“Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith ... bodies washed with pure water.” —Hebrews 10:22
In some areas of Central Asia a good hostess washes the hands of her guests before food is served. A child or young woman carries a bowl and pitcher of water into the room with a towel thrown over her arm. She places the bowl in front of a guest and pours water from the pitcher while the guest washes her hands over the bowl. The bowl is then moved to the next person as the first dries her hands with the towel. Wash each woman’s hands in this manner.
