We have an exciting opportunity to help out some students from Germany and France.

we received the bellow email from EMF today.

Friends of Cris and Coli had a Student 2 years ago and enjoyed their company the whole year and are still great friends with her.

In the Faith office we have a list with pictures of the students which are seeking homes for the school year. Email if you are interested in looking at the list.


Dear Sir or Madam,

We are a small non-profit, foreign-exchange student organization looking for caring host families in your community, and we need your help!  We have 22 Lutheran students from Germany, Norway and France that would like to come for the 2013-2014 school year and are waiting for their match with a volunteer host family. The state of the economy makes it difficult to locate  volunteer families for our students. I do believe that sharing the life of an American host family and going to school contributes to a better world understanding and is an unforgettable experience for both the student and the host family. American students benefit from meeting  foreign students.  In the past, Lutheran churches have been very helpful in assisting us in finding volunteer host families. We would appreciate it if you could help us by making an announcement at church, forwarding my e-mail to families in your church community, or printing the following information in your church bulletin.

OPEN YOUR HEART AND HOME  to a German or French exchange student  for the coming 2013-2014 school year 

Volunteer host families (with or without children) are needed to provide food, a bed and a loving home for the coming school year, one or two semesters, starting in August.  EMF students have medical insurance, spending money for their personal expenses and expect to share their host family’s daily life including household responsibilities.  They speak English, are well-screened and eager to experience life in America. Their stay here is sponsored and supervised by EMF (Educational Merit Foundation), a non-profit, educational exchange program.  For more information on EMF students, please call Marie-Claude Dijoud now at 1-800-467-8363 or visit our web site at
