Candlewood has a long history of helping international students. There are over 5,000 of them from over 130 countries on college campuses in Omaha and Lincoln, NE. We do our best to provide practical assistance to international students as they begin their new life in the United States, as well as attempt to provide a family atmosphere, since these students are so far away from their own families. We also help international students learn about the Bible, and Jesus Christ. Many of the students we meet come having never heard of Jesus, and yet some leave as missionaries and church planters to their home countries and other countries!
