Update:  Canceling the NPD District Conference as planned ... Going to Plan B 

Given the regional and national uncertainty we now face, coupled with the guidelines that the Federal government has advised, we believe it wise to cancel the NPD District Conference as planned … and develop a Plan B that serves our needs. There is high likelihood of extended guidelines that sharply curtail meetings beyond mid-April. This compels prudent and wise planning. It has led us to this decision. 

It will take some time to develop a good Plan B. We will continue to be in touch as we develop and roll out this alternate plan. Your continued prayers for our nation’s leadership at all levels and for the NPD leadership - both pastoral and lay - are appreciated. In this time of global uncertainty, it’s a good time to recall Ps. 46:10 - “Cease striving … and know that I am God.” 

Mel Nelson, on behalf of the NPD District Superintendent and Board
