In September, the Walla Walla University School of Nursing organized its fourth mission trip to India to provide vaccinations for children.

Led by nursing faculty Rosemarie Buck Khng, Everly Batuik, Fred Troutman and Karen Tetz, 15 students assisted with the distribution of hepatitis A and B, typhoid, DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis) and meningococcal vaccines to more than 1,000 people at and near two Seventh-day Adventist schools in the states of Assam and Meghalaya in northeast India.

Sitka Sends Missionaries to Hoonah

The village of Hoonah, a Tlingit community with a population 785, has no Adventist church, and Merry Ann Hall felt impressed to do something about it. She has a strong burden for the distribution of literature and has placed Christian books in hundreds of homes in Alaska and Hawaii over the last several years.
