Free Hymns Albums!

reflect_amazing_grace_cover_220x200We are now offering both of our Hymns albums as free downloads (SEE BELOW), for you to enjoy! These albums contain many of the most well loved Hymns of the faith, like Amazing Grace, In the Garden, and Old Rugged Cross, etc…

I once walked into a facility and found residents hovering over the CD players singing along to our CD, Reflect Hymn. The nurse told me that they do this every day and, “Do you have another album?” (They had to listen to it every day too!) I was glad to report that I did: “Reflect Amazing Grace”.

Highlights of our album Reflect Amazing Grace areof course, Amazing Grace, featuring Catherine on her piano accompanied by strings and an all new Hallelujah chorus (watch the video). Other tracks that stand out are the opening track, a Sufjan Stevens inspired Fairest Lord Jesus. You might just find yourself humming the guitar solo of How Firm a foundation for awhile… as I did. Before the Throne of God Above opens with a lush open “C” tuned guitar and also features tasteful drums… I could mention something interesting about all the tracks and our hope is that you’ll take the time to listen to them all!

Our version of I Surrender All was inspired by a song by the band The Civil Wars called Poison and Wine. It has been so freeing for me to see what a privilege it is that we “get to” surrender to love. Love is who God is! Discard all former misconceptions. He is a loving heavenly Papa who accepts you and loves you unconditionally just as you are! His grace is transforming. It is a life changing experience to realize just how very loved you are. This love, and His grace (his smile and loving embrace) is the most amazing thing you could ever experience. This is who we “get to” surrender and give our all to… Jesus. Yeshua (whose name means “I AM Salvation”). God in the flesh who went to the cross for you and me because he loves us that much! Receive his kindness toward you in this very moment.

Our hope and prayer is that you are blessed by these collection of songs and then find someone to share this gift of music with!

Our ultimate goal in sharing this is to provide a free resource for those who serve residents in Nursing Homes and Hospice Care. We want to bring smiles and encouragement to people in nursing homes and also to bring comfort to those in their last moments in hospice care. (See testimonies below)

TESTIMONIES:

Since its release, I have been sending out the “Reflect Hymn” CD to various Nursing home facilities throughout Northeast Wisconsin and recently I received back this report about how the Reflect Hymn project is being used:

“Daniel, 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 Hymn, 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’.

Blessings, Cindie”

I was so moved when I received this report. What an awesome blessing! I would love to see every nursing home throughout Northeast Wisconsin to receive a Reflect Hymn album for their use for the above mentioned purpose, or to use for a church service or bible study, or even just for music therapy. If this is something that you would also like to see happen please donate toward this ministry.

 

 

 

Here is another letter I received:

Hi Daniel…

Recently you came to Shady Lane Nursing Home here in Manitowoc to entertain the residents and I was in attendance with my mother who was a resident there at the time. She just passed away this past Thursday March 25th. I bought one of your CDs and played it for her every night when she was drifting off to sleep. This past week when she had slipped into a deep sleep on comfort care at Shady Lane I played it in her room….it was very soothing. I think the staff at Shady Lane enjoyed it as well. I plan to give these CDs away as a result. If it is alright with you I would like to play it next to her coffin at the funeral.

Thank you.

A Recent Encounter (2015):

I was about to go in and entertain at a nursing home when a lady stopped me and asked, “I am a hospice nurse and I have your Reflect Hymn CD. I use it so often that it doesn’t play anymore. Do you have another one with you?”

I was able to provide her the Reflect Hymn album and also our latest Hymn project Reflect, Amazing Grace. She was on her way to someone who was passing away that very day.

Thank you for listening,

Daniel Lovett

Nursing Home Ministry (The Early Days)

Wow. I am amazed! The Lord has been so good to me. I have now been serving nursing homes with “spiritually enriching entertainment” for eight years now. I wanted to share the story about how that all began for me in late November 2006.

Early summer of 2006 the Lord distinctly told me, “Get ready”. Get ready for what? I asked. I had no idea. I was working as a framing carpenter at the time, and recovering from a very serious depression (despair is a more accurate word) that had taken me down for seven long years. I had also been continuing to lead worship with my wife in church on a fairly regular basis.

By the end of August my body was telling me it’s time to move on from construction. My wrists throbbed in pain every night. So I got a delivery job with Dunham express.

While out on my deliveries, some of our stops included Nursing homes. Every time I stepped into one I had a very strong impression that I would like to come share music with these people. My heart went out to them. Fast forward to November and my job was now ending. I had also just met Eddie Bieber who for time had entertained at nursing homes for a living. Intriguing… So I mustered up my courage and started cold calling facilities to sell my services as an entertainer.

I knew I was going to specialize in Gospel music. The problem was that I knew five or less Gospel songs that would relate to this audience and I needed to fill up an hour with relevant music. (Speaking their language musically is VERY important. If you play a song that you happen like and no one claps and then one lady hesitantly says, “That was… interesting”, it means that song did not go over well.) I went to work learning the Hymns of the faith.

I started to get a few bookings a week and honestly I didn’t want any more than that at the time. I knew I wasn’t very good yet and would soon “work myself out of a job” if I played more nursing homes and my name became attached to poor performances. I continued to improve musically and vocally and maintained some part time work over the next couple years.

Once I got a handle on what were some of the most loved hymns of those in this area, (and developed a few favorites myself), I went to work recording a Hymns album to leave for the residents.

Reflect Hymn CD (click on the CD cover to listen to this album)

I am pleased to say that our Reflect Hymn album is now in most every nursing Home and Assisted living facility throughout Northeast Wisconsin! It is still being used to comfort the dying, as a prelude to Bible studies and services, and sometimes as dinner time music. It blesses me so much to hear how God has been using this album especially when I walk into a facility and a lady with dementia is humming along to it as she sits next to the CD player playing our album. I was told she does this every day by a nurse, who also asks me if I have a new music? Please?!?!

I am so pleased to say that we now do!

I love our new hymns project which we entitled “Reflect, Amazing Grace”. This album features mainly my wife’s vocal talents and her unique piano arrangement of the most beloved and well known hymn of all time, Amazing Grace:

Our goal now is to get this album into every nursing home in Northeast Wisconsin. We are slowly but surely doing just that. If you’d like to help fund this operation you can donate to our ministry at our website: www.reflectworship.com

Here our my journal entries from that first month of Nursing Home ministry which I was pleased to find the other day:

1/4/07

I was at the Fransiscan Nursing Home today and was so blown away by what happened there. There was this woman in the back with her aged mother, and her mother was so touched by the Hymns that she was moved to tears, and then the daughter was moved to tears by her mom and then I was nearly moved to tears watching them both. It is people like that who are so moved and blessed by the music and simple truths in these Hymns that guide me to an appreciation for them myself. I had once again the most profound sense that this is what I’m meant to do. I love it so much…

It makes me think that all those years singing in church, learning new songs, honing my craft was for this. This is the real deal… the other was a biding of time till now.

Thought for the day:

“My being good does not validate God. He remains unchanged. Yet he created us… “

12-20-06

I am in a bit of a spiritual quandary recently. I am content. I am at peace. I am trusting God’s grace when there is most reason not to. This is an entirely new experience for me and quite frankly, I am not sure how I should feel about it.

For as long as I can remember, I never measured up and I was constantly depressed about it and in a funk… but now it doesn’t even matter. I am still a big time loser/sinner (I just spent the last week avoiding God because of a foolish rebellious thing I had chosen to do) but now I don’t have to measure up or feel accepted based on what I do… I feel his delight because of simply who he is. Love.

I have been spending time recently in Christian inspiration section at Barnes and Noble. I order a large coffee and just sit there and try not to cry as waves of God’s blessing soothe and comfort my soul. I don’t even quite know why I have been selected to be blessed like this. It hasn’t always been this way.

The other day I was a Nursing home doing a Christmas concert and one of the ladies in the back shouted out, “I love you!” I could hardly restrain the emotion that came to me when she said it and I had difficulty getting through the next song. It was as if God were whispering the words in my ear and I was melting.

After that concert as I sat in a coffee shop reading Donald Miller’s “Blue Like Jazz” I wrote this poem:

You stir my soul
Deep with the knowing,
The feeling of your love…
I am moved in waves of reassurance,
Of your kind look,
Of your notice of me…
Broken I let loose
The tightness in my chest,
The tears come,
Tears of joy,
And not of sorrow;
For I have found you,
And the sweetness of your comfort
thank you.

(If you’d like t listen to the song I recorded of this poem, click here: https://reflectworship.bandcamp.com/album/reflect-b-sides-the-still-waters-of-gods-love)

But as nice as this is, I can’t stop here or leave it at that. I don’t know if you remember one of the final scenes in “The Never-ending Story”, when the Indian boy is faced with this challenge to make it through this gate. Many brave warriors and knights have tried and failed… they were killed by these sentry guards with laser eyes or something… it’s a vague memory by now, having seen it so many years ago, and I am not going to go to all the trouble to see it again just to be accurate with this illustration.

My point is this: what did they need to pass the guards and get thru this gate?
Faith. Confidence.

I am beginning to realize the great predicament all men are in… we are at God’s mercy, yet so many of us misunderstand him. We think that if we all band together we can somehow outwit him or something… as if to say, “well we are all doing these things worthy of death and it’s now socially acceptable. You won’t condemn us all? Will You?”

This is not coming out right … this is the great misunderstanding. Can you imagine Love wanting to Judge you? Condemn you? I can only imagine Love, well, loving you. Yet love won’t let criminals run rampant. How do I convey what I see in my minds eye?

We are going to die. We will face our Maker at that time. Are you afraid or will you gladly welcome it? I don’t know how to answer that one myself. You see, based on everything I grew up around I would say I am pretty much screwed. But my heart tells me otherwise. I have a peace that passes all understanding. I, who am not even a good Christian, who am selfish and irreverent and given to addictions of the flesh, who drinks a beer while he reads his bible (on the rare occasions that I do read my bible – at least at the time of this writing) have peace. A peace that makes no sense because I didn’t earn it. Now that’s not to say I should just be content in my sinful state, by all means I should “improve” and be obedient and overcome the misunderstandings I have of my Maker.

The thing is, if you read my biography – the real and honest gut-wrenching one, not the cleaned up and sanitized one that might actually sell (hey, my mom might buy one), you wouldn’t like me. You couldn’t possibly. There isn’t anything attractive in a sinful man, but as a lady (who had died of polio but was sent back by God cause it wasn’t her time) told me, “Jesus is the most handsomest man I have ever met, the kindest, most gentle, and wonderful…” and I can’t remember any more of the adjectives that she attached to her description of him.

But let’s face it. He is who is really what is truly most attractive about any one of us. His activity in our lives. His Spirit at work in us.

(Incidentally, this is why our band name is “Reflect”. It comes from a verse that ends like this: “…that we might be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord, and as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we will reflect his glory even more.” (2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT*)

12-21-06

I walked into a nursing home today to play a Christmas concert as the coroner was wheeling a not so empty body bag out the door. I was going to say a person in a body bag but that isn’t quite true anymore. I wondered as I played and tried to bring some Christmas cheer if it was weighing on anyone’s mind.

At one time I was going to collect wise sayings from my visits to nursing homes and write a book with the title, “wisdom from death’s door”. That is really just for shock value. I am not really that heartless… which I will of course explain in the first few pages of the book. But aren’t we all really at deaths door? Just a heartbeat and a breath away from death… it’s amazing that any of us are alive. I am so happy. Do you know why?

Cause I’m getting to know God and learning to trust him and I realize that life and death are in his hands so death really isn’t that big of a deal… of course this isn’t probably what I would say to someone grieving a lost loved one, but it has some merit.

I had this weird dream that I was fly-fishing and I caught a big rainbow trout, only it had a girls head attached to it. As I reeled it in this man standing next to me said, “Oh, looks like you’ve caught my daughter”. I didn’t know how to feel about this, and I’m not one to waste good fish meat so I was putting the fish in a bucket of water and debating about whether to put this man’s daughter out of her misery with a knife, so she wouldn’t suffer. It kind of sheds new light on that passage where Jesus said to Peter the fisherman, from now on you will catch men…. Or not.

How do you think a person might feel upon arriving to a nursing home and being assigned a room where God knows how many have died before?

‘They took me to that place they said they never would. My own flesh and blood. A burden. Old. Neglected. They have their own lives now, their own kids. Don’t they know that one day they will be me? How will their children care for them?

I arrived to the room assigned for me. Like a cheep hotel or hospital room. How many have died here I wonder.

The room smells. This is not my home…’

It was neat to come across this old journal entry and see what God has done. If you’d like to support our ministry, buy a CD, download our music or donate at our website: www.reflectworship.com

Nursing Home Ministry Fundraiser

After four years of nursing home ministry we are finally doing our first official fundraiser to bless the area nursing homes. Our goal is to bless 85 new nursing homes in six counties near Milwaukee with a copy of our Reflect Hymn album.

Over the past two years I have mailed out a copy of this CD to many of the area nursing homes and assisted living facilities. This album has been very well received by the residents in the nursing homes and they are often used for music therapy, played during the dinner hour, for memorial services and most amazing of all, to comfort those passing away.

About the Reflect Hymn CD

This album has become a favorite among elderly residents. It is a peaceful acoustic collection of the most loved classic hymns such as Amazing Grace, What a Friend, In the Garden, and Rock of Ages. (click here to listen)

Our goal is to raise $680 to fund the mailing of the CD to these 85 facilities ($5 each) and also to order a supply of 300 large print Gospels of John (comes to $0.85 each after shipping) to distribute to residents who would want one. Any additional funds raised will go towards a new Hymns project that is in the works for our continued ministry to the elderly in nursing homes.

If you would like to help, please donate!

Or, you may also send a check to:

Daniel & Catherine Lovett
1901 N. Nicholas St.
Appleton WI 54914

(If you would like to send a CD to a nursing home near you or you know someone in a nursing home that you would specifically like to send a CD, simply donate and let us know where or to whom you would like it sent.)

THANKS!!!

A Million Angels

A Nursing Home Story

Judy raised her hands and hummed along to most of the songs I played that day.  I noticed tears coming down her face as I was finishing my concert with the song, “How Great Thou Art”. She was so blessed by many of the classic Hymns of the faith that when we finished, she just started singing a song herself.

She sang, “…a million angels could not express, the gratitude of all you’ve done for me…” It was beautiful. It is such a privilege to share so many moments like these with residents in nursing homes on a daily basis.

Sponsor a Concert

My cousin Meg’s husband’s good friend’s sister is in a nursing home in Elroy, WI.  They were concerned for her because her liver is failing her. It looks as though she doesn’t have long to live. So Meg sponsored a concert to send me to Elroy to encourage and bless this special person with some glorious Gospel music.


I googled the facility and figured out how long it would take me. I printed out the directions and was on my way at near 6:30 in the morning for the 2-1/2 hr drive. (By the way, have you ever noticed that in Wisconsin when you ask someone how far someplace is, they answer by giving you a time. Such as: “How far is Green Bay? ‘Bout 26 minutes.” Is this only a Wisconsin thing?)


So I finally get out in the general vacinity and after some head scratching (which really helps me think) I finally find the road that google told me to turn on. And so for the next 20 minutes or so, I wander around these winding narrow roads through farm country. I finally call my wife who finally answers the phone and I asked her to google my location. Sure enough she tells me that yes indeed, google wants me to sing to the cows in the pasture.



This totally reminded me of a story I once heard about where a gps had told someone to turn and drive right into a lake!


I finally talked to someone at the facility and got headed in the right direction. I was 15 minutes late at this point.


When I got there, it was packed! I would be singing to a full house, and right there in the front row was the woman I came to see… with a smile on her face. I made her feel special and sang a homerun concert that day for her and the folks.


So here is the moral of the story. Do you have a loved one in a nursing home? Sponsor a concert and tell me what facility you want me to play at!


Do you not have a loved one in a nursing home? Sponsor a concert.  I will find a nursing home to donate my time and bless some special someones with the message of Christ’s love and his glorious good news!


Thanks for listening,


Daniel Lovett


ps. Sponsor a concert!

Not that song! a ministry story

“Not that Song”

I was playing a show the other day at an assisted living place in Stevens Point and just as I had started playing “Somewhere over the Rainbow”, I sensed the Lord tell me, “not this song now, play something else.” “But I’ve already started it” I thought. “Just stop and play another.” “Ok.”

So I did. I just stopped playing and made some excuse. Then I started playing a song I wrote based out of Psalm 139 and started talking about the Lord and his love for us.

I told them, “Did you know that in Psalm 139 it says that the Lord thinks about us more than there is sand on the seashore? He sure must love us a great deal to think so much of us.”

As I was singing the chorus, “And when I think of your great love, it moves me, it moves me…” In walks a group of kids. They had come to spend some time with the folks there that day. After the song I started sharing about a song that had been on my heart all week. In fact I had been singing as I woke that morning. “If there’s such thing as too beautiful, if there’s such thing as too wonderful, if there’s such thing as too marvelous, Jesus it’s you, Jesus it’s you!”

This idea really excites and encourages me – that Jesus is so far more beautiful, wonderful and marvelous than we could possibly imagine, there is so much more to Jesus – he is our endless treasure. There is a journey to better and brighter things as we grow in love with him and deeper in relationship to God.

So I was sharing some of these thoughts and all the while, these kids were in the back listening. Then I realized that this was why Jesus had me stop playing “Somewhere over the Rainbow” to a song and message that would bring life. Pretty awesome!

I found out later that my wife had been praying for me earlier that day that God would lead me song by song.

thanks for listening,

Daniel

A few of my favorite ministry stories

Well Get On With It!

One of my favorite stories is when I had my very first heckler. As I was playing at a facility in Green Bay one very loud lady up in the front would yell out whenever there was a few seconds break between songs, “well, get on with it!” And then when we sang Amazing Grace, she sang out real loud, ” Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like you…” Lovely woman.

It was at that very same facility, perhaps that very same concert that a man decided to join in playing his harmonica. The only problem was that his harmonica was in the key of “C” and none of my songs were. Once I asked him what key his harmonica was in, I changed a few songs to that key so that he could play along.

Did She Just Say That?

This is a story about a lady who was nicknamed “Corky”. She was suffering from some debilitating illness that affected her mind and her ability to communicate. After the concert I went up to her to shake her hand and she said to me, “Thank you very much for coming, I really appreciated it.”

The manager of the place leaned out of his nearby office and asked, “did she just say that?” His surprise told me that this was very unusual for her to make a cohesive sentence. Was this the healing effect of music or something more?

George

When I was first getting started doing concerts there was a particular place I would frequent here in Appleton where I met a man named George. In fact, it was at that very same facility where I had played for “Corky” in the above story. George loved to read and always had a book in his hand every time I was there. We would talk about whatever book he was reading or have conversations about his past.

He told me that he had had a hard life – haunted with the pain of his divorce. He was a teacher from an area near where I had grown up. He taught in a little town in Idaho called Priest River. While growing up, my family and I would drive through Priest River every year as we went up to Priest Lake and the surrounding mountains to pick huckleberries. He said that his passion in life was not in teaching a larger group but more so when he was able to mentor a student and to really connect. And he mentioned that he saw the same enjoyment and passion in what I was doing. George passed away on Fathers Day. When I learned of his death, I remarked to God, “well, he is in your hands now.” But then I realized that he always had been.

He’s got the little bitty baby!

This next story is one that really touched my heart recently. I was playing a concert out in Wild Rose and had played the song, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”. A few songs later I see a man struggle out of his wheelchair in the back of the room and hobble up to where I was. With tears in his eyes he blurts out, obviously very distraught, “He’s got the little bitty baby in his hands! He’s got the little bitty baby in his hands! ”

When I had done that song earlier, I had not sung that verse of that song, probably to shorten it up a bit. But he wanted to sing it. So he stood up there with me and we sang it together. It was such a beautiful moment.

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:

“Daniel,

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’.

Blessings,

Cindie”

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 Biblica.com 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:
