HOST FAMILIES NEEDED JULY 18-21 FOR 6-8TH GRADE
CHINESE STUDENTS. Rachel & Rowin Mulder are bringing 26
Chinese young people to Michigan for an English language and
American culture experience while nurturing character development
and leadership skills. Students will arrive in Grand Rapids on Friday
evening July 18, and will depart for South Haven on Monday
morning July 21, so we are looking for host families in this area for
just one weekend! These students are excited to spend time with an
American family and learn more about our way of life. Host families
can do simple, fun activities with their student(s) on Saturday and
Sunday such as play board games, go for a nature walk, or go into
town. This is a great opportunity to share your values through your
daily life! You don’t need to have teenagers living at home in order to
host! For more information please contact Rachel and Rowin Mulder
at 616-217-1735 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
