Valley News & Views .... Page 5 August 4th, 2011 Last week we dealt with the Acts 2 account of the coming of the Holy Spirit to "fill" (v:4) those followers of Christ waiting in Jerusalem, at Jesus' command, for "the promise of my Father" (Luke 24:49). The Spirit's coming is recorded in verses two through four. As each one was "filled with the Holy Ghost" he/she "began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them the utterance" (v:4). Near the end of chapter two Peter makes a statement that is of great importance to 21st believers: "For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off [distance and time], even as many as the Lord our God shall call." The Holy Spirit infilling or (baptism) is still available today. Since the initial receiving of the Spirit there has never ceased being some believers who had been so baptized. But with the advent of the twentieth century there has been an unprecedented outpouring among believers of all denominations, countries, and races. My first experience came when I was a very young teenager. That infilling in my home church had such a strong impact upon my life I remember it clearly after four and a half decades. Many in the earl days of this modern Pentecostal movement drove hundreds of miles to learn more and to experience it for themselves. These people had one thing in common -- they wanted whatever God had for them, and if this was from God they were determined to receive it. The Pentecostal movement, sometimes also referred to the Charismatic movement, has given birth to numerous denominations, such as mine, the Assemblies of God. However, not al "Pentecostals" are in Pentecostal churches. Many have chosen to remain in their own church. God's gift is also for you. by pastor leroy aufenkamp The N.D. Department of Human Services and the N.D. Department of Commerces Division of Community Service remind North Dakotans that emergency cooling assistance is available for individuals with certain medical conditions who qualify for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

"States can implement emergency cooling assistance programs to help prevent heat-related illnesses in vulnerable low- income individuals."

People who are not currently energy assistance program clients may also qualify if they have a documented medical need and meet financial criteria.

Pembina County Meals and Transportation - Call: 454-6586 Letter to the Editor Locked Out Union Worker Here we are, 1300+ strong, ready, willing and capable of work.., and totally unemployed. For myself, the 1st time in 22 years I am without a job. What bothers me the most is the reason we are jobless. But lets get back to that in a minute. A little about my history with my last employer. I am the proud mother of four now grown children that were raised for several years by myself, as my husband was killed in 2001. I workholidays, sometimes double shifts, so other could have time with their families. School activities missed, church missed, weekend get-aways missed and the list goes on and on. Lets not forget all the extra overtime worked for storms, sick call ins, and all the staff shortages. I have worked hard fo years to establish my seniority, wage, and insurances. This company and myself have been through the tragic death of my wo worker, who would probably be on the unemployment list like me, had he not been killed doing what he loved to do most (make sugar). Here I am with memories to last a lifetime, with the hard working people I love and consider a Fair Deal 'Tk "Fair Contract". Shame on you for trying to take what we have all worked so hard for. To take away and take away, is unacceptable to me and all my family. We are united by years, forever family and as I have said before and you should know by now, FAMILY ..... STICKS TOGETHER! Sincerely, Ellen Patterson Drayton, ND Letter to the Editor Locked Out Union Workers Today, together we stand, our Brothers and Sisters of the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco and Grain Millers 167G, outside the very gates that most of us have passed thousands of times, to do the work to make the best sugar in the world, with the best sugar beets grown in the world, by our area farmers. And now, because we are nearly unanimously voted no to the offer given us at the llth hour by the company, we were asked to leave the company grounds at midnight Sunday, and watch as a line was painted on the driveway and the gate locked from the inside. It was never about the money, we only wanted to .p, our jobs and continue :to work to do what WE do better than anyone. Most of us have had to work shift work and holidays for 20, 30 and 40 years. We missed being home to tuck our kids in bed; go to their Parent/Teacher conferences; see their school concerts or ball games for example. This list could go on forever. Many of us have worked 32 or more hours during snow storms, drove miles to get to work during flooding and worked overtime when something came up and the skills we have were needed to keep the factories running. We worked with pride and did our job. Now this is what the Company thinks of us. Just bring in anyone they think are capable to do the work and let us go one by one. But here we are UNITED and TOGETHER we will prevail. Lynn and Renae Fredrickson Drayton, ND Proud Members of BCTGM 167G The Drayton Booster Club would like to thank the Lounge and the Zoo Bars for donating ice for the past ball season for the concession stand at the park. It's a HUGE help to us! Also, thanks to ALL who donated pans of Bars, volunteered to work a shift or graciously worked after being asked, donated water, worked gate admissions for tournaments, and to those who patronized our little concession stand. We could not make this work with out everyone's support! The money we raise is going to cover expenses and new equipment for the ball programs. A BIG THANKS to Drayton Gaming, American Crystal Sugar and Kodabank for the donations given for the Inflatable's for the kids during Riverfest. On behalf of all the kids who had fun that dayI Thanks again! This event would NOT happen with out your continued support! Thanks to Jeff Blawat and family and Blawat Construction for allowing the Maverick Lawn Mower Racing Circuit to set up on their property during Riverfest. It was a good show and they promise to be back next year! So, locals, get your lawn mowers ready for a Novice division next year! David L.
