We had quit an amazing time in Wewoka. I met a man who was new to the facility. (I wish I could show you our picture together but I'd better not.) He explained, in a very slow and determined speech, that he had been in a very serious car accident. He apparently hydroplaned on the highway, lost control of his car and flipped several times. After leaving the highway he topped 30 trees and flew from the car. He said, "My skull was cracked open like a walnut." I said, "It's a miracle you are alive." He said, "You call it a miracle. I call it a curse." He has stopped breathing 3 times but has been revived. Since then he has signed papers to not revive him again. He is in constant pain. He didn't seem to know any of the hymns we were singing. So, I asked him if he had heard about Jesus. He had heard and wanted to know more. He lost everything: health, wife, family, etc. He wanted a secure future. I shared several scripture verses with him and then he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. I had not seen him smile up till then. But then he had a big smile. He new he was secure in Christ.
I want to thank my partners for giving me the ability to be in Wewoka today. (It is 102 miles away from home.) This was one of those moments I knew I was in the right place at the right time.


This may have been our largest group to date. Staff just kept bringing in residents. At one point, I'd say, 75% - 80% of the residents had hands raised, eyes closed, and praising the Lord. This morning "we had church". We are bringing the resources of "Big Church" into smaller communities.

The Barnsdall nursing facility is like a little pocket of heaven. The residents and staff here are amazing. I think they minister to me as much as I minister to them. We talked about - "Forget Not All His Benefits." It was a very happy place this morning. Faith will always produce peace, and joy.

I get real excited about afternoons like this. We got real practical about being doers of the Word. I gave several personal examples of how God is dealing with me about specific issues, and my response. After the service several residents shared that they were inspired to act on some things God had been dealing with them about. We are to be doers of the Word and not hearers only.


As I entered the nursing home this morning, I heard a voice coming out of one of the offices. She said, "When I heard the clicking I was hoping it was you." (When I pull my speaker on their tile floor it makes a clicking noise.) There are many people who come through these doors every day and many of those people are not noticed. I understand it's not me they are excited about as much as it is the message I bring. It is a message of Faith and Hope. Today our topic was "God's Promises - God's Ways - God's Results." It is wonderful to know that God loves us and wants the very best for us. But, we must put our trust in Him and follow Him. That means following His Word. To get God's results we must follow God's ways.

We had one of our largest groups today. Both residents and staff want to know the truth of God's Word. HE IS A GOOD GOD

This week we are continuing to look at Psalms 103, "Forget not all His benefits." There are benefits being in the family of God. This is good news to everyone who will hear. This morning there were lots of smiles on the faces of the residents. It is always encouraging to hear the Good News. We prayed that God would fill us with His life-giving healing power. Then, we believed we received.

This morning the residents in Henryetta declared they love the Lord. They also love Rev. Kenneth and Lynette Hagin and Rhema Bible Church. When they heard that was my church they got extremely excited. They want everything they can get from Rhema. We're going to work on that! During the service we raised our hands to the Lord and began to declare His benefits according to Psalms 103 - "Forget not all His benefits.". Now, it's on to McAlester.

I always look forward to Brentwood. The staff and residents are excited about God. Today a resident asked her sister to come and visit at the same time I would be there. She wanted her sister to be in the service. We looked at - "Being in the vine and producing fruit" - today. We can produce fruit based on the promises of God. Or you could say, we will produce the promises of God in our lives by abiding in Him. We got happy! Praise the Lord!

This is a new nursing home for me. I think the activities director is serious about this service. The room was full. It didn't take very long to press into the presence of the Lord. There are no other churches or ministries coming to this facility. We are so blessed to be here. After I started pulling things together to leave one of the residents said, "Could you stay another hour?" I will be back. They are very hungry for the Lord.


We started out by singing several of the well known hymns. Then we sang a hymn written by Bill Gaither called, "Let's Just Praise The Lord." There is a line in the song that says, "Let's just lift our hands toward heaven and praise the Lord." Hands went up all over the room. It was wonderful to be a part of. This is an Alzheimer's facility. They certainly were paying attention. It seems when we sing the hymns they grew up on, it triggers memories they don't often think of any more. Smiles came to their faces and we truly praised the Lord!

Days in a nursing home can be very monotonous. I hear residents say, "Every day is the same. one is just like the other." I go into the nursing homes to make a difference in their lives. I want them to have an encounter with God. This morning as I entered our meeting room there was not one person in the room. (That can be discouraging.) I started the music and the staff went every-which-way to gather the residents. We ended up with a great group and an amazing time in the Lord. If we will just get into His presence and allow Him to do a work in us. He Is Amazing!

We had a wonderful time in Sallisaw. I appreciate facilities that honor the Word. I was met at the door to help me in, and the room was already filled with residents. I spoke of receiving from God. Understanding His benefits and knowing how to receive. There were many who wanted prayer after the service. We continue with the mandate to: Strengthen The Saved - Save The Lost


(The weather might change but God's Word remains the same.) We have continued ministering from Psalms 103, "Forget not all His benefits." Many grow up believing the only benefit of salvation is being born again when that is just the beginning. There is so much more. We got excited when we heard more and more testimonies which were the results of God's benefits. He does not change and His benefits are for all. At the close of the service we prayed believing God's benefits are for today and they are for us.

I started out by telling the residents I had some good news for them. I said, "The Bible is true!" They laughed and gave me a look like "tell me something I didn't know." Then I said, "The truth is, most of the world does not believe that. They do not believe the Bible is true." It's impossible to have faith in something you don't believe in. The Bible says, "Bless the Lord Oh my soul and forget not all it's benefits." We talked about the benefits of being in the family of God. Every one in the room wanted to either come into the family or know more about what they had because they were in the family. We are "Strengthening The saved - Saving The Lost"


This morning we spent a lot of time in worship. Stigler is a 1 1/2 hour drive for me. On the way down I was asking the Lord what we should do. (I always have a plan but I wanted to make sure we were doing His plan.) I have received more from the Lord when I have been in His presence than at any other time. So, this morning we entered into His presence and stayed there for a while. There are many needs in nursing care facilities and many of these residents come to these services expecting to receive something. Through prayer and worship we will receive.

The residents in this facility always seem to pull on me. In other words, on the inside, I can always tell they want more. This afternoon we went into detail about not forgetting the benefits of God. (Or, not forgetting the promises of God.) When I was a boy and heard these words, "Don't forget the garbage." That didn't just mean not to forget the garbage. It meant to not forget to take the garbage to the curb. And, not forgetting the promises means not to forget to be a doer of the promises. (Or, not to forget to be a doer of the Word.) There should always be action to the promises. I spoke for 1 1/2 hours and then just "unhooked" - I'll be back :)


We had another pretty good sized group this morning. We are focusing on Psalms 103, "forget not all His benefits". After the service, one of the residents said, "We think that because we are older, and in a nursing home, God's benefits don't work for us anymore." We are here to change that kind of thinking. I call it "stinkin' thinkin'".

Ps 103:5 says, "Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle's [strong, overcoming, soaring]! [Isa 40:31.] AMP

At your personal age and situation. Did you catch that? God wants to satisfy our mouth. In other words, He wants to complete what we say. Let's agree and speak His Words and watch God work in our lives. There were many lives changed this morning!

Wilburton is a fur peace. But, people are what makes it worth the trip. It's so important that people understand what Jesus did for them. People have a choice. But, they need good information in order to make a good choice.

I have known some of these residents for almost 8 years. I have led many to the Lord. It's like a family reunion when I get there. We even have nick names for each other. When there are troubles or rough situations we have each other. It is wonderful to be in the family of God.

They also know there are many supporters to this ministry. We call them "Life Senders". They understand I couldn't come without them. Together, we are changing lives in nursing care facilities throughout eastern Oklahoma.


This morning I was at Brookdale in Muskogee. We lifted our hands to the Lord and worshiped Him. Psalms 103 says, "Forget not all His benefits." We stopped right there and put ourselves in remembrance of God's benefits. We shared many testimonies of the goodness of God. And, the fact that He is no respecter of persons. If He will do it for one He will do it for all. Now it's on to Wilburton.

After the service started residents kept coming, and coming, and coming. The activities director is very dedicated to this service. She has brought us to the largest room in the facility and continues to fill it up. This morning I kept thinking about Psalms 103, "forget not all His benefits". So, we talked about the benefits of being in the family of God. What Jesus has done for us and what He continues to do for us. There were several rededications this morning. Praise the Lord!

Monday, August 7, 2017


What a great way to start the week! We lifted our hands and our voices to the Lord. We were residents, staff, and family. This mornings message was, "God Is A Good God!" Once I started sharing testimonies the residents had many more to share. We certainly do agree - God is good!

The Doris (Lindberg) DeNeui Missionary Fund

My Mother (Doris) will be celebrating her 100th birthday on September 22nd. She has been in the ministry ever since graduating from Bible school at age 21. Her heart has always been for the mission field.

In honor of her 100th birthday, we are starting a missionary fund called the "Doris (Lindberg) DeNeui Missionary Fund". This will be an ongoing fund. Each year we will focus on a specific female missionary and help her get established in the field with these funds. Donations can be made at any time and designated through Paul DeNeui Ministries.

We had another great meeting this morning. As I walked into the facility I could hear staff telling residents, "We're getting ready for church!" And they were. We had another large group in the dining room this morning. I'd love to show you pictures but we are holding very true to the hipaa guide lines for resident privacy. Now, it's on to Holdenville!

On my way from Eufaula to Holdenville I received a phone call from a facility I have been in for over 5 years. (We had a little communication mix-up the last time I was there. The result was no service.) It was the activities director making sure everything was okay and I was coming back. It just got me to thinking about the kind of services we provide to nursing care facilities. Above all, it needs to be the type of meeting where they want you to come back. It must be of benefit to them. Be there when you say you'll be there and be kind and appreciative that they have allowed you to come. I have heard over and over of people who say they are coming and then never show up. Or, they come and do things that scare the residents. We are to be a blessing in everything we do.

I'm looking forward to Holdenville. This is a facility not many people come to. We will bring the blessings and the goodness of God.

The Brookdale facilities are some of the best. It is the largest nursing care organization in the country. I am in 2 of their facilities and they are very, very good. This afternoons service was in one of them. When people are in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere it is much easier to minister. I had a chance to talk about my mom this afternoon. She has received and is continuing to receive God's healing power after experiencing a stroke at the age of 99. The Bible does not say we will never have any troubles as a Christian. It does say that God wants to help us through them all. This help is accessed through the promises in the Bible and by faith. Do not put your trust in the circumstances but put them in God through his promises. We have been focusing on Heb. 11:6 which says, "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." After the service, no one wanted to leave. It is so refreshing to hear the truth of God's Word.


As I looked around the room this morning my attention was focused on all the needs, just in this one room - mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Only God can do a work like that. The room was full and staff was bringing in more. As we began to sing an air of expectancy filled the room. God is not a respecter of persons but He is a respecter of faith. I asked the question, "Will God help some more than others?" The answer is yes. He will move where there is faith. Heb. 11:6 "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." We are experiencing God in a mighty way.

After we sang several of the old hymns, several of the residents wanted prayer. I am honored to pray with them and for them. We serve a God who is faithful to His Word. He is not a respecter of persons, He is a respecter of faith. We must believe.

Heb 11:6 "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." KJV

The more we love Him. The more we honor Him and serve Him the more we will see answers to prayer.

For both of these facilities, - Tahlequah this morning, and Stilwell this afternoon, - it has been 2 months since I've been there. I wrote about Tahlequah earlier. This afternoon was much the same way. It seems that phrase "Absence makes the heart grow fonder" is true. I had the largest group this afternoon than I've had in a long time. (I wondered if they thought I wasn't coming back.) The response to God's Word was wonderful. He is such a loving, good God.


One month ago I was not able to come to Tahlequah. My mom had a stroke. We traveled to Minnesota to see her instead. Her first prognoses was just "keep her comfortable with hospice." She is 99 years old. Now she is expected to be going home soon, having received 100% recovery from the Lord. We give Him all the glory!

So, it's been 2 months since I've been in Tahlequah. Some of the scuttlebutt was, "He's gone forever." The residents were not expecting me. I started the music and then went around rounding them up. They were very surprised but excited to see me. We pressed into the Lord through music and the Word. There are many residents and staff in these facilities who have not heard the Gospel, the Good News. (They may have heard something about the Bible but it was not Good News.) This morning I saw sadness turn to joy and weakness to strength. Jesus said in John 10:10 "The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]. (AMP) Now that is some Good News.
