Walter Johnston’s ministry is focused on the thousands of international students and scholars at Penn State University Park. His previous years of missionary service in the Philippines (ending in 2010) uniquely helped prepare him and his wife, Sue, for this ministry.
“In the Philippines, we were the outsider, and we had to work in a second language as the international students here often struggle with English,” says Walt. “Yes, talking is slower, but laughing with them is frequent! We love demonstrating the love of Christ to international students. They are often curious and open to hear about Christianity, the Bible, and a spiritual life.”
