Sylvia Mendez is also well known to many of us. Over the last three years she has been a lay minister at Wantirna while completing her studies through Avondale’s distance education program. She is thrilled to be an intern here in Melbourne this year, and have the opportunity to continue to serve Wantirna Church in this way. In addition, she is involved with Harvest Victoria as a regional director for the May outreach series, and Liaison for Adventist Women with the AUC. And still she has time for reading the occasional book or just enjoying interesting conversations with others. She is excited for what 2019 holds, and grateful to be part of the team.
