We are so excited to celebrate our recent graduates! We saw 12 young women graduate from the program, and two of our minors maintained their studies and received their high school diplomas. These young ladies have worked so hard, and we are excited to see all that God is going to do in their lives. Please note that minors and graduates not wishing to publish their stories are not shown.
“God has truly healed me of my self-harm behaviors. I no longer desire to hurt myself. My depression has decreased, and I have learned how to communicate and express my emotions in healthy ways. I never used to hear God’s voice until I came to Mercy. I feel like my relationship with Him has grown tremendously. After graduating from Mercy, I plan on going to work and joining a young adult small group at a church.”
“My life was dark before coming to Mercy, but during my time there, I learned about forgiveness and God’s love for me. He has made me feel loved and cherished, like every awful thing I’ve been through is for a purpose but wasn’t part of His plan. After graduating, I want to do studies on spiritual warfare and possibly get a degree in theology. I’d like to work somewhere God-centered.”
“I realized that no matter how far I’ve gone wrong, GOD has a plan for my life, and that will not change; neither does his love. God has healed me of my shame, heartbreak, and fear and has helped me break free from the unhealthy patterns. God has set me free from my bondage and has literally given me back my laughter and joy. After graduating from Mercy, I will be applying to a program to do missionary work and enrolling in college. I want to do full-time ministry after I get my degree.”
