Ministry Events

Through all of our activities, we seek to express the love of Christ to internationals and to allow them to learn about relationship with our loving Creator God through Jesus Christ.

º Monthly Fellowship Dinners

º Bible Discovery and Discussion

º Excursions to Events and Destinations in El Paso and the Surrounding Area

Friendship Family Program

The possibilities, and the depth of relationship, are limitless and will be different in every case. This is a crucial part of our ministry because it creates a personal bond with individual students that goes beyond what our committee of a dozen people can do. Ideas:

º Invite the student to your home for at least one or two meals during the semester

º Be available to answer questions about functioning in America

º Take the student on a shopping trip to Walmart when they first arrive

º Invite the student to visit an attraction in the area with you

How Can You Get Involved?

º Become a Friendship Family

º Provide food for events

º Help with transportation

º Donate furniture for the use of our students

º Pray for us, individually or participate in a prayer team
