Congressional Candidate CeCe Heil Visits Mercy Ministries

Yesterday, our Nashville residents and staff had the honor of hearing from Congressional Candidate for Tennessee’s 5th district, CeCe Heil. CeCe is an attorney, small business owner, and is the wife of Rick Heil, lead singer of the Grammy nominated group, Sonicflood. We were so excited yesterday when she was able to take time out of her busy schedule to come by, see the ministry firsthand, and encourage our residents and staff!

CeCe shared her family’s amazing testimony of how her husband Rick, who had suffered since childhood with the severe intestinal disorder, Crohn’s Disease, was told by a doctor he only had a very short time to live. However, within a few months of that diagnosis he had a miraculous recovery and is now completely healed. She encouraged the girls and staff that with God, anything is possible! She also encouraged them to never give up faith, never give up on their dreams, and to stand up for what they believe.

Check out this video of some of the girls as they respond to CeCe’s testimony:

Thank you, CeCe Heil, for taking the time to encourage our residents and staff!
