Human Trafficking is all over our news in ND. LCMS ND and LWML ND invite you to attend a lunch workshop to educate church workers and lay members about human trafficking and how to respond to the victims. This Witness, Mercy, Life Together event scheduled for this Sat., April 11 at the Baymont Inn & Suites (Seven Seas Hotel), Mandan, is for anyone and everyone in our ND District and in our community...men and women. The day will begin with Bible Study led by District President James Baneck followed by two wonderful speakers. One of the speakers, Rebekah (Marcis) Grimm has had much experience working with sex trafficking survivors and understands the issue on an international level. The other speaker, Dawnya Underwood is the Asst. Dir. for Children's Services in Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS). LIRS provides safety and protection to unaccompanied refugee minors and unaccompanied alien children, helping them reunite with family members already in U.S as soon as possible. There will be an ingathering of Walmart gift cards or gas cards to be used by pastors in the "oil patch" and a free will offering for mission mites. The day begins at 10:00 AM-2:45 PM, and the cost is $10 and covers a delicious lunch. Please let Nikki Tyrrell (firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>) know immediately if you plan to attend so she can count you in for lunch! (She needs a count by Tuesday.)
