Here is some inspiring news from the Seventh-day Adventist Church community:

In Brazil, more than 9,000 young people participated in the Caleb Mission Project in January. They contributed and volunteered in missionary work including Bible studies, blood donation, food collection, and home renovations, particularly in flood-affected areas. The project aims to mobilize youth across South America to dedicate some of their vacation time to evangelism in places with no Adventist presence. It has become the biggest youth movement in South America.

In Poland, the Regional Medical Chamber in Łódź presented Adventist doctor, Tomasz Karauda, an award 'for contributions to health protection' on February 2. Dr. Karauda, with the Kulczyk Foundation, donated over 5 million US dollars to the Doctors for Doctors Foundation. The fund was used at a critical time to purchase personal protective equipment for Polish doctors. The honorary badge is a departmental civilian decoration awarded by the Polish Minister of Health.

In the Inter-American Division, Zarith Méndez topped the quinquennial Bible Connect competition on January 30. Answering 99 out of 100 multiple-choice questions correctly, she outclassed the other three participants. Méndez said studying the Bible has changed her life entirely and helped her get involved with public campus ministries at her university. She will represent the IAD as a youth delegate during the Adventist World Church's General Conference Session next year in Indiana, USA. The competition aims to motivate more than 1.5 million young people across Inter-America to study and apply God's Word.
