Monroe Home Hosts Mercy In The Community Luncheon

It was standing room only at the Monroe home yesterday as Community Board Member, Dee Ledbetter, welcomed guests to the Mercy in the Community Luncheon. Dee opened in prayer, and everyone enjoyed a fantastic lunch of grilled chicken and steak kabobs with full baked potato bar and delicious desserts.

Mercy grads, Rebecca and Malorie, and current resident, Meg, then shared their incredible stories of healing and transformation. “When no one else would take me, Mercy said “come,” said 2001 graduate, Rebecca, who is still walking in freedom from addiction 10 years later!

Malorie then described how facing her issues head-on resulted in a joy she had never known before. Malorie graduated from Mercy this past February and will graduate from college this December. While at Mercy, God inspired Malorie to write and perform songs that expressed her gratitude for the amazing love and grace He has shown her, and she shared one of her songs with our guests.

Meg is a current resident and said that being at Mercy has helped her know how much God loves and cherishes her. She graduates in just 3 weeks and now looks to the future with joy and confidence.

After lunch, the Monroe residents gave tours of the home to our guests who were amazed by the beauty of the facility and touched by the testimonies of the girls.
