About 100 students, faculty, staff, from all the academies in the six Conferences of the Atlantic Union, and its leaders will descend to the City of New York and its Suburbs, this weekend (November 8-10, 2012) to show Compassion and support for those affected by recent Super Storm Sandy.
The leaders of Adventist Youth Ministries, the Education Department, and the Academy Principals from the Atlantic Union and its six Conferences met today on a conference call and decided to replace the I Academy Service and Leadership Conference with a Compassion & Leadership Mission to the areas affected by Storm Sandy in the New York metro area.
The Adventist Youth Ministries and Education Department leaders are working in coordination with the Adventist Community Services leadership in the Greater New York and Northeastern Conferences. During the weekend, the Academy students will assist those affected by the storm by distributing warm food & clothing, water, blankets, personal comfort kits, among other emergency items.
Please keep the students, their chaperones, and the entire leadership team in your prayers as they work on behalf of those in need during this weekend.
