2013 Praise Report from International Students Incorporated

ISI, one of our Local Mission strategic partners is faithful to serve international students at UNM year in and year out.  Are you looking for a way to get connected with folks from every tongue, nation, and tribe (Revelation 7:9-10)?  Look no further than our partnership with ISI.ISI Logo

Check out what God did through ISI in 2013, and consider connecting with them to help share the love of Christ to students in 2014.

In 2013, God used ISI to…

  • Provided Welcome Services to almost 120 students.
  • Serve lunch to over 300 people at the Welcome Center
  • Host/cohost 3 Welcome Parties (All Nationalities about 125 attending)
  • Provide Bibles & lunch to 27 students in the bible discussion group (From Iran, China, Nigeria, Mexico, Peru, Korea, Ethiopia, Hong Kong, Pakistan)
  • Match 72 students with friendship partners (13 remaining)
  • Train 17 new ministry volunteers
  • Mobilize 14 Americans involved in active intentional discipling through Bible study

Several DSC folks are already involved with ISI.  If you want, I can connect you with them so that you can tag along, or simply ask them what it is like.  Either way, email me at missions@desertspringschurch.org and I can get you connected.  Want to make friends with international students and serve them with the love of Jesus?  You can also get in touch with ISI directly by contacting the Joan at jlasche@isionline.org.
