Wednesday, July 31, found 175 patriotic friends of the Family Heritage Alliance gathered at Rapid City’s First Assembly of God church building. We were initially privileged to have Qusi Alhaj scheduled as our keynote speaker for the event. However, health issues intervened and we have rescheduled Qusi for our November 20 Black Hills Luncheon. In his absence, we were treated to the music and ministry of local talent, Dallas Bel. Dale Bartscher presented our mission and some of our recent projects. Scott Craig interviewed two individuals close to foster parenting in our area. Pastor Matt Schmidly and his staff did a phenomenal job of hosting the event.
