Dear Friends of Christian Concourse, Below are a couple notes of appreciation for the nursing home ministry materials you help us distribute for free. One is from a facility staff member in Oklahoma and the other from a minister in a small town in Nevada. Please know that your support in prayers and finances are working to encourage the faith of the elderly and infirm in little groups all over the country – for the glory of King Jesus!
Dear Jerry and Dar,
What a WONDERFUL idea for our senior adults, providing an activity for them to do in all of their spare time! [Christian Adult Coloring Books] Thank you for being pro-active and not stopping the wonderful ministry that you have, providing materials for us who work in skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, etc. I work full time (at age 64) at a local facility and we’ve ordered your wonderful hymn books over the last few years. As a retired elementary music teacher (2015) I’ve loved leading our residents in “Gospel Hymns Around the Piano with M_ _ _ _” on our monthly calendar of activities. And then COVID-19 hit and we had to stop “group” activities. But that didn’t stop us! I printed out your encouraging newsletter to residents affected by COVID-19 and passed it out to our residents. I know they enjoyed hearing those uplifting words you sent directly to them! We continue to meet in one of our regular activities to sing the hymns out of your yellow “Hymns of Our Redeemer.” I’ve given them their own copy to keep since we can’t sanitize those. They hunt their copy up each time to bring to the gospel hymn sing as we gather in the hallway spreading 6 feet apart and wearing those uncomfortable masks trying to sing through them the best we can! It’s hot, uncomfortable, but we’re determined that nothing will stop us singing our praises to the Lord!
I’m so excited to have another resource from Christian Concourse to pass out to our residents! If possible, please send 25 copies of “God’s Love and Grace” coloring books ASAP! The next time that we have a hymn sing, I’d love to bless each attendee with a copy of your letter and a coloring book to take back to their rooms, having a delightful and uplifting time coloring and meditating on God’s promises!
Thank you again for what you 2 do, ministering to our precious senior adults. God bless you and continue to keep you going strong! To the glory of God!
Sincerely, M. G. – Oklahoma
Dear Dar and Jer-
The coloring books arrived today, and I was very happy with the messages of hope and courage–just what our endangered seniors need! As soon as I can I will order some colored pencils to distribute with the coloring books. Awesome good work!
Blessings+, Rev. Tina – Nevada
With Love and Gratitude,
Jerry and Dar Johnson
