First California Graduation – A History-Making Day!

I am traveling back to Nashville today, but as promised, I just wanted to take a minute to share with you some of the pictures from the first ever graduation at our new Lincoln, California home. It was a very special time as we celebrated the transformation that has occurred in the lives of three young women since they each made the brave decision to call a time out in their lives to come to Mercy Ministries to get help with their life-controlling issues. It was just amazing to be able to see and hear first hand about the work that they have allowed the Lord to do in their lives, and we can’t wait to see what their futures hold for them! Check out a few of the pictures from this very special day. Thank you for all of your prayers and support that made this day, and many graduation days to come, possible!
