Meet Yvonne Fisk, our new Chaplain
Yvonne was ordained as a minister in the (Wesleyan) and Methodist church in 2005. Before that, she had already been involved in the church as a lay preacher and volunteer for many years. As a volunteer, Yvonne worked with young children and the elderly, and she was also very involved in establishing a new church in Porirua for over six years.
“I’ve always been passionate about working with older people,” she says. “HBH Senior Living feels like the place where I was meant to be. I have had a wonderful welcome and I already feel very much at home here. I think our seniors are absolute treasures, they’ve served their families, church and community: now they’re in a place where someone needs to support them.”
“HBH is a very special place. Everyone is very kind, friendly and caring …. it shines through all the staff,” she says. “Everybody takes such care in making it a place where our residents are cared for, celebrated and respected – and that they can truly call home.”
“As the new Chaplain, I am facing new challenges and opportunities to serve our Lord. This is my prayer I would like to share so anyone can use it anytime they face those similar situations – especially as we all struggle in such uncertain times.”
– Reverend Yvonne Fisk, HBH Chaplain
Scripture Joshua 1:6 Be strong and courageous.
Lord as I come to this place
As I meet people face to face
Guide me, lead me, to serve you.
Let my heart be true,
To be a Blessing each day
My hands, my feet, in whatever way,
You choose to use me,
However I’m called to be.
Let me serve you by serving those here.
