On 30 January 2016, volunteers from our church joined in a chapel service for elderly residents of the All Saints Home, a voluntary welfare organisation that provides eldercare services in Yishun.
Some 47 wheelchair-bound residents joined in the service. Our volunteers shared the gospel using the parable of the lost sheep from the Bible and also led praise and worship. Following that, three residents came forward to receive Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Hallelujah!
After the chapel service, our volunteers visited bedridden residents in their wards, singing festive songs and presenting Mandarin oranges to them to ring in the Chinese New Year. Some 80 caregivers at the home were also invited to a lunch reception where they enjoyed fellowship with our volunteers.
Elaine Pek, our volunteer who led the chapel service, said, “Mdm Lim had given me the cold shoulder when I tried to connect with her before the chapel service. So I was amazed when the pastor at the home told me later that Mdm Lim has severe difficulties hearing and speaking. Yet she clearly said ‘Amen’ at the end of the salvation prayer and everyone heard it. God touched her with His amazing love!” All glory to God!
