Cindy Hof of Vandalia was the main speaker at last Thursday's National Day of Prayer breakfast at Crawford-Hale American Legion Home.
She told the story of her daughter's recovery from a serious illness, and how that has become an opportunity to praise God. "When we trust in God, he gives us opportunities to live for him – to shine," she said. The breakfast was the culmination of a week-long series of prayer events at various locations around Vandalia. The Vandalia Ministerial Alliance coordinated the activities.
