As a part of the conferencewide In Discipleship education initiative, students, parents and teachers from Baltimore-White Marsh Adventist School (BWMAS) recently visited the Franklin Woods Center nursing home in Rosedale, Md. The students sang musical selections, presented gift baskets to each of the residents and presented a card to the staff.
“Giving out the blankets to the elderly inspired me the most because it reminded me of my 97-year-old great grandmother,” says Noah Baker, a fifth-grader at BWMAS. “When you make others happy, especially your elders, you feel really good.”
“I really enjoyed that when we sang, the seniors sang along, says Anny Navarro, seventh-grader at BWMAS. “They looked very happy when they saw us and seeing them happy made my day!”
The residents expressed gratitude to have the children in their midst and the school plans to return in the future.
