Special Visit from Jared and Megan Anderson

1Last week, Nashville residents and staff had the awesome opportunity to spend the morning with Jared and Megan Anderson from New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado. While serving full-time on the worship team at New Life Church, Jared has written and composed songs that are now sung in churches worldwide, such as “Amazed” and “Promises.” He led the girls in an intimate time of worship and then Megan shared her own incredible testimony of redemption and transformation. The couple spent the rest of the morning praying with several of the residents individually. They were deeply touched by the ministry they received through this powerful couple.

Before they left, the Anderson’s generously gifted each resident with Jared’s new album, “Jared Anderson Live from My Church,” and a t-shirt that highlights a song off one of his albums.

Thank you Jared and Megan for taking the time to come and bless our residents and staff! Here is what a few of the Mercy girls had to say in response to the Anderson’s time at Mercy Ministries:

Katie said, “Megan spoke with such open and precious vulnerability. Her story encouraged me about my future! I had believed that I could never have a husband or children because of my past, but she reminded me that God has planned great things for my future which include a Godly husband.”

Justine said, “I was overwhelmed my Megan and Jared’s testimony and touched by Megan’s unbelievable wholeness and joy. I am asking God for renewed hope and asking for His presence to move in my life.”

Crysania said, “I relate to Megan because she experienced a lot of sexual abuse. Just like her, God has a different plan for my life. I’m thankful that I’m here at Mercy taking time to seek God’s healing power.’

Kalissa said, “I loved hearing Jared’s music this morning! He has a humble heart for worship and is a great example of an awesome man of God!”
