Mercy Ministries of America, Inc.
May 5, 2010

I first learned about Mercy over a decade ago after hearing Nancy tell her story at a women's conference. After reading Nancy's book, I really identified with her heart to help girls and the principles by which she was guided to do it, particularly offering them help free of charge so they would know they were cared for and valued and not just viewed as a profit center. It's been incredible to see how God has blessed this ministry, expanded their reach and their homes, and the testimonies of the girls' changed lives are the greatest evidence of their success. I believe Nancy's heart to do things with excellence reflects the heart of God in how He views the broken women who come to Mercy for help and restoration. I love that girls who are written off by their families, society and all sorts of medical and psychological personnel graduate Mercy and go on to become doctors, missionaries, wives, Fulbright scholars... What further evidence do we need that a great God, a dedicated staff and an effective ministry can indeed redeem and transform lives? I invest money for a living and am even more judicious with my personal giving, and can honestly say that an investment in Mercy yields a great return every time.
