JUNE/JULY 2012 SPRINGFIELD MINISTRY REPORT
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth! The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Psalm 46:10-11
Thank you, Thank you Jesus for the peace of knowing you are always with us and you promise to never ever leave us. What an awesome God we serve. There is no other name like the name of Jesus, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name; That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father". Philippians 2:9-11
What a joy and a privilege to tell others about Jesus! PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW! We have received so many Blessings in the Nursing Home Ministry the past few months. The residents look so forward to our coming and many of their relatives are now coming to the homes to attend our services. Last month at Villa East, we had almost 50 in attendance. We were having about 8 to 10 on Saturday mornings at Regency and the past 3 months, attendance has increased to 25 to 30. Villa West has always had great attendance and great participation. This home is an "assisted living" and they are more active and they love to sing. They really get involved with us. The residents at the Mary Bryant House of the Blind are very active as well. We go there every 3 to 4 months because they can get out and go to church. One of the residents actually plays the piano at a church he belongs to, so they do not need us as often.

MARY BRYANT HOME FOR THE BLIND
|SPRINGFIELD SUPPORTIVE LIVING|
Mary is one of my favorites, she just celebrated her 99th birthday and she always has a big smile on her face and she loves the singing. She is so sweet and pleasant to be around.
Another resident had to tell me her life story on Sunday. She was raised in the Assembly of God Church and loves gospel music. She is in her 90's and she talks about her mom a lot and how she would play piano in church and how much she loved the Lord. In her younger days, she waited on tables for over 60 years at a big restaurant in
and one of her favorite customers was Jimmy Swaggart. She is so proud of her friendship with
Praying for salvation for another resident who is not sure she's going to Heaven. Please pray with us for these residents. We really want to lead them to Jesus that is our heartbeat.

MARY BRYANT HOME FOR THE BLIND
Please pray for the Ministry and for all the Team as they go into various homes to share the gospel. We appreciate so very much, all our prayer warriors; you are a very important part of the Ministry.
This is not my Ministry, its God's and my hearts desire is to see people come to a saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and to be used of God to be a Blessing to others.
Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it.
