WE ARE PROUD TO SUPPORT THESE WONDERFUL MINISTRIES
SCOTT & HANNE LARSON
Straight Ahead Ministries exists to see Jesus Christ transform the lives of juvenile offenders. Over 1 million youth are arrested every year in the US, with 500,000 sent to one of nearly 1,400 detention centers across the country. On any day 57,000 youth are serving a sentence in a facility - the juvenile justice equivalent of jail. Family relationships, community connections, education and employment are all interrupted and negatively impacted. We believe that this time of crisis can become the first step towards a transformed life.
International Students, Inc., exists to share Christ's love with international college students. Since 1953, ISI has been training Americans to meet international students' needs. These Americans befriend international students and help them adjust to American culture.
Our culturally-sensitive and concerned staff and volunteers are reaching out to thousands of the more than 1,100,000 international students who study in the United States each year. These students, separated from family and friends, often feel lonely and isolated and are unsure about how to relate to America's culture and its people. Sadly, many international students are never invited into an American home. Many miss the opportunity to have an American friend.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word to us — something that everyone should be able to understand in their own language. But approximately 1,600 languages around the world are still waiting for a translation project to begin.
When people finally get the Bible in their own language, lives often change in amazing ways. People are transformed as they are led to Jesus Christ and a right relationship with God.
That’s why Wycliffe Bible Translators exists — to help speakers of these remaining languages get the Bible for themselves. And we won’t stop until all people have God’s Word in a language they understand.
