From Mercy's Well email newsletter of February 21, 2013:
We had some great services in NC and TN last weekend, and wanted to thank those of you who were able to come out and support us! Pastor Toby, Drew, and Mike from Enon Baptist Church made us feel right at home. We enjoyed a nice, warm breakfast and fellowship around the table before the morning service - a great way to start the day! We ended the evening at the church of our good friend, Brian Franklin. This was our first visit to FBC Mountain City, TN but hopefully not out last. We got Pastor Ricky up on the stage to sign with us, so we think that left a pretty good impression on him. He's one of us now!
One of the great opportunities we had while in Haiti was the privilege of sponsoring another child through our ministry - Ashlee. We met Ashlee and her family, and were able to spend just a few minutes talking with them about life. Ashlee's mother mentioned that, as a result of the earthquake in 2010, one of her tents (used for cooking, cleaning, etc.) had been severely damaged, and that she was trying to save their money to buy a new one. After this meeting with Ashlee's family, we spoke with some of the Compassion Int'l Directors who were with us, and inquired about what it would take to get Ashlee's family a new tent. A monetary goal was set, and we casually mentioned this idea to some dear friends of ours in Florida. The next week, upon our return to the States, we got a call from this couple saying they felt a burden to help, presented this need to their Sunday School class, and raised enough money - on the spot - to purchase a new tent for Ashlee and her family! This is so exciting for us! This is what being the hands and feet of Jesus is all about! Let this be an encouragement to you today: God is still in the business of changing lives through people like me and you!
Our most recent radio release, "Beautiful, Terrible Cross" is making its way onto more and more radio playlists across the country, so keep calling and requesting it - hopefully you will hear it on your station TODAY!
Have a blessed week!
