Christmas International House

Img11 Christmas International House is a Christian ministry designed to offer
hospitality to international students during the Christmas Holidays.
Through the hospitality of churches and civic groups, we witness to the
reality that, behind diverse manners of dress, religious affiliations
and political ideologies, everyone stands together as one human family.
This peacemaking program gives students an opportunity to visit in an
American home and to become acquainted with different areas of the
country. It gives them a chance to express their feelings about the
United States and find explanations for cultural differences they have
observed. Students and hosts develop friendships and learn how to
exchange ideas and develop relationships with people who come from
countries with different ideologies.

The Christmas International House program runs from December 19, 2009 to January 2, 2010.    Some local programs have elected to change these dates slightly.   

Applications will be accepted between October 1 and November 20 or until all programs are filled. All international students or scholars studying at a college or university in the United States (non-immigrants, 18 years of age or older on an "F" or "J" visa) are invited to apply.

Some programs are able to accommodate married couples with one or two children.  Check out the individual program listings for more details.

God bless us, every one!
