It's always exciting to go into an area the Lord has been preparing ahead of time. As I entered this facility, in Sapulpa, and spoke to the activities director, I heard her say; they have only been open for a few months. And, she has been praying for someone to come to provide a church service for the residents. It was a perfect fit. I will be starting in this new facility next month. This facility is a Senior Mental Health unit. This is the second mental health unit I'm in. We are expanding!

It's so good to see family of residents come to visit at the same time we are having service. (They sit together through the service and then visit afterwards.) What a great way to care for family. Today we are talking about covenant in relation to the family of God. It is so comforting to know that through Christ we can know that we have eternal life - 1 John 5:13.

It's always a thrill for me to see residents get excited about the Bible, get excited about Jesus. This morning that's what happened in Barnsdall. We lifted our hands to the Lord and then looked at more verses that show us who we are in Christ. Now it's on to a brand new work in Fairfax.

As I was ministering this morning, looking out over the residents, I realized we have an army of prayer warriors in these nursing homes we've never tapped in to. Many of them are alone and feel they have nothing to offer. That's really not true. What if the "Church" tapped into this army of prayer warriors? What if the local churches used residents in their local nursing homes to become a part of the great end-time harvest? What if we trained "Prayer Technicians" to pray in agreement with the local church and bring in the end-time harvest? This thought really got me excited!

We had new people this morning. It's always exciting to see new people come in. We lifted our hands and hearts to the Lord this morning. We are looking at "In Him" scriptures. We are discovering: who we are, what we have, and what we can do, in Christ. It doesn't matter if you are in or out of a nursing home this is exciting information. Now it's on to Okmulgee.

It really is a wonderful thing to praise the Lord because, God inhabits the praises of His people. We raised our hands and our voices this morning. Matter of fact, the residents were so loud I had to turn up the music even louder so we could hear it. Then, we looked into the Word of God and saw what God had to say about "Following Him". It requires faith. If the faith walk was easy, everyone would be doing it. The more we renew our mind to God's Word the easier it becomes. Now, it's on to McAlester.

This is my look when I'm excited about sharing the Good News.

We had a great service this morning. There was a woman who continued to shout, "Hallelujah", and "Praise the Lord", all the way through the service. The staff said she very seldom says anything. We found out her dad was a pastor. She had grown up in the church. I shared some truths about who we are in Christ. It revived and strengthened some things that were already in her heart. Ah yes, we are: Strengthening The Saved - Saving The Lost.

I find it fascinating to watch the hand of God. He is so good! This morning there was a woman who continued to call out for help. She seemed to be distressed. When I tried talking with her she didn't make sense. I could also tell, by others, that her actions were probably normal for her. We started singing - "There Is Power In The Blood". By the end of the song she had a smile on her face and wanted to sing more. At the close of the service we carried on a conversation and she seemed just as normal as anyone else. Now she loves Jesus!

We had an amazing afternoon service. There were 5 woman from a local Assemble Church who had come to visit a resident. The 5 woman and the resident were in the room when we started to sing. I was not expecting the harmonies I heard. They were really good. We sang extra because they were there. The entire facility was blessed. It was a very special service.

We had a great service this morning. It seems that I should be writing about several things. But, I've been sitting here in front of my computer for an hour with nothing to say. I feel worn. Then I realized this afternoon will be my 10th service for the week and having driven 784 miles. I'm not complaining. I love what I do. However, following the plan of God does require discipline. I think I've been staying up to late this week. It's time to refocus and set priority's again. Back to this morning. We raised our hands to the Lord and gave Him praise. I sang, "He Touched Me" and then a resident raised her hand and asked if I would sing "The Lighthouse". Many residents, in nursing care facilities throughout the nation, are starving for a touch from God. That's why I go. I continue to hear the Lord say, "Go!". Yes Lord, we continue to: Strengthen The Saved - Save The Lost.

I am so thankful the Lord called me into the nursing home ministry. There are many residents in nursing care facilities who need ministry and so few ministers going. In the next few years there will be many more residents. This morning there was something very special about our meeting. We were very happy to see each other. It's good to know you're in the family of God. This month we have started a series called, "Who We Are In Christ." This will explain in detail: who we are, what we have, and what we can do, in Christ. I think they got just as excited about hearing it as I was in teaching it. We continue to: Strengthen The Saved - Save The Lost.

Warner/Fort Gibson

Warner has the ability to care for a wide variety of needs. As I looked over the group this morning I realized the diversity. I am so thankful we have a God who meets the needs of everyone. This morning we talked about Redemption. We have been Redeemed from the Curse. And, we have been Redeemed to the Blessing. I laid hands on everyone in the room. God is sooo Gooooood!

The flu is still hitting the nursing homes pretty hard. The number of residents was low this morning. But, those of us who were together had a great time. Everyone asked for prayer. I took a turn in my message and ministered something I heard my pastor say a few months back. (It really stuck with me.) These are the two verses. Pastor Hagin said, If all you had were these two verses you could live in victor.

Hebrews 13:5 “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

Now that's shoutin' ground right there!

Last month we were out of town for the Holidays. This month, today, I was not on the activities calendar. When the staff saw me coming in they scurried to gather the residents. We had a wonderful time. There were some residents who were very troubled with some personal things that had happened in their lives. I was able to talk with them before the service and help them with the Word. Then, they chose to stay for the service and praise the Lord. God is so good to have us in the right place at the right time. Now it's on to Chandler.

I felt like the Pied Piper this morning. The activities director was in a meeting and there was no one in the room. I started the music, started singing, and here they came. Then the meeting was over and the director started wheeling more people in. We had a great group. (If you know that God has called you to do something don't ever quit. He will see you through.) There were many here who were so thankful we had the service. Hands were raised and we praised the Lord!

It's good to have time off - to rest, relax, and refresh. Now It's time get back on the road and minister the Good News. We had a wonderful time this morning in Muskogee. There are many residents here who would not have a church or fellowship unless someone came in on a regular basis. (Many of them cannot get out.) We are so honored to be here. Jesus Is Lord!

What an amazing group of people. They sure do love the Lord! As we were singing the first hymn residents just kept coming in. (This is an assisted living facility.) I stopped and told them, "I would just love to run out of song sheets." And we just about did. Family members continue to come and visit at the same time I come for the service. They plan it that way and sit with their family. It's a great time in the Lord.
