“One of the things I’ve loved most about being here is all the relationships and the connections you make with people. It’s so much fun getting to meet new people and build these relationship, not that you don’t get to do that when you come for a week on a mission trip. It’s just to such a deeper extent, and you get to know so much more about people and their stories.”
