Recipe for Sharing by Deborah McFarlane-Truitt

A

important to her, though, was finding opportunities to share the health message with those outside of the church. “I visit the Wildwood website weekly to find new recipes,” Rosie says. “Then I prepare the vegan recipes for my family and friends.” Her ministry is to use good cooking and the health message to share God’s Word. Wildwood has been Rosie’s inspiration, as they use modern media to communicate God’s simple message of healing. And for Wildwood, Rosie is just one example of the way techology reaches people around the world. p

s a parole officer in Moreno, California, Rosie Duarte knew very little about Wildwood Lifestyle Center and Hospital in Georgia. Then at church one Sabbath, an announcement about the October Medical Seminar piqued her interest. As soon as she got home, she looked up Wildwood’s website to find out more. Rosie signed up just two days before the seminar began. Quickly rearranging her schedule, she packed her bags for the cross-country flight to Wildwood. There she learned about disease prevention and also grew closer to the Lord. When she returned home, Rosie shared all she had learned with her friends at church. What was more

All-Around Education D ave was introduced to the Great Commission in the eighth grade. As he grew to understand it, he felt a personal responsibility to do his part to share the gospel with all nations. But he was not sure where or how to begin. His parents supported his purpose, and while they were searching for an academy for him, they discovered Laurelbrook Sanitarium and School in Dayton, Tennessee. Looking it over, they saw that it provided spiritual, academic, and vocational training for an all-around

education. It looked like the perfect school for Dave. Now, four years later, Dave is almost ready to graduate. He has received practical training to prepare him to be a self-supporting missionary. He has learned how to raise his own crops and build his own house. Working and training at Laurelbrook’s nursing home, he has developed the skills to treat the sick and care for injuries as a certified nursing assistant. He will also graduate with a solid academic base, and the spiritual retreats, along with his active participation in church over the years, have drawn him closer to the Lord. “When I leave Laurelbrook, I will be sad, but I know that I have received the training I needed for serving God,” Dave says. “Laurelbrook will always be like a second home.” p
