Adventist Health Trauma Team Members Serve as Agents of Hope

What do you do in times of crisis? For Jennifer Crawford, Adventist Health and Rideout manager of the Trauma Department, it’s a time to lean in and help people. “In times of chaos, one of my roles is to help manage the best trauma care,” Crawford says. One specific case that not only affected Jennifer’s department but affected the entire community, was a teenager that was killed by a drunk driver. “This unfortunate event created an impactful experience which not only brought together the entire working community, including local agencies; police, fire, ambulance and local bystanders who stopped to assist. We often meet patients in our community on the worst day of their lives where we get to become the agents of hope by living God’s love—inspiring health, wholeness, and hope.”

Adventist Community Services Helps Honor Reno’s Military Veterans

Two of the Nevada-Utah Conference’s Adventist Community Services ministries in Reno, Nevada, honored military veterans this last November. The Sparks church sponsored their first AMEN (Adventist Medical Evangelism Network) medical clinic in honor of Veterans Day. Additionally, the Center of Influence hosted its fourth annual Thanksgiving dinner provided by Reno’s Wild Whimsical Women, an informal social and charitable group that primarily supports homeless and struggling veterans and their families around the holidays. This faith-community is serving their neighbors in meaningful ways!



Through events hosted at the Reno ACS Center of Influence, church members were able to express their appreciation to veterans. “It’s very heartwarming to see our church show such amazing appreciation to veterans,” said Debra Waggoner (first row, far right), associate director for the Center of Influence and also a veteran of the United States Air Force.
