Oregon Conference children’s ministry director, Shirley Allen, has been awarded the first annual “Leonard Bierlein Reach the Word for Jesus” award, by Ultimate Mission.
The Ultimate Mission team, based in Portland, Oregon, provides support and training for health workers, each of whom is the wife of a Seventh-day Adventist pastor. These women are being trained on how to teach the four key lifestyle changes that will reduce the chance of contracting Type 2 diabetes.
Over 36,000 people are counted as members in the Oregon Conference territory. That’s 36,000 individuals, called together into a community of faith to fulfill the mission that Jesus has given us. More than 36,000 stories of humans trying to make sense of life and family and faith. Kaleb will help tell their stories.
“So, I started visiting houses in and around Barrow. Turned out that the advertising hadn’t worked at all. Someone thought that it would be great to have kids go door-to-door hanging advertisements on doorknobs. However, with the temperatures at 27 degrees below zero, not a lot of hangings got hung!”
