Nancy Alcorn – President and Founder of Mercy Ministries (speaking to camera): I’m here at our Mercy Ministries National Headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee and behind me I have forty amazing girls who are here to receive new life in Christ and to find out that God has a plan and purpose for their life and that their past does not have to destroy their future. And because of churches who put Mercy Ministries in their missions budget across America and because of individuals who are monthly partners with Mercy Ministries and those of you who are going to participate in our Dollar For Life campaign–because of you guys, Mercy Ministries is able to take these girls in free of charge.
They are able to get the help they need and Mercy Ministries has freedom to share the love of Christ and the forgiveness of God and how He puts a new heart and a new spirit in us and gives us a new beginning. And I just want to thank you. Normally, Mercy Ministries does a video where we have testimonies and we edit and we try to make it all pretty but today I just wanted to do a live thing. I wanted you to see the faces of the Mercy Ministries girls you’re helping. And I wanted you to be able to hear from Mercy Ministries how much I love you and how much I appreciate you.
Right now Mercy Ministries has about seven hundred girls on our waiting list trying to get into the program. Mercy Ministries is getting ready to open a brand new facility in California that will take forty more girls. So your support will enable Mercy Ministries to continue taking these young ladies in free of charge and sending them out to be awesome women who are going to fulfill their destinies. In fact, we’re having a graduation at Mercy Ministries today and we’ve got a few girls that have just graduated and I thought you might want to meet her. What do you want to say to the people?
Mercy Ministries Graduate: That I almost lost my life several times and God has given me new life and I’m ready to start fulfilling my destiny.
Nancy Alcorn: What do you want to say?
Mercy Ministries Graduate: I wanted to say thank you for all the support and for never giving up on me even when I did.
Mercy Ministries Graduate: I tried taking my life various times and now I’m thankful to be alive every morning. Thank you.
Mercy Ministries Graduate: That hope has been restored through your support and through your prayers and through your love for all of us that came to Mercy without hope. And I didn’t care whether I lived or died. And now my heart beats completely for the Lord because of what happens in this place.
Nancy Alcorn: So in churches all across America we’re asking you to give a dollar or more if God puts it in your heart, for every man, woman, and child so that Mercy Ministries can help more girls. Mercy Ministries has decided not to participate in the recession. Mercy Ministries is believing God to meet every need. So His ways are higher and we believe our needs are met because we’re givers and the Word of God says give and it shall be given. So thank you today. Believe with Mercy Ministries for our needs to be met and we’re believing with you for your needs to be met and the seeds that you sow will multiply back to you for many weeks and years to come and that you will prosper even during this difficult time. Thank you all so much.
