Review for Veterans Airlift Command, Saint Louis Park, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first heard about Veterans Airlift Command around 4 years ago when I was going from St. Louis to Mayo Clinic, Rochester between 4-6 times a year. I have now flown with them around 10-15 times. Veterans Airlift Command has not only decreased the costs associated with the travel, but also the stress that comes with traveling. After being injured in Iraq with a Traumatic Brain Inury that caused a brain tumor to grow, I have been able to not be as stressed heading to appointments to see if my brain tumor is progressing and other symptoms that have raised due to have 3 brain surgeries and radiation therapy. I have gotten to know numerous pilots and am so blessed by their generosity. I don't know what I would do without Veterans Airlift Command!

Review for Mercy Multiplied, Nashville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Mercy Ministries is a ministry that saves lives. I was 16 when I choose to go there. I was in a place of despair and had nowhere else to turn. I was told that I wouldn't be normal anymore. The doctors I had been going to had given up on me and sent to psych ward after psysch ward. Money was running tight because of all the medical bills and then one day my parents mental health insurance ran out. I had heard of Mercy but never felt like I needed it. I was diagnosed Bi-Polar, extreme bi-polar. I was behind in High School because of all my mental institution stays and was on 16 different medications when I went to Mercy. I attempted suicide at least once a month and never actually succeeded. Mercy saved me. I went to Mercy without any money because my parents spent their savings on mental wards. That didn't matter to Mercy, they bring in girls free of charge due to the donations they receieve. I was given a new life. I was at Mercy for a year and when I left I was a new person. I was a new person in Christ. I was on only my ADHD medication. Mercy showed me a love of Christ that I had never seen before. They took me for who I was and who I still am today. What the doctors said about me not being able to lead a normal life I have proved wrong. I was told by one of my psychologists that first diagnosed me bipolar that a miracle must of happened, because they didn't see any signs of bi-polar inside me. I know who created that miracle, and Mercy showed me the love of Christ. Christ is the one miracle maker who healed me from all my depression, my suicidal thoughts, and my diagnosis of bi-polar. Mercy Ministries was the one place that didn't label me, they showed that I was a new creation in Christ. I was told I could never lead a normal life. 12 years after leaving Mercy, I am not on any mediciations, I was in the military for 8 years and ranked up, I have a beautiful daughter, and am now a full time student getting my nursing degree with all A's and B's. Mercy took me in free of charge and I left there with more hope than ever before. Mercy Ministries is the most amazing ministry, who truely does what they say they are going to do. This would be on my number one list for non-profit organizations. I now do whatever I can do to raise money so that other girls like me can also get a life-changing experience.

Review for Mercy Multiplied, Nashville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a 15 year old girl on over 20 different antiphyschotic medications. I went from dr to dr with the diagnosis of bi-polar. Then it changed to PMDD. Then it was we have no idea whats wrong with her. I became a ward of the state and was told to go to a home. I chose Mercy Minsitries because I just got done touring it, and was amazed at how much the girls loved it. They were so happy. I wanted to be that happy. I grew up in a Christain home, but did not always get it. I came to Mercy broken, misunderstood, and alone. I came home from Mercy whole, understood, and with a whole new family. I grew up in the year that I was there and learned that when no one else is around. There is a God who is there at all times. Since being there I went over to Iraq and got injured. I learned that I had a brain tumor (after which the doctors say probably caused the problems I had as a teenager (who knew)) I have been through 3 brain surgeries and 3 months of serious radiation treatments. I still have the tumor there, but it has shrunk considerably. I will probably always have a brain tumor, yet at the same time. I was strong because of my faith. I had my strong faith because of Mercy. I was optimistic because of Mercy. I fought because I had Jesus Christ on my side. I live by Ephesisans 6:10 "Be Strong in the Lord and in the POWER of his Might." Mercy Ministries not only gave me the faith, but the family that still surrounds me today. After 10 years of leaving Mercy, I still keep in touch with many of the girls. Without Mercy Ministries (which helped me get off ALL medication and showed me that I COULD be normal and live a normal life even after dr's told me no) I would probably still be going from Dr to Dr and feeling lost and alone. Mercy Minsitries saved my life!
