My First Prayer Letter Ever

Dear Friends and Family,

As many of you know, for the past couple of years I have been performing spiritual concerts for the elderly in nursing homes and assisted living facilities throughout Northeast Wisconsin. My goal has been and still is to be a blessing and an encouragement to the faith of those who no longer can get to church. I bring a bit of church to them through the familiar hymns and spirituals and sharing of God’s word. I see now more than ever that what I do is not just a job but a ministry.

It is clear to me that God has called me and has given me the grace for this ministry. Jesus created me. And this is something that he created me to do. As of August 2009 I had been going it alone and was on my way to burnout, but I recently sought out some prayer and was amazed at the night and day difference in the attitude of my heart and the tone and atmosphere of the “concerts”.

I have a strong sense that God is once again at the helm, leading and blessing this venture. This is something that He wants to continue to expand and grow, and most important, to include the rest of His body in.

I need the body of Christ to support this ministry. I need prayer, not just to keep me going, but to see God move, to see God save, and to see God bring comfort and encouragement to those who need it.

So here is what I am asking: Will you pray?

In your conversations with God, will you please remember to lift up this ministry?

Please pray that God will:

  • Open doors of ministry and bring the increase as He sees fit
  • Move on people’s hearts – that they will hear Him calling them into relationship and answer that call.
  • Keep me fresh and encouraged and that God will continue to pour into me so that I will have something to give.
  • Inspire me with words of encouragement, life, and hope – the He would give me the right words in the right time for the right person.
  • Grant me favor with the nursing home staff.
  • Inspire me with new songs of ministry.
  • Provide all that is needed for all that He is calling

Recently I received back this report about how the Reflect Hymn project is being used:


Having a chance encounter with an old friend who works the night shift at our local nursing facility, I wanted to share with you her comments about your music.

She told me that a copy of your music on CD; Reflect Hymns, appeared at their nurses station, and that they had been playing and enjoying the music. However, she said the greatest benefit seemed to come when your music was played exclusively in the rooms of those patients who were experiencing their last days. She told how the staff all remarked that such a great sense of peace seemed to envelop the room and the people in attendance, that they have a policy of always playing this music for such times as this as it provides such comfort.

I thought you might want to know this, since I know you send out these CD’s as a sample of your work when booking concerts at various Nursing Homes. Even though this facility has never had you there in person, your music is being used and valued, which I just ‘happened’ to find out a few weeks ago during my ‘chance encounter’.



Thanks for listening, and thanks even more for praying.

Nursing Home Ministry Update Feb, 2011

2010 was one of the busiest years for me with a total of 368 nursing home concerts!

My favorite concert of 2010 was the very last Christmas concert I performed out in Wittenberg, WI in a dementia unit. To tell you the truth, those with Alzheimer’s and dementia are some of my favorite people to perform for. The nurse was concerned that some of their outbursts were bothering me. I told her I didn’t mind at all. Jesus loves them so much!

One of my favorite artists, Glen Hansard once said that his favorite groups of people are the really young and the really old. I would absolutely agree. It’s why I love what I do. The “elderly” are so gracious, so appreciative, and so delightful.

Nursing Home Christmas Gift Idea

Want to be a part of blessing someone in a nursing home this year? Will you help me provide provide Gospels of John to nursing home residents?

I have about 30 concerts in nursing homes this Christmas season and I would love to give each of the residents a Christmas gift of a Large Print Gospel of John. I think that people’s hearts are more open to the good news of Jesus this time of year. What an opportunity to bless them.

If you’d like to help:

<– Click on the picture or visit to order some Gospels for this ministry. Contact me for my address. Or just Donate to this ministry and we will order them:

Thank You!   Daniel & Catherine Lovett

The Lord put it on my heart to start passing out Large Print Gospels of John in the summer and so far I have distributed about 1000. The reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Many who have received them were very grateful and I have heard back already from several who say they have read them or read them every night.

Thank you to all who have given toward this ministry for making this possible! For 85 cents you can put a Large Print Gospel of John into the hands of a grateful someone who will read it and grow closer to Jesus. This is the best possible gift I can think to give someone – introducing them to Jesus through God’s own word. This will change their lives forever!

I always want to be able to provide these Large Print Gospels of John at every ministry concert that I do to everyone who would want them, but as I told my wife, at the rate I have been handing them out, we need to raise some funds! Will you help us? I believe in this ministry! So much so that I have been donating my time, money, and resources into this.

I just need some more of my brothers and sisters in Christ to catch the vision for what the Lord is doing through this ministry and lend a helping hand.

Here are a few things you could do:

  • Please pray for us!
  • Donate to our ministry:
