Everyone needs relationships. No one thrives alone.
Almon Adams is a prime example of that. A lifelong Christian, he moved away from his rural community when living alone became difficult.
As Almon ages, he struggles to remember some things that used to come to him easily. Few family members live nearby, which limits their ability to visit. Loneliness has become a growing concern for his family and friends.
But a new program called Kin Ministry offered through his daughter's congregation, Trinity Lutheran Church in Yankton, South Dakota, is helping him connect with a trusted volunteer and with family members.
