You know how it is. You're reading a passage in God's word. You have read the same passage many times before, but this time your mind begins to connect the dots or in this case the scriptures.
Jesus was ethnic blind, he was status blind. He saw all people the same way. He saw their inner being, not their skin color or accent, or whether they were rich or poor.
He would listen to them with compassion. He understood where they were coming from. He came to show them a better way to live. He cared for their physical and emotional needs. In short, He loved them. And the words come to us with gentle permission "Go and do likewise".
For fifty-six years that's what Lakeview Christian Home has been committed to doing. Receive the elderly no matter what their ethnic or economic status. Caring for them the way Jesus would want us to do every day in every way.
In 2015 Lakeview served over five hundred individuals. Some through our skilled Rehab and Nursing facility programs, others through Home Health and Hospice, and still others as they have chosen to begin their aging journey in our retirement communities, River Bend and The Villages.
As a non-profit organization, your generosity over the years has blessed our residents with hope and a new life as they age with dignity in our Christian environment.
