“We did the [Exile Night] with our youth group last fall. We camped out on our farm between the woods and the corn field in a small hay field. We set up a couple of tents, but most of the kids slept outside! It was a moving experience and gave the kids a greater appreciation of what exiled Christians might have to endure. Thanks for the amazing resource.” — Youth leader
Student groups all across the United States have experienced a small part of what displaced believers face every day through “I Am N” Exile Night events. The students eat what the refugees eat, sleep how they sleep, and are inspired by their courageous faith.
Exile Night is an overnight event that can be done indoors or outdoors. Whether inside or outside, the goal of Exile Night is for students to gain an understanding of what Christian refugees experience, and to be encouraged by their faith in Christ.
