Valley News & Views Page 5 September 15th, 2011 On September 11, 2001 the nation watched i stunned disbelief at what was happening in New York City, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania. One interviewee this past weekend said he would never have believed the buildings would collapse. He thought they would put the fires out and then begin a massive renovation. They seemed invincible; when in reality nothing on earth is. Today I want to point to One who is unshakable, invincible, and will always be a place of safety and protection. Psalms 18:2 calls God "my high tower" which can never be brought down. It is believed that plane number four was headed for the Capitol building, the symbol of a form of government Bin Laden despised. He wanted to show its vulnerability and weakness. The Bible shows us that God has set in motion a plan that will culminate in a government which will be absolute, eternal and just. Nothing will ever shake or weaken that which is led by "The Prince of Peace" who shall "order it.. [and] establish it with judgment and with justice.., for ever" (Isaiah 9:7). The World Trade Center was attacked because it was the symbol of our economic system. Bin Laden hoped to shake or even collapse our entire economy. Again we see from Scripture that God's economic system for His people will never be touched. Matthew 6:33 saysw, "Seek ye first the kngdom of God and his righteousness, and allt hese things (foods, clothing, basic needs) will be added unto you." Such a system is not dependent on outward circumstances, because they are based in heaven's bank. The Pentagon, America's symbol of security was also attacked. Psalm 144:2 says God is "my fortress., and .. shield". America's symbols may one day collapse, but God's never will. Why not place you rlife in His hands today? by pastor leroy aufenkamp There are some important dates coming up that senior citizens may want to remember. The Medicare Part D annual enrollment period is October 15th-December 7th, 2011. This is a little earlier than past years, so please don't think you have until December 31st to change plans. Everyone is encouraged to review their Medicare Part D plan annually. You may be taking different medications than you were last year, a different planmaybe offering coverage that they weren't offering last year, or you current plan may be making changes in 2011. Your current plan may be the one that ends up still being the best for you, but it doesn't hurt to compare different plans.

Cowboy On a Mission for Hungry Kids Continued From Page 1 Funny the way things work sometimes. When I drove into town on Tuesday morning, I noticed a horse tied and grazing in the lot out front of the Red River Resort Motel. You'd think that would be noteworthy, but being accustomed to horses and goats all over the place, it seemed quite normal to me. I figured it to be just a new horse in town. Later, I was told that the horse was actually a visitor, staying at the motel, along with a companion horse and a cowboy. I decided I'd better grab my camera and see ff I could find something worth photographing. Heading north down main street Tuesday morning, I spotted a cowboy heading north on horseback, with pack horse in tow. I pulled ahead of him near Halcrow Ford and then got out to take a quick picture. Friendly, he stopped and we began to chat some. As his story began to unfold, it wassn't long before Wayne Stegman had spotted the All meals served with whole wheat Ixead, malgarine and 10 milk. horses and came over to join ggeul  is $3.511.  60, $8.75. us. Pembina County Meals and Transportation - Call: 4,54-6586 Found out his name was "Doc" Mishler, actually, T. Lawrence "Doc" Mishler. He said he had left Florida on March 14th on horseback and was currently on his way to Forest River to visit the Hutterite Colony there. That's a long ride, but it was a bit of an understatement. Turns out Doc is a bit of a legend and has been crisscrossing the United States on horseback since 2002. Just Google his name and you'll find hundreds of articles from all over the United States about Doc and his mission, from New York City to California.. Doc is 75 years old, but looks a lot younger. He noted he was .doing pretty well for someone who was diagnosed with cancer in 1996, with a dark prognosis. At the time he was teaching philosophy at the University of West Michigan. He took up praying and natural herbs to fight the cancer and inspired by "Bread for the Journey" founder Wayne Muller, he pulled up stakes and moved to Montana. In 2002 he sold everything he owned and decided to ride horseback from Montana to California, to Crawford, Texas and The Sugar Bowl Senior Citizens would like to thank the following for their memorial donations: JACK BROWN MEMORIALS Don and Marlene Bates Charlotte and Hector Beauchamp LOIS OSOSKI MEMORIALS Ron and Corrine Chapman Family of Lois Ososki Washington, D.C., in hopes or raising awareness and money to feed hungry children. He's been been doing that sort of thing ever since. A cowboy preacher, he notes of feeding the hungry, that, "God has given us to care for one another .... the church marquees say, 'God bless America/but America is already blessed. We need to put that blessing forward." He's got the cowboy sense of humor. For example, when asked about his plans, he answers with, "you want to hear God laugh .... tell him you have a plan." Though not much for planning, he does believe childhood hunger can be beat. He's even gone before Congress to speak about it. He says everyone has a gift to give that can help stop world hunger; people just need to step up and contribute. If everyone would use their gifts we could stop hunger. Plain and simple cowboy logic. He says, "God has given man the capacity to conquer and control hunger; we just need to stop spending and wasting money and give." He's got a good point there. Doc has suffered a few hardships that come with age. He is a cancer survivor, had quadruple by-pass surgery, a complete hip replacement and recently a broken pelvis. None of them have kept him down. Quite an inspiration. All that experience and still living with purpose and a smile, makes him a person worth listening to. David L.
