Host families needed for Chinese students


Are you looking to go to China, but cannot afford it? If so, then let a local organization bring China to you. For the third summer in a row, Network 153, a local non-profit ministry, is teaming up with Pine Ridge Bible Camp in Cedar Springs to host an English Immersion camp. Tim and Shelley Bauer, directors of Network 153, have years of experience working with foreign exchange students. Their experience has given them a Christian heart of love for the nations.

On July 19 thru August 8, 67 high school students and 6 adult chaperones will be coming to our area from Lu He International High School in Beijing, China. The Chinese students will spend the first two weeks in host families where they will attend ESL classes at Cedar Springs Middle School, as well as experiencing some local attractions. During the third week the students will enjoy what many American children do at a typical summer camp. Pine Ridge Bible Camp is looking for American middle and high school students to come join the Chinese students the week of August 1-6 for “Teen Culture Explosion” week. It’s a great way to experience another culture in your own backyard.

If you are interested in becoming a host family, contact Tim or Shelley Bauer at (616) 799-4935 or email them at network153usa@gmail.com. Also, contact Kevin Grifhorst, Director of Pine Ridge Bible Camp, at (616) 696-8675 if your children are interested in experiencing a summer mission trip right in our own backyard.
