There are many Pastors in Minnesota and North Dakota who have children in the Military. We appreciate their service and we offer prayers for them every Sunday. Our Synod President Matt Harrison has said many times that the Missouri Synod is an incubator for good citizens. Here is a picture of Minnesota North District President Fondow’s son and grandson. Learning how to respect the flag of the United States used to be part of our heritage. Those days are gone but the tradition is proudly carried on by many.
