Wednesday - December 1st, 2021

 And here we are, into December already.  I think with the nursing homes closed for such a long time it's taking a toll on the residents and staff.  This has been and continues to be a real challenge.  This morning I brought Christmas to the residents and staff.  There were both tears and clapping as we sang.  What a joy to be able to bring Good News to the facility.  As I was closing the service the activities director came to me and said someone had requested "the Lighthouse".  It is a favorite.  So, we closed with that.

On the way home I received a text from an activities director from another facility who informed me they were closed again.  There would be no activities for December.  And so it goes.  I will be producing a Christmas program for all the nursing homes that will be available to them through YouTube.  We are going in every way and any way we can.

 It was so good to be back in Brentwood.  We sang a lot of hymns today because we were so excited to be together again.  It was a hymn-fest.  Then, we also opened the Word to 1 Peter 2:24 and talked about healing from God's Word.  Many of us are dealing with health issues right now.  It's good to know God wants us healthy and whole.  After the service, there were several who came to me wanting prayer for loved ones.  Praise the Lord.  We continue to:

Strengthen The Saved & Save The Lost

Thursday - July 22, 2021

 

Well, I am certainly not writing in my blog as much as I used to.  It's because I am not traveling as much as I used to.  Yesterday was one of those exceptions.  I spent the day in Muskogee, Ok, and had 2 wonderful services.  I say wonderful because the residents were so thrilled to have someone come and see them.  It does not happen much anymore and that is sad.  If you have the opportunity to visit someone in a nursing care facility and that facility is open please go.  You will be a major blessing.

As a result of nursing care facilities not being open to the public, we have become very effective with our online nursing care services.  As I was talking with residents after yesterday's services; they were very interested in taking my card which explains how to connect with the online services.

We will be live again today.  Service times are Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 2 pm CST

It is a real blessing to get back into these nursing care facilities.  The staff and residents appreciate, more than ever before, ministry coming in to encourage and strengthen everyone by the Word of God.  Today, everyone was smiling and waving but I think most came from the staff.  Hands were raised as we gave thanks to God for His wonderful love to us.

Wednesday - May 18, 2021

This morning after the service a resident came to me and said, "Look around the room.  You see a room full of Christians.  We don't need a lot of hellfire and brimstone.  We need to be encouraged.  You've done that with your music and encouraging words.  We've been locked up for months.  Our spirits have been lifted this morning.  When are you coming back?"

What a wonderful morning.  As nursing care facilities open, this is what I'm finding; People who want to be encouraged in the Word.

Now it's time for lunch and on to this afternoon's service.  God is so good!
