You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. - Deuteronomy 10:19 (NRSV)

My husband and I invited Mina and her husband over for coffee and dessert. They are from Iran and had moved to our small town for graduate studies seven months earlier. But they told us that we were the only people in our town who had befriended them so far....

Today's Prayer
Gracious God, help us always to show kindness and compassion to strangers and to be your hands and feet in the world. Amen.

Seeing young people, both men and women, participate in and write their testimonies at The Upper Room daily devotional writers’ workshop in Yangon, 2019, has been a highlight for me. The event and testimonies led to the publication of the first Lenten devotional in the Myanmar language. I truly believe that through The Upper Room ministry, the Lord will continue to equip people in Myanmar to grow and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
