A lesson in hospitality

March 12, 2019

Yesterday we had the privilege of joining our friends at the Pentecostal Community Church for worship in Dzaleka. Upon arrival we were greeted with the biggest smiles and hugs I have seen in a long time. We were also greeted by these two children with the words "you are welcome." It struck me that refugees are so quick to welcome us into their communities but so often the rest of the world will not welcome them into their communities. It was a real lesson in hospitality.
