Over the past twenty plus years, the members of the North Dakota District LCMS and the ND District LWML have been such great supporters of the Orphan Grain Train – North Dakota Branch. Now as we move forward, I find that my age is taking its toll on my health. What we need are your ideas on who may assist or fill my shoes, even if this means finding a new location – possibly Jamestown, Bismarck or another location in the central part of the State. It would be important that such a person be a member of an LCMS congregation.
Our present location is OK; however, inconvenient, being on the far northern part of the state. It is a long distance to truck our items to the home office in Norfolk, Nebraska. Whether it does or does not remain in Bottineau, we do have a bus, pickup, enclosed trailer, forklift, pallet racks and pallet jack. We always seem to be blessed with the funds to fill our needs. We pray that the Lord will bless us with a person or persons with a heart and passion for the needy.
If you know of someone who would be interested, please contact us: Harold Gessner, 504 Jay Street, Bottineau, ND 58318; telephone: 701-228-5102; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
