July 18 thru August 6
Once again, Network 153, Pine Ridge Bible Camp in Cedar Springs, MI, and Lu He Cultural Training Center in Beijing, China are partnering together this Summer to bring approximately 31 Chinese high school students to America. It will be a three week program; two weeks in host families and one week at Pine Ridge Bible Camp with American students for a cross-cultural experience. This would be a great opportunity for your family, and church youth groups, to reach out in the love of Jesus Christ right here in your own backyard. Our firm belief is that in order for there to be world peace we must all be introduced to the Prince of Peace.
The students from China will be here Wednesday, July 18 thru Monday, August 6. On July 23-28 they will experience what many American youth have at summer camp. This is a great time for American and Chinese students to come together and learn about each others cultures. It could be a life changing experience for all involved.
While in your home, the Chinese students will participate in ESL (English as a Second Language) classes at the Cedar Springs Middle School, and go on 3 fun excursions. This is a unique opportunity for the students to experience an American family's daily life, and for your family to be introduced to those who come from a different culture on the other side of the world. Let us know if you are interested in opening your hearts and homes to our friends from China by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
May the Lord bless you!
