Mission Outreach at the Nursing Home
"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." 1st Peter 1:22
Once a month we go to the Epsom Manor and do a nursing home minsitry with our friends and missionaries Dick and Diane Burley. They are missionaries through Open Air Campaigners. We so enjoy the ministry. We go and gather up the residents and bring them in for a time of fellowship, and singing and learning. It's the last Sunday of every month!! Hope to see you there. This particular month we had over 25 people from various churches that came down.
Of course all the folks are crazy about the kids. Here Jon is greeting some of the residents. They just think he's soooo cute!!
Here Britt is using the kids to teach the residents a Bible verse. This month she taught: "Cast all your anxiety on Him because he cares for you." 1st Peter 5:7
Here is Brittany and Cassie playing a flute duet. The residents sure do love the music!! "Knowing You"
Here is one of our favorite residents......Betty....she is such a joy to be around. She has something to say about everything!! Maddie and Abby were happy to have their photo taken with her....and so was Bettty!!!
Here Dick is greeting the residents...it was an all time high turnout!! Thank you to the activities director...Brenda!! She's wonderful!!!
