Review for Mercy Multiplied, Nashville, TN, USA
After talking to someone from Mercy Multiplied yesterday and being treated so unkindly by the intake I had to write to share my experience and question how a place that wants to "help" only hurt me. I am a fifteen year old sex trafficking victim with an eating disorder and from the moment I spoke with the lady in intake- it seemed she was looking for every reason to say no to my application. She asked me if I could get my parents to sign paperwork to allow me to go, but when I said yes, I felt her disappointment on the other side of the phone. She asked me about my eating disorder which is really the LEAST concerning of all I struggle with considering my recent trauma of trafficking. Yet, in her merciless way, she said if you can't eat everything we have to offer, including meat, then you can't come. I explained to her that I would try my best to and that I would just need to some help in taking steps to eat EVERYTHING, but I am willing to try my best as long as I could have some counseling to support me. This was not good enough and she refused to consider helping, but instead kept REJECTING all of my efforts to try and be good enough to receive help. There was no mercy, no compassion, no prayer, no care. Even if the answer was no, it would have been a little easier to swallow if she had kindness in her words and the love of God in her heart. I share this to say, maybe God is the one who had mercy on me so I didn't have to be under their care to heal. Maybe he spared me being hurt from "Christians" who would only break me further. Thank you MERCILESS MULTIPLIED for killing my hope in getting healed and believing that the people of God are good.
