's Rev. Morris Janssen Ely Gospel Tabernacle of the Old Testament tell us that in the end time Jerusalem will be compassed with armies. The prophet Ezekiel Chapters 38-39 mentions that the armies of the north will come against Israel and cover it as a cloud, but that God will help Israel and that all but I 6 of the army of the north will be destroyed. It will take Israel seven months to bury these dead and because Russia is now making its war materials out of wood treated with chemical so that it will be harder then medal but will burn and will provide Israel with fuel for seven years. Why does God always seem i~o help Israel and why have they suffered as no other nation? God said to Abraham "I will bless them that bless Thee, and curse him that curseth Thee." Gen. 12 ::L God is faithful to his promise. They have s~'fered because of their rejection of Christ. When Pilate said "l am innocent of the blood of the just one," the Jews cried out "His blood be upon us and our children." Matt. 27:24,25. STRANGERS The laws that God gave to Israel included special laws concerning the treatment of strangers: "You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt" (Exodus 22.21 ) "Love the sojourner, . .for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt" (Deuteronomy 10.16 ) "You shall not pervert the justice due to the sojourner...But you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt and the Lord your God redeemed you from there." ( Deuteronomy 24.17 ) The law of Moses commanded the Israelites not to oppress the stranger. Beside the negative command, there was a positive command: love~he sojourner.

For their benefit God commanded special rules. A stranger often finds it hard to get established in a new location. Especially if he speaks a different language, has different customs, clothing, religion or ethnic background from those around him. These differences set him apart. He may even be redieuled because of them. It is easier for the unscrupulous to take advantage of a stranger. He doesn't know the ways of his new home. He is unfamiliar with the prices, customs, and laws of the area. He doesn't have friends in high places that can help him out. He can be taken advantage of very easily. People are very comfortable in the midst of their own group of friends and acquaintances that they have known for a long time. It is very easy to be friendly only to your friends and forget about every one else. It is difficult for strangers to enter such groups. Wlaenever strangers come into our midst, we often feel threatened by their presence. We question their motives for being there and wonder what kind of influence they will bring with them. Will they attempt to change our set ways and our long observed customs? Will they start to interfere with the way we have everything arranged~? As a result strangers are often looked upon with suspicion. Prejudices arise m this manner. History has countless examples of people of various ethnic, racial, and religious groups being persecuted simply because they were different from the rriajority around them. It is very easy to think of strangers as nameless members of a crowd rather than as individual human beings. Jesus challenges us with these questions: "If you love those who love you, what credit is thal In you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same." (Luke 6.:32-33 J. In dealing with strangers, the follower of Jesus Christ is called upon not to ignore them. Rather he is commanded to take the initiative and break the barriers that separate people and extend God's love to those around him regardless of who they are. Once again girls from twelve Ely Girl Scout troops are offering their services to the good citizens of their town. In April, on KEEP AMERICA BEAUTIFUL DAY, they were out in droves scouring the hi~hwaw and the byways, oicking up the litter, haulin~ it t, tho recycling center or the landfill, and sorting recyelables.

In the 19th century explorers of the Artic wilderness traveled by water as much as possible. The various attempts to be first at the North Pole were concluded over the polar ice cap by dog sled. Since 1909 and Robert E. Peary's successful dash by dog sled to the North Pole from Ellsemere Island, few persons have covered the distances traveled by Bill Cooper in reaching and traversing the Artic wastelands. (Wally Herbert, well-known Canadian Artic and Antartic explorer, is one of these Herbert's latest feat as leader of the British Trans Artic Expedition, was to spend sixteen months with five companions traveling by dog sled from Point Barrow Alaska to the island of Spitzbergen, passing over the North Pole, enroute). Bill Cooper, a native of Hythe, Alberta, is a licensed Canadian guide and veteran Artic Traveler. Because his Father never became a Canadian citizen, Cooper could choose American citizenship and did so when he joined the armed service in 1951. Following his tour of duty he became a cross-country trucker and collected information for the "Truckers Guide, Low Underpasses and Scales", published in 1963. Cooper met the snowmobile in 1962 when he and his family settled briefly in Circle Pines, Minnesota. Later, after he purchased property in Willow River, which he now calls home, he and his snowmobile became almost inseparable! Sometime in late 1~8 he first conceived the idea of leading a snowmobile expedition around the world - even his best friends thought he had lost his mind !
