Angels in our Midst (PCC Choir)

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 01:43 PM CDT
PENSACOLA  -  They're college friends majoring in Biology, Sports Management, Nursing and everything in between.
   
There's not a music major among them but they use their voices to make the music of Angels in our Midst.

The sweet, sweet sounds float through the hall of the Covenant Hospice Residence.  These Pensacola Christian College students from different walks of life, lift united voices for a single cause.

Claire Hatfield, Pensacola Christian College Student;  "My favorite verse in the Bible is Jude 22.  It says, And if some have compassion, making a difference.  And I would say that sums up everything that we're trying to do; have compassion, show love."

This is their mission field every Sunday. When one patient was slipping away, they were called with a moment's notice.

Sandi Kosowski, Covenant Hospice Volunteer;  "But, those girls were all there.  12 of them came, with musicians and their beautiful voices.  And they sang to this gentleman for half an hour.'

They bring comfort to the families as well.
  
Claire;  "She told us, You know, you gave me a peace because I saw a smile on my husband's face right before he went and I know that you helped place that there."

Claire;  "They love hearing old hymns.  It just brings back so many memories."

Miss Dot, Remembers Her Church Choir;  "I sing alto at church when I sing in the choir. But, I haven't been able to sing in six months or more."

We've no last days to sing God's praise than when we first begun. 
In every room, a similar story.

It is hard not seeing the same faces every week; knowing that some have gone on.  Still, they come.

Claire; "Before we come, we just all meet together and we pray and ask God for peace and for grace and that we can pass that along to the people we are going to be touching that day."

Miss Dot;  "The singers were wonderful, wonderful.  You couldn't ask for no better."

Claire;  "That's what we try to bless the patients with; just a little bit of heaven on earth."

Angels in our Midst is brought to you by Sacred Heart Children's Hospital.
