Calexico Mission School
Students Reach Out to Soldiers
At Calexico Mission School, approximately 85% of students reside in Mexico. Rain or shine, students make their daily journey across an international border just to attend school. Recently, when the military was deployed to the border to install new barbed wire, a group of CMS students saw an opportunity to share some homemade burritos with some soldiers. Though the school’s backdrop might look differently than other schools, and the process of coming across the border is tough, the students at Calexico are finding ways to live God’s love!

Capitol City SDA Church
Partners with Community
Several years ago, the Capitol City SDA Church in Sacramento, California, decided to reach out to their immediate community. Their desire to do something to help prompted Pastor Damian Chandler to reach out to Elder Creek Elementary school, which sits less than a mile down the road from the church. Welcoming the support, the school principal requested help with the school garden. The church provided the structure for the garden, and several church members faithfully volunteered every week to work the garden with the children. By adopting their local school, this church is finding even more opportunities to live His love.
