Former Mercy Resident Gives Back to Her Community

Rachael Cabrales, a former Mercy Ministries resident from 1996, and her four year old son Richie, are impacting their local community in an amazing way. They entered the Mermaid Jingle Jam jingle contest sponsored by Chicken of the Sea. If they win the jingle contest, $100,000 worth of seafood will be donated to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. The local food bank is in need of help and has recently been forced to purchase food due to a shortage of donations. Being a songwriter, Rachael saw the contest as an opportunity to bond with her son and try to give back to local residents in need of food. She wrote a jingle and recorded her son singing the song. They made the home video in their bathroom using the shower curtain as the backdrop. Richie is quite the performer and we are proud of these two for their efforts to contribute to those in need!

Check out this video in which they were featured on their local news channel, click here.

The contest ends on Dec. 9, 2008.

Mercy Ministries Golf Challenge Raises $47,000











The 2008 Mercy Ministries Nashville Golf Challenge was played under perfect conditions on Monday Oct. 13, at the Governor’s Club in Brentwood, TN. All of the sixteen teams started at noon and played 18 holes of golf. The teams purchased mulligan packages before the tournament and used them to help lower their scores. Each player was encouraged to get sponsorships for their round of golf and all of the money was donated to Mercy Ministries. The tournament raised $47,000. The top fundraisers were Matthew Rettick, Buster Wolfe Jr., Kevin Vozar, and Clay Eschrich. Prizes were awarded to the top fundraisers and the best scores.


There were 64 players in the tournament. Mercy Ministries had their own all female team. Mercy employee, Sarah Blair, participated in the tournament and said, “The Mercy golf tournament was a wonderful event to be a part of. The Governor’s Club was a great host, the weather was perfect and best of all, it was incredible to see all of the people who took a day to support the work of Mercy with their time and money.”

We would like to thank Tennessee Titan Kevin Mawae and his wife Tracy, Covenant Reliance Producers, HCA, Mercy Ministries’ volunteers, and Nelson Mazda for their help with this event! We would also like to thank the golf committee who helped organize the tournament. The members of the golf committee included Matthew Rettick, Kevin Vozar, Kelly Harris, David Houston, and Todd Sangster.

Graduation Day

Graduations at Mercy are always a very special time of not only recognizing our girls’ hard work, but also the transformation that has taken place in their lives. Today was one of those days at the Nashville, TN home. We were able to catch up with graduate Caitlin and her family for this week’s video blog to hear how Mercy has touched their lives. Our fitness manager in Nashville also did a quick interview with another one of today’s graduates, Jordan, who shared what God has done in her life while at Mercy.
