Bismarck, N.D. – In this “Know the Truth” video, Chaplain Sam Saylor explains how he became involved in serving law enforcement during the protest response when Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier invited him to come to daily operations briefings and open the meetings with prayer.
“I thought it was very important when this started to make sure to get a chaplain here because I know the value of prayer,” says Kirchmeier. “We want to make sure that everybody stays safe physically and mentally throughout this entire event and the chaplains play a big role within that.”
