Milton Peverini passes to his rest
Milton Peverini García, former speaker/director for La Voz de la Esperanza, passed to his rest in Loma Linda, California, on June 27, 2021, after a long illness. He was 88 years old.
In January 1971, Milton Peverini García joined the ministry of La Voz de la Esperanza as associate speaker/director, becoming the speaker/director in 1974, after Braulio Pérez Marcio retired. Devoted to the cause of Jesus Christ since his youth, his theology studies, training as a lawyer, and experience as an educator and youth counselor gave Peverini a firm foundation as speaker/director. Throughout his ministry, Peverini García made a significant contribution to the spiritual life of thousands, not only as speaker/director of the La Voz de la Esperanza ministry, where he led for 27 years, but also as a speaker for international evangelism series and as the author of numerous books and articles.
A memorial service is planned for tomorrow July 10, at 4 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time; the service will be available to watch online via the link below.
Director of Education Berit von Pohle Ordained to the Gospel Ministry
Church administrators, coworkers, family, and friends gathered on Founder’s Green at La Sierra University on Sabbath afternoon, June 26, to witness an ordination service for Pacific Union Director of Education Berit von Pohle. Brooke Lemmon, who is Elder von Pohle’s daughter and a principal in Southeastern California, set the tone for the afternoon with her welcoming remarks. “It could be easy for an administrator to take the reins and direct others in the way that the show must be run, but Berit’s specialty is not only in leading but in helping others find their strengths and talents in leadership,” Lemmon said. “Her motivation is grounded in love for the life-changing work that’s done in Adventist Education.” Elder Ricardo Graham and Elder Bradford Newton were among those participating in the event. Many blessings to Elder von Pohle in her ministry in education.
