Free AudioBook Chapter: Engaging International Students and Welcoming Refugees
Could God use ordinary me to change the world?
June is Refugee Awareness Month! In the middle of diapers, dishes, papers, or presentations, deep down, we long to live a life of purpose, with a bit of adventure. But if we do something, we think we have to do everything—and do it in Africa. In Across the Street and Around the World, Jeannie Marie shows us we can change the world right where we already live, work, play, and study—by learning to grow genuine, spiritually deep friendships with people from other countries, cultures, and faiths.
Celebrate, pray for, and welcome the world’s most vulnerable by listening to this free AudioBook chapter “Engaging International Students and Welcoming Refugees” from the fun, how-to book Across the Street and Around the World: Following Jesus to the Nations in Your Neighborhood…and Beyond. Change the world, from your front door!
If you enjoy the Audiobook chapter, consider investing in the whole book! In a refreshing “you-can-do-this-too” style, you’ll find clear steps, try-it sections, and beautifully crafted prayers. I’ll gently guide us away from common cultural missteps, so you can offer Jesus in a winsome way, while honoring culture, faith, and family. With confidence, courage and compassion, we’ll start small, start soon, and start somewhere we already are, by first going across the street—which just may lead us around the world!
“Jeannie Marie shares a lifetime of invaluable experience with the rest of us. Her book is a treasure trove of insights and practical resources for engaging the nations in our own backyard and to the ends of the earth!” —David Garrison, author of Church-Planting Movements and Wind in the House of Islam
