Training and Jesse James Days

We had some training with a couple who is just beginning the b2g ministry in Kansas City. We learned the history of the b2g ministry here in Minneapolis. On Saturday, we went to "The Defeat of Jesse James Days" in Northfield, MN. In Sept of 1876, Jesse James and his gang rode into Northfield intending to rob the bank. The townspeople and the bank employees successfully stopped the robbery and this eventually helped lead to the defeat of the James-Younger gang.
Every year, the town does a reenactment. (in order: The Bank, the Innocent Bystanders, The Robbers, The Plan, The Shootout, The End)
