GO RED POR TU CORAZON
Nearly 800 women (and a few men) attended the second annual “Go Red por tu Corazon” at the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn, Hollywood Hills on Feb. 10. The event brought awareness to the Latina community about heart health, and was hosted by the Hispanic Region Women’s Ministries department of the Southern California Conference. From the music and dynamic speakers to the free blood pressure checks provided by students from CES Nursing School Program in Burbank, attendees were blessed with life-saving information and inspiration.

ACS PROVIDES FOR HOMELESS IN RENO
If there is one aspect of ministry that gets Jerry Waggoner excited, it’s serving his community in tangible ways. Waggoner, the Adventist Community Services Director for the Nevada-Utah Conference, recently shared a story with All God’s People about the work his team is doing at the Reno Center of Influence. The Center, which operates a thrift store, also provides food to those in need. Earlier this month, Waggoner had a chance to give a jacket to a man whose only protection from the cold was a long sleeve plaid shirt. Waggoner’s story reminds us of Christ’s words, “Truly, I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40. Their center provides a host of social services including a food bank and food stamp services, and soon they plan to open an after-school program for foster care children. Does your church have an ACS outreach program? How are you living God’s love in your community?

30 YEARS OF CHURCH GROWTH IN NAIROBI
Just over 30 years ago, Dr. Calvin Rock visited Nairobi with a mission to share the gospel. The longtime vice president of the General Conference and president of Oakwood University and his team started an evangelism series that resulted in about 1,200 baptisms. The evangelism series also started a church plant called the Newlife SDA Church of Nairobi, with a membership of 350. Since its start, the members of the Newlife church have spread their love of Jesus and the gospel with others, resulting in satellite churches and a growth in membership totaling over 10,000 members. This evangelism story from Nairobi illustrates the power of the gospel.
