“Hosting these students has been one of the most rewarding experiences in our Christian lives. Having them come and live with us is incredibly fulfilling.”- Rickey Mosser

Dear friends,

I come to you today with a heartfelt request—one that has the potential to transform lives. 

Premier Education Partners (PREP) seeks Christian families willing to open their hearts and homes to foreign exchange students attending Brentwood Christian School, Concordia High School, Hill Country Christian School, Round Rock Christian Academy, St. Dominic Savio High School, or Westwood High School during the 2024-2025 school year. As a host family, you’ll not only provide a nurturing environment and quality education but also share the good news with these young learners.

Our mission at PREP is to change lives together, and you can play a vital role in this endeavor. By participating, you’ll receive a monthly stipend and hands-on support from our dedicated team. Whether you’re a current host family or considering this opportunity for the first time, your commitment makes a difference.

Recently Priscilla and I had the privilege to have a lunch with Rickey & Patti and after lunch, we did an interview! Rickey & Patti have been our host family for 6-7 years and they have hosted five students with two graduated and two more to graduate this year. Their love of these kids is contagious as you can tell from the video. But most importantly, they carry the same mission through highs and lows and every day in between. The following script is based on the interview but edited for reading purpose while preserving their meaning. Click the link below to hear what they said.

As the new school year unfolds, our household is bustling with activity. In addition to our daughter and son, we are also hosting two students, making it a lively and dynamic environment. While the chaos might seem overwhelming, one thing remains constant – our belief in the importance of assigning chores to our children.
Hi friends,
I am writing to ask you for a favor that could make a huge difference in someone’s life.
Premier Education Partners (PREP) is looking for Christian families who can host a Chinese student at Hill Country Christian School, St. Dominic Savio High School, Concordia High School, Regents School of Austin or Westwood High School for 2023-2024 school year. The host family will get a monthly stipend as well as hands on support from the PREP team.
As you know, we are an organization with a mission to change lives together. By hosting a Chinese student, you will not only provide them with a loving home and a quality education, but also share with them the good news. 
If you are currently hosting a student, I want to say “thank you” for your faithful services! I sincerely hope you will continue next year.

The following blog was originally posted on Brentwood Christian School, one of PREP’s partner schools in Austin. 

It can be easy in today’s climate to lose sight of all the positivity and kindness that is going on all around us. The truth is, when you turn off the television and log out of social media you will begin to see all of the amazing and wonderful things happening in our community. Today we want to spotlight an act of kindness and the difference some of our students are making in and around the Austin Area.
