We are a group of Christian individuals from within the Emporia community who care deeply about your having a positive stay in the United States. Simply put, we exist for the sole purpose of touching the lives of international students with the love of God. It is our desire to promote valuable friendships among people from different parts of the world. We want nothing more than for your stay in Emporia to be a rewarding experience.
In order to accomplish our purpose, we provide a variety of activities which may be of interest to you. these include cultural day trips to regional events and sites of interest, *First Friends* (an American friendship program), regular social gatherings, Bear Trap Ranch (an annual trip to spend a week in the Colorado Rockies during Christmas break), *Friday Night Friends* (a bi-weekly meal and gathering in the home of an American family), the *World Fellowship* (internationals and Americans who gather weekly to study the Bible), and the *International Christian Fellowship* (a bi-weekly gathering of international Christians).
