For Valentine’s Day in our residential homes, we wanted to surprise our residents with special valentines filled with notes of encouragement from our generous donors. Mercy supporters were given the opportunity to show God’s love in a tangible way by sharing words of encouragement with residents through the purchase of a Valentine’s Day postcard. We were blown away by the response from our Mercy supporters and in total, over 1,000 valentine’s cards were purchased and distributed among Mercy residents! We want every resident who walks through our doors to feel the unconditional love of Jesus, and these valentines notes from our donors were such an amazing way to do just that.
These are just a few of the responses we received from residents after reading through their Valentine’s Day postcards:
“I’m learning that God can speak to us through people, places, and things. To realize His love can be given to us through people we’ve never even met goes to show His love is never ending and we can receive it no matter where we are. Thank you so much!” -Mercy Resident
“This made me feel so seen and loved. Through your kind words, it reminded me that the Lord loves me too. Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus!” -Mercy Resident
“Thank you so much for your dedication to write us all these sweet messages! I feel very blessed, and your words gave me courage to keep fighting my battles while I’m here at Mercy.” -Mercy Resident
“Being at Mercy can be hard, but to have encouraging donors help us and support us along the way is amazing. Thank you so much for the sweet valentines!” -Mercy Resident
We want to thank everyone who supported our residents by sending a special valentine. Your words of encouragement are making an impact on our residents! Thank you for helping us show them how loved, supported, and special they are. We are so grateful for you!
