Cherish Conference – It’s AMAZING!!!

Katelyn and Reid here. Nancy is currently in the UK speaking at the Cherish Conference (and having SO much fun) so we thought we’d show you some pictures of Nancy’s time there thus far. This year is the 10th Anniversary of the Cherish Conference hosted by Charlotte Gambill and has grown so much over the years that they have to have two 3-day back-to-back conferences to fit everyone in (six days total). How cool is that?! Thousands of women have been showing up to the conference…women from all over Europe and beyond! Along with Nancy, the other guest speakers this year include Lucinda Dooley, Pastor from Hillsong Church in Cape Town, South Africa, and Donna Crouch, Pastor from Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia.

Nancy has been calling us everyday going on and on and on about how amazing the conference has been! She has been telling us about how much of a flow there is of the Spirit of God, and how they are seeing people get saved, healed, and delivered. There has been a unity among the speakers and leaders and a great expectation for God to continue to do more! The girls from Mercy UK have also been able to attend the conference and spend time with Nancy!

Not only did Nancy speak at both conferences, but Charlotte asked Nancy to lead a special afternoon breakout session to train people in how to reach the broken and how they can get more involved with Mercy Ministries in Europe. Our UK Director Arianna Walker co-hosted in the session along with Program Director Debbie Harvie, who is a 2001 graduate of Mercy Ministries in America. It is so amazing that a girl who flew over to the US from the UK and walked through our doors 11 years ago is now happily married with two children and is the Program Director working under Arianna’s leadership. We have an amazing staff in the UK and are so thankful we are able to reach out to the hurting young women in Europe.

Another highlight for Nancy has been seeing the Watoto Children’s Choir perform! Nancy is actually going to Uganda to visit Watoto Ministries with Founders Gary and Marilyn Skinner this summer and will also be speaking at Watoto Church while she’s there. It’s so cool to hear how excited Nancy is about going to visit Watoto and see the ministry firsthand.
