CU Friends

AKA: "Friends of Internationals - Clemson BCM"


We believe International Students, in North America are the most strategic agents to fulfill the Great Commission. 



What's Next?   


-  New Students Begin arriving SOON...


- Assisting new arrivals  

  • Prepare gift bags for the new International Students

           - Plan to join us Friday from 9AM - Noon - We'll double check each bag to make sure it's ready & complete.

           - You may find a list of "What's in the Bag?" here: Arrival_Gift_List.pdf

  • Pick up International Students at the airport and help them get settled this Fall.  

            - Registration Form: http://bit.ly/ATLgsp2CU

  • We have found new arrival assistance to be both the number 1 need of International Students and the best way to establish long-term, trusting relationships. When we serve with the Love of Jesus, hearts are opened to the message of the Gospel.



- Funding Friends of Internationals


As a Mission Service Corp (MSC) Missionary, I am responsible for raising my family‚Äôs financial support. This may come as a surprise to many of you, but we are not funded through the Cooperative Program. It is primarily families, like yours, that support us through monthly contributions. If the LORD leads, your support would be greatly appreciated. 


You can learn more about our funding structures here: funding-cu-friends


To begin supporting us is not hard. Simply pray, discuss with your family and visit: http://bit.ly/J-AVarner. From there you will enter an amount and click Give. Then you will be able to choose to make it recurring, the type (credit card, check or PayPal), & fill in your information.


We have been operating well under our budget and really need your support. Here are some numbers to help you see clearly the need: 

  • Our Monthly Income Goal: $5,400.00
  • Average Monthly Income (2016):  $3,677.75 (68% of goal)
  • Ave Monthly Income (2015):  $3,764.50 (70% of goal)

Help Us Begin the 2017-18 School Year Strong.
