Mission Report

Grace on Wings was contacted to get Bev L. back to her home in Michigan after she had a stroke.

She is 79 years old and was active. She had moved to South Carolina one year ago to “retire to the warmer climate”. Her Granddaughter had previously relocated there and she had a new great-granddaughter. But after she woke up with effects of stroke that had happened during the night when she was asleep, she needed extensive rehabilitation. She also needed more of her family and friends to give her moral support. She was depressed and near giving up.

Nurse JoLynne and I arrived bedside and she was ready to go home. Her granddaughter and friends came to the airport to pray with us and many tears were shed. We took off to hazy skies and we talked to her about Jesus and healing.

She said needed more prayer and was happy to get back home close to her church. We talked about how glad we are to have “hope”, not just that God will take care of us in this life-but that we will have new life in Jesus in heaven.

We landed in beautiful Michigan and her daughters were there to meet us. We arrived to the nursing home/rehab and the reality of her condition really hit her again as she was placed in a room with a tiny shriveled lady lying on the bed. She began crying and her daughters tried to reassure her it was only temporary until she could get stronger. We all gathered and prayed with her. I held the hand she could still use and we all shed some tears.

We tend to see some of the toughest moments in people’s lives, I’m so glad we have our main mission to show them Christ’s love.

“Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name. Let your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in you.” Psalm 33:20-22

Thanks again for Superior Ambulance donating the ground ambulance in Michigan, and to great flying by Hal and Terry, and to great care by nurse JoLynne.
