2017 Chinese New Year


On January 28 a number of KML's international students and their host families attended a special worship service and potluck to celebrate the Chinese New Year at St. John's Lutheran Church, Wauwatosa, where they were able to enjoy lots of good food and hear God's Word in their native language.


The Chinese and Korean New Year was also celebrated at KML from January 30 - February 3 with fun lunchtime activities such as trivia and chopstick challenges between our international students and their American friends.
