International Friends Retreat Bags





WorldSong Missions Place

October 5-6, 2018


Alabama WMU is working alongside the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions Office of Collegiate & Student Ministries in their presentation of the International Friends Retreat again this fall. International Friends Retreat is designed to help international students attending college in Alabama make American friends and adjust to life in the United States.


How can we help?

  • We have the chance to be one of the first touches of Jesus to an international college student by filling a gift bag to be presented to them at the International Friends Retreat. 
  • Order your FREE reusable shopping bag(s) from Alabama WMU for assembling your gift bag(s) by calling our office at
    1-800-264-1225 or completing the form below.

  • Each gift bag should be packed in the bag provided by Alabama WMU and should include:
  • • package of at lease 4 bars of soap (please do not unwrap) or 1 medium container of liquid body wash
    • shampoo & conditioner
    • toothbrush & toothpaste
    • deodorant
    • 1 package each of pens & pencils
    • 1 box of individually wrapped assorted crackers or cookies
    • personal note from you and/or your church
    • Collegiate & Student Ministries office will provide a Bible for each participant, so please do not include that
  • Drop off assembled bags  to the Alabama WMU office no later than September 20, 2018 at 1404 Fairview Avenue, Prattville, AL 36066
