Speaker for the 7 p.m. service Sept. 10 at First Baptist Church in Viola will be David Ring of Franklin, Tenn. He was born with cerebral palsy and presents a powerful testimony of how the love of Jesus Christ transformed him from "a cerebral palsy victim into a cerebral palsy victor."
Empowered by Jesus Christ, Ring has overcome extreme physical and emotional obstacles to become a messenger of the gospel. In 1971, he was called by God into the ministry: he entered full-time evangelism in 1973.
Ring has been a guest on "The Old Time Gospel Hour" and the "700 Club" and has spoken at numerous conferences, youth rallies and conventions. Speaking engagements take him to over 200 churches annually.
The service is sponsored by the Two Virginias Evangelistic Association, a group recently formed to perpetuate the spirit of evangelism born during the Two Virginias Crusade with Billy Graham Association Ralph Bell held in Princeton this past August.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
