At Mercy, we are thankful for friends who go out of their way to show our residents love and support, especially during this busy holiday time.
Special guests from Cypress Street Church of God paid a visit to Mercy Multiplied Monroe last Saturday. Both children and adults stopped by the Monroe home to bless the residents with a time of Christmas caroling and fellowship. In St. Louis, Senator Kyle McCarter and his wife Victoria celebrated the holiday season with the Mercy residents by building gingerbread houses together.
This is what a couple of residents had to say about their experience:
“It felt like we had our own family spending an afternoon with us. I’ve never felt so much love for someone I didn’t know. I couldn’t have felt more special.” –Taylor
“Victoria came in with her heart wide open and smile that filled the room and our hearts. Senator and Mrs. McCarter showed us we are known and cared for and valued this Christmas season. I am forever grateful.” –Beverly
Some of our Mercy residents have never experienced holidays like Christmas in a loving and safe environment. We are grateful for the faithful supporters who give to Mercy and make it possible for hurting young girls to experience not just the hope and joy of this holiday season, but the hope and joy that comes from God’s healing in their lives.
