Life Care Center Christmas Outreach (2010)
January 31, 2011

Every Tuesday, from 3-4pm, Mrs. Jeanne and Mr. Charles Harris (the grandparents of Ben Harris) reach out to the residents of the Life Care Center in Palm Bay in the name of Christ.

They have faithfully been sharing Christ here for about five years. They and the residents would love to have you join with them on these Tuesday afternoon sing-a-longs.

One of the residents whose daughter was visiting with him that afternoon was deeply touched by the love of Christ demonstrated through the outreach and the remembrance of each of them with a special hand crafted Christmas ornaments. The daughter, through tears, thanked us for reaching out to her father and the others. What a blessing to see the kindness and compassion of Jesus Christ at work through the ministry of the Holy Spirit in and through His people.

Special thanks to:
  • Merlita Cote for organizing the nursing home outreaches
  • Keo Fred for the handcrafted ornaments
  • Mr. and Mrs. Charles and Jeanne Harris for faithfully sharing their gift of music 

Daughter and father at the outreach who received a handcrafted Christmas ornament...but more than that, they received the love of Christ through that simple offering. 

Jesus said, "Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God. And every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God." 1 John 4:7
