Nursing Home Ministry

Psalm 138:2,3 I will praise Your name for You have magnified Your Word and made me bold with strength in my soul.

Rev. Dianne Doonan

Bible study every Tuesday at the Fairview Nursing Home in LaGrange, IL 1:30 pm

Church Service 2nd and 4th Sunday at Westchester Health and Rehabilitation Center in Westchester, IL 1:45 pm

It began in March of 2001. I was a means of transportation for a church friend to be able to visit her aging mother at a nursing home. My love for my friend compelled me to Good works.

It was mealtime and as we sat in the common area I looked into a vast sea of faces that appeared to be so needy.   An angelic woman's eyes locked with mine and she motioned me over.  She whispered, barely audible, "please pray for me", a tear began to stream down her cheek. I said, "Do you know the Lord Jesus as your own personal Savior?" She replied, "Yes and I want to go be with Him".   I held her hands tightly and prayed with her.   I read some Psalms to her and then sang a song to everyone in the room. During our ride home, my friend told me that for the last 8 years she had been visiting her mother there, the woman I prayed with had never spoken a word.   Even before we left that day, I had the privilege and honor of leading the roommate of my friend's mom to Jesus.

I went to Pastor John and told him of these miracles and he said he had been waiting for someone to step up into nursing home ministry.  That was the birth of the thriving Spirit led time we have each and every Tuesday at 1:30 -2:30.  We bring the keyboard in and sing and praise and get hearts ready to receive the Word.  During the final 10 minutes we give an invitation to receive Christ as Savior.

We have witnessed many patients as well as workers receive new life in Christ and rejoice as we are a part of their eternal destination being secured with Jesus!   Some times we return the following week to find out that the very person to pray and receive Christ the week before had left this earth.

These places can be very sad, oppressive and dark; filled with sickness, pain and death, but we bring the life and light of Jesus in with us and we watch transformations of the new birth right before our eyes.   Come join us on Wednesday and share the good news of love and life in Jesus!
