Effective ministry requires trusting relationships. With 1,400 - 2,000 international students now at Clemson, that is an impossible task for a couple of missionaries.
So, we need YOU to help us care for students with a personal touch.
After more than 10 years of ministry, we have found assistance for new arrivals to be both the number 1 need of International Students and the best way to establish the long-term, trusting relationships required for the Gospel to flourish.
2) Understanding of Friends of Internationals
3) Gain Pastoral and Church Support

Help us greet all the NEW international students with a smile and a whole lot more!
Airport pick up is the easy part.
For the rest, you will need the support of
your local church and others through

We intend to add more ways for You to connect with international students.
And so are we at Friends of Internationals. It’s all about relationships: with students, with God, with each other.
I have a dream! Thousands of families mobilized out of hundreds of churches, serving ALL of the international students at Clemson very well.
Why? Because together, with God’s help, I believe we can share the Good News of Jesus Christ with each and every International Student.

Read about why we host students here:
Jesus loves international students (and you) even more
than I do. He desires that they have a way to know Him.
You could be their link. He may be inviting you into the experience of sharing His love.
Some things to consider:
What does it mean to truly be thankful?
How many people are already coming to your home?
How many outsiders can you comfortably accommodate?
Let us help you:
prepare yourself and your family for the experience.
with ideas about sharing the Good News about Jesus with your guests.
