Lifeline Dallas


Dallas By the Month and When Time Runs Out . . . Hallelujah!
By Jesse Stroup, Director of Spiritual Care - Dallas

DallasIn August we were able to move into our new office location, 6300 Harry Hines Blvd. suite 101, Dallas, TX 75235. This location is in UT’s Chase Bank Building just across from the new UT Clements Hospital. The location is .3 mile from Parkland Hospital, Zale Lipshy, and Children’s Medical Center. The office is accommodating, and Volunteer Martha Vannoy comes and helps me in the office a couple of times per month. I really like our new set-up. In September we offered a workshop, Ministry In Times of Illness and Loss Part One, at Walnut Hill Church of Christ. This congregation was so helpful with the workshop and two of their members were participants. Out of the eleven participants from seven metroplex congregations who came, we have five advancing to become bedside volunteers on a regular basis. I am pleased about this. In October we had eight Learn Briefs for seasoned volunteers and friends of Lifeline Chaplaincy. These one-hour teaching sessions equip participants on topics relevant to Lifeline’s mission. We gathered in our new office and focused on these topics:

Alone with God (Loving Him Out Loud) Teacher: Jesse Stroup
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Teachers: Carol Pauley and Pat Scott
Connecting Emotionally with Long-Stay Patients
Teachers: Virgil Fry, Alan Wright and Mark Braun
Resting, Remembering, and Celebrating (Choosing Your Self-Care)
Teacher: Jesse Stroup

In November I worked at the bedside with the five candidates from our Sept. workshop at their hospital of choice. Presently we have 38 Active Volunteers and have openings where 19 more could be placed to serve on a weekly basis. November 1, Tim Johnson and Ann Fregia conducted a very good Development Board Meeting, and we are looking forward to seeing many supporters of Lifeline Dallas on Thursday, June 8, 2017 for our Benefit Dinner.

Lifeline Volunteers go into hospital rooms with great confidence in the God who keeps His promises. They bring a true sense of God’s glory and presence in the difficult times.

And when time runs out, “He is able to present you before his glorious presence without fault and in great joy.” Hallelujah! Jude 24
