We can never thank God enough for the honor, joy, enrichment, and sense of spiritual significance that we experience from Vital Signs Ministries' “When Swing Was King” outreach into senior centers and care facilities. Yesterday's shows, for instance, were particularly well-received with people singing along, applauding, shouting out guesses as to which song came next, and telling us great stories as we visited afterward. One dear lady told Claire (through tears), “This was the most beautiful Christmas program I have ever seen!”
We also were blessed to have other friends drop in to catch a little of the “When Swing Was King” Christmas spirit: Rik & Debbie Pedersen at the Mabel Rose show in the morning and Larry & Deb Harrold at Brookestone in the afternoon. At earlier shows this month Dan & Ann Hovanec and Don Kohls have dropped in too with the Troutman family coming along to one of our last shows today. What a Christmas blessing!
