Comfort Ye Ministry

Many need occur in the lives of the elderly and infirm. The goal of the Comfort Ye Ministry is to meet as many of these needs as possible. Many health-care organizations use the Comfort Ye Ministry for assisted-living equipment to aid their patients, no matter the age, in recovery. In order to know in what areas assistance is needed, we ask that you or some member of the family come to our office, located at 307 E. Jefferson Pike, so that we can talk. From the information gathered at that meeting, we can more efficiently meet the needs represented. We want to help all those who come to have their needs met and get to know a new friend--Mrs. Shirley Abbott. Mrs. Shirley can be contacted by calling 615-890-3834.

Many things are taken for granted or overlooked by those who are well, are badly needed by the elderly and infirm. Here at the Comfort Ye Ministry we are always searching for ways to meet these needs. One way we have found to help is through our food pantry. We have not only groceries but toiletry supplies as well. Below are listed just a few of the products that are available. The equipment room of the Comfort Ye Ministry building contains supplies that are needed by many to conduct their everyday tasks. This equipment can help bring dignity to those whose health has begun to fail them. These items are collected by the Comfort Ye Ministry for the sole purpose of giving them to those who are in need. If a problem occurs with the equipment, Brother Ray Abbott will either repair the item, or the Ministry will replace the mechanical part, at no cost to the user. The only stipulation put on the equipment is that when it is no longer needed, it be returned to the Comfort Ye Ministry to be used by another individual.

Available items include:

The Comfort Ye Ministry began as a burden that God gave to Mrs. Shirley Abbott. It is a faith-based ministry that helps the needy without any cost to them. This ministry is solely supported by the giving of others. There are no overhead expenses. Each dollar given goes directly to help those in need. Any building expenses are covered by the Heartland Baptist Church. Bro. Ray Abbott and Mrs. Shirley donate their time, collecting no salary to do as God has instructed them to do---help the needy.
