Men’s Time!

Thanks to Kendall and Dave for organizing our men’s time on Saturday March 10th.  We enjoyed some intense dodge ball as well as Middle Eastern chicken at the Foxes’.  The guys shared too about learning to be wise and compassionate men after the meal.  We had five cultures represented.

February Action

February is a shorter month, but often cold and a reality check after the holidays.  To help one cope with the cold we have planned some special events.  One highlight will be the Chinese New Year Celebration sponsored by the Chinese Student and Scholars Union on Friday February 16th at 7:00pm at the Kansas State University McCain Auditorium.  Then on Wednesday, February 28th at 7:00pm in the KSU Union Courtyard the Conversation Cafe will host KSU President Richard Myers speaking on leadership.  There will be small group discussion after the talk.

Winter Break Conference

There are still about eight seats on our charter bus for the Winter Break Conference in Washington D.C.  The date for the conference is December 27 2017 through January 2 2018.  The main purpose of the conference is to learn more about having a relationship with Jesus.  There will also be opportunities to tour Washington D. C.  The cost for the conference with two meals a day included is $450 with four to a room.  Go to to register.  Then email to reserve room on the bus which is free!

Future activities to defeat cold weather discouragement

With the weather turning colder we will still have some activities to get one out of the apartment.  We are going to enjoy a bonfire on Friday night November 10th.  Then on Saturday December 2nd we will go to Bethlehem Revisited and walk through an old farm to view living scenes re-enacting the events of Jesus’ birth.  Many internationals find this walk a highlight of the holiday season.  Check out our calendar to see the details.
