Los Angeles is one of the North America Mission Board’s Send Cities. With a population of 1.9 million people, the Greater Los Angeles area is home to the largest population of ethnic, cultural, and language groups in the United States.
Send Los Angeles Coordinator Robby Pitt says, “The world really does live in LA.” According to NAMB’s website, Los Angeles is not a one-strategy-fits-all city. It is 5-fold: universities, inner cities, beach cities (suburbia), people groups, and Hollywood.
Riverside, where the Woolstenhulmes live, is 50 miles east of Los Angeles. The San Gabriel Mountains overlook the University of California, Riverside, campus. This area enjoys a year-round temperate climate with warm, dry summers, and mild winters. The Santa Anna River runs just west of the city.
