Peter and Amanda Smyth serve in rural northern Vermont, one of the poorer areas of the state. Their ministry serves several counties with a mix of economic and religious backgrounds.
There are very few options to help the elderly age at home in the Smyths’ rural hometown of Craftsbury and the surrounding area. With a heart for hospice care and a love to help facilitate caregiver support and grief share groups from a biblical standpoint, they felt called to set up their ministry in this poorer rural community.
After seeing the need in their community, the Smyths started “Love Is,” a home care company that serves the elderly by allowing them to age at home rather than in a facility. Peter and Amanda seek to share the love of Christ through their business with those they serve, the people they employ, and the community in which they live.
Feeling both passionate about and called to minister to the elderly, Peter and Amanda have had numerous opportunities to provide end-of-life care to those on hospice. Funds raised through InFaith are used to partially or completely fund end-of-life care to families in need.
The Smyths have served as InFaith field staff since 2012.
“Love Is,” a home care company that serves the elderly, was started in January 2012 when Peter and Amanda were called out of their comfortable lives in Pennsylvania—Peter flying airplanes and Amanda staying home with their four children. Trusting God, they moved to Vermont and continue to learn and trust while “Love Is” grows.
