To Love and Serve Others

chapel-fundAmong the Spiritual Needs of Older Adults identified by Dr Harold Koenig of Duke University are: “The need for a sense of usefulness,” and “A need to love and serve others.” In the Sunday Morning Chapel Services at The Baptist Home of Bismarck, an offering is taken that is distributed to a number of community and international ministries. The Missouri Valley Habitat for Humanity organization is one of those organizations. 
Chaplain Clyde Leimberer says “To our surprise and joy, the keys to the seventeenth house built in Bismarck/ Mandan, ND have been turned over to the Brady Davis family. Mrs. Davis (Anna) is a Certified Nursing Assistant at The Baptist Home and Brady works at HIT in Mandan. This is a family of eight and they definitely needed a house. As well, both Brady and Anna work in caring professions. 
In the Sunday Morning Service, January 20, the residents of The Baptist Home presented some Housewarming gifts to the Davis family in celebration of their new home. The gifts were a special framed picture with a “Bless this House” poem and a ‘model home’ made of bags of microwave popcorn with miniature candy bars for shingles, windows and doors. This special occasion gave the residents the opportunity to see the fruits of their donations added to others and benefiting people they know. 
The residents offerings are also sponsoring a 9 year old child from Sri Lanka through World Vision, as well as contributing regularly to the Salvation Army, KNDR Christian Radio, Interfaith the Sonshine Society and Sioux Falls Seminary.
