    You can be part of learning about God’s heart for his people right here at home. From July 25 through August 1, Salt & Light Christian Fellowship is hosting a program known as “Welcome the World!” This is an opportunity for people from other churches in the United States to join with Kossuth in the work God has given us to do among the nations right here in the Greater Lafayette area ... a short-term cross-cultural experience of sorts.

    The program involves several different aspects of Christian living and service which are important to the discipleship process:

    1. Learning. Each day there will be teaching on cross-cultural competency and ministry. This will include Bible teaching and cultural presentations from international friends.
    2. Eating. Each day cultural meals will be served which will remind the participants of the places they have heard about in the cultural presentations.
    3. Service. Coming alongside the SLCF ministry team to prepare the facility the Lord has entrusted to us as a ministry location for the coming school year through deep-cleaning and “turn over” as residents move out and preparation is made for new students.
    4. Engagement. Throughout the week there will be opportunities to interact with students/scholars who interact with SLCF in some way.

    How can you be involved in the Welcome the World! program?

    1. Participate. If you are able, clear your calendar for all or part of the week of July 26 when most of the work will take place. Join the community of believers coming from other states to get to know and work alongside fellow believers.
    2. Provide. If you are unable to participate by giving many hours, please help by providing a meal. SLCF can provide the funds to purchase the materials ... all you need to do is the shopping and the preparation.
    3. Pray. Please pray that the Lord will use this week in the lives of those who are coming and those whose lives will be touched as a result.
