Power Packed Weekend With Nancy Alcorn!!!

Nancy Alcorn
Mercy Ministries Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn, had an incredible time last weekend speaking at five different services for Friendship World Outreach (FWO) in Waverly, Tennessee. FWO’s pastor, Josh Hannah, not only answered the call to start this amazing church but also founded Hope Center Ministries, a residential recovery program for young men struggling with addiction.

The Nashville residents took the trip with Nancy to FWO and were so encouraged to hear her share the story of Mercy Ministries. Nancy talked about the years she spent in a juvenile correctional facility, unable to share Christ with hurting and angry young girls. She then shared how God led her to a job working with police to investigate the worst cases of child abuse, showing her the reasons why the young women in the juvenile correctional facility were so hurt and angry, unable to find freedom. Nancy challenged everyone to remember “the why behind the what.”

It was an incredible time of fellowship, and God moved in the hearts of the people at Friendship World Outreach as well as the young women in the Nashville home who are so grateful for Nancy’s message of hope. Here’s what some of them had to say about Nancy’s message:

I thought it was very encouraging. I know that I am so blessed to be here and that one day I will be able to help others that struggle with the same things. - Bethany

I really liked the message today. I am so blessed when Nancy speaks because it reminds me that without her vision and obedience, I wouldn’t be at Mercy today. Who knows where I would be? - Julianne

I am a recipient of Nancy’s obedience to the Lord. The blessing on her life and those who have partnered with her has allowed me to receive and experience freedom in Christ. I am so grateful for Mercy Ministries. - Alma

Special thanks to Pastor Josh Hannah and everyone at Friendship World Outreach. Here are some photos from our visit to this awesome church:
