“My name is Becky Maloy and my family has hosted through Global Friendships for three years. When we started hosting, we didn’t quite know what to expect. We were naturally apprehensive but just took the experience day by day. At the end of our first experience, we were taken by how we impacted our student and how our student impacted us. We learned just as much from them as they did from us. Our second student has already made a return trip to stay with us and our current student is also making plans for a return visit. I am so thankful that we opened our hearts and home to our Spanish students who have now become family. We also value the relationships that we have built with other host families. I highly recommend this program to anyone considering hosting! This experience has changed our lives!”.
