U.S. Department of Education Assistant Commissioner Visits Las Vegas Junior Academy

Las Vegas Junior Academy (LVJA) in Las Vegas, Nev. welcomed a special visitor in mid-February! Mark Schultz, the U.S. Department of Education Acting Assistant Commissioner visited the school and spent time in each of the classrooms visiting with students and teachers. Each class shared some of the exciting things they are learning at LVJA; specifically in STEM and history. Schultz asked and answered pertinent questions and enjoyed a serenade in Mandarin from the 1st and 2nd-grade classroom—and ‘Jesus Loves Me’ in the T-K Kindergarten classroom. Schultz returned to visit the 7th-through-10th graders later in February and spoke to them about Nevada’s Career and Technical Education Program.

Vallejo Drive Church Spends
Sabbath Sharing Love

Members and volunteers from Vallejo Drive church spent a Sabbath in December engaging with the community of Glendale, Calif., and beyond. Children, young adults, and adults distributed a total of 473 blankets, 400 servings of hot vegetable soup, hundreds of socks, hygiene packages, sleeping mats, and candy canes to about 500 people. In addition, various outreach initiatives took place throughout the day. One group visited a local fire station to share homemade cookies with the firefighters and offer prayer for both protection and gratitude.





“Vallejo Drive church is becoming a church focused on reaching out to the community and sharing the love of Jesus,” said Audrey Zorek, the children’s ministry director. “The best way to feel love is to share love.”
