Last weekend, leaders at Washington Adventist University (WAU) in Takoma Park, Md., celebrated the many achievements and successes of students during their graduation ceremonies. It was the first commencement since 1904 to be held on the campus commons.
“On this the 106th Commencement Weekend, 275 students will receive a variety of graduate, undergraduate, associate and certificates,” said Weymouth Spence, WAU president. “Washington Adventist University is certainly a place where we produce graduates who bring competence and moral leadership to their communities.”

Historia de Anthony Baffi
Mientras atendía a su padre en el hospital, Reina Zapata-Méndez, miembro de la iglesia hispana de Jersey City y voluntaria de la Conferencia de Nueva Jersey como coordinadora estatal de Guías Maestras, escuchó la noticia de que un virus que se originaba en China había llegado a Estados Unidos. Zapata-Méndez, y el resto del mundo, no podían imaginar el torbellino que estaba por golpear en las próximas semanas.
