In our church, missionaries occasionally stay with host families. Our ward currently has several host families, including George and Marilyn Lowe, longtime friends.
The Lowes have opened up their home several times to young missionaries, some of whom have just left home for the first time. Their manners are a bit raw, their social sensibilities underdeveloped. But George and Marilyn never complain. They feed the missionaries, provide rides for them, and many times act as surrogate parents.
George and Marilyn do this out of love, for the Gospel, for the Lord, for these young men.
So, for today, I am grateful for George and Marilyn Lowe.
