Kingdom Connections

I just got the coolest letter in the mail today from a young girl who graduated high school last May in Wisconsin. She actually learned about us on Natalie Grant’s website and then later on decided to go back and check us out online. Today she sent me this awesome letter with a $100 contribution, and I just wanted to share it with you. I was so moved by her letter that I asked my assistant to contact her to email some pictures so that we could put a face with the name.

I never cease to be amazed at how the Holy Spirit will connect people for Kingdom purposes. I hope this will encourage you to reach out to those you believe you have been divinely connected with. Have a great weekend.

Dear Ms. Alcorn,

I sincerely would like to thank you, your staff, and volunteers for all of the wonderful work that you do with all of the Mercy girls. I know that both the girls and their families are extremely blessed by your work, your faith, and most importantly your Savior.

About a month ago, I came across your link on Natalie Grant’s website. I had seen it before, but I had never paid much attention to it. This time, however, I was overcome with curiosity and I explored your site. I ordered your books and I can’t begin to describe how much of an impact they have made on my life. They have been such a blessing to me as I am seeking God’s will for my life after high school. The Father has been showing me, for over a year now, what true unconditional love is through different people and His Word. I am so grateful that you took the time and energy to write “Echoes of Mercy.” I was completely overwhelmed by the work that Jesus Christ did and continues to do through you because you decided to allow Him to use you. His Spirit is so radiant within you. I thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving you this vision and allowing you to have the patience, grace, love, and strength to carry it out.

May God the Father continue to bless you and His ministry to these young women. Continue always to walk in His ways.

In Christ,
