LEADERS GATHER FOR eHUDDLE
Communicating, exchanging ideas, and strategizing all took place at eHuddle, the North American Division Evangelism Visioning and Leadership Team meeting hosted at the NAD headquarters in Columbia, Maryland. Representing the Pacific Union were pastors from across our seven conferences who wanted to join a discussion on church revitalization, growing younger churches and ministering to large, unreached people groups, such as single families, people in transition, and new believers. The meetings were described by Gamal Alexander, pastor of Compton Community Church, as “an amazing, impactful experience.”

HOLBROOK STUDENTS REPRESENT AT NAVAJO NATION SCIENCE FAIR
Last week, our young scholars from Holbrook Indian School participated in the Navajo Nation Science Fair, held in Window Rock, Arizona. After completing projects for their own science fair, Holbrook students joined neighboring schools for the annual science fair held for schools across the Navajo Nation.
Two Holbrook students brought home awards from the event. Congratulations to Maribel, fifth place in the Senior Division, in the field of Biology, and Logan, 1st place in the High School Division, in the field of Chemistry. We are so proud of these young people—and for the dedicated teachers at Holbrook Indian School, a one of a kind mission among Native Americans, operated by the Pacific Union.
