Our 2017 National Day of Prayer Breakfast will be Thursday, May 18 at 8:00 a.m. This year's speaker is ABC 33/40 television anchor Brenda Ladun.

Brenda is well-known in the state, is an exceptional speaker, and as a cancer survivor she has written three very inspiring books rooted in her deep Christian faith.  She is very positive about reliance on faith in overcoming adversity and her message is uplifting and hopeful, drawing on her personal experiences and those whose stories she has covered as part of her ongoing television news series “Matters of Faith.”

"I want to speak about hope for our future, not just in Alabama but in our Nation, and not giving up when times are tough. The tough times don't last, especially with faith, hope and prayer. I had cancer in my body, but there are other cancers that show up in our communities -- crime, unforgiveness -- and what can we do about it? We can pray, and we can use our hands and feet to fight these cancers."

You may order tickets by calling Jodie Wasyluka at (205) 665-3535 x 1045, or emailing jwasyluka@americanvillage.org. Tickets are $20 per person, and include a hot buffet breakfast.
