I must say I am one of the international students who have enjoyed IFES hospitality and friendship while staying in the Netherlands. I have studied for my MA in the Netherlands. When I look back at those days the events, and the company that I have shared with the IFES team. Being in a foreign country away from my family and friends¬†by itself makes me feel a bit lonely, but thanks to the I-cafe’s cultural events, bible study group, and the host family programs of IFES made things easier. I also got the chance to introduce new friends, get the exposure to explore the Dutch culture and introduce my country and culture to others too. As a Christian, getting brothers and sisters by Christ and studying the word of God with them is so invaluable and critical for my spiritual growth. I must say those bible study and fellowship days had so much impact on my life and I value and cherish all the memories I have.
