The El Monte Seventh-day Adventist Church serves many of its 10,000 plus Vietnamese neighbors by offering two weekly language schools to anyone who is interested. With over 100,000 Vietnamese living in the greater Los Angeles area, many families face language challenges that the church decided to address. With many of the older generations not speaking English, it was and is a challenge for some families to communicate. To address this, El Monte SDA offers two language courses that teach younger generations how to speak Vietnamese and stay connected with their culture. By doing so they have discovered how to fill a need and serve the people in their community.
