My how Time has flown!

I’ll try to give a update on the busy, busy last several months. The first two pictures are of our Gathering Place Thanksgiving meal. We served 65 people… the full meal deal!

The second set is from our Christmas Celebration on December 4th. We had 189 people attend, of which 89 were kids. We read the Christmas story, sang carols, had a fun story by our friend Dave Lysaker and his puppet, Andy. We then allowed the kids to shop in our “Toy Mall” and each child was allowed to pick out their own new unwrapped present. Lots of smiles and laughs.

The Third set is of our fall coat giveaway in late October, we gave away over 150 coats in a few hour period. Glad we had the coats to give. The last several weeks as you can imagine have been very busy with the cold weather and snow that we are experiencing in the north country.

I couldn’t get the computer to put them in the proper order, but I’m sure you’ll figure it out!

Enjoy the pictures!

I apoligize for being so lax with the website. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to do all the things that need to be done! New Year’s resolution….do better in 2017!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Bakken Oil Rush Ministry.

Today’s article in the McKenzie County Farmer tells our story!

Bakken Oil Rush Ministry is approaching a financial deadline. The attached newspaper article tells our story in a nutshell. It’s easier to attach than re-write it out.

Please pass it on to family and friends that would be interested in what we do here in the Bakken and may be willing to help support this ministry.
