A seminar designed to educate the participants on the significant differences between the home buying process in the U.S. and what they were accustomed to in Brazil will be held from 4-6 p.m. Feb. 15 at Village Baptist Church, Building 9. This new knowledge will overcome any intimidation felt due to dealing with the unknown.
