HIS Mission (Helping International Students/Sholars)
THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS AND SCHOLARS WHO WORK AND STUDY IN THE US TODAY ARE WORLD LEADERS OF TOMORROW. GOD HAS BROUGHT THEM TO US SO WE CAN REACH THEM WITH PEACE AND GOOD WILL. BECAUSE OF THIS, WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW THEM LOVE THROUGH HOSPITALITY AND MEETING THEIR FELT NEEDS. YOU MIGHT ASK, WHAT ARE FELT NEEDS AND WHY SHOULD WE DO THIS?
FIRST, FELT NEEDS ARE ALL THOSE NEEDS WE ALL SHARE WHILE VISITING OR TRAVELING, WORKING OR STUDYING IN A DIFFERENT CULTURE.
SECOND, WE SHOULD DO THIS BECAUSE THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS AND WE ARE OUR BROTHERS/SISTERS KEEPERS. WE SHOULD ALSO DO THIS BECAUSE IT’S WHAT AMERICA IS ABOUT: WELCOMING NEWCOMERS.
THE FIRST NEED: WE STRUGGLE WITH LANGUAGE FIRST. SO, THAT IS THE FIRST NEED WE MEET. HIS MISSIOIN TEACHES AAA ENGLISH (ADVANCE AMERICAN ACCENT). THERE ARE OTHER NEEDS, SUCH AS TRANSPORTATION AND MISSING HOME AND FAMILY. SO, WE TEACH DRIVING AND HELP THEM WITH FINDING AND BUYING CARS AND AUTO INSURANCE. WHEN IT COMES TO MISSING HOME AND FAMILY—SINCE NOTHING CAN REPLACE THAT—WE OPEN OUR OWN HOMES AND WELCOME THEM INTO OUR OWN FAMILIES TO GIVE THEM THAT WARM HOSPITABLE PLACE TO BE WHEN THEY ARE NOT WORKING OR STUDYING. THESE ENTITIES ARE NECESARRY TO ALL AND WHEN WE DON’T HAVE THEM WE BEGIN TO SUFFER CULTURE SHOCK, SOMETHING FOR WHICH WE OFFER COUNSELING.
HIS MISSION ENDEAVORS TO MEET THE NEEDS OF TOMORROWS WORLD LEADERS WHILE THEY ARE IN THE US SO THEY WILL SUFFER THE MINIMUM OF CULTURE SHOCK AND SO THEY CAN FULFILL THEIR PURPOSE FOR BEING IN THE US WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF DIFFICULTY.
OUR PURPOSE IN DOING THIS IS TO SHOW THEM THE LOVE AND CARE ANYONE WOULD NEED WHILE THEY ARE FAR FROM HOME. IN SO DOING THIS, WE HOPE THEY WILL SEE A WARM AND LOVING US—A CHRISTIAN US. ONE, WHO OFFERES PEACE AND GOOD WILL TO THE INTERNATIONAL VISITOR.
ONE WORLD LEADER WHO COMPLETED HIS EDUCATATION IN THE US ONCE SAID, HE NEVER ONCE SAW THE INSIDE OF AN AMERICAN HOME WHILE HE STUDIED IN THE US. HIS MISSION WANTS TO CHANGE THAT AND MAKE AMERICA KNOWN FOR HER HOSPITALITY—HER LOVE AND CARE—HER PEACE AND GOOD WILL.
Some of the services we offer are AAA English (Advance American Accent); Driving lessons, help with buying cars and auto insurance; International Friendship Partners; Bible Studies; Introduction to other religions; Travel the US, etc.
We meet international students/scholars in their need as God meets us all. To show them the peace and good will and the love and care God intends for us all.
