My spouse was beginning to show signs of memory loss in 2007. I felt impressed to move to Springfield, Missouri where we would have access to better medical services.
We lived for five years just north of Springfield. My wife’s condition continued to worsen. The Lord began impressing on me about moving to Maranatha Village retirement community. We needed the security of knowing that if something happened to me, my wife would have a home, the same friends, a Christian environment, her medical needs met, and physical security.
My wife and I enjoyed five wonderful years together before she entered a memory facility. She fell and broke her leg, at which time, she was moved to the Maranatha Village nursing facility. This made it possible for me to visit her twice a day for the next 20 months before she passed away.
Moving to Maranatha Village was a good move for my wife and me. The neighbors are friendly, caring, and become good friends. It is a wonderful atmosphere in which to spend one’s senior years. I have continued living here, and enjoy every day. I found a place to serve as manager of Maranatha Village Mall—a community thrift store. Think about moving here, pray about it, and if possible, visit our campus. May the Lord direct your steps.
