Weatherford Churches Plan Thanksgiving Meal for SWOSU International Students

Several Weatherford churches are jointly sponsoring an early Thanksgiving dinner for international students at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The free dinner will be held this Friday, November 20, at 6 p.m. at the Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) building at the corner of College and Bradley Streets in Weatherford.

Ron Thiessen, pastor at Zion Church in Weatherford, said most, if not all, of the international students will not be going home for the holidays, and the Weatherford churches wanted to do something special for the students.

SWOSU has approximately 200 international students during the current fall semester.
