As a business owner and persuasive woman of faith, Lydia used her resources to help meet Paul’s needs and she welcomed the missionaries into her home. “When she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us” (Acts 16:15).
