S everal members from Plymouth- Sorrento Church of Apopka, Fla., are bringing joy and healing through music as they visit and minister once per month to the patients in AdventHealth Apopka.
The children in the group hand each patient a beautiful carnation. After a few songs, prayer is offered for not only the patient but their family as well, often bringing tears to their eyes.
There have been so many wonderful testimonies from the patients and nurses of what a blessing the songs are:
- One nurse requested they go sing to a patient under her care. After singing a few songs, the nurse said that she was blessed as much as her patient.
- Entering the room of a young girl, they found the mother holding her daughter’s hand. As they sang, she told them she could feel her daughter relaxing her grip.
- One patient asked that she not be discharged because she knew the singing group was going to be there the next evening, and she wanted to be there to hear them.
This ministry is to bring comfort and spiritual healing to the patients, but the group reports that it is such a blessing to each of them as well.
