A Mother Praises God for Mercy Ministries

I can’t think of a better way to express my gratitude than to share these words straight from the heart of Terri, mom of a Mercy resident who is graduating this month. I met Terri recently and knew you would be encouraged by her story. It just goes to show how your financial partnership with Mercy transforms entire families!

“My daughter Megan used methods of self-destruction for five years, including an eating disorder, drugs, alcohol and terribly unhealthy relationships. That changed the playing field for our family—everyone went into a zone defense out of necessity. Every door was locked, every heart was guarded and everyday life was a series of taking care of the next fire ignited by Megan’s choices. But the GOOD NEWS is God was there! After hearing Nancy Alcorn speak at a church service, I felt the Lord telling me Megan would be at Mercy Ministries one day. This month she will graduate from the Mercy home in St. Louis, free from her issues! She is claiming a future she never believed she deserved. In Meg’s words, coming to Mercy Ministries was a “game changer.” What about the rest of our family, my husband and three other daughters? Because of Megan’s healing, her sisters are pursuing the Lord in full force, far beyond what I ever imagined! Also, our family is now burdened for hurting people. We understand heartache and have a huge desire to love, encourage and uplift the broken. The zone defense we once used is now an offensive healing strategy instead! 

We are so excited to have our bubbly Megan back and overjoyed to be one as a family again! We are stronger, wiser, and more in love with the Lord than ever! PRAISE GOD FOR MERCY MINISTRIES!! Because of your obedience and the support of so many people whom I can never begin to thank properly, the Lord has won a mighty victory!!” 
—Terri, mom of current resident Megan

Thank you for being the hands and feet to make a way for Megan and so many other girls to find freedom. You not only transform these girls’ lives with your giving, but you impact whole families and communities to care about broken people. I am beyond grateful for you!!

Sincerely in Christ,
Nancy Alcorn
