Spencerville Adventist Academy is excited to introduce eight new staff members (pictured in order mentioned). Tissiana Bowerman joins the administrative team as head principal. After receiving her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Andrews University (Mich.), she earned a Master of Education, with an emphasis in Educational Administration and Supervision from Southern Adventist University (Tenn.). Having 20-plus years of experience, covering a broad spectrum of administration, she is uniquely qualified to lead SAA. “I look forward to what we will accomplish as God leads our school to grow and witness for Him,” she says.

Have you ever seen a miracle?” When asked, we often stand with a blank look on our faces as we rummage in our memories to find one. God admonished the children of Israel, “Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them” (Deut. 4:9, NIV).

Story by Liz Anderson

Kleyton Feitosa had always been a planner. When considering decisions for himself and his family, he would envision life seven to 10 years in advance. But for Feitosa, who pastors Chesapeake Conference’s Living Word church in Glen Burnie, Md., his years-long journey with cancer seismically shifted that perspective.

The Brazilian native’s desire for mission service was sparked in high school after reading a book about a missionary who served in Papua New Guinea. Feitosa married Delma, his high school sweetheart, and continued making plans for a career in cross-cultural ministry.

HVA's music students create the "River Jordan" music video.

For several years, David Niño, the Chesapeake Conference Highland View Academy’s (HVA) music director, has pondered how to share with the rest of the world what he and his students do in the classroom.

Traditionally, the music curriculum emphasizes music standards that focus on students’ artistic, cognitive, creative and spiritual aspects. While the goal is always to provide a sound educational program, HVA also generates valuable opportunities for students to make an impact on the lives of others.
