Life in the Fast Lane

This last week has been really busy!! I just got back from attending the Hillsong Conference in Australia where I got a chance to catch up with our new Mercy family and have dinner in their home. Below is a picture of me with them. I also took a little bit of Nashville with me and gave the boys a Tennessee Titans football jersey!

I got off the plane from Australia Saturday night and spoke at a conference in Nashville on Sunday morning.

Then, I had an opportunity to do TV taping for TBN last night with Matt and Laurie Crouch. Check out some of the pictures below!

dear nancy,

i am 31 years old, from carmel, indiana (indianapolis area) and in the beginning stages of my journey to open a ministry with a similar vision to mercy ministries.

i have come through so much in my life and the last two years have been full of the greatest struggles i have faced to date...just to come to the point where i knew i was ready. i have had this vision since i was 14 and it is suddenly coming together. it is time. i am scared and excited and worried and overjoyed.

one of the books i have read was 'the dream giver' by bruce wilkinson, and it was a turning point for me as i began to remember the dream i had long forgotten in the turmoil that has been my own life. i have worked through paralyzing ptsd and come through abusive relationships, sexual abuse and so many other forms that my counselors are astounded that i don't have any addicitons and am even able to function. i can only attribute to God.

i have always known that i was called to something greater than myself and even as a teenager, was leading others with struggles that fit with my vision.

in bible college, i trained for ministry and spent some time as a volunteer house parent. my vision also includes a place for abused and battered women and children.

i am ready to begin, and while life is not perfect, i sense that it is time. doors are beginning to open.

if it is possible, i would love to visit mercy ministries and meet you bring my partners in this venture. it is so heavy on my heart to do something now, and i know that your ministry is strong and wonderful and growing. would you be able to allow us to come?

it would be a great honor to us if it were possible. thank you so much for taking the time to read this comment. i know you are busy and i appreciate your help.

respectfully,

amber patterson

I wanted to share that 10 minutes ago this morning, I was reading Phillipians 2 & it mentions that we're called to be shining stars in this world. Well, your 2nd to last picture reminds me of that calling. You're a great example of a shining star!
