The cost of protecting Zimmerman joins Viborg Ambulance crew Turner County Monique R. Hurtado | Staff writer [emailprotected]

The Turner County Sheriff’s Department serves not only the entire county, but also contracts for the towns of Davis, Dolton, Hurley, Marion, Monroe, and Parker. They normally run on a full staff of eight officers, however they have been running on a staff of only six full time officers, which has been costing the county hours and hours of overtime. They recently had a part-time officer join the force and while that does ease the burden a tad, it does not solve the staff shortage. Statistically, Hutchinson County Sheriff department has offered the lowest starting pay for incoming depuProtecting on Page 4 

Renae Hansen | Writer The Viborg Ambulance is happy to welcome Branden Zimmerman to their crew! Branden lives in Viborg along with his wife Kelli, daughter Cami and son Caden, and has been employed by Poet in Hudson for the past eleven years. Branden took advantage of the online option to take the EMT course, which consisted of two days a week of online classes and one hands-on lab in Sioux Falls one Saturday a month. The class normally runs around $850, but Branden was able to attend the class free of charge due to a grant that currently covers the cost. The opportunity to attend under that grant will also take place this Fall. When asked what inter-

Branden Zimmerman is the newest member of the Viborg Ambulance crew. (Photo/Renae Hansen) ested him in becoming an EMT, Branden said that he noticed that our ambulance was getting fewer and fewer people and that he wanted to be able to help out. He also wanted the challenge of doing something new, and the EMT course was a way of do-

ing that while helping out his community. There is a pretty extensive background check that takes two to three months to complete, so until that is finished Branden is still technically a driver, but has been with the crew since the end of February. When asked if he would recommend taking the course and becoming an EMT to others, Branden says “There’s some calls that nobody wants to go to and some stuff you don’t want to see, but it’s a good feeling that you were there and tried everything you could to help”, adding “I would encourage people that are thinking about it and wanting to possibly do it that it’s definitely doable and the course isn’t too bad”.

Stamp Out Hunger drive a success

s i n c e

The second Saturday in May is the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive hosted by the National Association of Letter Carriers. Notices were distributed to postal patrons in advance to encourage participation in the drive. Postal customers are then asked to fill a bag with healthy, non-perishable food items and place by the mailbox. The letter carrier then picks up the donations and delivers them to food banks and pantries in our local communities.

The combined effort of Turner County residents and the Post Office resulted in hundreds of pounds of groceries for local pantries. Viborg gathered 32 pounds of food for the Viborg Food Pantry. The combined offices of Parker, Hurley, and Marion put together 352 pounds of donations that were taken to the Turner County Food Pantry, and Chancellor and Davis gathered 42 pounds that went to the Lennox Ebenezer Presbyterian Exchange program. Irene collected 150 pounds and Centerville collected ten pounds of food.

Wakonda Legion, Auxiliary planning Memorial Day observances Riva Sharples/writer It is a busy week and weekend for members of the Wakonda Legion and Wakonda Legion Auxiliary. Auxiliary members, alongside the Legion, will be putting on multiple events to remember and honor veterans over the coming week. “It is a busy week,” admits Legion Auxiliary President Donna Henriksen. “But this is what we are all about, honoring and working alongside our veterans and remembering those that gave their all for freedom!” The ladies kicked off their Memorial Day

observations this week by placing canisters containing poppies in Wakonda businesses. Everyone is encouraged to take and wear a poppy in remembrance of veterans. The poppy is a symbol worn around the world to honor and remember veterans on various holidays. Sales of poppies help raise funds for veterans organizations, and in the United States, Memorial Day is the most popular time to wear poppies. The poppy as a symbol comes from the famous 1915 poem “In Flanders Fields.” Wakonda Legion auxiliary members will place poppies on Auxiliary member graves this week to remember those who are no

longer here. On Friday, the ladies will host a Memorial Day program at the Wakonda Heritage Manor for residents. They will serve root beer floats afterwards. On Memorial Day, Legion members will perform the traditional cemetery firings. Here is their schedule: 8:15 a.m. – North Catholic (St. Columbkille); 9:00 a.m. – Pleasant Valley; 9:15 a.m. – Bethel Baptist; 9:30 a.m. – South Lodi; 10:00 a.m. – South Catholic; 10:30 a.m. – Union Cemetery; 10:45 a.m. – Wakonda Heritage Manor; 10:55 a.m. – Veteran’s Memorial in Wakonda; and 11:00 a.m. – Legion Program at the Post 13

Poppy Day in Wakonda is May 26, 2023 The Wakonda American Legion Auxiliary invites area residents to participate in Poppy Day, May 26, 2023, by supporting your Veterans and wearing the red poppy. Poppies were available at the Irene-Wakonda Elementary Program on Monday, May 15 at the Wakonda Gym and are also located at Wakonda Businesses throughout town. Each year, the American Legion Auxiliary’s three-quarters of a million members – direct female relatives of wartime veterans – raise more than $5.5 million through the distribution of the symbolic red poppies to support active-duty military, veterans, and their families. The red poppy has become a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice worn by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for our country in all wars. It reminds Americans of the sacrifices made by our veterans while protecting our freedoms. One hundred percent of the donations collected directly support the needs of veterans, military, and their families. Quick Facts The red poppy came to symbolize the blood shed pro-

tecting Americans’ freedom following publication of the wartime poem “In Flanders Fields” written by Lt. Col. John McCrae, M.D., while serving on the front in WWI, to honor soldiers killed in battle. Veterans handcraft the flowers with assistance from unpaid volunteers. The veterans not only earn a small wage, which helps to supplement their incomes and makes them feel more self-sufficient, but the physical and mental activity provides many therapeutic benefits for the veteran. A veteran who devotes five to six hours per day assembling the red crepe paper poppies can make as many as 2,000 to 3,000 poppies in a week. Volunteers do not sell poppies – they “distribute” them, with a request that the person receiving the poppy make a donation to the poppy fund to support the Auxiliary’s veteran outreach programs. Founded in 1919 to support the work of The American Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary is recognized as the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization.

Hall. Wakonda’s Memorial Day Program will be held Monday, May 29, at 11:00 a.m. at the Wakonda Legion Hall, sponsored by the Wakonda American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary. The speaker this year will be Col. Brad Lowe USMC Retired. Ron Prusa will be honored with a 50-year membership plaque. Auxiliary ladies will host a Memorial Day meal as part of the program, serving ham, turkey breast, potatoes, corn, and salads to take place after the program for a free will donation. Veterans eat for free. All are invited and encouraged to attend the event.

Poker Run for HOSA Faydra Christensen | Writer It turned out to be not such a bad night for a little fun around the town of Hurley on Friday night. Tom and Linda Nelson coordinated a small-engine poker run to raise money for HOSA ( Health Occupations Students of America) which is for future health professionals. The Poker Run started off at the Hurley Bar, and made stops at Derby’s, the Frankus Household, Jorgensen Trucking, the Wurtz household, and finished at the Nelsons. All top placed winners, Julie Sawyer, Tom Nelson, and Tommy Wurtz donated their winnings back to HOSA. All together, the poker run raised $1,007.00. This is Viborg-Hurley’s first year hosting a HOSA chapter, so imagine the surprise

when they had two students qualify for National competition and you can also imagine the lack of funds the chapter had being in existence for such a short time. The two students who qualified were Zoey Christensen in Vet Science and Shane Harms in Sports Medicine. So, the chapter has been on a fundraising frenzy since April to try to afford the cost of traveling to the National HOSA Convention in Dallas, TX in June. Along with the poker run, parents stocked the concession stand for home softball games, and students have gone to businesses to ask for donations. Thank you to all who have donated, and if you would like to donate, donations are accepted by any HOSA student and/or the school.

“Welcome to Hurley” sign gets an update Renae Hansen | Writer When Charlie Larsen drew a picture years ago of what he thought the Welcome to Hurley sign he had in mind should look like and published it in the Hurley Leader, he included a note saying that if anyone wanted to make any changes they should let him know or “keep their mouth shut”. Apparently everyone agreed, since the sign went up as planned with lots of support from the Hurley community. When well-known Hurley resident Eldon Harmon passed away, his wife Jan donated memorial money to the city, which helped plant the seed for the sign. More money was donated and a bricklayer hired, and the work began. Charlie’s wife, Meredith Goodhope Hansen Larsen, donated some land for the cause, and Morris Larsen

Old welcome sign gave four fourteen-foot tall pine trees for the spot. A tree mover from Tea was hired to move the trees from Morris’s place five miles southwest of Davis, and Charlie tells us that even though they had several breakdowns along the way,

the trees eventually found their way to their new home in Hurley. After twenty some years, many of the bricks had started to crumble and the sign needed a little TLC, so bids were taken to redo the sign,

with the lone bid coming from Centerville. Once again, the people of Hurley donated their labor and money to give the sign the facelift that it

needed. Charlie would like to thank all of the good people of Hurley who helped with the sign, both at its beginning stages

and with the recent update. Because of the help of those people, the sign is once again ready to welcome visitors to town.

Daneville Heritage Museum By: Cheri O’Dell Our recent visitors have been coming from near (across the street from the Viborg-Hurley Elementary) and far (across the ocean from Denmark). Last week, on Monday, we were honored to host Torben Groengaard Jeppesen and his wife Jette from Odense, Denmark. Mr. Jeppesen has quite impressive credentials (read more in an article written by New Era Writer – Renae Hansen). After a very interesting visit we sent the Jeppesens on their way with a copy of our Viborg Centennial Book to assist in his research and a museum t-shirt to remember us. On Wednesday we greeted twenty-five excited third graders and their teacher, Mrs. Anderson for a tour and scavenger hunt at the museum. They had many great comments and questions. We love to see the enthusiasm of our young visitors! We hope we lit a little flame of interest in our history. The saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” certainly rings true. Mange tak to the city maintenance guys, Jody and Randall, for saving some treasures from the trash. We won’t name names of where they came, but

Viborg Public Library news Linda Jorgensen | Assistant Librarian It looks like it’s going to be a very busy summer at the library. Summer Reading sign-up is complete and we have 46 kids registered. We’ve been really busy lining up fun activities and think the kids are going to have a great time. Books have been ordered for our Tween Book Club which begins June 5. This is a new experience for us and we are hoping the kids will enjoy our weekly meetings. I know I am looking forward to what the kids have to offer when we begin discussing our first book which is “The Forgotten Girl”.

Freeman museum offers free admission to teachers FREEMAN: Heritage Hall Museum & Archives is again inviting area teachers to visit the museum as their guests this summer. “We’re offering free admission to teachers in the larger community this summer to give them an inside look at what we have to offer,” said Marnette D. (Ortman) Hofer, who is executive director & archivist at the Freeman museum. “We want to be a partner in education for our area youth,” she said. “A visit here can help ‘unlock history’ for students in the 202324 school year. We’ll be glad to provide a personalized tour to any teacher who wants to learn more.” “We’re particularly eager to show off our updated Natural World Gallery, which includes our mosasaur exhibit and a refreshed diorama of native animals. A new forces of nature area highlights some of the hardships of living on the prairie; that includes a display of photos of the tornado that caused major damage here in 1965.” The museum has 25,000 square feet of galleries containing a wide array of interesting artifacts and exhibits. The exhibits tell the immigration story of Germans-fromRussia settlers and others who arrived in southeastern Dakota Territory in the 1870s, persevered and helped build the Freeman community. “With more than 20,000 artifacts, our exhibits are an excellent resource for studies on South Dakota and Native American history,” Hofer noted.

“From the Front Porch” Renae Hansen | Writer [emailprotected]

Congratulations to Mac Sorlien on hitting a hole in one at Glenwood Golf Course on Sunday. From the smile on his face on the golf course’s Facebook page, it looks like he was a pretty happy guy about the accomplishment. The family of Kay Gordon found a wonderful way to remember her this past Sunday. Her daughters Toni and Nicole had heard that the lake was trying to get a new sprayer for mosquitos, and they also knew that Kay was passionate about the cause and “bought every gadget out there to get rid of them”. They then decided to do a “Margaritas for Mom” to not only honor her birthday on May 22 but to do a little fundraiser to help pay for the sprayer in their mother’s name. Kay was a well known “lake person” and we can’t think of a better way to remember her for her birthday. It may have been a small engine poker run that was held in Hurley last Friday night but it had some mighty big results, raising $1,070 to help send the Viborg-Hurley HOSA students to Nationals in Dallas, TX this summer. Four kids are going for this once in a lifetime opportunity, and their fundraising goal to send them is $3,000, so the funds raised during the poker run will put a nice dent in that. All of the winners donated their winnings back to the cause, and some people just donated money. We love to see how much support our kids get from our communities for causes like these. The Viborg library had some special guests recently.

Assistant Librarian Lori Jorgensen is in the midst of goat birthing season, with over 80 babies being born so far and more to come, and many of the babies require a little extra TLC that often includes bottle-feeding. She found herself in a bind when she was scheduled to work at the library on a day that she also had two baby goats that required frequent feedings, but if you know my sister Lori you know she can solve almost any problem she encounters, so she loaded the babies up in a laundry basket and headed to work with them in tow. The babies were a huge hit with the kids that came in that day, and also with quite a few adults, but they sure didn’t remember to hush when they were in the library. Not that anyone was complaining, the bleating of the baby goats was adorable. She’s had requests to bring them back with her, but in true goat style they’ve already outgrown the laundry basket and are living the good life in the goat pen at Jorgensen’s farm. We were sad to hear that Alene Wiebesiek passed away last week, just three days after her 100th birthday. I’ve heard so many people that when they heard the news say “she was such a sweet lady”, and that she definitely was. Our sympathy to her family and friends. She will be missed. It’s hard to believe that the school bell will be ringing for the last time this week and the kids will be out for the summer. When I look back at my childhood, I find that it’s the summers that I miss the most. The sleeping in every morning, the days spent swimming at the lake and the evenings spent playing ball, taking the bus to swimming lessons and playing with my friends, there are just so many good memories of summers growing up here in Viborg. I hope the kids all have a great summer too, and I hope they look back some day with as fond of memories as I have of growing up here on our front porch.

letter to the editor Recently, a reporter got fired for sending a prank call to a so-called “friend.” The recipient of the prank call said he felt “threatened” by the call. The reporter was made to apologize and plead guilty to a Class 2 misdemeanor and pay a fine. There is no question that this was a lapse in judgment. But compare this, and the reaction to it, to what is currently being pulled on landowners across the state and political leaders’ reaction to that. I was in Leola on Monday, May 15, 2023, for a rally put on by landowners who are having the biggest prank of their lives played on them. There are landowners all over the state that are being threatened with Eminent Domain by a private company, Summit Carbon Solutions, to build a pipeline to carry highly pressurized CO2 and dump it in the ground in North Dakota. Approximately 15 or so present and past legislators were there to support the landowners and speak on property rights. Why do I call this the biggest prank of their lives? Because the person who felt “threatened” by the prank call from that reporter, is the same person who a lot of these landowners voted for to represent them as the party chair of the South Dakota GOP, Dan Leder-

man. He is now one of dozens of paid lobbyists for an out-of-state company who has a stake in this pipeline. Talk about getting pranked! The constant fear of lawsuits, intimidation, condemnation and threats by the company Lederman represents, Summit Carbon Solutions, are real and now part of the landowners’ everyday lives. Over 80 South Dakota landowners have been served with condemnation lawsuits for their land. Four counties have been sued by Summit because of ordinances put in place to protect their citizens. Jokes aside, it is not actually a prank at all, but an attack on the constitutional liberties of generations of South Dakotans. Not only do the landowners feel threatened by the possible use of Eminent Domain by a private company, but they also feel betrayed by the elected officials, whom they have elected to protect their rights, have voted against bill after bill after bill to protect them from this pipeline company and the loss of their property rights. If we are all honest with ourselves, this pipeline is just the beginning and is part of a bigger issue. I represent District 3, mainly the city of Aberdeen, and I ask you this question: when will it be your house

or your business or your church taken by Eminent Domain because someone else determines what is best use of that property? We as elected officials have been told this will be so good for “economic development.” When people who want to move to our state find out that one of their basic rights, property rights, is not being defended from a private company, they won’t move here. What makes moving to South Dakota desirable is that we honor freedom, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness… and owning land and working that land is someone’s pursuit of happiness. Economic Development will happen when we keep our state the most desirable place to live and raise a family. I believe a HUGE apology is needed from many elected officials who have been trusted by their constituents to protect these rights and many others and have failed to do so. It is not too late for political leaders across the state to protect our constitutionally protected rights! Brandei Schaefbauer District 3 SD House of Representatives

Too many veterans lose their life to drug addiction Veronica Raussin | Community Outreach Coordinator This Memorial Day, millions of American families will take time to honor the memory of the men and women who lost their lives fighting in the nation’s wars. It can be a challenging day for Veterans, their families, and friends. It can also be a harsh reminder of all the veterans who made it home but lost their lives to substance use, suicide, or overdose. Too many veterans lose their lives to drug addiction. It takes communities and families to intervene to help these men and women get the support they need. In South Dakota are over 60,000 veterans, most of whom are wartime vets. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, over 3.9 million veterans nationwide have a substance use disorder or mental illness. Additionally, substance use disorders significantly increase suicidality among veterans ages 18 and older. Suicidal thoughts and behaviors are also common among veterans ages 18 to 49. Community-based treatment and recovery services are critical for veterans struggling with

these problems. “Early intervention does save lives, but it can be challenging for friends and families to know what to do or say or where to find help,” said Michael Leach of There is no simple answer to the question of why veterans become addicted to or dependent on drugs and alcohol. However, there are numerous causative factors. For instance, many veterans struggle to adjust to civilian life. They may experience financial hardships, difficulty finding employment, or accessing benefits. Veterans are also at a higher risk of experiencing mental and emotional health concerns because of their military service. This can often be compounded with physical injury and chronic pain. Untreated trauma among veterans is all too common. All or some of this leads to drug or alcohol use to cope with mental or physical pain. Outside of the usual supports provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the VA facility locator, there are other options to consider: • The South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation has services

available to veterans; • The South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs provides resources for veterans and their families; • Helpful hotlines include the Veterans Crisis Line, 1-800-273-8255, or the Lifeline for Vets, 1-888777-4443; • SAMHSA has a treatment facility locator where veterans can find specific programs for their needs. Families are also critical when supporting a loved one who is struggling with addiction. It’s ok to express concern. Begin the conversation by speaking to them openly and honestly about their drug and alcohol use. Take steps to intervene. Offer them help to find treatment. Be compassionate and patient with what they are going through. When communities and families come together, amazing things happen. It’s never too late to offer a helping hand, advocate for more resources, and speak up for veterans who are struggling in silence. Veronica Raussin is a Community Outreach Coordinator for, passionate about spreading awareness of the risks and dangers of alcohol & drug use.

garden to go

The Dandelion debate Donna Rumbaugh | Extension Master Gardener [emailprotected]

If you haven’t heard, May is now considered No Mow May in many towns. This is when mowing ordinances are given a pass to allow the dandelions to grow to help the bees. The trending new thought process is that letting the early flowering weeds grow uncontrolled is helpful to pollinators. This trend has gotten pretty heated and has pitted neighbors against each other, reprimanding them for spraying or mowing the weeds, while others are angry with those who let their yards turn into virtual jungles claiming it’s “for the bees”. Personally I think the whole thing was thought up by people looking for an excuse to not have to mow their lawns, so I am going to throw the horse hockey flag on this theory. Now before you get all up in a roar and start yelling about the poor pollinators and how they need to have these weeds to pollinate, let me plead my case. I, too, am and advocate for the pollinators. I have a pollinator garden out in my pasture, so you see, I am not the evil bee killer. But just like humans, there are some things that are better for bees, and some things that they might like, but are not so good for them and dandelions are like crack for bees. Leaving dandelions to destroy your lawn, and your neighbors lawns in order to benefit pollinators is like leaving your toddler unattended on a daily basis with nothing but all you can eat Twinkies. Dandelions are not very nutritious for bees, but they are full of nutritional benefits for humans! Pollen from trees like willows, maple and fruit trees have higher

Dandelions can quickly take over lawns and choke out grass. (photo/Alexxis McKenney) food value for bees than the yellow weeds. Some will argue that dandelions are important because they bloom so early, providing the first flower. hockey! Trees put out pollen way before the dandelions do, and violas, tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, crocus and calendula bloom first, followed by many spring borage crops. If you feel like you need to feed the bees by not controlling the dandelions in your yard, then by all means, go for it. It’s your yard after all. But take into consideration the effects of your choices have on your neighbors lawns as well. I feel like letting your weeds seed out to become noxious is worse than letting your dog do his business in the neighboring yards and just leaving it there. Remember, unlike Vegas, what happens in your yard does not necessarily stay in your yard.

Fallen, but not forgotten Wakonda man sentenced for theft in connection with health care

Greg Whitlock | SDDVA Memorial Day stands as a solemn American tradition that honors the sacrifices of those who have served. It is a day we dedicate to those who fell in defense of the ideals, beliefs, and values we hold sacred. As a nation, we must remember these heroes and their sacrifices. We must remember what they did, why they did it, and appreciate what it means to each of us individually and to the entire nation. America has been blessed as no other country in the history of the world has ever been. The sacrifices of our armed forces have given us the security and the freedom to grow and flourish as a nation. Throughout our nation’s history, the freedoms we enjoy have been won and protected by an elite group that understands the greatest and most selfless love. The men and women of our armed forces risk the ultimate sacrifice to protect fellow

Americans and citizens of the world from tyranny and oppression. Every time they put on the uniform, these heroes renew their commitment to pay any price, to bear any burden, so that we might be free. Daniel Webster once said, “Let their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.” On this Memorial Day, let us all pledge to renew our dedication to the true meaning of the day. Let us all enjoy the lives we lead because of the generations of Americans who gave their lives for freedom. And let us continue to educate our children about the price paid for their freedom. Our greatest duty to the men and women who have died in service to our country is to never forget what they have done for each of us. They led colorful, vivid, and passionate lives, and we owe it to them and their families to honor and pay tribute to their sacrifice.

United States Attorney Alison J. Ramsdell announced today that U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier has sentenced a Wakonda, South Dakota, man convicted of Theft in Connection with Health Care. The sentencing took place on May 15, 2023. Cody Carstensen, age 47, was sentenced to two years of probation and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100. Carstensen was also ordered to pay restitution. Carstensen was indicted

by a federal grand jury in October of 2022. He pleaded guilty on January 23, 2023. The conviction stemmed from incidents between June of 2019 and February of 2022, when Carstensen, who was a registered pharmacist in Scotland, South Dakota, knowingly and willfully embezzled, stole, and converted without authority several drugs valued at more than $100. Carstensen, in his capacity as pharmacist, received deliveries of controlled sub-

stances intended for a hospital and pharmacy. Instead of placing all of the delivered controlled substances in the inventory for the hospital and pharmacy, he stole the substances from several deliveries and used them for his own purposes. This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann M. Hoffman prosecuted the case

Alene Wiebesiek

Brought to His Knees Sue Schmidt | Correspondent Saul gave his approval to have Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, stoned to death. Stephen was the first martyr, the first to give his life for the gospel. Stephen had the courage to stand up for what he believed and who he believed in-Jesus Christ. Many were saved because of Stephen’s ministry and death. Saul, the reason for Stephen’s death, would soon become God’s chosen instrument to reach the unsaved. Saul had no idea he would be called to fill Stephen’s shoes; God’s ways are beyond our ways. Saul also known as Paul endangered Christians with death threats. He was so zealous for his cause he went to the high priest requesting letters to the synagogues in Damascus. Saul needed their cooperation in arresting the followers that believed Jesus was and is the way to salvation. His intention was to take them as prisoners back to Jerusalem in chains. But Jesus intervened with a blinding light from heaven shone down around Paul. He fell to the ground and heard God’s voice on the Damascus Road, “I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting,” Acts 9:5. Jesus explains believers are the body of Christ and if anyone persecutes believers, they are persecuting Christ. The men who traveled with Saul heard a voice but didn’t see anyone. When Saul stood and opened his eyes, he was blind. During the time Saul’s sight was taken from him he had many thoughts going through his mind. He was no doubt scared what would happen next and would he remain blind. He had visions of all the Christians he had persecuted. Jesus brought Saul to his knees literally and figuratively. God doesn’t explain Himself nor should He. Saul needed to learn to trust Him. The men led Saul to Damascus where he stayed for three days neither eating nor drinking. Saul was spiritually blind and God seized his attention by making him physically blind. Jesus knew who Saul would be for His honor and glory. Jesus transformed Saul to Paul, from murderer to missionary; from persecutor to persecuted. As scales fell from Paul’s eyes and he could see again, he was baptized and ate to regain his strength. He was filled with the Holy Spirit, gained a new perspective, a new purpose and a Savior to follow. Paul no longer battled with his notorious nature because God opened his eyes to see his sinfulness. This incident was enough to grab Paul’s attention, move him to repentance and live for the Lord until his last breath. Paul personally experienced Jesus’ forgiveness, acceptance and powerful love. Jesus opened his heart to a new life with his Savior. Paul was transformed and Jesus became so real to him he immediately began preaching in the synagogues, “He is indeed the Son of God.” Many were amazed because Paul had caused such devastation among the believers but Paul’s preaching became more and more influential. REFLECTION - Paul is only one example of millions of us today that no one is beyond the conversion power of God. He redeems us and prepares us for His purpose to spread the Gospel message. Paul’s message of salvation was the most important message in his generation and continues to be today. If you know Jesus as your Savior you are part of the message why Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected. This is your exciting even extraordinary life and it needs to be shared with people that don’t know they need Jesus. Paul lived his life with Christ at the center of his message. Paul came face to face with persecution time and time again but he didn’t or wouldn’t give up preaching about the cross. We need to share our Damascus Road testimony; it may bring someone to their knees in prayer and repentance.
