Monroe Hosts Friends of Mercy Luncheon

Last Thursday, we hosted a Friends of Mercy luncheon at the Bayou Desiard Country Club in Monroe. This year, we had 100 friends join us, and we raised over $4,000 in support for the young women we serve. Everyone had a chance to hear life-transforming testimonies from two Monroe graduates who are now on staff at the Monroe home. Guests also heard from a current Monroe resident, Angel, who shared about how God has touched and healed her heart since being at Mercy. Sherry Peveto, a 1989 graduate, explained why she feels strongly called to give back to Mercy, and she challenged guests to become ministry partners and continue sow into the lives of future generations by giving to this program.

We would like to thank Kerry Wooten of Kerry Wooten Photography www.kwootenphotography.com for donating his photography services for the luncheon as well as Dr. John Ledbetter of Louisiana Pain Care www.lapaincare.com who committed $1,000 as a business sponsor.

This event was a great success! We are so thankful to our friends and ministry partners who have made the decision to invest their resources into programs with eternal value. Your commitment promises a message of hope to countless hurting young women.
