Valley News and Views Page 7 August 15th, 2013 Afte having fed thousands with a small handful of fish and bread, Jesus dismissed the people and sent His Disciples on a boat with instructions to go to Bethsaida, while He "departed into a mountain to pray". Not long after setting out the winds began to blow. Rowing became difficult as the winds increased and the waves rose higher and higher. Mark 6:48 says Jesus "saw them toiling in rowing". He did not command the winds and waves to cease as He did on another occasion. This time Jesus walked down the mountain, stepped into the Sea, and began walking. The Gospel vaites tell us it was now the middle of the night and that the Disciples were miles from shore when they saw what they thought was a spirit. ]esus calmed their fear, saying, "Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid" (Mark 6:50,John 6:19). The winds and waves became calm the moment Jesus stepped into the boat Every child of God has found themselves in a similar situation. Believing we have heard from God we set out to obey; we have gotten into the boat, figuratively speaking, only to find ourselves in the midst of a terrible storm. We are rowing and doing everything we know to do. Jesus seems so far away. In truth, though the darkness surrounds, Jesus sees us toiling, worried we're not going to make it through this storm. He may not remove the stormy situation. He may slowly walk towards us on the very waves that are sending terror through every fiber of our spiritual being. We may not recognize Him at first, but soon He will speak words of comfort, "Be not afraid", He will step into our boat, and what seemed to be certain disaster is settled and over. By pastor leroy aufenkamp The 2013 North Dakota Legislative Assembly was a good session for the Senior Citizen Meal Program. The Legislature increased funding to provide Senior Citizen Meals. For the first time ever, there will be enough funding for all agencies in the state who serve senior meals to receive federal/ state reimbursement for all the meals served. What this means to Pembina County Meal & Transportation is that we will receive $3.90 reimbursement for every meal we serve. In the past, we were only reimbursed for approximately 19,000 meals a year but we served between 25,000 and 26,000 meals. The remainder of our funding for the 6,000 to 7,000 meals came from Mill Levy funds, donations and fund raising. The average full cost to provide meals statewide is $8.00-$9.00. The $3.90 per meal is still only a part of that cost, but the increase to allow all meals to be reimbursed will be a huge benefit to our program and all the others like it across the state. What that means for our agency is that we will have funds to purchase new equipment when it is needed, without having to wait for donations Senior Meals Through Friday August 30th or fund raising. It means we can keep up with the rising cost of groceries and other supplies. It means we can offer employees competitive wages that compare to other businesses in town and the surrounding area. The Legislature also increased Mill Levy Match funding, and public transportation funding. Legislators are realizing that it takes money to provide services that keep people independent and living in their own homes, and are stepping up to the place to provide the funding needed.

Applicants are given the choice of which city they would like their "Bucks" from. The participating Pembina County cities that offer "Bucks" are: Cavalier, Walhalla, and Drayton. Donations are accepted throughout the entire year for this program, not just at Christmas time.

Diane Anthony, Project Coordinator, and Pembina County Social Service Employees Along the Way pain you are in we hurt deeply seeing you like that. I wish I could take all your pain away." Paul Pearshall once said, "Our most basic instinct is not for survival but for family. Most of us would give our own life for the survival of a family member, yet we lead our daily life too often as if we take our family for granted." I know I would, in a split second, give my life for a family member and I also know as life flows haphazardly with its ups and downs, we all need to be reminded of the depths of blessings we have in family. Thank you to my family, I love "Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you're doing, but nobody else does." Continued From Page 4 you more than any words could possibly express. Sometimes along the way when life's difficulties threaten to interrupt our focus, remember one of nature's greatest masterpieces is family. Like the strong oak tree family is what gives us roots, nourishes us with compassion, helps us grow when we are weak, and surrounds us with the grace we are destined to receive.
