“The theme for National Lutheran Schools Week, Jan. 27 – Feb. 2, 2013, is “Baptized for This Moment” based on Acts 2:38–39. This was chosen to build on the theme for the 2013 Synod convention. All of our Lutheran Schools, preschools and childcare centers in North Dakota would like to thank you for your continued support and prayers! The ND District of the LC-MS encourages a special offering to be taken in congregations this week to benefit our two Lutheran Elementary schools, Grace Lutheran School in Fargo, and Martin Luther School in Bismarck. Your offerings will help to proclaim God’s Word in the classroom and community. Thank you!”

He served on the Board of LCMS World Relief and Human Care for ten years and is now the Chairman of the Board of International Missions. He has been privileged to travel around the world and see the churches' mercy work in action. He is convinced it is not only what we are "compelled" to do because of Christ; it is what we have been baptized for. Christ's love compels us, constrains us, and sends us forth.
