We are very excited to hear scripture readings and prayers in NINETEEN different languages. The program is a community event in which we ask international people to read scripture and pray in their own native language. This will not only give the opportunity to the internationals to know that we care for their countries and ask for peace for their nations, but will give locals, from different churches and organizations the opportunity to gather together to pray for these nations. After finishing the readings and prayers in the auditorium, we will have 19 different stations in the building each representing a nation. People will go through these stations and pray for those specific nations. We will have some information about Christians and their conditions in that country.
Countries represented include: Brazil, Burma, China, Ecuador, Ghana, HAITI (Acts 17:26-28); Israel, Kenya, Korea, Malaysia (John 3:16-17); Mexico, Mongolia, Nepal, Nigeria (Matthew 12:18-21); Palestine, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam (Psalm 95:6-7).

Haiti Benefit Concert
Come support Haiti by attending a campuswide Haiti benefit concert, where IU performers will donate their talents and gifts to Haiti in concert form. All donations will be sent to Global Aid Network (GAIN), an outreach organization that works in partnership with Campus Crusade for Christ ministries.
The event will feature several students and alums from both the Jacobs School of Music and the Department of Theatre and Drama, including two bands, several soloists and an award-winning harpist, among other performances.
