St. Louis Residents Enjoy "A Night of Hope" With Joel Osteen!

Pastor Joel Osteen
Residents at the St. Louis home were so encouraged by Pastor Joel Osteen’s inspiring message at A Night of Hope this past weekend! Pastors Joel and Victoria Osteen of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas encouraged everyone to believe that 2011 can be a year of new beginnings, better relationships, better lives and hope for the future. What an incredible and appropriate message for the hurting young women of Mercy Ministries! Here’s what some of our residents had to say about the event:
