Sandia View Academy students share Jesus on mission trip

When the opportunity came to take a mission trip to Vera Cruz, Mexico, Sandia View Academy student Kaylen White, 16, decided to go, not necessarily to be a preacher, but just to be with her friends. But as the time to leave for Mexico approached, Kaylen began to think seriously about why she was going. “I wanted to do more, so I decided to be one of the preachers,” Kaylen says. “I was nervous because I had never preached before.

Meetings bring youthful, fruitful harvest

Read this story: Meetings bring youthful, fruitful harvest

(N.Mex.) Our church concluded evangelistic meetings given by Amazing Facts speaker Eric Flickinger and Pastor Eric Redic with a total of 13 precious souls being added to the church. Pastor Redic also has been regularly baptizing new members as a result of Bible study work. Devon and Denzel are two brothers that had responded to an appeal the pastor gave a few months ago. They wanted to be baptized, so they started Bible studies. The boys were so excited, that they could hardly contain themselves. Denzel is the happy-go-lucky type, and Devon is very serious, but they both were excited to join their lives to Jesus. Pastor Redic also baptized three teenagers, Christopher Cruz, Michael Roybal, and Alexes Roybal. Read more...

My better half

Read this story: My better half

On December 1st Rita and I celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. What a blessing it has been to be married to such a wonderful person for all these years. Our love affair has not diminished over the years but has grown in depth and character. We still like being together just as much as when we were dating. We’ve only been separated for one extended period of time when I did my combat tour in Vietnam in 1972. Even now when I travel she goes with me most of the time. When she does not go with me I am often asked, “Where is your better half?” Read more...

On the weekend of October 17-19, the conference held its annual Lay Leadership Retreat. The theme of the retreat was “Growing the church through the training of its members.” The meetings were well attended, with approximately 225 people registered for the weekend. Lay leaders from across our conference came to seminars in the following areas: elders, treasurers, clerks, stewardship, children’s ministries, prayer ministries, Pathfinders/Adventurers, and risk management. The guest speakers for the general sessions were Mack Rucker and Mike Wood from Adventist Health System. It was great to see some new members come and attend the sessions. Participants returned to their home churches excited to put into practice what they had learned and to get busy working for the Lord. Thank you to all the speakers and staff who made the weekend a blessing for all! Read more...

Students memorize Bible verses

(El Paso, Tex.) As we continue to make strides to increase our academic level here at El Paso Adventist Junior Academy, memorizing Bible verses has been a vital way to help our students to retain and understand information. Furthermore, we believe that memorizing scripture is the key to helping children understand God’s Word and also hide it in their hearts. Teaching children to memorize scripture gives them the ability to stand firm in what they believe and equips them to recall what the Bible says in any situation they are confronted with. In order to make learning scripture fun and not mundane, the students have been given a second challenge to illustrate every single verse. This will help them contemplate what each scripture means.

Prior to the baptism on the last Sabbath, Pastor Workman performed a wedding, then baptized both the husband and the wife. Here are some stories from people who attended the meetings: Read more...

The apostle Peter wrote, “You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming” (2 Peter 3:11, 12, NIV). This Scripture seems to indicate that it is possible for us to hasten or speed up the coming of Jesus. Read more...
