Host and International Student! West Lutheran's International program continues to grow!  For the 2014-2015 school year, West will have 13 international students from 6 different countries.  What an amazing opportunity and blessing for the school.  Last year two students were baptized at West and hopefully more will be in the following years.  It is incredible to see their journey throughout their year or years at West.  Many of the students come from little to no background in Christianity.  At West they attend an Introduction to Christianity Bible class with fellow international students, have chapel, and live with host families like you.  It truly is an amazing witnessing opportunity each day with these students.  What a great mission!

We are reaching out to you, to help us with this mission!  We have one student yet to place – a male student, Jacob, from South Korea. He is excited to be traveling here next month. Please prayerfully consider hosting an Jacob this year, or another international student in the future. One of our students for next fall still need host families.  Please prayerfully consider hosting one of these students so that they may attend West and be fed this life saving word.

There is a $500 per month reimbursement stipend to help cover additional costs of hosting a student.  If transportation is an issue for you, there may be a carpool in your area that could help.  We also have many host families who have hosted and would be happy to answer questions directly as well Melissa Baures, International Student Coordinator. Please contact Melissa at or 763-509-9378, ext. 50.
