Before coming to Mercy, I struggled with depression due to past sexual abuse. I was not very pleasant when I was around my family, and I had no energy to invest in my life. My mom was friends with someone who had previously graduated from Mercy, so she suggested that I apply.
When I came to Mercy, I soon realized that I am worth something and that forgiving people lets me live in freedom. I also learned that setting boundaries is okay, even if that means setting boundaries with myself. God has reawakened my dreams to love and care for people well and share His love to others. I learned that my voice counts, and the Lord’s truth is so powerful!
After Mercy, I hope to one day become a missionary to a foreign country so I can tell others about Christ’s love. I do not have enough words to express my thankfulness to all who donate to Mercy. I am so appreciative for all the Mercy supports who have impact my life!
