According to the Weather Channel, hot, molten lava from the Kilauea volcano is slowing creeping toward 900 homes in the city of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Salvation Army gets help from local volunteers to open a community center!

The Imperial Valley Press in the San Diego, California area reported some great news this week!

A Salvation Army-owned building at the corner of 4th Street and Ross Avenue in El Centro is being transformed into a community center with some volunteer manpower from area churches.

For the last dozen years or so, the building was leased to a dialysis center. After it left, the Army decided to turn the building into a place where folks can come for parenting or English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, or children’s programs in the arts and music.

Captain Jerry Esqueda – our leader in El Centro – has a big vision for what God can do with the building on 4th and Ross. He wants it to be a safe haven for kids, where they can build confidence and learn about life’s options. He’s even hoping that one day they’ll be able to add a recording studio for budding young musicians in the area.
