Nancy Alcorn, Mercy Ministries’ Founder and President, said that Friday night’s event was one of the most fun ever for her as a speaker! Right down her alley, the event was a take-off of sports and the training that an athlete must endure to be the best and to win the prize. Nancy is an avid sports fan, and she stated that she loved every second of this event. The theme scripture for the evening was Hebrews 12:1-2 (CEV) and that too is one of Nancy’s favorites - “Such a large crowd of witnesses is all around us! So we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially the sin that just won't let go. And we must be determined to run the race that is ahead of us. We must keep our eyes on Jesus, who leads us and makes our faith complete.” This scripture was even printed on an event shirt that Nancy had the privilege of wearing while she spoke.

The James River “Run Like a Girl” Women’s Rally had a great turnout of registrants and volunteers - 2,000 total. It was definitely a night to remember!!

Debbie Lindell is an amazing leader (Pictured right with Nancy). She knows how to gather and inspire women of all ages to work together to serve the needs of humanity. There was even a post-rally party that lasted until almost midnight, and the women had a chance to show off their sports skills with such games as flag football, basketball, volleyball, dodge ball, and a take-off of The Amazing Race. It was an amazing set up as they had the games set up on the vast grounds outside the church!

If you think this looks cool, you need to consider attending Debbie’s annual women’s conference, Designed for Life, September 30 – October 2, 2010 – click here to check it out. You will definitely not be disappointed!!!
