Community Rallies
to Save Local Academy

At the end of the last school year, a large class graduated from San Fernando Valley Academy—dropping enrollment down for the next year. It appeared that the academy would need to close their doors. When the school’s community learned of the situation, they were inspired to act. The school started receiving donations and enrollment began to climb. “We turned a dark corner by trusting in the Lord,” said Oscar Withmory, principal and business manager at SFVA. Thanks to this community, students will continue to learn about God’s love in the San Fernando Valley.

Turns 105 Years Old

Anita Mackey celebrated a significant milestone on Jan. 1st—her 105th birthday. Mackey has been an Adventist since she was 23-years-old, and after 80 years her love of her church family is as strong as ever. “Faith is everything,” says Mackey. “We have a wonderful message. I love the progressiveness of Adventist young people; they have a goal in life!” We couldn’t agree more. Happy Birthday, Anita!
