Pacific Sunrise Escondido Adventist Academy Teacher Hosts Zoom Gathering on Sabbath Mornings for Students

When stay-at-home orders separated teachers and students, Escondido Adventist Academy’s 4-5th-grade teacher Valerie Blue had an idea. “I wanted to connect with my students right away after school was dismissed long term,” she said. “Our principal helped me get started on Zoom, so I invited them to our first meeting, ‘Sabbath Blessings with Mrs. Blue.’ We’ve enjoyed it ever since and have met each Sabbath.” From 9:30-10:00am, teacher and students visit together, read Bible verses, share what the verses tell them about God, and share prayer requests. They then dismiss so that students can join their church’s planned worships. “About 17 tune in each week,” Blue said. “I ask if they want to gather on Sabbath and they all do, so I keep inviting them!”
