Jennifer Yoo was one of the lucky ones. At age five, the diagnosis of a rare illness by an insightful physician saved her from potentially devastating health problems. The experience also sparked her interest in the field of medicine. Yoo, who graduated in June from La Sierra University with a Bachelor of Science degree in biomedical science, is a Cancer Research Training Awardee with the National Cancer Institute—and is on the fast track to becoming a physician and researcher.





Jennifer Yoo grew up in Irvine, California and enrolled at La Sierra University in 2015 attracted to its biology program. “I knew when applying for college that I wanted to be a physician and from others’ anecdotes I knew La Sierra University could help me get there,” she said.

Young People Lead at
West Valley Spanish Church

The West Valley Spanish Church in Phoenix, Ariz., held its Youth Sabbath the first weekend of November. Every part of the worship service was led by young people. Teens and Youth led Sabbath School and the worship service. Young adults presented a skit illustrating how sin attracts its prey and then holds them captive. Music was led by teens and included hymns and contemporary songs. The children’s story (which focused on Abraham and his son Isaac) was narrated and acted out by young people. After the church service, the group decided to get a picture to remember a wonderful day and another opportunity to lead their church.



Youth Sabbaths at the West Valley Spanish church in Phoenix, Ariz., bring all the church’s young people together to participate. Pictured: Manny Cruz, guest speaker and pastor, gathers with the young people of the church for a photo after morning worship.
