Dear Brothers and Sisters:

 

Hello! We trust this letter finds you in good health and overjoyed in your communion with our Savior, Jesus Christ! Whether you are in the middle of a hard lesson in your walk with the Lord or in one of His famous seasons of comfort and peace, we count it a privilege to call each of you our brother or our sister and we pray God’s sustaining power for you in whatever your circumstances. What a wonder the Body of Christ is!

 

This letter goes out to Baptists, Catholics, Charismatics, Greek Orthodox, Lutherans, Methodists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, and many whom we have no clue what their denominational leaning is! We just love Jesus and we love each other as His precious children. We are reminded of one of the songs in our nursing home ministry hymn booklet, Favorite Hymns of Grace: "Blest Be the Tie That Binds." Our common bond is the relationship that we all share with our Lord, our Master, our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. The "church services" that we bring to some of the care facilities in our area are often pure reflections of the unity of Christ’s love among the children of God Almighty!

 

Speaking of Favorite Hymns of Grace, if you have seen a copy, you know they are printed in what we call "large print." We have sent out thousands of these efficient tools for ministry over the years and they have been well-received. Many of our requests are repeat orders to replace worn-out copies. We now offer a "giant print" version that is an exact reproduction of Favorite Hymns of Grace.

 

In most care centers, there is a small proportion of those who participate in "church services" who would need giant print. In our experience, so far, those residents who have very weak eyes are overjoyed to have a copy of the hymn booklet that they can read. We are honored to make these available to any of our fellow missionaries who could use them in ministry to long-term care residents. We must mention that our inventory is somewhat limited due to the increase in cost and labor that these larger copies require. But, the Lord has always provided and we are stepping out to trust Him to continue to meet the need. So, take a moment to do a mental census of your congregation and give us a call with your order. We look forward to hearing from you.

 

For those of you who are not directly involved in nursing home ministry but have the desire to help us in prayer and finances, we thank you sincerely for your vital contribution to this missionary work in long-term care. May the Lord bless you for your heart to be a blessing!

 

Love in Christ, 

Jerry and Dar

"Comforting Words of Grace, Number Two" is ready!!! We are honored and blessed to be able to announce that the second DVD in the series, "Comforting Words of Grace" is now complete and ready for distribution. (View the segments of these DVDs here.)  Using the same format as the first in the series, this hour-long video plays the instrumental and vocal renditions of nine hymns from the middle of our hymn booklet, "Favorite Hymns of Grace" while showcasing many short clips of God’s wonderful, beautiful creation. During the instrumentals, scriptures are displayed on the screen and read out loud that relate to the message in each song. We have prepared and produced this resource and make it available upon request, at no charge (as resources allow), as a tool for ministry especially geared for the elderly, the infirm and those suffering from dementia.
