The goal of Heart for Internationals is to demonstrate God’s love by serving and caring for international students working in the Pigeon Forge & Sevierville area. International students obtain a Work-Travel visa for 4 months, and then they return to their country to continue their studies. Hearts for Internationals hosts a student center a couple of days per week where meals are served and international students can hang out. Summer missionaries will come alongside this ministry to help host trips into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park (hikes, picnics, and scenic drives), to celebrate Christian holidays with internationals, and to assist international students as much as possible with any needs that arise. Approximately 300 students from over 15 countries are served through the summer.
