ALCANCE Program Helps
Students’ Dreams Come True

According to Benjamin Franklin, “Energy and persistence conquer all things.” Over the years there have been persistent attempts in the Pacific Union to find ways to help Latino Adventist high school students succeed in their studies and attend Adventist schools. This persistence has paid off in one successful program: ALCANCE. Co-sponsored by the Pacific Union Conference, the Center for Research on Adventist Education (CRAE) at La Sierra University, conferences, individual donors, local churches, and mentors, ALCANCE is making that dream come true for many students.




Loma Linda Academy students Marissa Armeta, Marc Anthony Cardenas, and Adam Moreno are participants in the ALCANCE program.

Childhood Memory and YouTube Videos Bring Man to Christ

When he was young, Noe Lopez Wilberg’s grandmother donated land for Adventists to build a church on. Years later, this memory of his grandmother’s church prompted Noe to search YouTube for an Adventist Hispanic congregation in Oakland. Noe listened to recorded and live messages on Sabbath and then decided to visit in person. Inspired by the explanation for the plan of salvation he heard, Noe felt called to give his life to Jesus and be baptized. His hope is in the assurance that Jesus paid it all—for Noe and all of us.




Noe Lopez gives his life to Jesus after watching church services on YouTube.
