Mission To Japan | Christian Host Families Needed!
Date(s) - 21 Jan 2013 until 16 Feb 2013
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Northland, A Church Distributed
Mission To Japan has an urgent need for several Christian host families to be a part of their mission work to share the gospel with Japanese college students. Host families are needed to host one Japanese college student each, from Feb. 19 ~ March 14 (but students will be away for a spring break retreat in Daytona from March 4 ~ 8). Most students speak enough English to get by. Host families drop their student off at Northland Church in Longwood at 9:15 a.m. Monday ~ Friday, and pick their student up in the evenings (usually between 5:30 ~ 6:30 p.m.).
The staff of Mission To Japan (Warren and Yukari Griffith) will provide guidance through the whole program, and will meet with students each weekday for classes and sightseeing. Host family responsibilities include providing a guest room, getting your student to and from the church on weekdays, providing meals, and just loving them. This is a great and practical way to help fulfill the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations. The whole family will enjoy interacting with your Japanese student too.
We’ll have a host family orientation before the students arrive to equip host families for the best experience possible. Most of the students are not Christians but are open to the Bible studies we’ll provide (in Japanese) and know that the host families are Christians. Most students join to experience American culture, practice English, and enjoy sightseeing in Orlando (Mission To Japan takes the students to the theme parks so you don’t have to).
