How to go to mercy ministries
How I did it: Well, I have been trying to get into Mercy Ministries
since October of 2008. I all but gave up after doctors and one previous
residential treatment centre made it nearly impossible to get past
records and medical health summaries.
It took me until 8 June to finally get onto the waitlist, at which time I did 9
half-page/full-page assignments based on books they sent me every 2
weeks. I also had check-in phone calls from their intake department
every two weeks.
On Thursday (two weeks ago), I got a call from the director of the brand-spankin' new California home.
I was really sick at the time, so I waited until this last Monday (7
September) to call back, at which time she just asked some questions
and asked how I was feeling about coming to Mercy- "Do you still feel
like you would be able to challenge yourself while here, and are you
feeling ready and open to coming?" I had a feeling that she was hinting
that I would be given an admit date soon.
I was right: one of the ladies called me this Monday, left a voicemail
(I screen my phone calls if I don't recognise the number), and I called
back Tuesday afternoon. Finally, they dropped the bomb:
I will be going to Mercy Ministries in Lincoln, CA for an indefinite
period of time (6+ months) on 7 October, and my intake time is at 1.30
Lessons & tips:
- Be persistant
- Don't give up
- Read positive verses/do devotionals and studies
- Ask for help during check-in calls while on the waitlist
- Challenge yourself
