The Nations Have Come to Us – Thomas Fisher

Posted: January 12, 2015 in Uncategorized

God’s heart for the nations is made clear throughout Scripture from Genesis to Revelation. God has literally brought the ‘nations’ to us right here in Columbia, SC as students from across the world come to study at USC. As Shandon College Ministry, we want to be a part of God’s mission to reach a people from of every tongue, tribe, and nation. Here are three very tangible ways that YOU can help:

 

  1. Tuesday, January 13 we are meeting at 11:00 a.m. on the 2nd floor of Russell House in the lobby outside of room 205 to pass out cards advertising our International Ministry. We are going to spread out across campus and invite internationals to both our trip to Charleston this Saturday, and our weekly International Sunday School that meets at 631 Harden. If you get out of class at 11:20 there will still be time to join us!

 

  1. Every Thursday at the BCM on Main Street there is a FREE lunch for international students at 12:00 p.m. From 12:00-1:00 students eat, and from 1:00-2:00 there is a time of English practice. This is great way to meet internationals, while also getting to enjoy some great free food.

 

  1. Possibly the most personal way that you can engage an international student is through EPI’s conversational partner program. You commit to practicing English one hour a week with an international student for nine weeks. In the past, many great friendships have been formed simply through signing up for this program. Please prayerfully consider signing up! More information may be found through the link below:

Last semester, we had a consistent five attenders of our new International Sunday School class that met Sundays at 10:00 a.m. at 631 Harden. God worked in both their lives and our own as we served them. We are fully expecting God to do huge things this semester. Please join us in engaging international students with the Gospel for the sake of their joy and the glory of God.

 

“May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, that your way may be known on earth, and your saving power among all nations. Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!” – Psalm 67:1-3
