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.

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!”
