Review for International Friendships, Inc., Columbus, OH, USA
I had heard of IFI from friends in my church, but it wasn't until I went to the yearly banquet that I heard from international students themselves and realized what a good thing this organization is. The weekly Bible studies are no-pressure events but with a good solid teaching (even for the kids), and the other events make people feel so welcome to our city. I love the emphasis on preparing new believers for their re-entry into their own culture, and helping them become grounded in scriptures so they have that with them when they go home. I have been a conversation partner to a handful of lovely people from Asia, and I'm currently doing individual Bible studies with two brilliant Asian ladies. I would never have been connected up with them if it weren't for IFI. None of these partners became Christian believers while partnered with me, but I had the privilege of planting plenty of seeds for God to use later.
