Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing, some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13: 1-2



In these cold dark days of February, I find myself full of light. The light from God our father fills my soul and the light of Nano’s lantern inspires me to continue the important work of welcoming the migrant to their new home in the Sioux Falls area.

At Caminando Juntos, we recently had a woman and her two teenage sons drop in asking for help to find housing. Newly arrived from Florida, they came with what they could fit into their vehicle plus a little pet.

With the generous offer of some warm beds and roof over their heads from a supporter of Caminando Juntos, they were able to keep warm before beginning the search for an apartment here in Sioux Falls. Why would a single mother and her two sons move from sunny Florida to South Dakota … in the middle of winter? She had heard there were jobs available and her choices were few if she stayed in Florida.

One never knows who will come to our doors needing assistance with something. Hebrews 13 reminds us to practice hospitality. When we do, we may be offering hospitality to an angel and not be aware that we welcomed in an angel.

Through your generous and prayerful support, Caminando Juntos continues to practice hospitality to the Latino sojourner/migrant who comes to our doors.  Thank you for your ongoing partnership with us in shining God’s light onto the path of the sojourner/migrant. Nano’s light was lit by God’s light, so to is our light. May your light shine today, as you continue to practice hospitality with us.
