El Dorado Adventist School Students Get Excited About Helping Others
After hearing how they could help their fellow students at Holbrook Indian School and Chinle SDA School, the El Dorado Adventist School kids responded enthusiastically. Seven of them (pictured above, left to right) described their thoughts:
Sophia Benavides (7th grade) - I brought shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and deodorant. I am so happy we collected a ton of stuff. I think we did an amazing job for the size of our school.
Natalia Dyroff (1st grade) - I brought a stuffed bear and toothpaste and toothbrushes to help all the kids. I was really excited and surprised about how much stuff we collected!
Riley Easterbrook (6th grade) - I knew I wanted to help after I heard the story about the boy [Adrian] who didn't want to go to HIS. I was glad to see that everyone really cared about the students and brought lots of stuff.
Carter Gatling - (3rd grade) I wanted to help after I heard about how hard it is to get water on the reservation. It was amazing to see how much everyone brought to help the students!
Parker Gatling (kindergarten) - I really wanted to help because I know the students needed blankets and socks. I was really surprised that there was so much stuff!
Elle Norton (2nd grade) - We got toothpaste for the students. My mom's a dental hygienist so I know it's important. Someday I would like to be a missionary so I can talk about God and help people.
Josh Overton (6h grade) - The reason I wanted to help get supplies to the Holbrook students is because it must be hard when your water is toxic, and you have to wait for it to come in trucks. My grandpa Steve went on a mission trip and someday I want to do the same.
