ISI Students Need Friendship Partners and the Good News

ISIHey DSC folks! Check out how many International Students are in need of help this fall! Helping can mean being a Friendship Partner, leading or hosting Bible Study, donating furniture or household items, being an English Tutor/Conversation Partner, hosting a Hiking/Sightseeing Trip, or hosting a Thanksgiving Dinner.  And check out what these students are interested in doing while they are here: studying the Bible, visiting your church, discussing the Bible together, and learning English using the Bible.  God has prepared them to hear and us to tell.

ISI Needs Temporary Homestay

2015 | by Clint | Category: Iternational Students Incorporated,Local

ISI LogoJoan Lasché, ABQ ISI Ministry Representative, needs volunteers, temporary homestays, and Friendship Partners for International Students arriving over the next few weeks. Your time, help, and friendship makes such a positive impact on their experience here in America. Joan writes:

Big Request!! Either we have more students this year or less volunteers. It seems like we have a lot of students on our list and not a lot of people offering to host them.

· Pray that God would move in the hearts of people who have been less active in this ministry to give them a new vision for serving students.

· Pray for people that have been through orientation but that have never hosted a student, that they would be willing to give it a try.

· Pray for a miraculous meeting of the needs of each student that requests services from us.

Specific needs for Welcome Center:

· Pray for the matching of students and friendship partner/host families

· Pray that God would be preparing hearts of students to receive the Gospel

· Pray that all would go smoothly the during the next month and there will be no major obstacles to the ministry that we are partnering together in.
