Unconditional Love

Uncategorized | April, 02, 2014 | by Nancy Alcorn 0 Comments

Before God told me to start Mercy Ministries, I worked for the government for eight years. During that time, I saw young girls spending a year locked up at a juvenile correctional facility.  At any one time, we would have three hundred girls ages 14-18. How would you like to have 300 angry, messed up, [...]

Surrender

Uncategorized | February, 28, 2014 | by Nancy Alcorn 0 Comments

Everything starts with surrender–surrendering our heart and life to Jesus Christ and understanding that we are no longer our own.  We have been bought and paid for with the precious blood of Jesus.  The freeing part of our work at Mercy is that whether it’s an addiction, sexual abuse, eating disorders, cutting, struggling with finances [...]

Abundant Life

Uncategorized | January, 30, 2014 | by Nancy Alcorn 0 Comments

Satan is the one that comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.”  Abundant life is not identifying with who you used to be or what happened to you.  An abundant life is knowing that you are a new creation.  Old things [...]

Amy’s Story: Part Two

In the last post, I spoke about Amy, one of Mercy’s first trafficking victims. Now, I want to tell you what happened to her. Amy got her mind renewed to the Word of God, found out who she was, and was delivered from her guilt, shame, and condemnation. She found out that God knew everything [...]

Amy’s Story: Part One

Uncategorized | December, 04, 2013 | by Nancy Alcorn 0 Comments

Amy graduated from our St. Louis program several years ago. This young woman was so broken we would often find her wound up in a fetal position or screaming in her sleep from nightmares. Love truly is walking with people through the hard times, and with Amy, we just had to let her know she [...]

Brought Near by the Blood

Satan specializes in destroying people’s lives, then he twists it and makes you feel like it must have been your fault.  How can a five year old being abused be her fault?  John 10:10 says, “The thief comes to kill, to steal, and to destroy.  But Jesus said, ‘I have come that you might have [...]

Don’t Be Double-Minded

Sometimes we’ll do a visual activity at Mercy where we get a Velcro board and we’ll say, “Ok, this is what has been said about you. Victim. Bipolar. Addict. Manic-depressive. Schizophrenic.” We’ll put those titles on the board, then we’ll tell the girls the truth. In James 1, God says, “Do not be double-minded. Let [...]

Be Born Again

Psalms 139 says, “…Before I was in my mother’s womb, God knew me.” We can read that scripture and not truly understand what it’s saying. It’s saying God knows you. He knows you through all the stuff, through all the shame, through all the anger. He knows your neighbor through all their pain, through all [...]

Not Forgotten

My friend, Jane Hammond, has ministered at Mercy for over ten years. Jane is a bold person who does not sugarcoat the Gospel, and she loves to fight on the front lines for young girls who feel like they are the scum of the earth. Several years ago, Jane was with us, and she called [...]

Liberty to the Captives

Uncategorized | April, 03, 2013 | by Nancy Alcorn 0 Comments

My favorite part of speaking at conferences is that I get to stand up and proclaim liberty and freedom to the captives.  It’s so exciting, and I have a secret for you.  You have the freedom to do that as well. When Christ went to the cross for you and I, He said, “It is [...]
