Escondido Adventist
Gears Up
for "Big Buddy" Outreach
Holidays are coming, and Escondido Adventist Academy is excitedly gearing up for the annual Escondido Community Child Development Center (ECCDC) Christmas party. The ECCDC is a non-profit preschool for children ages 4 months to kindergarten, and serves low-income households—the majority of which live in the Escondido area. The high school students will be joining the ECCDC children on their campus and will take on the role of "Big Buddy." After sharing a gift with the child, they take them around to activity centers and play with the children. The high school students look forward to this event every year.

Native American Ministries
Hosts Camp Meeting in
Southern Utah

Native American Ministries for the Nevada-Utah Conference held their annual camp meeting in Southern Utah in September. In addition to wonderful weather, attendees also enjoyed delicious food! On Sunday, volunteers prepared a meal of Navajo tacos for lunch. "Many people enjoyed the fellowship and time at camp meeting," said Pastor James Crosby of Kayenta. "Everyone pitched in to make the camp meeting happen. Local community people even came to help set up the tent and attended some of the meetings." The Pacific Union is home to more than 1.2 million Native Americans. For Native American Ministries, this means plenty of people with whom to share God's love.
