who You Are,” which helps the girls discover their identity and purpose in Christ. They were so excited to hear from Dutch in person and have the opportunity to ask questions about what they are learning.

We would like to personally thank the Sheets family for taking the time out their busy schedule to come by and share with our girls and staff.
