Vital Holiday Visits

I am posting this video again this year as I am struck by the reality of how difficult it is to for people to realize the vital need of nursing home ministry especially at the holiday times. Visiting and encouraging the residents is not just something extra or a nice gesture of the church. Even less is a holiday visit primarily about going home with a warm feeling. The absence of loved ones and of the care of a church family is so stark at Christmas and Thanksgiving that it cold be compared to the air some people receive through their breathing assistance. Without that correct ,ix of oxygen they receive through the device they will suffer terribly. The need for love, companionship, prayer and fellowship is constant and especially so at this time of year. If we allow Him, God will give us a portion of His great love to share. There is no better time to begin thinking of Nursing Home outreach than at Christmas. For more information on getting started in nursing home ministry you can check out our extensive list of video teaching on our Youtube channel. Be blessed and be a blessing!

I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me Matthew 25:43

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
