Friendly Exchange is looking for families to host Guatemalan exchange students this fall. Chesterton Academy families have hosted several students through this program in the past, and it has been a great blessing to them all! Please prayerfully consider hosting a student. The student lives with a family for 11 weeks before returning home to Guatemala.
