What a Week!!

We have had an amazing week with the girls in the Nashville home – it has been a time of special guests bringing special ministry this entire week. We have had our dear friends, Pastors Tom and Jane Hamon, with us from Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. It has been a great time of teaching and personal ministry to both the girls and staff. We are very closely connected to this couple, and they have spoken into the lives of our girls and staff for many years.

In addition, we have also had two of our Australian leaders here with us this week, Adrian and Jayne Feben.

Not only have they been able to bless us, but our staff have been able to bless them through an intentional time of training and connection with each and every department that operates throughout our international headquarters here in Nashville. What a joy it is to have such quality people on our new team in Australia.

As if that’s not enough, today we were blessed to have Kathi Pitts with us from Toledo, Ohio who pastors Cornerstone Church with her husband, Michael. They are a powerful couple in the Kingdom, and I had the pleasure of speaking at her women’s conference this past February. It is so cool to have her spend a couple of days with us. Kathi will also be with us tomorrow as Lisa Bevere makes her way to Nashville for two very special sessions with our girls and staff.

I want to share one more thing with you before I close this blog today. I knew about the previous guests that I had mentioned because we had planned for them to come, but today we had a surprise visit from a couple that we are in personal relationship with – Jeremy and Sarah Pearsons. Jeremy is the grandson of Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, and he and his wife, Sarah, came by to share with us about a new project that they want to do to support Mercy Ministries. While they were here, they also gave a special seed offering toward this new project. We are believing with them for an incredibly blessed partnership. More details will be forthcoming about this. Here we are with a special picture that we had made in the lobby just this afternoon.

Hope you are having a blessed day. I will look forward to talking to you again on Friday.
