CS Murkomen shared her story and further how he had resolved to offer his assistance.

As it turns out, Mercy used to be a saloonist before she became a gospel minister. She suffered a major setback in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Mercy was a saloonist who like many other entrepreneurs suffered a major setback in 2020 because of Covid.

"We have discussed how I can support the revival of her business. We have agreed that even though a car may be important for her ministry, it’s better to support a sustainable business that can finance her gospel ministry in the long run," Murkomen revealed.

Quoting a Bible verse, Murkomen further commended the job Mercy was doing noting that she was in the right direction.

"I congratulate Mercy for her service to God and mankind. 'How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion," Murkomen wrote.
