You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Exchange Student


This is an email I got from Marge at NWSE-she's with the agency that placed Lee in our house for this school year. I thought I would post here to pass the word. Note that she said if anyone I refer does become a host family, NWSE would make a donation to my favorite charity-which of course would be Three, you can help a high school student, and orphans at the same time!

If you have any questions about the process-I'm happy to tell you what I know. Otherwise, contact Marge directly. Just be sure to let her know you heard about the program from me-so that I can get the donation directed to Three Angels (

Thanks for reading/considering it. Feel free to share with anyone else you can think of that would make a good host family.


Just a short note to all of you - NWSE is in the final 3 weeks of placing our remaining students. If you know of a family or individual that would enjoy sharing their home and life with an exchange student - even as a welcome family (4 to 6 weeks) - anywhere in the US, please let me know. We have about 25 students left - Girls from Mexico, Japan, Russia, Germany, South Korea, Brazil, Thailand and Kyrgyzstan Boys from Germany, Ukraine, Thailand, Columbia, Brazil, China, & Poland. NWSE will make a donation to your favorite charity for referals you offer that do result in a student being placed. The remaining students can be viewed on our website at signin nwsehost password hostingThank you for helping spread the word of cultural exchange

  1. Good friends of ours hosted a girl from Sweden all last school year. I'll forward this to them to see if there is any interest...
