Graduate Gives back in Honduras!!

One of my greatest joys is hearing from former Mercy residents who have gone on with their lives and are now giving back to others. Almost every day, I receive an email or Facebook message from a former Mercy girl who is updating me on what is going on in her life. I just received an email with pictures from Chelsea, who graduated from the Nashville home last October. Chelsea is 15 years old and just returned from a mission trip to Honduras with her church and family. They spent a week building a feeding kitchen in the village of Caire, as well as putting on a Vacation Bible School for the children there. I wanted to share the joy with you! Here is her email along with the pictures she sent to me from her trip.

Dear Nancy,

I just wanted to thank you again for the support you gave for my trip to Honduras. It was such an amazing time in my life. I got to do songs in the VBS and also share God’s Word with the children. While we were there, we had about 30 children receive Christ. I also got to meet the little boy that my family has been sponsoring for five years. He is almost 13 and is the sweetest boy ever. I cannot wait to go back. Even though I cannot speak Spanish, I still love being with the people. God has healed me and has given me a heart to be with the people there and love on them. The feeding kitchen we built is so amazing and beautiful! God has blessed my family’s life!

God Bless,
Check out these pictures from Chelsea’s trip –
