Caring Crew: Our new TAP program (Telephone Assistance Program) is working well as an additional touch for our homebound folks. Thank you to Rebecca Main who suggested this program. Rebecca reports that calling began Oct 7, with thirteen calls made to date (Dec 11, 2019), and all-spoken with have welcomed future calls. During calls, some recent comments include enjoying the Christmas Caroling group and a new bed! Caring Crew has adopted Jeremiah 1:9 as an inspirational verse for PLC-TAP: “Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth.” We like it!
