Laurelwood Students Travel to El Salvador

Eleven Laurelwood students, two staff members, and their pastor recently spent three weeks working, preaching, and teaching in El Salvador.

At Hogar Escuela Adventista orphanage, they built additions onto houses for 150 children, helped at the local Adventist elementary school, and assisted in a clinic.

In the evenings, the group held evangelistic meetings in the village of Agua Caliente, where Pastor Gleason preached to 50-80 adults while Laurelwood students held meetings for 50-60 children—leading to four baptisms and decisions by others to study for baptism. •
