Verdict: Jury finds St. Marie guilty on all counts

Locals teach VBS in remote Canadian village

A team of volunteer missionaries from Faribault and Wadena recently spent a week teaching Vacation Bible School in South Indian Lake, Manitoba, a remote village in northern Canada, in a ministry sponsored by the Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots (LAMP).

Team members included: John Patrick McGrath, Stacey Nelson, Faribault; and Pam Heiden, Wadena.

"The volunteers do great work in bringing the Gospel to people in remote areas of Canada that otherwise often go un-served," said Kent Kaiser, chairman of LAMP's U.S. board. "We're fortunate to have really excellent, committed volunteers."

LAMP presently works in about 60 communities, teaching Vacation Bible School and youth and adult Bible study and leading soccer camps in the summer months. This year, more than 4,000 children, youth, and adults were reached through the ministry of LAMP staff and volunteers. For more information or to make a donation, go to
