PREFACE:The “Early Days of the Mercy Order in Omaha," was written in obedience. It lays no claim to any literary style whatever. It is simply the narration of a very few facts of the pioneer days as they came to the mind of the writer. I pray God that it will make the community more grateful for the blessings, both spiritual and temporal, that the Lord has bestowed on us.In bitter trials, in actual poverty, in misunderstandings, and in abjection of every kind, the Sisters still had confidence in God’s love and mercy, verifying the words of scripture: “He that trusts in God shall not be confounded."
