Mercy Ministries Graduates Serve Christ by Serving Others

This week at Hillsong has been such a great week, not only the ministry part, but also connecting with so many people and catching up with old friends. Joel Osteen and the Lakewood team hit it out of the park last night! Cindy Cruse Ratcliff and Israel Houghton, and the brother and sister team of Anointed joined together with the Lakewood team for an amazing time of worship before Joel spoke. Tonight we get Louie Giglio and he is one of my all time favorites!!! I cannot wait! It will be bitter sweet because it is the closing night, but I know it will be awesome!!! I have also run into a lot of Mercy graduates from Australia here, which is always so encouraging to me to see the girls living life to the fullest and excited about their future.

Speaking of graduates, I just got an email from a graduate back in America telling me that three Mercy graduates are going on a mission’s trip. Let me share her own words with you.

Hey Nancy,

I just wanted to tell you something awesome! Three St. Louis Mercy Graduates - Lauren, Kim, and I are all going to Guatemala to minister together in a little less than a week. It is awesome to be able to take the freedom that we learned and, as a team, minister that same hope and freedom to the nations! We will send you some pictures and an update when we get back at the very end of July.

Love you. God bless.

Pray for these girls as they go to Guatemala to serve the people there. So cool to see these girls serving Christ by serving others – that’s what it’s all about! Make sure you reach out to someone today in your world.

Love to all,
