Men’s Prayer Breakfast – March 15

Join us for a Men’s Prayer Breakfast, Saturday March 15th at 7:30 am. Clay Wilson (uncle of our own Chuck Daniel) will be our speaker for the day, sharing his experiences as a crew member on a B-17 bomber in the 8th Air Force during World War II.

Hear Clay tell his story of being among the first groups deployed to England in late 1942. On his 13th mission, while bombing submarine pens in southern France, his B-17 was shot down. Only three men survived by parachuting out of the damaged plan. For several months, Clay evaded Nazi soldiers with the assistance of the French Underground. After being moved over the Pyrennes into Spain, he was eventually arrested and imprisoned. After a short time, he was released and returned via Gibraltar.

Join us for Clay’s amazing story of courage and faith.

UPDATE

Clay was unfortunately not feeling weel that day, but we got to hear the story from his nephew, our own Chuck Daniel. You can see the video of Chuck’s, talk here:
