Paul writes in Galations 6:10, "Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith." So how can we "do good" to those who are in the "household of faith." Well, let's use the example of missionaries. They work hard in their new chosen country. Many of them, depending upon their field of service, don't see much fruit. They become tired and weary. Then after several years of service, they finally get a furlogh of several weeks or months. And, what do they do with their furlough? They travel sround speaking at churches and visiting with supporters. It isn't the most restful trip back home. That's why the Christian Hospitality Network and Dallas Bay Baptist Church conduct missionary retreats around the world--to encourage and refresh those who are serving in the field.
