From a Guest Family:

"From the bottom of our hearts, we thank all of the host churches that opened their doors to our family, welcomed us with open arms, and made sure we had everything we needed. Words can’t really explain how thankful we really are for everyone that volunteered time away from their families and schedules just to take care of us and make sure that we were comfortable and happy. LaToya was always going the extra mile to help in any way possible and her desire to see us succeed really made a difference."

From a Host Church:

"Walnut Hills United Methodist Church was among the first congregational members of the Des Moines Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (DMIHN). DMIHN has been a terrific opportunity for us to live out our own vision of interfaith partnership and service to others. Our members have received far more in being able to serve our guest families than we will ever be able to give."

"Even though our building is frequently in use there is always more than enough time and space to offer hospitality to those families without a home. In this day and age not a single one of us can be assured we ourselves might not need the same hospitality of another host congregation one day. Becoming part of DMIHN is one of the most important decisions Walnut Hills has ever made."
