If you have always wanted a ministry but haven’t found a niche in your church, Finding Jesus at Dover Manor will show you how to reach people who need what you have to give. It will teach you how recognize your calling and how to pray and encourage lonely people. There are thousands who qualify as “the least of these,” as Jesus put it. They are the forgotten people who live in nursing homes.
It may seem daunting to begin a ministry such as this, but you will be amazed at how much God will pave the way for you. You are bringing the cup of cold water to thirsty people. And while we do not want to visit people in nursing homes out of guilt or duty, we should let the words of Jesus urge us into action. Often, we sit, waiting for a nudge to go and do something positive.
This book can help you learn to share your gift and to bring life to people in your community.
