Housing a Japanese? Don’t Panic!
Seminar presented by Roberta Stephens at the 2016 Pacific Northwest RJC Conference.
This workshop reviews the rich experience in store for an American family when they host a Japanese student. It includes suggestions about what kind of a family should consider hosting, preparation before the student arrives, how American family customs affect the student, and preparing the heart of a student to open up to God. Suggestions will be made for fielding problems that may arise. Those who have hosted a Japanese student are welcome to share their experiences as time permits.
