Update from international ministry, Briarwood members show Biblical hospitality

Biblical Hospitality:

biblicalhospitalityOur God is hospitable, and He has commanded His covenant people to show hospitality to strangers. In the New Testament, the Greek word translated “hospitality” literally means “love of strangers.”

During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, many Briarwood members opened their homes to international students to have a meal and to celebrate the holidays.

The students have been touched by the hospitality of our members. Many internationals become Christians because because they study God’s Word along with experiencing hospitality from Christians. Showing hospitality is a powerful companion of gospel sharing ministry.
