Come-Stay-Celebrate! By Judith Galblum Pex

Make yourself available to God, and He will use you in ways you can't imagine!
You will be convinced of this as you read the story of John and Judy Pex and their conversions as hippies roaming the world in the 1970s to their immigration to Israel, and how the door opened for them to start a hostel near the Red Sea.
In the volatile and highly-charged atmosphere of the Middle East, the Shelter is a point of reconciliation between believers and non-believers, Jews and non-Jews, Israelis and Arabs, all staying together under one roof. For people from over ninety countries the Shelter Hostel has provided a beacon of light and a welcoming home for thirty years, as the Pexes use their gifts of hospitality and evangelism.

Enjoy these touching and humorous stories that reveal how the Lord uses ordinary people to participate in His extraordinary work.

Margie’s Comments: Ever since I first read and reviewed Judith Pex’s other two books with Cladach—Walk the Land: A Journey on Foot through Israel and A People Tall and Smooth: Stories of escape from Sudan to Israel—I’ve wanted to know more about the hostel she and her husband run in southern Israel. Their testimony of how they came to know the Lord and each other and how the Lord drew them into this wonderful ministry through the hostel is fascinating. Come-Stay-Celebrate is full of stories about Judy and John’s life together. I thoroughly enjoyed reading their story . . . and who knows? Maybe one day I will get to meet this fascinating couple who continue to use their gifts and talents to glorify their Lord. I highly recommend this book to all my readers.

About the author:
Judith Galblum Pex was born in Washington, D.C., but has lived with her husband, John, in Eilat, Israel, since 1976. Twenty-six years ago John and Judith began The Shelter Hostel, a guest house for travelers from all over the world and a drop-in center for anyone searching for physical, emotional, or spiritual support. John, from Holland, is the pastor of the Eilat Congregation, a multi-cultural, non-denominational fellowship.
Judith and John are the parents of four grown children, two of whom are married. All the children live in Israel. In her free time Judith likes to read, hike and camp in the mountains around Eilat, and to snorkel in the Red Sea. Learn more about Judith, her books, and the Pexes’ work and ministry at:

"Judy Pex loves the Lord and she loves Israel. My wife and I have wholeheartedly enjoyed her compelling and wonderfully-written stories about all that God has been accomplishing through her and John and their team. Their fascinating vantage point on Israel and the Jewish people and the spiritual awakening that is happening here provides unique insights that will encourage your faith!"
