Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS) Unit 279, an older adult unit, has completed orientation. The unit orientation was held at the New Windsor (Md.) Conference Center on the campus of the Brethren Service Center, from April 21-May 2.

The volunteers, their home congregations or hometowns, and placements are: Larry and Elaine Balliet of South Thomaston, Maine, project placement pending; Michael Colvin of La Verne (Calif.) Church of the Brethren, to serve with On Earth Peace in New Windsor, Md.; Peter and Kay Hagert of Mooresville (W.Va.)
