Debbie Reed has graciously agreed to take over an exciting element of Salty Sidewalks, ministering to the elderly.....our Seasoned Salt. In her first outing to see if there was an interest, an assisted living home asked for 45 salt leaks!! This is quickly getting filled by our salty participants, praise God!!! Check back often for news, pics and stories from those that are often overlooked. Seasoned through a lifetime of heartbreak and joy - our elders have so much to share if we slow down long enough to listen....help us love them today and remind them that they still matter and they are still important.
News on one Seasoned Salt Leak- that turned out to be a waterfall!
"Good afternoon, friends! I just contacted the assisted living facility, .... where my Nana resides. As some of you know (not our newest members perhaps), I made her some of my Scripture cards and bookmarks for Christmas. She loves to share Jesus to those around her. She asked me if I could make more for her to distribute. Then, she asked if I could make enough for everyone living on her floor! Well, that was a tall order, and because I am new to this, I posted a prayer request here that same day. Debbie Reed and Diane Marra both sent me such beautiful contributions. I thought with what they sent and what I made, we would have 60 salt leaks, but it looks like, we will have 70. YAY! I am so grateful to everyone, both for contributing and for praying."
and one more exciting upcoming leak:
"I just came back from my neighborhood nursing home (a block from my house), they would love us to make things to pass out to their residents! They have 43 residents in there now."
