Hospitality

The generous and loving reception of guests, whether they be friends invited to a home, travelers provided with lodging and a listening ear, or immigrants settling in a new city and country, reflects the generous and loving heart of God. EMM has a long-standing tradition of offering hospitality via the ministry of Amani Gardens Inn (formerly the Mennonite Guest House) in Nairobi, Kenya. In recent years, hospitality ministry has expanded to include welcoming and serving immigrants, especially in Europe and the United States.

Contributions to this ministry could help to fund an intercultural center in Germany that provides a sense of community for immigrants from many countries or help to cover the cost of recruiting and placing workers at Amani Gardens Inn in Kenya.
