PostHeaderIcon Young Adults Visit and Entertain Springvale Private Nursing Home

As part of building relationships with the Springvale community, the Community Impact Team organised a nice visit to the Senior Citizens at Springvale Private Nursing Home. Accompanied with three guitars, one tambourine, some origami paper and a camera, we entered the nursing home to be greeted by about forty elderly men and women-most unable to move in their special chairs and some not even able to open their eyes. We opened the morning with "One way," then followed by "How Great is Our God." April and Kathy sweetly sang "Above All" in Vietnamese and we made a joyful jingle with "Down in my heart."

After entertaining them with our voices, we broke into pairs and spent some time chatting with the old folk. I met one old fellow from Bac Lieu, south coast of Vietnam, who had six children and fourteen grandchildren. In Vietnam he owned a grocery shop until the North Vietnamese Government took over the South and he and his family fled. Although he couldn't understand any English, he didn't mind living there and didn't mind the food either. Others of us folded origami cranes and cubes to give to the seniors as gifts. Everyone enjoyed the time we spent and felt privileged to have made some new friends. We hope to make these visits a regular feature in our Church program.

Ps Phillip.
