A church in North Dakota has been taking in job hunters that have no home. The Concordia Lutheran Church has been allowing people to sleep in their cars in the church parking lot. Pastor Jay Rinekey says "this is an emergency. People have no place to sleep." That area of North Dakota has been in an oil boom, and people are coming from thousands of miles away for jobs. Rinekey says several of them are taking classes are the church, and two have been baptized. He says "these men are like anyone else. They're just sinners needing the gospel."
