Turning strangers into friends

November 8, 2019

3 John 1:5 - Dear friend, when you extend hospitality to Christian brothers and sisters, even when they are strangers, you make the faith visible.  

There is a saying, "Strangers are friends you haven't met yet."  At Home Sweet Home Ministries, our employees and volunteers have opportunities to turn strangers into friends every day.  Our mission statement states that we will "demonstrate Christ's love."  Our interactions with strangers is a perfect opportunity to do just that.  Every day dozens of people call or come into our shelter with a variety of requests.  Every day hundreds of people drop off donations and shop at Mission Mart.  Every day hundreds of donors contribute to Home Sweet Home Ministries, making our work possible.  Every day we interact with vendors, contractors, and volunteers.  I am grateful for all the ways in which our employees and volunteers make faith visible, demonstrate Christ's love, and turn strangers into friends.
