A fun filled day of Stavangers' Annual Garden tour on Saturday. Beautiful weather with good friends. We met at Ervin Langseths to caravan to Lori Manns gardens by Ottertail Lake. She gave us some history on the farm, then we took our time and enjoyed her 'woodland' garden, 'Fairy garden', and many other hidden treasures amongst her gardens. Cookies and Lemonade was served. Then we went back to Ervins barn and had lunch. The Stavanger outreach team who sponsered this event, had set up tables with checkered cloths, old enamel coffee pots with a variety of flowers in them. We enjoyed their lunch and visiting. A good day!

On April 14th the Stavanger youth group played Messiah in the 2nd Annual Spring Classic. From the early innings on, it was evident the teams were evenly matched. As the game progressed, the ball clubs traded the lead back and forth. Heading into the 5th, and final inning, Stavanger held a 6 - 5 lead, but with two outs Messiah rallied to regain the lead. In the bottom of the 5th, the Stavanger team attempted a rally of their own, but it was not to be. Messiah held on to win the game 7 - 6. This marks two years in a row that the game has come down to one run. The series is currently tied at one game a piece ---Pastor Troy
