1995 Mercy Graduate Still Going Strong!

I remember when Lisa first came to Mercy and was such a broken and confused young woman. It blows me away to see all that God has done in her life, and I wanted to share it with you. I can’t improve on her own words…
Hey Nancy,

Ya know this life I'm living today wouldn't be possible without you and Mercy Ministries. Attached is a recent family picture that we had taken on Timmy’s 2nd birthday (May 11th), along with our dog Dexter! (Lisa fell in love with the Mercy shelties when she was in the program, and chose to make that their choice for a family dog for their son!) I am so thankful for all the help I received while in the program. I'm so blessed with such a great husband and handsome little boy who I love and adore. Plus, I'm a part of a great church with such awesome Pastors! God used Mercy Ministries to turn my life around and He has used the church that I attend to bring more growth in my walk with the Lord. Praise God for faithful people such as yourself and my Pastors. I am so blessed! I could have never imagined that life could be this good before going to Mercy. What an awesome God we serve!

Hope you enjoy the picture...
Love you,
Lisa

Yes Indeed! God has given us the abilty to send Living Water to the next generations and beyond. I look forward to seeing it all in Heaven. I am an advocate for Mercy Ministries Canada, just viewing some new material to use in our church to bring freedom and healing and the thought that this might be used by Mercy Minitries in their homes just won't leave me so..."Freedom Sessions" by Ken Dyck, I think would be worth taking a look at and I trust God to continue to guide you.
Much love! Lori Brouwer, Powell River, BC Canada
