Mercy Ministries Celebrates the Fourth of July!

The 4th of July weekend was full of fun for the residents of our four U.S. homes. The residents at the Lincoln home kicked things off the last weekend of June by attending the “Celebrate America” event at the Sunset Christian Center in the Sacramento area. There were over 10,000 people in attendance and Mercy Ministries founder Nancy Alcorn was a featured speaker! The girls rounded out the holiday weekend on Saturday with a picnic supper and fireworks.

Residents at the Monroe home went swimming, played volleyball, grilled hamburgers, and ate some fun and festive holiday desserts while the girls at the Nashville and St. Louis homes celebrated with fireworks and face painting at local parks. It was a fun and relaxing change in routine for all of our U.S. residents. We hope you enjoy these great photos from the holiday weekend:
