World Student Day
Friday 16 October 2015: you are part of something bigger!
World Student Day is an annual celebration of all that God is doing through IFES amongst students around the world. On World Student Day, students, staff and supporters pray for one another and for specific situations facing students around the world.
This year's World Student Day will take place on Friday 16 October. Will you join us to pray for students from every nation?

Make your own 3 minute prayer video!
We would like to gather short videos of students talking about their IFES group and how we can pray for them. This will be a valuable resource for praying friends all around the world, and we need you! Click here to view a few examples.
We explain here how to shoot the video and how to upload it. This is not about producing a perfect video, but to help people pray for your IFES group. Will you take part? Start shooting your videos now!
Arrange to take part in the multi-lingual chat!
For 48 hours – from the start of World Student Day in Kiritimati to its end in Honolulu – you will be able to talk with people from all over the world in English, French or Spanish.
You will be able to send and receive messages in one of these three languages – incoming messages are automatically translated for you. What a great way to facilitate global prayer!
We will give you the link to the chatroom soon, but for now, make sure you include time in the chatroom in your programme for the day.
