Dear Friends, I have had people come to me in the last few months asking me how I am able to travel and minister without receiving an offering in the nursing homes. It's obvious that within the walls of nursing care facilities we are not able to receive offerings. It is also true that none of the nursing facilities pay me anything to come. I am a "volunteer". Since this is what I do full-time, it's obvious why this question would come up. The reason I did not start this ministry when I should have is for this very same question. I asked the Lord, "How can I do this? Where will the money come from?" When I realized that it was God who was calling me to do this, I saw that it was faith in Him that would meet my needs.
Over a period of a few years, I received 3 verses from the Lord that I continually look at: Matt. 4:19, Luke 4:19, and Phil. 4:19. When these verses are read together they read like this: Follow me and I will make you fishers of men - to preach the acceptable year of the Lord, the day when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound - and my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.
I have learned through the years that finances come through people, and as I am faithful to the call of God on my life, He will speak to people. It is the law of Sowing and Reaping. As I am faithful to Him, He will be faithful to me. As people give into this ministry because God has called them to, He will also be faithful to bless them in return. I have also learned this: If I am not doing what God has called me to do, He has no obligation to meet my needs. This is good for all of us to realize – Whatever God has called you to do, do it! I have heard this for years – We are blessed to be a blessing. So this ministry is a giving and receiving ministry. "Freely ye have received, freely give" Matt. 10:8b
Many times, toward the end of a year and into the next year, we look at our charitable donations for possible changes. If you are looking for a ministry to partner with, we say, "welcome home". Together, let's watch the power and love of God do a might work in the lives of nursing home residents and staff.
Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Ann and I are thankful to each and every supporter. We pray for them daily. We call them "Life Senders". Jesus said in John 10:10, "I am come that you might have Life . . ." Together, we are sending life into nursing care facilities.
