International students form friendships that last a lifetime during their year at Everest. This generation’s in-person experience was ended abruptly, but students continue to build those friendships from afar. International program staff are actively working with students, supporting them academically, and planning virtual student activities. For their most recent campaign, the boys and girls prayed for one of their peers for two weeks. On the final day they sent a message, prayer, or Bible quote to their prayer partner.
