Finally! After 14 months of social distancing, our independent living facility, Waxhaw Creek Apartments, had their first monthly dinner social with everyone invited to come at the same time! Most residents and all of the staff have been vaccinated so we’re all feeling more hopeful these days.
There was so much chatter going on between everyone that it was hard to break in and change the direction of all the participants. We played outdoor games, caught up with each other, ate and ate and even tried some Karaoke! Well, we’ll call it a “Sing-a-long” since no one volunteered to stand up, so we just sang songs together. We started with “Five Foot Two-Eyes of Blue” and ended with the hymn “It is Well with my Soul”!
Thank you for your support as we love and care for these retired missionaries who have served Wycliffe Bible Translators for decades.
