Our neighbour Rod turned 93 on 28th April. Because of inclement weather forecast, we were able to give him a revolving birthday party the day before. People came and went and then others came - we kept within the current restrictions (4 in our driveway and 4 on our neighbour’s lawn). Some brought goodies to eat and we kept the coffee mugs full! Rod appreciated the 2 plus hours of celebration (including singing Happy Birthday 3 times) and we feel these occasions are good for the mental health of all, especially those living alone and finding it hard to cope. Afterwards I was able to give a couple of pieces of the strawberry cream birthday sponge cake to the neighbours who couldn’t fit within the restrictions. We haven’t felt isolated at all and we trust these times are making a difference and will light up a few lonely hours in the days. We pray that our neighbours will be drawn to Christ at this uncertain time.
