Las Vegas Educators Aid
in Rescue of Woman from
During a recess at Abundant Life Christian Academy in Las Vegas, Nev. in late August, teachers noticed the smell of smoke coming out of the house across the street. After calling 911, the group noticed a young woman banging on one of the windows inside of the home. Principal Denice Raphael brought students inside for their safety while their Education Superintendent Fernando Lista, teachers Samuel Blot and Anissa Johnson, and local pastor Chad Dickens ran to the window to try to help. Strong metal grates covered the windows, but they managed to bend the bars upwards, creating just enough space for the woman to squeeze her body through. Although the home received significant damage, praise goes to God that nothing major happened to anyone’s life!
