Hospitality, Part 5
-Char Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Living in the middle of nowhere on the edge of the Ozarks. That’s what we thought. Come to find out it was amazing how the area drew people to visit and live. One day while stirring a pot of soup on the stove, our phone rang and it was a friend from California traveling with his wife whom we had never met. They were wondering if they could come by for a visit as they travelled to a nearby city. One thing I have learned in the ministry of hospitality is how important it is to let the Holy Spirit be the Director of who comes.
It is an atmosphere of a home that people relax in and find it easy to open their hearts. It has been a privilege to sit around the table with a piece of pie before us sharing hearts and needs. What a joyous visit it was as we had the privilege to hear her heart pour out, another opportunity of hospitality.
When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality (Romans 12:13 NLT).
Char Lessin was raised on a Minnesota farm and grew to love the Lord at a young age. She and Roy met while they attended Bethany Fellowship in Bloomington, MN and early in their marriage they served together as missionaries in Mexico and Puerto Rico. She continues to serve the Lord through their home in NW Arkansas, ministering to the people that the Lord brings to her.
