Thursday when Dad and Mom were out for a walk, they noticed a retirement home. They went in to see if maybe we could play some music that evening for them.
It turned out that the administrator and another man that worked there attended the church where we sang the night before. After all the details were set up, we left, ran a few errands, and came back to set up.
It was a men’s only home, and they greatly enjoyed our music. Many of them were veterans, and Christopher used some stories from Grandad’s Army life to illustrate salvation to them. During America the Beautiful, it was so sweet to see many of the veterans singing along. America truly is the country that they poured their lives out for!
Our hearts were full, and we were very blessed that we were able to minister to those in that home.
â€œPure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.â€ (James 1:27)
We’re a little behind in debriefing on our week. The invitation to do a Wednesday evening service in White City had only come the week before, and we were happy to accept. We love to share at any opportunity given.
People were so friendly and kind; it was a blessing to share with the church. The pastor’s family provided white-chicken lasagna before the service. We love fellowshipping with other believers, and Oregon was no exception!
“The hope of the righteous shall be gladness…” (Proverbs 10:28).
The conference is underway, and tonight was such a blessing. The Lord brought a wonderful group of families out for it: one family even came from Spokane, and I know other families drove a distance too.
Please be in prayer with us for the sessions Saturday. We’re excited to be able to share!
Sarah for the rest
