Founders of Princeton ISI
Global Specialists/International Team

Princeton, NJ

Throughout their many years of ISI ministry, the Desais have impacted the lives of thousands of international students studying at one of the most prestigious universities in the United States. They have seen many come to know Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

John and Aruna started with a simple vision to obey God in reaching out to international students. They continue to have that simple vision for the future.

John stated that To forget what is behind and stretch forward to what is ahead. That’s what our goal is. We want to be faithful to God and we want to serve Him with all our heart, our mind, our soul, and our strength.

And we want many to come into the Kingdom, added Aruna. We want to focus on prayer and on sharing the Gospel and on discipling the internationals who are here at Princeton.

What started as a simple obedience to His call has grown into a life-partnership in serving Christ, in multiplying their ministry through others, and in seeing the lost international students come to know Jesus and return home to serve him around the world.
