IMG_0982 (2)The Oasis Campus Ministry is working with Ball State Friendship Family Project in order to connect host families with International Students for special holiday meals and even to develop at least a once a month connection with these students who so often have no family or community connections in Muncie.  Right now, we need enough families to connect about 30 more students.  It is important that those who participate realize this is to help these students connect with people in a family atmosphere.  So although there may be occasions you might take them to dinner out, etc., the purpose is to invite them into your home, with your family, to connect and to learn about American family life.  In some ways, you will be their family away from family.

If you can help us bridge relationships in this way, please go to the following link and fill out the form.  Ball State will be in contact with you as soon as possible.  As part of the process, you will need to provide a reference who is not a family member (First Baptist members might want to use Pastor Wade, and Riverside Baptist, use Pastor Burton.


We are so grateful for you hospitality and openness to this.  The Oasis is trying to build a relationship with international students and this is a great way for us to get started.
