"A part of my social mission is to have impact and influence. Participating in this experience of welcoming international students into my home and supporting their growth as they learn about new cultures has allowed me to be the conduit as they experience this country,  a whole new language, and different types of people.

With the welcoming of each student, I have been overjoyed with the opportunity they have given me to fulfill my life's work... to Love, Serve, and Give. I'm eternally grateful for the experience."
