Theresa, would you share some stories from people who’ve found hospitality through the Candle in the Window network?
Yes. We actually have a page on our website called member stories where your listeners can go and read excerpts of emails we get back. Those are the stories that make me smile. We’ve had several European homeschool families come over and travel throughout the United States, and one thing I would love to be able to do is connect Christian families overseas, especially homeschoolers, with one another for their encouragement. We got an email from a Swiss family who were so discouraged because the last homeschooling family they knew had moved away and they were lonely. Also, we had a father and daughter who were filmmakers stay with a family in England on their way to India and as a result, the English family is having them back to host one of Europe’s first Christian film camps this summer. We also had another large family in New Mexico with lots of young children, who had had one guest through the network, then they didn’t get any more for a while, and the children came lamenting and saying, “Why aren’t people coming?” And so the mom said, “Well, let’s pray,” so they sat down and prayed that God would send somebody and that very day they got another request.
Isn’t that great? These are such great testimonials, Theresa! Thank you so much for the great work you’re continuing to do through the network. And until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
