Please explain the project as you make your cards and pray for the person/people who will receive them. The seniors we will be meeting are like "grandparents." They are older and some of them are sick. They might not have young children to come to visit them very often and seeing your son or daughter will really cheer them up and brighten their day. It is a small way we can show God's love to someone else.
On the day of, please pray with your kids before you go in. We will meet outside the building and go in together as a group at 10:15. Please remind your kids there is no running, shouting and rough housing in the facility. There will be people receiving medical attention and resting. Remove them at your discretion if there is a problem. Maybe you can practice a few things your kids can say to them such as "Hi, my name is ..." "I made a card for you," "I love you," etc. Make sure your kids know to stay with you while you talk to the residents. We stay a max of one hour.
