He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner. And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt. --Deuteronomy 10:18-19
God calls us to remember the great love that He showed us when we were foreigners to His Kingdom and to reach out to foreigners living among us with this same kind of love! There is an area of the world called the 10/40 window where 2.5 billion people remain ureached with the gospel, meaning they have zero access to having any way of finding out about Christ, because there is no one to tell them, or there is no Bible in their language or no church that speaks their language. What is amazing is that each year over 850,000 international students come to the US to study and 62% of them are coming from the 10/40 window!
God is literally bringing the unreached people of the world to our backyards! By investing in the lives of international students studying at Harding University, we have a tremendous opportunity to impact the world without ever having to leave the city limits.
