Hanging Out at the Nursing Home

Dear Praying Friend,

I was out with Fulton yesterday on the patio of the nursing home.  At first there was just the two of us. But not for long.  Staff kept walking by to hug on him and give him a hard time.  Fulton, per usual, loved every minute of it. 

And then who should walk up and sit down with us but the head administrator.  He spent the next 25-minutes with us as I shared Fulton’s story and what God has done in his life. The administrator was deeply moved by what he heard. 

At the end of the conversation I had a chance to talk about how awesome the staff has been with Fulton.  We talked of all the attention he gets and how he loves the hugs.  The administrator was really excited to hear what his staff was doing with Fulton.  We both agreed that love and hugs are the best medicine of all.  I’m convinced he’ll be talking to the staff about how their affection and kindness make awesome medicine.

God used Fulton yesterday.  We worked as a team telling his story and watching the powerful effects it had.  I was really proud of Fulton.  He may be broken, but, praise the Lord, he has a story to tell and it’s all to the glory God.

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! … Who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy.” —Psalm 103:1, 4

Your Friend,
