International Program

FVL is welcoming over 15 new international students this year. That means over 30 students, representing 8 countries, will have the opportunity to learn of Jesus and discover American culture. Thanks to our host families for making this possible! Continuing this year is a student mentor program that partners international students with their American classmates. FVL will celebrate International Education Week Nov. 15–20. We will conclude the week with a Culture and Cuisine event on November 20. Come and enjoy as students share food and presentations from their home countries.
