The story of John and Judy Pex and their conversion to faith in Yeshua (Jesus) as hippies roaming the world in the 1970s, to their immigration to Israel, and how the door opened for them to open a hostel near the Red Sea. The book follows the various people groups who have come to the hostel during the past thirty years: backpackers, African pilgrims, Arabs from surrounding areas, Russian immigrants, Chinese and Romanian construction workers, Israel Trail hikers, and Sudanese refugees - told through touching and humorous vignettes. For thirty years, the Shelter Hostel has provided a beacon of light and a welcoming home for people from over ninety countries, as the Pexes use their gifts of hospitality and evangelism. These touching and humorous memoirs reveal how the Lord uses ordinary people to participate in His extraordinary work.
