Adelaida Yanez Engages Her Calling to Ministry
Fortuna church member Adelaida (Adela) Yanez has been named a 2021 Healthcare Hero by the California Association of Health Facilities. Yanez is a nurse and acute/emergency department manager at Jerold Phelps Community Hospital in Garberville
News articles applaud Yanez for keeping patients safe during the pandemic, helping evacuate the hospital due to wildfire, and leading the fight against COVID. But they don’t tell her entire amazing story!
When she was four months pregnant with her oldest daughter, Yanez was diagnosed with cancer. During her difficult ordeal, she nearly lost her life four times. Impressed by the vital role that nurses played in her recovery, she prayed: “Lord if you help me, someday I will be a nurse.”
He answered her prayer. Yanez lived to raise three daughters and now has a granddaughter. She and her husband, Pedro, have served as long-time leaders of the Fortuna Spanish group. “God has granted me all these years,” she said. “The Lord has been so good to me.”
Yanez fulfilled her promise and became a registered nurse. “God used so many people in our church to help us while I was in school,” she said. “One person—I never found out who it was—sent us money every month. It was such a blessing!”
Now the Lord is using Yanez to bless others. “I love being able to help people and be there for them,” she said. “What a difference you can make to people by showing them compassion and being somebody they can trust!”
