Valley News & Views Page 5 November 22nd, 2012 .....................................  ; Is it possible to be both thankflfl and unthankful at the same time about the same thing? I would say "yes'. For example, I am also thankful that after a hot, dry summer we received both rain and snow in sufficient amounts to help us going into the winter, but I am not thankful that it came just as beet harvest began or that it continued until the last beet was frozen in the rain- soaked field. Finally, while I am not thankful that at times I still sin, I am thankful for I John 2:1, which says, "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous." Jesus is God's gift to humanity-- "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). I am thankful that through faith in Jesus Christ my sinful past is forgiven. I am thanicful that He gave me eternal life when I believed in and surrender my life to Him. And I am thankful that this same gift of new life now and eternally is for "whosoever believes in Jesus" by pastor leroy aufenkamp Leah Austi]ord, who has been our Outreach Worker, has taken over van driving duties in the Cavalier area. Because of her new driving responsibilities, she recently attended a driver certification class in Minot-Passenger Service and Safety, Defensive Driving and Maltreatment Awareness were the topics covered in the three day class. The Outreach Program is being eliminated by the state and replaced with a new program called Options Counseling-Aging & Disability Resource Link. Leah will continue to visit people in their homes who are receiving or requesting home delivered meals. There is still an assessment form that needs to be completed to qualify people for home delivered meals. The change to our program is that the HDM assessment is now considered part of the meal program and not part of the Outreach Program. Leah will now be known as the Home Delivered Meal Manager. She will continue to talk with clients about other needs they may have and make referrals for them to agencies that may be able to help with those needs. The change for us is that we will not be actively seeking out people to see what needs they may have. Leah will only be visiting people who are receiving or requesting home delivered meals. Clients with other needs will be referred to the Options Counseling - Aging & Disability Resource Link office at the Greater Grand Forks Senior Citizen Association. They will be providing Options Counseling for our whole region which includes the counties of Grand Forks, Nelson, Pembina and Walsh. This change in services is a federal program change. We are not sure how it is going to work; the first year will be a learning experience and a challenge. We have two Alzheimer's Association classes coming up. Ashley Magner from the Alzheimer's Association will present "Understanding MemoryLoss" onWednesday, November 14th, and "Caring Through The Holidays" on Wednesday, November 28th. The presentations will be at 12:25 p.m. at the Drayton Senior Citizen Center. The public is invited to attend.
