The Impact of ISF
As we approach the beginning of the academic year, we spoke with one of our international students at FBC. Regarding the experience of international students, Chris says, “Students arrive with two suitcases to start an academic experience that is totally foreign to them. Many know no one in El Paso. Many things are different from home and it can be a scary experience. The love expressed to students by FBC is invaluable in grounding and encouraging us.“
Christopher Ato Dodoo is from Ghana in West Africa. He arrived in El Paso in 2011. After completing a Masters in Statistics at UTEP he was hired as a statistician at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center.
Immediately upon arriving in El Paso, Chris started to attend FBC and became involved in the International Student Fellowship. He has led Bible studies for ISF retreats, volunteered in the Machuca Apartment Ministry, currently teaches in the Singles Sunday School Class, and serves on the FBC Media Team. These days, he also welcomes and mentors new students arriving from Ghana and organizes a soccer team for students.
The ministry of International Student Fellowship impacts the lives of students from all over the world. Thank you for supporting this outpouring of Christ’s love.
