We are growing at Methodist Manor. I think the word is getting out that we are very serious about the Word of God. We are thoroughly convinced that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. At the close of the service we all repeated together, "Jesus is my Lord."
I just cannot think of a higher calling than to be asked to share the Word of God with others. We had another full room this morning with receptive ears. With hands in the air and tears in their eyes they worshiped their God. What an amazing morning.
I never tire of seeing faces light up when we start to sing the hymns. This month we are looking at what it means to renew the mind to the Word of God. We are looking at 3 areas. 1. To know who you are in Christ. 2. To know the character of God. 3. To know what He has promised. There was some shoutin' going on this morning. They're getting it! We have become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
This morning we talked about "using our faith to run our race". At the end of the service a woman stood up and out of her wheel chair to give me a hug. Latter I heard she had not been out of her wheel chair and on her own for a year. Praise The Lord! She said, "I think I could run across the room."
We are definitely growing in this facility. The administrator here new me from another facility she had been working in. When she moved here she called and asked me to come. It is an honor to represent the Lord in all these facilities. We are ministering to residents, staff, and guests; anyone who is willing to listen to the Good News. We continue to: Strengthen The Saved & Save The Lost throughout eastern Oklahoma.
I am back on the road again and what a wonderful morning. Residents and staff were ready to praise the Lord. This service becomes a real witness to the rest of the facility. After the service there were many who requested prayer for a variety of things. We have a God who loves us and wants the very best for us. We are pressing in to Him!
We had new residents and new visitors this morning. I always like to see new people. One of the visitors was a pastor from the area. He came to visit a resident but had also heard about the nursing home ministry and wanted to see what it was all about. We are reaching the nation of the elderly, the nation of the homeless, and all those who find themselves in long term care facilities.
It was so good to be back in Methodist Manor. We have become family. At the close of the service there were many who asked for prayer. Mostly for their families. (We prayed together.) These are moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas who have their families on their hearts. I've always said, "As long as you are breathing God has a plan and a purpose for your life." I have found many times that residents have a heart of prayer for their families.
