Meal with a Local Friend

At Connect The Nations, we believe that food is a great way to connect when making new friends. We have seen many beautiful friendships form as the result of people getting together and sharing a meal with one another, especially in homes. If you are willing to host an international friend for a meal, or if you are an international friend desiring to connect, click the links below to get started.

Conversation English Practice

Conversation Partner

When people are able to speak together, they build friendships that can last a lifetime. We at Connect The Nations are committed to helping make sure our international friends are able to develop their language proficiency in comfortable environments. We are looking for both volunteers who want to help international friends practice English, as well international friends who want more practice. 

our vision

Connect The Nations desires to see people from all nations connected to Jesus. It is our belief that the influence of Jesus causes people to become more intentional, honest, hopeful, loving, and hospitable. We believe these character qualities build stronger, kinder, and more faithful relationships, and we want to help people from all over the world develop these qualities so they can give them to others.

While Jesus may be our key influence, we at Connect The Nations welcome people from all faith backgrounds to utilize any service we offer or attend any event we have. It is our desire for all the international friends we have to have access to whatever and whoever they need to have a safe, comfortable, and fulfilling stay in the United States, no matter if it’s 50 days or 50 years.
