I walked past the bedroom at the end of our hallway, and heard the young couple speaking in their own language – Danish. My heart leapt as I suddenly recalled the “word” we had received from a man of God, many years ago.
With great authority he declared over us, “People from many nations will dine with you around your table and stay in your home…” His message continued, but my mind fixed on this point. I paused to wonder how would God do this? How could we possibly find these international friends? Though my mind asked questions, peace filled my heart as two of my favorite words from scripture rose up.
Back then, we knew few people from other nations…but God…through His amazing love and wisdom, wove our lives into an international family called (link here) Salt and Light. And today, I can no longer count the number of international friends who have dined with us, and have stayed in our home. Together we pray, read the scriptures, worship, laugh, eat, sight-see, shop, and have deep conversations. Our lives are enriched and strengthened through their friendship. And in the end, we are greatly changed from time spent with these precious people!
Who knew we would meet and love so many friends from other parts of the world? No one….BUT GOD!
