Historia de Heidi Shoemaker y Visitor Personal

Luego de las tormentas severas que incluyeron al menos 14 tornados confirmados y la muerte de una persona en el área de Dayton / Miami Valley en Ohio y dejaron a su paso cortes de agua y electricidad, los adventistas del Séptimo Día se unieron para ayudar a la comunidad. En las semanas posteriores a las tormentas de junio, las instalaciones de Kettering Adventist HealthCare (KAHC) trataron 175 personas con lesiones relacionadas con las tormentas, mientras que los líderes de Servicios Comunitarios Adventistas (ACS) y sus equipos de Respuesta ante Desastres brindaron apoyo, comida y oraciones.

Participants from around the Columbia Union Conference gathered at the union headquarters in Columbia, Md., this week to kick off the second year of the Advancement of Christian Education (ACE) Academy Leadership Coaching initiative.
