Are These People For Real?
One of the things I love to do most is to stand in the hallways at church and hug necks and shake hands. I love seeing people who I have known for years and I love meeting new people for the first time. This past week I had a really neat conversation with a couple. It was their second time coming to Freedom House and I told them I hope they felt at home and if they needed anything to let us know. Their response I thought was amazing. The wife said, “Honestly everyone has come up to us and introduced themselves to us. Everyone was so incredibly friendly we had to ask ourselves, are these people for real?”
What a great compliment to all those who make Freedom House a home. I truly love the people I get to serve with each and every week. To have a new guest say that lets me know that you got it, people count! I was so proud of everyone who made this couple feel so welcomed and not only this couple but everyone who walks in the doors each week.
I am still not finished though! Another couple who has been coming for several months was standing by when the new couple said how much love they have received. They too said that when they first came they wondered if “these people are for real” too because they were so overwhelmed by love. They began to say that after being at the church for as long as they have they realized it was FOR REAL! We all just love people!
Freedom House, you guys are so amazing! You ARE for real! I thank God for you!
