It has been four years since Menahga housed a foreign exchange student.

So this year, Becky and Kelly Maninga and their two children Drew and Tasha are bringing back the trend.


David Revelo, an Ecuadorian 18-year-old, moved in with the Maningas last week.

"It's been exciting," Becky Maninga said.

He will be learning from the family while teaching them a few interesting facts about his culture.

"It's a win win situation," Kelly Maninga said.
