After months of very intense and gruelling filming, ‘Home Away From Home’ has been completed!
The 25th Anniversary of the Reach Programme was celebrated with a "powerful and moving" reunion of former Reach Volunteers and Reach Supervisors, on Saturday 13th Janaury 2018.
Many former and present Reach Volunteers were able to contribute to an amazing day that took place at the Hayes Chrsitian Conference Centre, in Derbyshire.
Rowland Hughes, the Reach Coordinator for the past 15 years, said:
"The Reach Reunion really surprised me. I was very aware what the programme would be and who would take part, and yet it ended up being a far more powerful and moving celebration of how God has used the Reach Programme to work in people’s lives and reach the nations over the last 25 years than I was expecting.
The International Student Mission Housing Trust (ISMHT) exists to provide affordable housing to mission workers who are reaching international students for Jesus.
Our aim is to not only make housing financially viable, but also suitable for the vital ministry of hospitality to students. The Trust is managed by unpaid Trustees, and was set up in early 2017 by Friends International as a separate charitable trust.

"We are so grateful to the many people who have been part of this project and enabled us to move in to Pearl Close. It seems a long time ago when the idea of finding a house in Cambridge for Friends International was first discussed and yet we have seen the Lord provide in numerous ways over the last year. We are grateful ultimately to God for providing for us.
