Walter Bond

(1879-1914). Pioneer Seventh-day Adventist worker in Spain. He was born in California, where his parents became SDA s when he was a child. Near the turn of the century he was preaching in California and, as some reports indicate, among the Spanish-speaking settlers in Arizona. In 1902 he and his brother Frank volunteered to go to Spain to pioneer SDA work there. Before leaving the U.S., he married Leola Gerow. They arrived in Barcelona, Spain, in June 1903, and later that year he with his brother Frank opened a boys’ school in the town of Sabadell nearby. From then until his death in 1914, with the exception of one year (1904-1905), he directed SDA work in Spain, establishing churches in several places and preaching in many places. He died from peritonitis while on a missionary journey.
