Mercy’s Newest Mass Letter (From 2008, after an International scandal hit Mercy)
Recently, the following letter has been sent to Mercy Ministries Graduates. Nancy now apparently thinks that the best way to combat anti-Mercy sites is to make sure that no one can find them. This action is clearly taken so that anti-Mercy sites will not appear on search engines, but only favorable quotes from P.O.G. and Natalie Grant supporters. Nancy is now engaging in cyber-warfare. Congrats, Nancy. Unfortunately, however, since my site’s name is AGAINST BIBLICAL COUNSELING, what you are doing is unlikely to affect me or Sean. Let’s hope anyways.
TO ALL FORMER MERCY RESIDENTS!!! Thanks so much to those of you who went online and posted comments on Natalie Grant’s Blog. We need your help to continue getting the positive message about Mercy Ministries and Nancy Alcorn out there on the Internet! We wanted to let you know about another blog. Long-time friend and major supporter of Mercy, Shelley Breen, from the group Point of Grace, has posted a blog on the Point of Grace Website about Mercy Ministries and Nancy Alcorn. Check it out at http://www.pointofgrace.net/blog-detail.php?pageid=706628.
Here’s how you can help us: 1. Put a LINK on your own Blog or MySpace page to the Point of Grace Blog (http://www.pointofgrace.net/blog-detail.php?pageid=706628) and Natalie Grant’s Blog (http://www.nataliegrant.com/2008/11/06/i-love-mercy-ministries-nancy-alcorn/). Be sure to use the words Nancy Alcorn AND Mercy Ministries in the description. It won’t help us if you just include Mercy or Nancy – you need to include both Mercy Ministries and Nancy Alcorn to get the highest ratings on the search engines.
2. Copy the text from Point of Grace’s Blog and Natalie Grant’s Blog and put it on your own sites.
3. Write about Mercy Ministries and Nancy Alcorn on your own blog / MySpace pages.
4. Click on the links and read the articles. (AMOUNT OF TIME SPENT ON A SITE HELPS TOO!!!)
5. Post a comment on Natalie Grant’s Blog (http://www.nataliegrant.com/2008/11/06/i-love-mercy-ministries-nancy-alcorn/). There are currently 76 comments and it’s not too late for you to post your own comments. Again, be sure to use the words Mercy Ministries and Nancy Alcorn somewhere in your comment. Thank you for your help – we want to be a light in the darkness and make sure the positive message about Mercy Ministries is easily found for the many young women who are desperate for help.
Thanks for all you do,
