What's Included


***Date Change; project was ending on September 20, it is now ending one day earlier, September 19.

Rio Lindo Adventist Academy is one of our many efforts based in North America. Each year, Maranatha works with organizations in the United States and Canada to provide volunteer labor for various construction or renovation projects. Rio Lindo Adventist Academy is located in Northern California about 60 miles north of San Francisco. It has 365 acres nestled in a bend of the Russian River. It’s about three and half miles off of Highway 101. The location makes for easy access and an ideal retreat for volunteers. Maranatha volunteers will be assisting with several renovation projects, including painting faculty houses and roofing.

We were able to help in other areas of the campus besides the two houses which got painted, two roofs installed, and five rooms renovated in the boys’ dorm.


Renovations, including light construction, painting, and roofing.
