I have really enjoyed meeting the volunteers that serve with our program. BYU has many good students who want to do good and it's been uplifting to interview them for the program. The culmination of this was our reflection meeting, we had 2 volunteers come, which was honestly more than we were expecting. Everyone went around and shared their experiences serving and the impact it has had on the 7 of us there; this is why I serve, so that BYU students can find the joy I do in serving.
