What’s a talent or hobby of yours that people might not know about?

Stat: Woodworking, fishing

Why do you love volunteering at Beacon?
 I get to come back year after year (even though I'm old now), and get to encourage the campers and teach them while exploring the great outdoors
Stat: I get to encourage and challenge the campers in their faith at a very pivotal time in their lives.
