Circle of Mercy in Action! Isabel Ament ’24

September 14, 2020

“Mercy is a crucial part of my life; I knew I was in the right place from my first visit. One part of the Mercy experience that spoke to me is the importance of Mercy’s Core Values. From Ministry Days to Melders, offering what you can for others is essential. The education of right from wrong as well as compassion and commitment to those in need has informed my decision making. On my first day at Mercy, a phrase I heard is now one I live by: ‘Always help someone if you are in the position to do so.’”
Isabel certainly is living the Mercy Values! Early in the summer, she happened to befriend the Sensenigs, a Mennonite family. Isabel was captivated by their infinite generosity, love, and joy. Later in the summer, a reckless driver crashed into their horse drawn carriage. Critically injured family members were taken via Mercy Flight to Strong Hospital while their horse was euthanized. The parents were unable to work their organic dairy farm due to their injuries and loss of their horse. Isabel wasted no time to arrange for car rides for the parents from their farm to visit their daughter in ICU. Additionally, she collected bikes for their children, researched a replacement horse, and helped with household and farm chores. She also started a GoFundMe page for the family. Isabel’s actions are the deepest form of living out Mercy’s Core Values; we are very proud of her!
