Thankfully, several people have stepped up and helped us satisfy our need for hosts. Currently, every student has a place to stay with a generous host family. However, despite the generosity of these hosts, these conditions are less than ideal in as much as several families have opted to host multiple students, stretching their comfort and compromising the experience of the students who will be staying with them. I don’t say this to diminish their gracious accommodation, but only to encourage those who are willing to host, but have not yet committed, to join us and lighten the load of those who have taken on more than they should have to.
As you may be able to tell, I’m trying to word this very carefully. Hosting students from Hanno is much more of a reward than a burden, and I don’t want participating as a host family to sound like a hardship. True, hosting has all the responsibilities of having a house guest, but this house guest gives back more than you can imagine. Many families who have hosted in the past are excited and eager to host again. With that in mind, I encourage you to host if you are available. It is a fantastic experience that you won’t regret.
