Hospitality is not only inviting in strangers or friends into your home but it’s making your guests feel at home. They say, “East or West, home is the best.” Hence Hospitality is making your guests feel like, where have we been all this long?
Let’s be honest for a moment. Not many people would allow anyone they have no sort of history with to stay in their homes, otherwise there wouldn’t be homeless people on the streets. But this story is about the 5% that actually let a couple of strangers into their homes, with no idea what they looked like.
Hebrews 13:2 “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”
This is a story of strangers that collided and became instant friends. A story of people who so freely, lovingly opened up their homes to a family of orphans and adults. It’s been six months in Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia but not once have we slept on the street, or gone to bed hungry. We’ve been fully pampered and loved in ways so unexplainable you’d have to experience it yourself to understand.
In six months the kids and adults have been to places that locals haven’t even been and it’s been mind blowing.
We’ve heard stories of transformation from some of the hosts as they have been blessed by the little ones and their stories. Oh but enough about us.
This is a thank you note for our hosts.
The ones that have so easily made us feel like family, given us food for each passing day and places to lay our heads after long days, driven to far off places to pick us up after our late night shows, the ones that have shown us around so well we would give them the tour guides of the year award. I know it’s safe to say this experience wouldn’t have been the same without these big hearts, some, literally kindred spirits. We are and will forever be grateful for this opportunity to live, love and be loved by you. We don’t take it for granted.
To All our hosts.
