Another Great Reason for a Newsletter!

I write to you, fathers, because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one.
I write to you, little children, because you have known the Father. 1 John 2:13 KJV

John was an old man by the time he penned these words, and travel for him was difficult. But one thing John could still do was write; and write he did. It may have frustrated John a bit, not seeing his friends in person, but that did not stop him from delivering a message to build them up. Today I am sitting home with Covid-19 and our nursing home meetings today and tomorrow are cancelled. So far, my symptoms are just a nasty sore throat and a light fever, but this made me recall another reason why we started Sunshine Newsletter and I started to make little song videos. I am also immensely thankful for the team of people who have come around me so that we can publish this every week. Sunshine Newsletter so far, reaches 9 facilities in three different states. God has not forgotten His people who are shut behind the doors of nursing homes, assisted living facilities and memory care wards. Sometimes we may not be able to go in ourselves, but God always will show us a way through an open door, where we least expect it!

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.

    1. Thank you Cindy. Yes after 2 1/2 years, in spite of getting both shots and a booster it happened. Thanks for your prayers. My wife seems fine and can’t get tested till Friday so I am thankful that she isn’t going through this at the same time.

    1. Thanks Patty. Your post was so perfect for our people. I appreciate your willingness to contribute. I hope you like the scaled back version as I didn’t have room for the whole post. So how are those sunflowers doing?
