Rev. Don Fondow, President of the Minnesota North District of the LCMS was at our District Convention and rose to give greetings.  He said a lot of people asked him if he was crazy traveling 6 hours to come to our Convention.  He said that he came not just to greet us as brothers and sisters in Christ but to reinforce the partnerships that we engage in in our life together.  Minnesota North and North Dakota Districts work together on Project 24, Main Street Living and some other things.  Those partnerships are not only valuable but Biblically sound concepts.  We have a life together as Lutherans that transcends what we can do individually, and models  the Body of Christ.

Fondow’s time with us was all encouragement and joy and much appreciated.
