Mercer has had the amazing experience of working with nationals from around the world. Prior to practicing immigration law, he acted as a Regional Director for Teen Mania Ministries, an international mission’s organization. He was responsible for South America and Asia teams in addition to directing several projects throughout Africa. During those years he spent time overseeing projects in such countries as Ghana, Botswana, South Africa, Lebanon, Malaysia, Peru, Panama, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic and numerous others.
