Our annual Legacy Picnic to bless nursing home residents and staff was held on July 24th. We had 134 residents and 55 staff attend the festivities – with music, a picnic lunch, the limbo, “dancing” …even ice cream treats fresh off the ice cream truck!
What a joy it is to gather with Christians who love the Lord and who love each other! As we joined together in May, at our 14th annual volunteer banquet (PowerNight), we worshipped and celebrated the Lord’s goodness and faithfulness to his servants in nursing home ministry.
As we entered the community room of the memory care unit, the residents were subdued and drowsy. Some appeared troubled and worried. One lady looked up at me, her face creased with anxiety, and asked if I had seen her father. When I said, “No, I’m sorry, I haven’t seen him,” her face fell and she wanted to leave to find him. . .
