I went to see an older lady from our congregation who was facing a medical condition that could not be fixed. She was very discouraged I heard. She was in an assisted care facility. We talked long about her parents’ deep faith and the ways it was expressed. We talked quite a while about heaven and what she could look forward to, and then we prayed together.
When I left, we were both encouraged in our faith. Three days later I received the news that this older saint had stepped into the presence of the Lord. I am so thankful I was able to visit and encourage her.
