Faithful Friends Announcement

After 22 years of developing and managing, Larry & Sandy Wasserman have decided to begin another chapter of life as they announce their retirement. We are all grateful to Larry and Sandy for their many years of faithfulness and sacrifice in resourcing nursing home missionaries across the country.

"We are very thankful to all those who gave us their support and prayers over the years. We are looking forward to the Lord's leading as we retire in Ocala, FL." ~ Larry & Sandy Wasserman

Along with this decision, Larry has asked God Cares Ministry to take on the responsibility of maintaining this website.

God Cares Ministry is a nursing home ministry that recruits, trains and supports Christians to share the love and word of God with nursing home residents. Our goal is that every church would adopt a care home in their community! For training, coaching and additional resources, please visit our site at

We look forward to getting to know you, and learning how we can continue to serve and support you as you minister to "the least of these" in our nation's care homes. We are here to help you take your first (or next) steps in growing a fruitful ministry.

On a personal note, I would like to thank Larry and Sandy for their amazing dedication and contribution to the nursing home mission field. You have truly been "Faithful Friends" to those living in care homes, and those missionaries who share Christ's love with them. May God continue to bless and use you two as you begin this new chapter of your lives!

In Christ's service,
Chaplain Bill Goodrich
