The Adventist Development and Relief Agency is establishing two temporary health camps in Western Nepal to assist some of the 180,000 people still affected by last month’s deadly flooding.

To date, floods have killed 32 and left more than 30,000 families without food, clothing and shelter. Local authorities are reporting a rapid rise in potentially deadly illnesses including diarrhea and malaria, said Beryl Hartmann, Humanitarian Program coordinator for ADRA Australia.

A powerful earthquake that struck the U.S. state of California last weekend badly damaged a Seventh-day Adventist school, forcing it to close just four days into the school year and to launch a drive to raise $200,000 for repairs.

The school, Napa Christian Campus of Education, appeared to be the only Adventist facility to sustain major damage in the 6.0 quake that rocked Napa County at 3:20 a.m. on Sunday, August 24. Pacific Union College, located nearly miles from the school, emerged unscathed.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church filed an amicus brief today urging the United States’ top court to accept the case of a Muslim girl who was denied a job because her hijab—a head-covering—violated a company’s policy.

The Adventist Church’s “friend-of-the-court” brief is joined by seven other faith groups for the case Equal Employment Opportunity Commission vs. Abercrombie & Fitch Stores, Inc. The U.S. Supreme Court will decide in October whether to accept the case.

A group of Adventist children from Britain narrowly escaped a fire that destroyed their bus as they left the International Pathfinder Camporee in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, last weekend.

A tire blew out on the bus as it traveled on a Wisconsin highway for Atlanta, Georgia, on Aug. 17. The driver pulled over to the side of the highway to take a closer look, but then a fire quickly erupted.

Wilson: No room for evolution in Adventist schools

csm_wilson-vegas-SMALL

Seventh-day Adventist world church President Ted N. C. Wilson forcefully asserted that life has existed on the Earth for only a few thousand years, not millions of years, as he opened an educators conference in Utah on Friday, and he said teachers who believe otherwise should not call themselves Seventh-day Adventists or work in Church-operated schools.

At Pathfinder Camporee, Daniel reenactments deliver big lessons from big stage

Actor Bryan Roback, playing King Nebuchadnezzar, loses his crown and wig during an ardent rant in a performance on Wednesday, August 13. The nightly play at the 2014 Pathfinder Camporee presents lessons from the book of Daniel about staying faithful to God. It is presented on a 100-foot-wide stage to an audience of more than 46,000. Image by James Bokovoy

A funny thing happened on the way to the throne the other night. King Nebuchadnezzar’s wig flew off while he ranted at the front of his giant chair.

It was an unplanned physical gag that fate handed to actor Bryan Roback on Wednesday night as he sat on a 100-foot-wide stage. He was part of a cast playing to 46,000 people sitting in camping chairs on a field in the middle of Wisconsin. While the mishap didn’t cause Roback to miss a beat—nor his fellow actors, save for a few brief smirks—it got one of the night’s biggest laughs, both from the audience and a few doubled-over actors backstage.
