“The past couple of years have taken their toll on so many older people across Southwark. But Jesus has continued to be at work.

I came to know a gentleman called Brian who was living by himself. With each visit I brought along a very simple postcard – each describing a different characteristic of Jesus. These provided a good starting point to talk about the gospel. I give thanks for the joy and privilege of the Lord allowing me to share in the spiritual journey of Brian and others like him. From lonely isolation in a poorly maintained flat through hospital stays to settlement in a comfortable, caring residential home. Medically it was challenging, seeing him struggle with cataracts and increasing dementia, but through all this, seeing the Lord help him recover and grow in his childhood faith has been incredibly precious.”
