Shining Light to Seniors

...after 17 years of visits!

For nearly 30 years, Ken and Sharon Heldman ministered in the local nursing homes and retirement centers, leading church services, visiting room by room, holding Bible studies and blessing the elderly in their physical needs as well. Although the group meetings were uplifting, the one-on-one ministry became the focus through the years. Establishing strong relationships with the residents, they were able to effectively share the gospel as well as encourage the believers, experiencing wonderful results.

On August 31, 2006, God called Ken home.

Though the months following his homegoing were difficult for Sharon, always in the back of her mind was the plan to pick up where they had left off just as soon as life settled down. Starting in June, 2007, the ministry regrouped and has steadily rebounded. Reaching out in her new town and making contact with new facilities as well as the former ones, Sharon now continues the ministry of the uplifting concerts as well as meaningful devotional services in retirement settings and in nursing care centers.

Sensing strongly the need for faithful workers in this needy arena, Sharon will once again present training seminars for those already visiting in their local facilities and for those who would love to go, but need a little nudge.
