There will be no NewsPoints next week

AIM Contact Center will provide follow-up for Your Best Pathways to Health in San Antonio. Each of the expected 6,000 individuals who receive care at the Pathways to Health event in San Antonio, April 8-10, will be given a beautiful brochure about Seventh-day Adventists. The NAD Ministerial Department coincidentally committed funding for a follow-up phone number to be featured in this literature on the same day it was scheduled to go to print. On the back will now be 1-800-HIS-WORD which connects to the AIM Evangelistic Contact Center of the church. Calls will be answered with an offer of prayer ministry, Bible study and connection to the local church. We are working together to provide a way people can make contact long after the event itself is over.

The Focus of the Month of April will be Stewardship. The best time to learn about stewardship is during childhood. A new tithe and offering envelope for children is now available in English, French and Spanish. It provides an excellent pictorial way to teach young children the difference between tithe and offerings and to train them to be regular and faithful with their tithe and offerings. Sold at AdventSource in packages of 100. 

The Children's Tithe Calculator, which sports the Stewardship Jack logo, will be helpful for children to learn how to calculate their tithe. Available at AdventSource.

Reaching Out in Love

Alaska Looks for New Medical Missionaries – Ken Crawford, Alaska Conference president, is challenging mission-minded medical workers to make Alaska their home. From the far-flung areas of Nome and St. Lawrence Island, to the southeastern towns, Adventist churches are eager for new "tent-maker missionaries." One of the latest installments of "My Alaska," a video series with Crawford, is now available online. Watch it now, and consider if this special calling is for you or someone you know. - From North Pacific Union GleanerWeekly of March 5, 2015
