Evidence That God Is Real – Check It Out For Yourself!!

I just got a really cool email from a young woman who graduated from Mercy in February of 2010. God did such a tremendous work with her while she was here in the program, and He continues to bless her to this day. I want to share with you a portion of her email along with pictures from her recent wedding. This story is so exciting and so encouraging...

“In my wildest dreams, I would have never imagined that just over a year after graduating Mercy I would be marrying such a godly man who loves me despite my tainted past. I used to tell my counselor that no man would ever want to be with me after what has happened to me and the things that I have done, but God's grace and power to transform is so much greater than my past!

Jacob and I have known each other for years, but the bondage I was in kept me from being able to have the God-centered relationship that I always desired. It is only through going to Mercy and experiencing the healing that I so desperately needed that I was able to enter into this pure, Godly, covenant relationship. Jacob has been a physical representation of the unconditional love of Christ that I first discovered during my time at Mercy.

Thank you, Nancy, for the opportunity you enabled me to have to find healing and restoration.”

I wanted to share a portion of Kati’s email along with these amazing wedding pictures. There is something about seeing pictures that provides insight into things that are written. I think these pictures totally display what Kati is trying to express in this email to me. I hope you are just as blessed as I am when you read this and see the visual evidence of what Kati is speaking about.

Have a great weekend, and don’t forget to pray for me as I am speaking in the Texas prisons. Last night during my first of four services, there were 502 inmates that chose to attend, and a large number of them raised their hands to receive Christ. Please believe with us for more lives to be impacted as we continue this great weekend inside the walls of four different women’s prisons in Texas.
