WCA Host Families Needed: Westminster Christian Academy is looking for 5 host families for international high school students coming from Germany and Vietnam for the 2018-2019 school year. Will you consider welcoming one of these students into your home for the upcoming school year?
  • 3 Vietnamese students: (2) 10th grade boys & (1) 9th grade girl (monthly stipend available for these).
  • 2 Germans: (1) 15-year-old boy and (1) 15-year-old girl, coming as seniors (no monthly stipend).
Many devoted parents outside the U.S. are looking for opportunities for their children to expand their horizons culturally and educationally. It is a big investment and a labor of love to send their children across the world to provide such experiences. Two of our exchange students made a confession of faith in Christ while living with their host families last year. Families and nations are being influenced as Christians open their homes & hearts to these teenagers traveling far from home.
Contact Joanna Lindberg joanna.lindberg@wca-hsv.org or at 256-337-3730 if you or someone you know is interested or would like more information.
