Valley News and Views :ii!!!~iiii ii!: i Page 7 July 25th, 2013 "That's nonsense" is one man's opinion of the Holy Spirit's baptism with the initial physical evidence of speaking in an unlearned language. Another, on another occasion said, "I think I could hear the same thing at midnight in the bar". In truth the Holy Spirit speaking through a follower of Jesus in this manner is neither nonsense nor a barroom exercise. It is a Bible based experience. On the day of Pentecost (one of several Jewish religious festivals, Acts 2;1-4) 120 believers, including the twelve Apostles, Jesus' mother and all His half- brothers, were gathered for prayer. Suddenly, with the sound of a mighty rush of wind the Spirit of God entered that room, and "they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance" (ability--NLT). No explanation is given as to why God chose this method to confirm the Spirit's arrival into a believers life. Perhaps it is as someone suggested, that God worked through man's most out of control member, the tongue, to show his Spirit now has full control. More important than tongues is why God sent His Spirit to fill a child of God. His coming was the fulfillment of God's promise in John 14:15-16 to send a Comforter once Jesus departed. Jesus explained in this chapter several reasons for the Spirit's coming, but the reason Jesus most wanted His disciples to understand is given just prior to His ascension - "... ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me...: (Acts 1:8). Spirit-filled Christians witness, through word and deed to the life-giving and transforming power of God. It is no wonder the devil moves his own or the uniformed to mock God's wonderful gift. by pastor leroy aufenkamp Pcmbina County Public Transit will be providing rides to the Frost Fire Theater Production of "The Music Man", onWednesday July 24th and 31st.

Pembina County Meals and Transportation - Call: 454-6586 Letter to the Editor, I'm writing this letter to express my sadness and disappointment in the lack of respect shown to our Nation's flag by the citizens and visitors of Drayton during the Riverfest parade. I have noticed this on previous occasions but this year was even worse than before. My guess is that only 25% of those attending the parade rendered the proper honors as the Color Guard passed. I know many of you have or know someone who is currently, or has previously, served in the military and hold this country's flag in the highest esteem. We all know that many people have fought and died for this symbol (of freedom). Basic flag etiquett as the flag passes in a parade is to face the flag and stand at attention with the right hand over the heart. Men should remove any headgear with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder so the hand covers the heart. I am aware other places carry a banner in front of the Color Guard instructing people to stand as the flag passes. I find it deplorable that it has come down to this. I would like to commend the one woman I was able to overhear who coached the young child standing next to her on how to show proper respect to the flag. I am sorry I don't know her name but I would like to thank her. I am hoping to be able to join the Color Guard in next year's Riverfest parade and would like to see a change. I expect that 100% of the crowd will stand to honor the flag as it passes and if the person next to you doesn't appear to remember just remind them. It's not a lot to ask, it is expected and deserved. God Bless America! Kristi Scharmer Commander Drayton American Legion Post 159 State Grants Available to Expand BISMARCK, N.D. - Applications will be accepted beginning July 1 for a series of state child care grants. The deadline for application is August 30, 2013. The goal of the program is to increase the capacity of child care in North Dakota, through the expansion or creation of child care facilities. "There is demand for high-quality, reliable child care providers throughout our state to support our young working families with children," Andrea Holl Pfennig, the program coordinator said. "Our goal with this program is to help create additional childcare options for working families." The program provides $3 of grant funds for every $1 of matching funds. Funds can be used for the purchase and renovation of real estate, furniture, fixtures and equipment. Operating expenses are not eligible under this program. Existing profit, non- profit and public child care facilities that are expanding capacity and will be licensed upon completion are eligible for the grant program. New child care providers that will be licensed upon completion of the project are also eligible. Qualified grant proposals will be awarded Continued On Page 8 Prairie Fare Continued From Page 10 Each serving has 130 calories, 0 grams (g) of fat, 3 g of protein, 35 g of carbohydrate, 2 g of fiber and 40 milligrams of sodium.
