One of our volunteers (James Nolen) reflected on his experience, around the end of his time with TLG:

"I wanted to say that I really appreciated the community. There were the big things, like my surprise birthday party. There were also the little things, like a host sibling giving me a plate with a cup of coffee and a pastry. I’m also surprised at how close I have grown to my fellow volunteers and those working at TLG, and it is good to see you guys again!"
