Its not just the beautifully decorated space that strikes visitors to the Mercy Ministries home.
There is definitely much more to the atmosphere here than the modern and thoughtful detail that makes the home so inviting. What makes the home inviting is the Spirit behind every detail.
Nancy Alcorn Spoke about the home and the atmosphere created here in her first visit after it was completed.
The Spirit of Excellence: The home represents a desire to serve women well, to give them the best of what God and His church have to offer. Never serving carelessly or callously; not just the best in terms of furnishings and living environment, but the best in standards, staff and support.
The Spirit of Comfort: The home brings comfort to women who have been uncomfortable with themselves for a long time. The comfortable environment reminds them that they are God’s treasures and that He alone can provide relief and comfort from the pain that they have endured.
The Spirit of Care: The care that went into designing the home and that goes into maintaining the home reflects the care for the young women who come through the doors. Just as much care and more is poured into each young woman’s life. She is carefully looked after and given every opportunity to experience the transforming power of God’s love.
The Spirit of Perseverance: Perseverance is what has turned the vision given to Nancy Alcorn into reality and eventually brought that vision to Canada. That perseverance continues in the vision to see each girl live her life to its full potential. No matter how far from God’s will a young woman has drifted, or how much pain has distorted her life, the staff at Mercy Ministries encourage here to pursue her healing and will persevere with her.
