Senior Vice President, Synovus, Retired
"One of the joys of volunteering in Columbus is being able to support the outstanding efforts of International Friendship Ministry. I had no idea our region was blessed with such a large international community. Ron and Carole Collins give volunteers the opportunity to serve as foreign missionaries without every packing a suitcase!!! Supporting IFM sends hundreds of internationals back to their native countries with an exposure to the gospel, as well as a good dose of Southern Hospitality. It is entirely possible that one of the international military serviceman that we hosted could be the political leader of his country one day! What an awesome opportunity we have to get to know these unique visitors to our city!!! "
