Before Mercy, I spent most of my time trying to escape reality. I was very anxious, especially in social situations, and afraid of failure. I came out of a lot of poverty and confused thinking. I used self-harm out of frustration and thought it would make people see how much pain I was in. I hated my family and I thought they hated me too. I felt dead inside and believed that there was no hope for me. My dad told me about Mercy, so I decided to apply.
Since coming to Mercy, I am no longer confused and I don’t want to die. I learned that the Bible is God’s Word and it is absolute. I’m not angry at God anymore and I learned that He has a purpose for me that is more than I could ever imagine.
After graduation, I plan to go to college and look forward to seeing all that God has in store for me!
