Yaeko Sakai
Yaeko Sakai graduated in 1952 from Seattle Pacific College, as a nursing major. However only ten years before she would graduate from college, Yaeko found her family being forced to leave their farm and home on Bainbridge Island. They would be a part of the first Japanese Americans to have to leave the Pacific Northwest. She was forced to board a train to the Mojave Desert in Southern California to live in an Assembly Center and Internment Camp called Manzanar. She would be one of the 120,000 Japanese Americans forced to leave their homes on the West Coast and be placed in internment camps due to the racism and fear caused by the Attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Come hear incredible testimony about how she lived through the Japanese internment at the age of 12, and then later came to SPC to become a nurse. She will be speaking on Oct. 19, 2004 in the New Science Building, Room 112 from 7-9pm.

Learn more about urban intentional community
Seattle's Urban Intentional Community, an outreach of University Presbyterian Church, will host an information session on Tuesday, Oct. 26 at 7pm in Weter 202. Students are encouraged to learn more about the possibility of living and serving in an intentional community in urban Seattle after graduation. For more information, please contact Owen Sallee, SPU Urban Ministry Advisor, at 281-2932 or e-mail: owen@spu.edu. Seattle's Urban Intentional Community (SUIC) is a discipleship program comprised of young adults who volunteer to live together for a minimum of one year in Seattle's urban neighborhoods. Together they receive leadership training, build community, grow in character and serve those in need. SUIC interns are not "taking a year off from the rest of their lives," but exploring the balance and integration of work, community and ministry into a lifestyle of hope and service. The program year runs from September 2004-August 2005. Seattle urban neighborhoods provide exceptional contexts for our interns to give of themselves, grow their skills, and provide meaningful service. For more info please email intentionalcommunity@upc.org or contact Mike McCormick Huentelman at 206/524-7301, ext 214.
