Ruth and John Campbell

Ruth and John Campbell peek in at the residents following Monday's service. The two have been holding services for residents at Scenic Manor in Iowa Falls from the patio.

John and Ruth Campbell aren't ordained pastors, they just enjoy sharing the word of God. They’ve been doing that at Scenic Manor for a while now. For John, it’s always been a personal endeavor.

“We started when my mother went to Scenic Manor in 1991,” John said. “I would visit various rooms and hand out some Sunday School papers and talk with the people who wanted to talk. Then my brother Jim went there and I would go every morning to feed him breakfast and communicate with the people I became acquainted with.”
