Love Brings Change

Kim came to our St. Louis home in 2005, broken, lost, and struggling with an eating disorder as a means to try to escape the pain of her past. While at Mercy, she experienced first hand the love of her Savior, and her life was truly transformed. Today, Kim is a full-time missionary to the nation of Guatemala, where she gets to extend the love of Christ to people who might otherwise never have the opportunity to hear about God’s love and forgiveness.

Kim recently returned home to the States for the holidays and a brief sabbatical. While she was here, she took the time to come and visit the Nashville home and encourage the girls who are currently in the program. Kim shared about the truth of who Jesus is and encouraged the girls to walk out their freedom after they leave Mercy. The girls really connected with Kim, knowing she was once in their shoes.
Her ministry in Guatemala is called Amor Trae Cambio in Spanish, which means Love Brings Change. I was so blessed to receive a special gift from her during her visit – a piece of art she drew depicting the love of Christ she found while at Mercy. We are keeping it in our prayer room so that our staff can remember to pray for Kim and the work she is doing.

To learn more about Kim’s work in Guatemala, check out her website at www.gmokids.org and her blog at www.vesseloflove.blogspot.com.

We are so proud of Kim and thought you might like to hear about what God has done and is continuing to do in her life!

Hope you are having a great week!!

Hello Nancy,
I have just recently found your blog and it has been quite encouraging! I was reading back to a post you made on November 27 where you shared Vicki’s story of freedom that she found through your books. You offered to send books to girls that struggle with the issues addressed at Mercy. I was just wondering if that offer still stood? Lol, I don’t even know if you’ll get this, but I hope so! Thank you for sharing such encouraging testimonies of what the Lord is doing in lives at Mercy. Each story is such a blessing! Have a blessed week!
