A Cup of Cold Water: Hospitality at Its Best

In presenting this book, it is my hope that the ministry of hospitality will become nearer and dearer to your heart and that you will discover new ways to serve those who come your way. We have been called by God to wave the flag of hospitality. We have been asked to minister to the saints and to refresh their hearts. The effectiveness of the ministry will be in direct proportion to the love, commitment, and servant attitude expressed by each of us.

As you read this book, consider how its suggestions and experiences can be used in your ministry. Although many of the stories describe YWAM experiences, practices, and structure, the principles can be adapted for any individual or ministry desiring to walk in the ministry of hospitality. Don’t hesitate to “give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty… The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice. You won’t loose out on a thing” (Matt. 10:42 MSG).
