Niki Taylor has long been a supporter Mercy Ministries because of our work in helping restore wholeness to generations of hurting young women. Both she and her husband, Burney Lamar, were guests of honor at our 25th Anniversary Gala on April 17, 2008 at LP Field, where they spoke in support of Mercy.

"Being in the world of modeling where everything is about appearance, I know all too well how the world places an over-emphasis on what we see on the outside. Girls often resort to self-destructive patterns. I personally support the work of Mercy Ministries because I have seen first hand the changed lives." - Niki Taylor

Thank you Niki and Burney for your ongoing support!!
