How Your Support is Saving Lives

I want to begin this New Year by thanking you for partnering with us to save lives. Your support is deeply appreciated, and I am so excited about all the new things God is going to do through this ministry in 2015.

One of the most fulfilling parts of my job is hearing from former Mercy residents from all over the world about what God is doing in their lives. I wanted to share with you a portion of an update I recently received from 2007 graduate, Devin. After struggling with an eating disorder, sexual abuse and self-harm, Devin came to Mercy, and her life was forever changed.

“Applying to Mercy Ministries was one of the best decisions I ever made. In the seven months I was there, I learned how to focus on my relationship with God, how to eat and work out in a healthy way, how to receive love and grace, how to forgive and move on, and how to deal with hurtful people. 

Since graduating from Mercy, I have earned my bachelor’s degree, gotten married and had a baby. Praise be to God who lifted me out of that deep black hole, turned me around, and set my dancing feet on a new path! I don’t even like to imagine what my life would be like had I not taken those seven months to focus on my “junk.” God definitely restored my life, and I’ve never been the same! I am now living the fruit of my hard work and am healthy emotionally, spiritually and physically. These are the days I dreamed of while I was at Mercy. God is so good!”
 --Devin, 2007 Mercy graduate

Thousands of young women like Devin have come to Mercy and found the hope and healing they desperately needed. Your giving allows us to share the unconditional love of Christ that brings true healing and transformation. We are so grateful for your continued commitment to Mercy Ministries and to the futures of the young women we serve. 

Sincerely in Christ,

Nancy Alcorn
Founder and President
