It was so good to see residents again. There were more residents coming into the room than normal. It's obvious that the shutdown is affecting more and more people. Loneliness is becoming a huge issue. They are starving for fellowship. I am ministering from the outside of the building and they are inside with an open door between us. I understand they need to be protected. I just hope the solution is not worse than the problem. We sang the familiar Christmas carols for close to an hour. They were so happy again. It was a joy to be together.
