Sound of Your Love is a simple service that’s easy for anyone to use and has the healthcare staff in mind. First, a friend or family member signs up for an account. They receive a unique call-in phone number that they can send to others. When people call the number, they’re instructed on how to record a message. The message is populated in the system. Later on, the staff at the hospital, hospice, or nursing home can get access to the unique phone number. The staff member selects “listen to messages,” to play back all the messages at once.

In the midst of the distance we are experiencing, the church's action has become slightly limited in terms of individual contact, having a hard time to be in touch and stay close to those who need.
