Welcome to the Friendship International website. We're happy you've checked in to see what is happening through the ministry of Friendship International.


It Is A Beautiful Thing 

To Give Thanks!


This past Summer and this Fall, there have been many wonderful opportunities to share the story of Jesus.  But, it seems in the excitment of our busyness, we move from one activity to another without taking time to reflect and whisper, if only for a moment, “Thank you Jesus”.  And sometimes, the Lord asks us to give thanks for things we don’t find easy to say thank you for.  It’s only because of God’s amazing grace, the natural response should always be, 

“In everything give thanks, 

for this is the will

 of God in Christ Jesus”. 


It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord, but as we consider the ministry of Friendship International, we recognize we can do nothing without God, we also need to recognize He uses the feet and hands and resources of His people  to accomplish His purpose.  


So at this time of the year we especially want to express our thanks to our dear friends,  who are reading this message, for being the willing hands, for helping lead camps, for doing construction and maintenance at our Camp and Conference facilities, for sending your financial support to fund the entire ministry in several countries of the world, for sacrificing time and energy and for encouraging us to keep going under often overwhelming circumstances.  


Whatever you do, . . . do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. 

Colossians 3:17


May you have a wonderful time of Giving Thanks this year, with family and friends around the bountiful table God allows you to enjoy in our country.  God bless you.
