Moreno Valley Community News

Host Families Needed!
Can you help me. I have a group of Japanese nursing students arriving from Japan on 12/21-12/28 1999. They are coming to visit Moreno Valley and live with American families in the community and find out what American holidays and family life is like. We give out families a thank you stipend for opening their homes. They students attend English class at Shepherd of the Valley church and will spend the holiday with their American family.
Loving families willing to open their homes are still needed. Please contact me for more information if you have an interest in hosting a student at this time or anytime in the future.
Thank you,
