Merlyn believes that she has been called by God to help those who are hurting. In answering this call she pursued studies in Counseling Psychology and recently graduated with her Master’s degree. She has served in different ministries in her church including Children’s, Youth and Women’s ministry. From her interactions she has been able to encourage many women and point them to the source of hope, Jesus Christ.
It is her desire to “comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” (2 Corinthians 1:3- 4) She counts it a great privilege to volunteer at The Hope of Survivors and allow God to use her to assist victims of Clergy Sexual Abuse.
