Benno Retamal and Amanda Rornel

“Wildwood has helped us realize that we couldn’t spend our time in worldly enterprises. Taking the course also taught us how to blend our talents—which is in dietetics and business administration—to create a chain of natural food stores in Chile.”

Alexandra Lopez

“The classes are really good, but I’d say I’ve really become fond of the physiology class. I never liked sciences before, but the physiology class has been very practical. Wildwood is pretty amazing. Not only is the campus beautiful, but people’s hearts are beautiful.”

Raúl and Neila

“Wildwood was like a fountain in our lives, it’s refreshing water opening our eyes. We finally understood was it meant to be a missionary. Now our business is a ministry, and we are helping many people through it. We couldn’t be happier as we use our talents for God.”
