In October 2013, the core team organized a diner for international student friends and had about thirty in attendance. We were able to connect more deeply with existing friends and were able to make a number of new friends. We also hosted a Harvest party at Treworgy Family Orchards last weekend and had Muslims, Christians, and seekers from Pakistan, Iran, China, Japan, Egypt, India, and yes, even America. We had a great time eating, running around in the corn maze, and contra-dancing together.
Also Todd, a member of our core team, has just started a Bible study for these international students, most of whom are in graduate school. The second meeting is tonight so be praying that the group grows and that all involved grow in faith as a result.
