What they say about FAF

“We just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed the Ladue Chapel trip to Hungary … Everything worked out well and we really appreciated all of your help and tips. We wanted you to know we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thanks for all your help!”

- Sharon & Ralph Thaman, Ladue Chapel Choir, August 1999

“… the trip was fabulous. I think everyone was very happy with everything about it. The concert and mass venues were wonderful, and it was very exciting to perform in such live spaces, with great audiences. Hotels were great – guides were charming, knowledgeable, and helpful. Thank you so much for all your work!”

- Mary Kay Wilson, Choir of the Sound, June 2007

“2010 marks a decade of our work with Friendship Ambassadors, an infinitely imaginative, flexible, hard-working and communicative organization dedicated to peace through cultural exchange. Thanks to the truly global perspective and expertise of the FAF staff and administration, my colleagues and I at West Virginia Wesleyan College have been able to develop a meaningful curriculum abroad during the past ten years. For any project involving the education of young people abroad in the 21st century we can certainly recommend without reservation the skill, breadth of vision, and ever evolving, comprehensive contacts of Friendship Ambassadors.”

- Dr. Devon McNamara, Professor of English, West Virginia Wesleyan College, Buckhannon, West Virginia 2010

“This trip has been beyond our expectations thanks to Friendship Ambassadors. If EagleSong’s trip had consisted of nothing but Friday’s activities, it would have exceeded all expectations and been worthwhile. Never had we been in a tour where all performances were greeted with tears. Several times I found myself thinking how much better are tears of gratitude than tears of loss. Our entire community is buzzing with the stories of EagleSong’s great trip and how much it meant to the people in Louisiana! We feel like true ‘Friendship Ambassadors’ and thank you and the entire organization for making it possible.”

- Gary Fry, EagleSong Leader, April 2006
