Fun is a temporary pleasure based on changeable external circumstances. Joy is experienced in a growing relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior and Friend.
Although the Legacy Picnic is worthwhile in itself for the fun and happiness it brings to our friends – the impact goes far beyond that wonderful day.
One resident who came to a recent picnic was so impressed that we had planned such a fun time just for residents that she wanted to spend more time with us. So she began attending the care team’s worship service at her care home! When residents know we value them as friends first, to hang out with and laugh with and enjoy, they are so much more receptive to us sharing deeper life and truth with them; life-giving truth that will make a difference for them for all eternity.
