International Friendship Partners
We welcome International Military Students and help connect them with local families as “Friendship Partners.” We do this by partnering with the IMSO at Ft. Moore and their Ambassador Program. Each year we connect with over 120 students from around 50 countries who come here for training. Students get to know local Americans and experience America in an authentic, relational way. Friendship Partners are able to learn about the student’s countries and cultures. The outcome is long-term change in the lives of students and sponsors. As they share in life together, the love of Christ is experienced. Both begin to see the world in a new way and live life more fully.

"These guys come here to train and learn. I pray they return home with more than just the training, but there are heart connections too that will last for years to come."
- Beverly Collier
"We have gained an experience of learning about different cultures by tasting their food, being exposed to their customs, and hearing first-hand their ideas, their thoughts, and their experiences.
We have gained joy in sharing our home and sharing our time and our lives with others; celebrating achievements, milestones, weddings and even new babies.
We have gained a realization that people from other cultures are really not so different from me after all because deep down they have the same hopes, the same dreams, and the same desires.
And we have gained lifelong friends who are now like family."
- Mark & Sheryl Wise
“We were surprised to find out how much of an impact the students and their families would have on our family. They become very dear to us. Our children have developed friendships with the students' children and even send videos back and forth after they have gone home.”
