This is a quick start guide for crossing cultures and developing friendships with international students.
As North American Christians, we have an unprecedented opportunity to develop friendships with international students, to be God's ambassadors without leaving home. This booklet shares stories, foundational approaches, and practical steps on developing friendships with international students. It is a quick start guide to help college students, pastors, friends, small group members, and volunteers connect with the more than 1 million international students on US college and university campuses right now.
“I love it! It is extremely accessible, answers what I feel are the most frequently asked questions, and calms some of the most frequently held fears/anxieties about engaging in friendships with internationals. The direction, guidance, and suggestions are very practical and easily applied in the contexts students will find themselves in.” -Michael Hughes, InterVarsity staff minister
“Bravo! I really like the booklet. It is succinct, practical, and positive. The stories of the various students are realistic and help readers see that these students are real people who are on a journey, not simply potential converts.” -Clare O’Leary, Director of SIL/LEAD Community Programs and Wycliffe missionary for 35 years
This booklet is great to give those who just watched this video about friendships with international students.
