The North Dakota District Convention is over and many decisions that were made that will effect mission and ministry here and around the world for years to come.  The District in Convention decided to start a new mission in Stanley and decided on “mission Guidelines” to be used in mission starts.  There were decisions made about Project 24 that will be discussed in the future and there were many great Bible studies and papers presented by Rev. Daniel Preus.

One of the simple statements that has really struck me was from Pastor Preus paper on being Lutheran – he said – “where there is the forgiveness of sins there is life and salvation.  The opposite is also true, where there is no forgiveness there is no life and there is no salvation”.
