That is just what Bill Leach did for his audience three nights last weekend april 8, 9, and 10. He could have been a millionaire if he had desired to do so. However he chose his own unique ministry Over selfish themes. Leach had a terrific Talent in Chalk drawings and instead of merely converting that god Given ability into personal profit he uses it to spread the Good of the gospel through the auspices of the Fellowship of Christian athletes. When one person has such an abundance of Talent then you be got to believe it is god Given. The realism of his drawings were simply astounding. His first program entitled see it like it is seemed to be the most True to life of his three presentations. The second drawing that night created a nature setting with Mountain peaks in the background a Lake front and a campfire in the foreground. With special lighting and sound effects he turned Day into night lit the campfire persuaded the Moon and stars to Shine radiantly then brought the wind up extinguished the fire made rain fall lightning Flash and Thunder Cascade through the scene. When the thunderstorm let up Dawn came Complete with the sound of Birds Brush insects and two persons fishing in a Canoe at Sunrise. It May not have been the real thing but it certainly was the next Best thing and it was spectacular. The second night the visited planet featured an Ultra Violet drawing of the Moon s surface with Earth in the background. The longer you looked at it the More realistic it got. Leach suggested the return trip to Earth was similar to the one which sent Jesus Christ there to do his missionary work Twenty centuries ago. Most appropriate of the three presentations was the crucifixion and resurrection which took place on the night of easter sunday. The local Fca and the sponsors timing could t have been better for arranging the three night series at this time of the year. When it was All Over Bill Leach made you realize god s All encompassing Power the Beauty of his creation and the gifts of sight and sound. Whether you go to Monument Valley or the Moon it All starts with the Cross. As Leach said the Fca is not a substitute for the Church but merely an Extension of it. Each night the proceedings were opened and closed with prayer while such individuals As Darren Rensink Donna Van Regenmorter Dan Den Herder Bill Estes Ken Bahrke and Dave Mulder All spoke on the meaning of the Fca s significance and others provided special music. The Sioux Center huddle was organized in 1968 with eight members and is one of thousands throughout the country. The Fellowship of Christian athletes is strictly a Volunteer organization a movement of Faith and action. It strives constantly to strengthen the moral and spiritual life of the athletes and coaches of America. The local huddle contains 84 members and eight adult leaders Mulder Bahrke Estes Jan Loux Dale Vander Wilt Randy Olson Harold Kaemingk and Rick Collins. The recent three night program Art in action was sponsored by 73 Sioux Center business establishments and it was three nights Well spent. By Dennis Durband guest editorial life is truly a song Ivi i m-3fi i de. Note the following excerpts come from a speech delivered by general Joseph May the adjutant general of the Iowa army National guard. In the april 2, 1977 speech the general talks about friendships and what they mean today. Although Given before 1,200 officers of the guard his words hold meaning for our world and our times in All seriousness a moment ago when i was introduced As Joey i was thinking about life life is truly As song and As friends we should sing it together. Yes life goes from Jesus loves me to How great thou Art from schooldays schooldays to because and from the kid next door to Hail to the chief. Songs Are something special to All of us because it allows us at times to say things through song that we would not normally say or Are to bashful or embarrassed to say in real life. Many of us in the guard family experienced peeks and valleys this past year and i am reminded of the song that goes when you go through a storm keep your head up High and Don t be afraid of the dark. And to you Lovely people who cared and helped i think of the song people people who need people Are the Luckiest people in the world. My most sincere gratitude is Best expressed by merely saying thanks thanks for the i look around this ballroom among the 1200 officers and ladies gathered Here this evening i see Many familiar faces this is indeed a wonderful occasion. This event has always been a special one because it has been my privilege to know so Many of you in the performance of my duties not Only As adjutant general but As fellow officers and friends in the past times and places. The sons far away places and far away things tells this Story quite Well. Many of you tonight Are renewing acquaintances that go Back Many years yes we have All developed Many friends within our guard family. And of course we have met the officers and their ladies today that add freshness and zest to our program As Bing Crosby so aptly put it in song that s what life is All to you members in our family Many i say Welcome to my world. You will quickly find out that not Only is the Iowa National guard one big family but also it is a very Strong fraternity. We Are Here this evening for the express purpose of honouring those officers and their Lovely ladies who retired from our ranks with More than 20 years of service to our state and nation during 1976. There will be a great void in our ranks. It should be of great satisfaction to you to know How very much we miss you and your services. It is our Fervant Hope that you continue your interest in our affairs and that you will Honor us with your presence from time to time. There is an old song so old that i have even forgotten who wrote it and even the tune but it tells the Story Well it is entitled friends forever and it says friends come friends go the loves men know Are Ever fleeting in song and smile a Little while we read their kindly greeting with warmth and cheer they linger near the friends we fondly treasure then on a Day they Drift away a loss no words can measure i this much i know friends come Friend go As april s gladness passes As Sun and Shade in Swift Parade paint changes on Meadow grasses and though we Grieve to see them leave in thought we still enfold them in memory s net we keep them yet and thus can Ever hold them they come they go these loves we know. 32-3rd Street n.w., Sioux Center Iowa s1250 Telephone 722-0741.
