Revival Crusade to feature inspirational guest speaker, praise and worship

BAKER — The Revival Crusade will feature a guest speaker and three gospel groups.

The revival is 6 p.m. Oct. 8 and 6:45 p.m. Oct. 9-11 at Camp Okaloosa, 7704 Creston Barrow Road, Baker. Follow the signs from U.S. Highway 2.

"David Ring will be sharing a truly inspirational message of faith. He is a man who has overcome unbelievable obstacles to find 'something worth living for,'" event organizers stated in a media release.

Born in 1953, Ring developed cerebral palsy due to 18 minutes of oxygen deprivation at birth.

Orphaned at the age of 14 after both parents died of cancer, he moved from family to family with nowhere to call home. He endured physical pain, public ridicule and discouragement.

After surrendering his heart and life to Jesus Christ, he learned self-respect and acceptance of his physical challenges, according to a media release.

Fresh Anointing, The Staffords and Crow's Nest will provide music at the services, which will also include congregational praise and worship.
