There are large communities of students from India, Asia, the Middle East, and other countries in many large cities, but they are also right here in Tyler, TX. There are over 1.2 million students studying in the US, and less than 25% ever get invited into an American home. 

UT-Tyler ranks in the top 26% of colleges and universities for popularity among international students, and there are currently over 30 nations represented at UT Tyler. If each one of us took the time to invite a few students into our home to share a meal, a holiday, or game night to develop a friendship, imagine the impact we could have by sharing the love of Christ that they will carry with them as they move away. For some, these friendships are so different, that they will open the door to share the gospel message, which will change their lives for eternity.
