South Bay Junior Academy Student Reaches 1,000-Book Reading Goal

Congratulations to South Bay Junior Academy fourth-grader London Johnson for completing an amazing goal of reading 1,000 books in one year! Her project culminated live on Facebook where she read aloud her 1,000th book—which happens to be her first authored book, called “London and the 1000 Books.” In the process of completing this endeavor, she co-founded London’s Learning, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization. The mission of London’s Learning, Inc. is to help other children discover the leader within through literacy.




London Johnson, a fourth-grader at South Bay Junior Academy in Torrance, Calif., recently wrote a book about how she read 1,000 books in one year.

Arizona Conference Hispanic Ministries Hosts Marriage Retreat

The Arizona Conference Hispanic Ministries Department held their annual Hispanic Marriage Retreat late last year in Prescott, Arizona. Various activities allowed couples to create memories with each other—and provided an opportunity to express their feelings for each other. At the Saturday evening dinner, couples enjoyed the cooler weather while sitting by the fireplace and drinking hot chocolate. The retreat had 80 couples in attendance. One of the many who expressed gratitude for the experience exclaimed, “What great speakers and what an amazing weekend we had!”

P.S. Did You Know?

When children have a home library, as few as 20 books of their own at home (think: one bookshelf full), they achieve three more years of schooling than children who don’t have any books at home. –
