Teens Reminded of God's Power

March 06, 2017 / Alicia Pope

Imagine a world where teens came together expecting a weekend of worship fun and desire to make Jesus a reality. Teen Retreat 2017 at Camp MiVoden in Hayden Lake, Idaho, was just that.

From all over the Upper Columbia Conference, teens gathered to be reminded of God's power by Dean Kravig, weekend speaker and the band teacher of Upper Columbia Academy in Spangle, Wash. His message was anything but blah. Jim Morgan, father of one of the teens, says, "His sermons have been right on."

March 06, 2017 / César De León

El martes 13 de diciembre del año pasado los pastores de la obra Hispana, sus cónyuges y sus hijos, fueron agasajados y honrados al ser invitados al primer banquete Hispano navideño de la Unión del Norte del Pacífico. Junto a mi esposa Carolann y Sandra Osorio asistente administrativa del departamento, se planeo cuidadosamente cada detalle del evento. El deseo era que nuestras familias ministeriales se sintieran apoyadas, amadas y apreciadas.

Full Circle

It never ceases to amaze me how God uniquely works. Mary Klein’s story began in 1959, and my memories of my grandmother are still vivid and clear as if it was yesterday. When I would visit her, the aroma of fresh bread and caribou stew would fill my nose. After she came to hug and kiss me, I’d hear, “Go eat, beebe!” with her thick Native Alaskan accent.

Love poured from my grandmother to my mother, Cecelia; her two sisters, Marilyn and Linda; my cousins; siblings; and me.

It was an image I’ll never forget, though it harkens back more than four decades. The sun was riding low in the west as I neared the iconic overlook to Yosemite Valley. On a clear day, the view stretches east from Bridalveil Fall in the foreground to the granite monolith of El Capitan and onward to the unmistakable wall of Half Dome.

This was not that sort of day.

ASI Northwest: Fresh Direction, Expanded Vision

February 23, 2017

You know you’ve arrived as an organization when everyone recognizes you by an acronym. Read NFL, CSI, FBI or NASA in a sentence, and you’re likely to know exactly what’s meant without any further ado. In Adventist circles, of course, we quickly recognize GC, EGW, ADRA and … ASI. But what does ASI really stand for, and what does it do?
