From Kate Breukink: I am applying to spend next year abroad. Part of my application is finding a few families willing to host here. If you are interested in information, please ask me or call my parents. You will need to have a spare bedroom for the student and will have a background check conducted.
UPDATES: A new directory is being prepared. Thank you for those changes that are trickling in to the office. Keep emailing/calling with new information, whether email or phone changes. We have duplicate emails for some and need to know which is best to use. For your adult children, if they prefer a listing as “Friends of Immanuel”, or have their own listing, please let us know. Thanks.
