The Significance of a Gift

As we celebrate the gift of Jesus’ birth this month, we also thank God for your financial gifts to Mercy Ministries. Your support has made a way for hurting young women to know Christ’s love through their experience at Mercy.

Our current and former residents consistently tell us just how thankful they are for you! Caitlin recently sent us an update of how far she has come since graduating from Mercy in 2008. Caitlin came into the program with an unplanned pregnancy and had suffered abandonment, verbal abuse and depression. At Mercy, she learned to walk in the wisdom and wholeness of Christ, and her life was forever changed.

“I have been working on my degree in sports fitness and nutrition and have gotten married to a wonderful Godly man who is a Godsend to my daughter and I both! I have used everything I was taught to walk in at Mercy, especially the daily discipline of speaking truth and scripture over myself and my family. I am now leading a class at church for women who struggle with addictions to food, helping them deal with the roots of why we run to any addiction.

I cannot thank y'all enough for all the time and wisdom you instilled in me while at Mercy. I not only learned to walk in wholeness of mind, body and spirit, but also in self-discipline, even when trying times come! I tell everyone that Mercy was the game changer for me after being in and out of rehabs and psych wards. Generations in my family line will never be the same thanks to the healing and knowledge I received at Mercy! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love you guys!”
--Caitlin, 2008 Mercy graduate

Caitlin speaks for thousands of Mercy graduates who clearly recognize and deeply appreciate the significance of your financial support. Thank you for providing a way for young women like Caitlin to walk in freedom!

Sincerely in Christ,

Nancy Alcorn
Founder and President
