THE STORY:

 International Students, Inc., exists to share Christ's love with international college students.  Since 1953, ISI has been training Americans to meet international students' needs.  These Americans befriend international students and help them adjust to American culture.

The Need
Our culturally sensitive and concerned staff and volunteers are reaching out to thousands of the more than 1,100,000 international students who study in the United States each year.  These students, separated from family and friends, often feel lonely and isolated and are unsure about how to relate to America's culture and its people.  Sadly, many international students are never invited into an American home.  Many miss the opportunity to have an American friend.

Meeting the Need
ISI works closely with international student advisers and other college and university officials to help students.  We offer friendship to any student, regardless of race, nationality, or religious preference.  ISI staff and volunteers are working on 677 campuses across the country to orient and acquaint international students to their new home and cultural experience.

Given in honor of a former team mate of mine who, though younger than I, is not as much younger as I thought! God bless you Bill and Katie and your ministry. It was good to see that great grin again on this site. :-) 4 years ago
