"Though others may forget...I will not forget you. See, I have engraved you in the palm of my hands." Isaiah 49:15
Reminding the elderly that God has not forgotten them.
Small acts of kindness, a simple word, touching a hand, or even just a smile mean a great deal to those who feel alone and abandoned; to those who feel they are no longer part of the world that they once lived in and contributed to. Our purpose: reaching out to the senior community in their final chapter of life and encourage them that they do indeed matter, that they are deeply loved by God, and that they are not alone nor forgotten. Many, who have rejected Him earlier in life are most receptive to God's grace in their final stages. Thus, it's a joy for the nursing home volunteer team to be God's hands and feet to the seniors in our community!
