Check Out the Amazing Things Going on at Mercy Ministries Around the Country!!!

It has been an incredible week for Mercy Ministries residents, staff and supporters across the country. There have been so many exciting things going on and the message of Mercy is multiplying! To start things off last Saturday night, Mercy Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn, attended Jeff Fisher’s Celebrity Softball Game along with the Nashville staff and girls. For the past 10 years, the Jeff Fisher and Friends Charity Softball Game has been a highlight for the staff and residents and has raised funds for Mercy Ministries as well as several other worthy organizations. This year’s event was the “Final Farewell,” and we were so excited to show our support for Coach Fisher, while cheering on some of our favorite Tennessee Titans players as they competed on the softball field. Check out the pictures from this special night…

The Nashville residents also enjoyed a powerful time of ministry during a special private concert with Higher Ground this week. Eddie Combs, Wayne Hilliard, and Rodney Jordan had a huge impact on the girls and staff through their anointed singing and teaching. Here’s what some of the girls had to say about how they were impacted by this awesome time of worship:

This was such an inspiring message. I was so touched by the power of God and the anointing that filled the room. It was so inspiring to hear how much Jesus loves me. - Monica

Their love for the Lord penetrated our hearts to the point where we wanted more of God no matter what it took. He is the only one truly deserving of our worship. – Allie

I felt so free during the service. I was clinging to the truth and life that they were singing about. I loved Rodney’s testimony. It encouraged me to fight for what God is trying to birth in me. I was inspired. - Dani

At the St. Louis home, staff and residents were excited to host 33 people from their community for a Friends of Mercy Luncheon. Everyone was so moved by the amazing stories of transformation and healing shared by current residents Kayla and Niki, who will graduate next week. Riisa Renee, author of “Breaking the Silence,” and Community Board Member, Victoria McCarter, both shared about how giving to Mercy Ministries literally makes the difference between life and death.

Meanwhile, at the California home, the girls prepared a delicious meal for 50 people from the Sacramento community who came to hear more about the work being done at Mercy Ministries. 2010 graduate, Beth, was there to share her incredible testimony of freedom with our guests. Beth had been abused in every way possible and was self-harming to deal with her pain. It has now been a year since Beth graduated from Mercy, and she is now experiencing the freedom and abundant life she never dreamed was possible!
