Nancy Alcorn Visits Mercy Ministries Friends and Partners in Wyoming

Last Monday, Mercy Ministries’ founder, Nancy Alcorn, along with Christy Singleton, Executive Director of Development, had the special opportunity to visit Sheridan, Wyoming to share the Mercy vision at a private gathering of friends and community leaders, hosted by some Mercy’s most special partners, Casey and Sue Osborn. The Osborn’s support Mercy Ministries very generously financially, but are also personal participants in the ministry.. Nancy and Christy considered it a joy to get to spend the day with the Osborn’s, touring their offices, seeing some other projects they are involved in, and sharing the vision at Mercy with some of their friends and family.

Sue Osborn said, “We look at our relationship with Mercy Ministries, not as a one way relationship of just financial donations, but a two way partnership where both parties share in the harvest of the seeds planted by the other.”

Casey also shared with us why he loves partnering with Mercy Ministries.

“Sue and I have been supporters of Mercy Ministries for over 15 years. We do not want to be just contributors or donors. We want to be participants and with Mercy, we are!”

This amazing couple has a heart for building God’s Kingdom and are also heavily involved in the Sure Foundation Family Ministry that cares for the healing, transformation and protection of the families of the Crow Indian Reservation in south central Montana. Casey and Sue are involved in helping to build a church on the Indian reservation in the Crow Community. This project is near and dear to them and they wanted to be sure to share their hearts for this project during this visit. During their visit, Nancy and Christy had to opportunity to see the progress on this new building and meet some of the special people who are making this kind of ministry possible. Here is what Nancy Alcorn had to say about her experience:

“We actually got to meet the pastor and the worship leader at this new church, who were also there helping to finish the building. It was so special to us to meet these precious men of God and to see their heart for their own people and the entire ministry that will undoubtedly happen in this building when it is finished.”

After visiting the church, Nancy and Christy were able to get up close and personal with an elk and some buffalo! To read more about Nancy’s time with these special friend’s of Mercy, visit her blog at

A special thanks to Casey and Sue Osborn for their faithful ongoing support of the work of Mercy Ministries!
