A couple in Washington State:
We just felt the need to write and encourage you. How important
your ministry is. The work you do is so badly needed. Too many people
are "dumped" by their families -- only to die. They have so much to
offer. Praise the Lord for your service. We appreciate so much your
A retired couple in Nebraska:
It's remarkable that your last letter was on respect for the
elderly, as I have seen much prejudice in the last two years of looking
for work. My father used to say that when he was a child growing up in
Russia, the elderly were considered the wise ones, but now in America,
the children were considered the smart ones! We are happy to know that
you are working with the elderly and other forgotten people and pray
for you to be used in your ministry.
A widow in Nebraska:
I find that when I visit my mother in the "home," that many others
need attention and someone that just cares. Several Sunday School
classes from our church give monthly programs in several rest homes in
our area. Pray with me that my life will be a real blessing to those
older people in these homes as well.
A Bible study group at a nursing home:
Thank you for taking time and caring for us. We appreciate you very much!
A recent widow:
Otto loved you all and the work you are doing.
A retired couple in Colorado:
We know God is working through you in helping the lonely ones in the
homes you visit. Getting students involved in the ministry would be so
wonderful. The family unit has really suffered. Children haven't had
the privilege of a whole family, let alone the opportunity to think and
care about elderly grandparents. Jesus is the only one who can bring
the comfort and peace to these folks, and I'm sure your compassion
comes through to those you minister to. We always enjoy hearing from
you and about your work. We include you in our missionary prayers.
A woman in Nebraska:
I had several relatives die in nursing homes. I don't think many of
them knew the Lord, but I didn't know Him either at that time. I can
certainly appreciate the value of your ministry, especially as I'm with
my parents and around older people more.
An elderly widow in Nebraska:
God bless all of you in this much needed ministry.
A couple in Nebraska:
It looks like LYN Ministries is expanding. Your brochure is very
attractive and well done. We trust the Lord will continue using you .
