We had a great first meeting. This is a new facility started in an existing building. (It's only a few months old.) There are approx. 4-5 residents until they get state approve for more. It was very noticeable that the staff and residents love the Lord. They both brought their Bibles to the service and looked up all the scriptures. Hallelujah!

Barnsdall - some pretty amazing people. They do not hesitate to show their love for the Lord. We lifted our hands and our voices for quite a while praising the Lord. Then, we looked into the Word and saw that we have become the righteousness of God in Christ. Time for some more shouting! it was a great morning.

Another very good service this morning. This facility understands the importance of the Word. As a result, many residents are brought in. Hands were in the air, once again, as we praised the Lord. At the close several were ready to rededicate themselves to the Lord.

Last month I was not able to come to Claremore because of bad weather. When I showed up today, they were not expecting me. Boy did they scurry fast when they saw that I was there. This is an Alzheimer unit so we do a lot of singing. "Oh, how I love Jesus", "Jesus is the sweetest name I know" are just a few of the wonderful hymns we sang this morning. It's always exciting to watch them "wake up" to the Word of God. Now it's on to Nowata.

It was quit a morning in Pryor. We've got some residents that are stepping it up a notch in their singing. Wow, they do like to sing. We spent the entire time singing. Staff, family, and residents filled the room.

One of the women in the service this morning said, "We've had church!" She was right. We did have church. It was wonderful. I asked them, "Who goes to church on Monday morning?" And they said, "We do!" There was a couple who came into the service and announced they have been married for 60 years. That's something you don't see to often anymore. We are lifting up the name of Jesus everywhere we go. Jesus Is Lord!

Henryetta/ Okmulgee

The presence of God was certainly experienced this morning. We talked about our right standing in God. I asked the big question this morning. "How many here are saved?" Every hand in the room went up! So, I said, "If you have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior then you have right standing with God." There was a peace that filled the room. We began to sing again and every hand in the place went up to praise him.

We had quit a time this morning. The activities department knows this is not just another activity. This is ministry and they bring everyone in accordingly. Our thrust is: Strengthening The Saved - Saving The Lost. In these services there is something for everyone, saved and unsaved alike. Several years ago I asked the Lord to put me in situations where we can build His Kingdom. Nursing home facilities seems to be a "black hole" not many people want to enter. We are going in. Jesus Is Lord in the nursing homes.

We have moved to a new area of the facility. It is bigger and more noticeable. We had a great meeting this morning. Now, it's on to Wilburton.

I want to thank the activities directors in the last two facilities I have been in - Sallisaw and Tulsa. We had some of the largest groups and the residents were brought in and ready when I walked in. That's a lot of work. This morning was another great service. It's obvious in nursing homes there are a lot of needs. The Spirit of God and His Word can be a guide for us through each and every one of them. We raised our voices and hands to the Lord in praise and then looked into the Word. "Strengthening The Saved and Saving The Lost" has been the thrust of this ministry since the beginning. For those who are saved, I want them to be stronger than they were when they came in. For those who do not know Jesus as Lord and Savior I want to show them what Jesus did for them, how they can accept Him and then welcome them home. God is so good!

It's always wonderful to see so many people come to the services - residents, staff, and family. We are continuing the series on "who we are in Christ". We are still looking at righteousness.

"For he has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." 2 Cor. 5:21

Here it is in the NLT: "For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ."

In Christ we have been made right with God - righteousness.

To look at faces this morning was priceless. The look of hesitated delight. Could it be true? Are we really right with God? Yes, in Him we are. That's very good news.

The phrase "a church alive is worth the drive" came to mind this morning. Residents, family, and friends were in the service. We are pressing in to know Him better. "Are You Washed In The Blood Of The Lamb" and "Amazing Grace" were just a few of the songs we sang to worship Him. After the service I had several residents say how thankful they are that we are providing this service for them. I say "we" because there are many supporters who make this possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

This was one of those mornings when I was tired. I woke up tired. I certainly didn't feel like I had much to give. But, as the service began the anointing was there. It was a wonderful service. It's encouraging to know when you follow the plan of God He will be there.

Warner/Fort Gibson

It's been a wonderful day of ministry. Both facilities brought in a lot of residents. In the last month I have been much more focused on a phrase the Lord put in my heart 9 years ago - "Strengthening The Saved - Saving The Lost." I am starting to explain to everyone, at the start of the service, why I am there. I say, If you are a believer, If you have excepted Jesus as your Lord and savior, I am here to strengthen you and encourage you in the Word. If you are not a believer, I am here to explain what Jesus did for you and how you can come into the family. Then, I want to say "Welcome Home!" We are see more results! Praise The Lord!

"Light shining in darkness." That's what I kept sensing this morning. As I walked into the nursing home in Tahlequah I realized I had options how I could look at things. I could look at the darkness: sickness, disease, problems. Or, I could look at the light: health, healing, wholeness, the answer. Darkness is looking back. Light is looking forward. This morning we looked to the light - Jesus. He is the way, the truth, and the life. Everyone in the room wanted prayer for themselves plus prayer for their friends who were in their rooms because of sickness. There is enough healing power in just one verse to heal everyone on the planet. "Lay hands on the sick and they shall recover", so I did. Praise the Lord! Now, it's on to Stilwell.

This morning we had a large group. I noticed there were several who were dealing with memory issues. We do live in a world of decay. So, let's fight the good fight of faith. The Bible says in 2 Cor. 4:4, "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." Satan is the god of this world. The Good News is we don't have to live on that level. To enter this higher level is to: 1) Accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. 2) Discover the promises of God, found in the Bible. 3) Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth the promises. 4) Never quit, never stop believing!  (That's what I ministered on this morning.) After the service residents started singing the hymns and then carrying on sensible conversations. Praise the Lord!

Nursing Home Ministries Update - February 2108


Both this morning and this afternoon I have been overwhelmed by the love of God. I can see it in the eyes of the residents. As we sing and as I preach tears well up in their eyes. We are reaching to the very heart and soul of these people. The Bible says, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit. . ." Heb. 4:12. We are traveling in a 75 mile radius around the Tulsa area, ministering in 38 nursing care facilities.
