Mercy Residents Love Their Neighborhood!

Mercy Ministries residents from the St. Louis home recently spent some time sorting clothes at the St. Louis Family Church. On Saturday, they helped distribute those clothes along with shoes and school supplies at a “Love the Neighborhood” community outreach. It was a memorable day for the girls as well as the people of the 27th Ward area. Here’s what one of the residents had to say about the event:

Casey: I’ve never done anything like this before! To see all the little kids and their snow cone stained smiles melted my heart. This will have a lasting impact not only on their lives, but my own as well.

Everyone enjoyed the games, inflatables, and live bands, as well as a special message from guest speaker Reinhard Bonnke. Check out this video and these pictures of the St. Louis residents giving back!
