With another very full issue of PAX Press, you may be wondering where to begin. Well, in our first "On the Home Front" section of 2022/23, you have the opportunity to hear directly from host families—you won't want to miss their unique perspectives.

Also in the not-to-be-missed category:

- Roman (Ukraine) has a little face time with the mayor,

- Paula (Spain) enjoys an Olympic moment in Mississippi, and

- Awwaluna (Indonesia) spends some time reflecting on living with a Christian family.

You'll find all that and much more in this issue of PAX Press. Thanks to all those who submitted such thoughtful articles, and remember that is always collecting stories, anecdotes, photos, videos, and more!
