Whether we know it or not, the world is at our door!  Thankfully, there are those who are already being salt, light and love toward those who have come from around the world. During this weekend may we learn from our Chelten missionaries and ministry leaders, not only what they are doing, but how we might partner with them in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with the “foreigner.” May we not miss this opportunity to hear how we might practically love and serve internationals at our door!

“Why have I found such favor in your eyes that you notice me – a foreigner?” (Ruth 2:10 b)
