"We all know the story of the good samaritan, but what most people leave out is the innkeeper. We need more innkeepers, people who will take care of the wounded traveler."

In 1996, after leading a small business for fifteen years, God called Bob Hartenstein and his wife Janet into a new adventure, ministry. For some time, they struggled to find their place, but as Fredrich Buechner writes, “The place where God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger coincide.” Having a heart for people, they sought out a need and noticed a plethora of ministry leaders and missionaries who were tired, wounded travelers in desperate
 need of Shabbat with no resources to receive it. God gave them the vision to fulfill this deep hunger, and Bob and Jan established Innkeeper, where ministry workers can stay free of charge to rest. Innkeeper began with one building and a few guests. Today, she partners with TNF and has 64+ acres of beautiful, picturesque land and three beautiful fully furnished buildings. Each day God provides, allowing Bob and Jan to continue to tend the wounded traveler. If you are a pastor, missionary, or ministry leader, Bob and Jan’s hearts are for you. Come and rest a while.
