Retirement Center Testimony

Bible Study with the Elderly

Thank you Lord for bringing the testimony of the retirement center back into remembrance.

One day, I felt the Spirit moving me into action to volunteer with the elderly, however the Lord led. I made up some fliers and I had a real hard time getting out there and talking with individuals. Eventually, I was strengthened by His might into action. The first retirement center, nothing materialized and the door closed. Praise God that I did not allow that to deter me. I knew the Spirit was moving. Now, I find out that it was because of prayer from one of the ladies at a local retirement center. Here is His testimony –

After I left the first retirement center, a passing thought of “What are you doing out here?” came through the mind. In hindsight, I see now it was the enemy trying to deter me from being used by God to answer a sister’s prayer. At any rate, I decided to stop at an assisted living retirement center down the road.

At the end of the discussion with the activities director, we agreed for me to come in and do a bible study with the elderly. Later on, she revealed to me what happened with her prayers, and me showing up. She said that her son use to do the bible study at this retirement center, but he is a Pastor and could not do it any longer. She said they were praying for a replacement, and I came walking in.

The unction from the Spirit, stemming from this lady’s prayers, is so cool. I pray to be used by God like this more often.

Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

God bless you and yours,
