Every summer, approximately 4,000 university students from 59 countries come to work on Cape Cod on the J-1 work and travel (WAT) program. The students are vetted by their university, by an agent in their country, by a U.S. sponsor organization, and by Homeland Security. Cape Cod businesses work with the U.S. sponsor organizations to hire these students for approximately 3 months. After the work contract is completed, most of these students will travel in the U.S.
in the spring, approximately 4,000 adults from 6 countries come to work on Cape Cod through the H-2b visa program. Those on the H-2b program must have been recommended to a business by someone already on the program. The business sends paperwork to the government to send for these workers. An agency in their country helps them with their visa. They are vetted by their agencies and Homeland Security. A work contract can last between 6 – 9 months.
we believe they are world-changers!
meet our world-changers!
In the summer of 2014, Mika, and her boyfriend, Yelnur arrived from Kazakhstan. They attended two of the Hello Summer J-1 dinners and heard the gospel. One morning in July, we received a frantic phone call from Mika. The previous night, Yelnur was hit by a car and passed away. We took Mika to New York City to meet with her U.S. sponsor and the ambassador from Kazakhstan. Then, for 20 hours, Mika flew back to Kazakhstan knowing that Yelnur was in the cargo hold below her.
The next spring, Mika contacted us by Skype. The previous night, she had a troubling dream. An orthodox priest was speaking to her in Russian and making the sign of the cross. She spoke back to him in Kazakh. Both languages are spoken in Kazakhstan. “Mummy,” Mika asked Cathy, “What was the priest doing with his hand?”. Cathy shared the gospel with her. “But Mummy, why would I have such a dream? I am a Muslim!”
A few months later. we were talking with an associate pastor from one of the Evangelical churches working with us. The night before Yelnur died, Yelnur met a member of his congregation that converted to Christianity from Islam. This young man shared with Yelnur for over an hour about Jesus.
In the summer of 2014, Kantida, Parawee, and Sutasinee stayed in our home. We loved having them with us! They will always be our Thai daughters. We explored the Cape together and they went to several events hosted by participating churches. Being Buddists, they had many questions about the gospel. We have kept in contact with them via Facebook.
Parawee was studying international law. in order for her to become a lawyer, she had to take what is equivalent to the Bar exam. Before this exam, she was talking with both of us about her fear of failure. We prayed with her. She failed. In 6 months, she was studying to take it again. She failed. At this point, she was ready to give up. We encouraged her to keep trying and that we would keep praying. Today, Parawee is an international lawyer in Bangkok, Thailand.
