Pastor Kathy Farrington visits Mercy Ministries

Kathy Farrington speaking at the California home
Residents at the California home were excited to see the familiar face of Pastor Kathy Farrington yesterday as their guest speaker. Kathy and her husband Greg are the pastors at Sunset Christian Center, the home church of our Sacramento area residents. Kathy is also the daughter of Buzz Oates, a commercial real-estate developer, who generously gave $2.5 million and the land for the building of the California home.

Kathy spoke to the girls about the power of forgiveness and choosing to let go of offenses. She encouraged them to take the hurt and resentment they have kept hidden in darkness and bring it into the light. They learned that exposing their issues is what gives them the power to overcome and walk in victory. Here’s what some of them had to say about Kathy’s visit.

“Kathy’s passion for Mercy girls to be free is very evident through her teaching. A huge thing that impacted me was hearing that as I uncover my issues, God completely heals them and I no longer have to worry about my past!” –Whitney

“Kathy’s love and passion for God touched all of us. I am so grateful for her and her kind heart. She is like a second mom to all us girls!” - Sara

The girls were so encouraged by Kathy’s words and always love spending time with her. To see Kathy’s husband, Greg, baptizing 22 girls from our California home, CLICK HERE.
