Visiting the sick in hospital I meet people who are sick, frightened and broken hearted. Instead of following their normal life they are lying in a hospital bed. They don’t know what the future will be. Will they gain full health? How are their families coping with their hospital stay. These people need to know the love and care of God.

‘The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’ Psalm 34:18
