While missionaries and their families are on furlough or deputation, they sometimes need overnight accommodations. Many missionaries find having to pay high cost of hotel or motels has been very hard. The families will drive for hours to get to their destination without stopping. This is difficult on the children and of course the parents. Our Hospitality Network has contact information for many host families across North America who are willing to provide overnight accommodation for them.

There is always a need for host families – would you like to become a host family? You can offer your home as a place for a missionary family to be refreshed…giving them a place to relax, unwind and get a good night’s rest before starting on their journey. Most of all, you would be offering your home to God as a ministry tool in building His kingdom here on earth as you use your gifts to serve others, displaying God’s grace as you do.

As a host family you provide for the needs of the missionary staying overnight by:

  • Offering an evening meal and breakfast
  • Providing a suitable place for the missionary and/or family to sleep
  • Allowing time for fellowship to hear ministry updates and how you can possibly be involved through prayer and support


Benefits and blessings for the host family:

  • By providing a place where missionaries can receive food, fellowship, and encouragement, you’re saving them the cost of a motel and food.
  • As a host family you will be blessed through meeting more members of the Body of Christ and hearing stories of what God’s doing in other parts of the world.
  • Through your involvement as a host family you are part of the important task of reaching those who are yet unreached.

Testimony from a host family:
“We just want to say ‘thank you!’ After being in the San Antonio area for four years, we have had three missionary families come through and stay with us in the last eight months. What a joy!!! A blessing indeed! Thank you so much. We have enjoyed having everyone and look forward to getting to know many more missionaries. We are praying for your ministry. Thanks again, and the Lord be with you.” – J&S, San Antonio TX

Testimony from a missionary family:
“We want to thank you for your prayers! Our stay at Bill and Helen’s was a wonderful experience. They have a lovely home, made us feel so welcome, and we had great fellowship with them. In spite of the fact that they look after both their mothers, in their 80’s and 90’s, and both in wheelchairs, they certainly made us feel at home. We thank you for your help and all that Friends in Action does to further the work of the Lord through being an encouragement to missionaries. May the Lord continue to bless your efforts.” – In Him, J&M
