Record Attendance for 9th Annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast
NORFOLK - The 9th Annual Greater Norfolk Mayor's Leadership Prayer Breakfast included record-breaking attendance figures. Over the last eight years, individuals and business leaders of Norfolk and the surrounding areas have gathered during the week of Easter to pray and ask for blessings on the community. This year's event drew in well over 700 people. Mayor Sue Fucthman said the emotional feeling in the room this morning was unexplainable. Renowned author Josh McDowell gave the keynote address who spoke of his experience growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father, being sexually abused and how he reluctantly found his faith.
