Can You Host a Foreign Student Over Christmas?


Virginia Theological Seminary (VTS) is blessed every year with a variety of international students (from Australia, Dominican Republic, Lebanon, Malawi, Tanzania to name a few.) 

One way our international students share in the surrounding community is through Christmas holiday homestays. During the seminary’s Christmas break (Dec. 21, 2016 - January 1, 2017), students with no plans to visit family or friends in their home countries or in the U.S. are hosted by local parishioners. 

This year, VTS seeks assistance to host a student for just two to three days, including Christmas Eve and Christmas Day if possible.  

If you are interested or have questions, please contact Hartley Wensing at hwensing@vts.edu or at 703-461-1735.  Thank you.
