Hospitality for the Hospitality House
Doing a good deed for those in need; the farmboy and I set out yesterday for a trip. Our SUV was loaded up with toy donations for the Hospitality House in Huntsville.
Hospitality House offers short term lodging to the families of local inmates. During their stay, families have access to a chapel, fresh hot meals, family friendly rooms, and a food pantry. In the past my family has joined with the Girl's In Action outreach and donated to their food pantry also spending time stocking shelves.
Today our sweet volunteers took quite a liking to my young teen, offering him a full guided tour of their facility. We met the director, several volunteers, and learned some of the history of the Hospitality House.
The artwork of inmates beautifully decorates the common area..our favorite is a pen and ink depiction of Christ that incorporates various scenes from His life.
Hospitality House shared their newest project: a prayer garden. It seems a Young college student has designed and donated their efforts to build this new blessing. Before we left, we learned of various opportunities to assist the facility such as adopting a room and serving on sight.
We had a great morning with the volunteers and left with peace in our hearts knowing this ministry provides so much with so little assistance. After leaving we took the time to visit around the Huntsville area. but, we'll share more about that tomorrow...there's chores to be done!
