La Sierra PSAs
La Sierra University students and staff have created a powerful media response to the continuing challenges being created by the pandemic. As the Delta variant is spreading in our union and in our country, La Sierra film students have made seven Public Service Announcements in English and in Spanish to help address vaccine hesitancy. Along with the rollout of the vaccines have come many questions. To address some of the most common concerns and to encourage its campus and community members to receive the vaccine under the guidance of their healthcare providers, La Sierra University is offering these informational and inspirational messages presented by members of its campus family.
A big thank you and shout out to the La Sierra University Film and Television Production department and Associate Professor Carrie Specht, who led her students in the production of these important messages about COVID-19 vaccines.

An Interview with Nancy Crosby
Native American Ministries is one of our vital volunteer-led ministries in the Pacific Union. Recently, we spoke with Nancy Crosby about some of her personal highlights in ministry with Native Americans. You can read more about Native American Ministries in the September Recorder.
Celebrating a Milestone
The Recorder magazine celebrated a big milestone this week! On August 1, 1901, the first edition of the Pacific Union Recorder magazine was published for members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It comprised 16 pages—with approximately 16,300 words and no pictures—and highlighted the mission work taking place in both the Pacific Southwest and Pacific Northwest. The first line of the magazine reads as follows, "God has a special work for His servants to do in the preparation of people to stand in the great day of the Lord. This work is to commence in our own hearts. We need the faith that works by love and purifies the soul." After 120 years, this monthly magazine is still keeping members inspired and informed. Read recent editions of the Recorder or the very first edition via the links below.
