Muskogee

I had my days mixed up. I thought I was going to Muskogee and Tahlequah today. But no. Today was an all-day-in-Muskogee day. Fortunately, I did go to Muskogee. The activities director called and asked, "Are you coming today?" About 10 minutes late but now I'm on track. In spite of everything we did have a good service. God is gracious and really does want the best for everyone. Praise the Lord!

Muskogee/Haskell

This is a memory care unit. There are many people behind these doors who need a lot of attention and care. As we began to sing I could see a spark come back in their eyes. They began to sing without the need for words. With smiles on their faces and hands in the air we began to worship our Lord.

Barnsdall/Bartlesville

It is always exciting to see both the residents and the staff get involved in the service. There were needs this morning and thank God His Word is full of answers. The one verse that came to me was Phil. 4:19, "My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." What ever the need is, He can supply. It doesn't matter how big or how many, He can meet the need. So, receive by faith.

Warner/Tahlequah

What a wonderful service. As I looked around the room, my heart went out to everyone who was there. There was a table of 5 woman playing dominoes. They probably ranged in age from college age to retirement, singing the hymns and listening as they go about their game. Another table with an older couple. He is living in the facility and she comes to be with him multiple times a week. A gal in a geri chair who is thankful she is still alive after some very severe drug issues. The stories go on and on. But, we have come together for one reason. To press into God. To worship Him. We continue to: Strengthen The Saved & Save The Lost.

Tulsa/Bristow

It was so good to see everyone at Maplewood today. I think sometimes we forget how lonely it can be in nursing homes. They were eager to raise their hands and sing praises to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It was cold and gloomy outside but the Son was shinning on the inside.

Muskogee

This morning I realized once again how important it is to minister in nursing care facilities. Inside these walls are: residents, employees, family members, friends, and others who come in for a variety of reasons. As I minister I see all of them listening at one time or another. At the close of the service I put an emphasis on praying with them. Either for salvation, rededication, or healing. As I walked through the group, picking up the song sheets, many asked for prayer. Praise the Lord!

Broken Arrow

This morning was a new facility - Cedar Crest in Broken Arrow. We had a wonderful time. I was surprised to see so many in the meeting room for the first meeting. I have worked with this administrator before and she filled up the room. We continue to branch out and reach as many people as possible.

Strengthening The Saved & Saving The Lost

Pryor/Vinita

It was so good to be back in Pryor today. Everyone wants to be accepted. it doesn't matter where you live or what your situation is. Those who live in nursing homes also want to be accepted. They want to belong, to be a part of something. We are inviting them to be a part of the biggest and best group on earth - the family of God. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life." We continue to: Strengthen The Saved & Save The Lost.





This afternoon I was ministering On "Expectations". I was reading from 1 Sam 17:37 where David said, "moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine." When I said, "out of the paw of a lion", this woman came in, in a wheel chair, wearing this mask over her face. (She got it as a gift from her son at Christmas to help keep her face warm.) But, it sure was hilarious when she came in. She became the object lesson for the afternoon.

Muskogee/Tahlequah

There are many times when I feel so honored to be ministering in nursing care facilities. That God would ask me to go into these facilities and share the Love of His Son. What a joy. This morning I think the residents ministered to me more than I ministered to them. We looked at righteousness. It's a gift from God. We receive it when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. There were smiles all across the room as we realized that in Christ we are in right standing with God!
