About the Breakfast
The South Dakota Governors Prayer Breakfast will be held beginning at 6:20am on Friday, January 19, 2018 at the Pierre Ramkota. The breakfast will conclude by 7:45am.
The Prayer Breakfast is an interdenominational event centered on Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world and is intended to promote His glory. The breakfast is loosely modeled after the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC. People of all faiths and professions are welcome to attend.
The speaker for the breakfast will be Virginia Prodan from Dallas, Texas. As a young attorney under Nicolae Ceausescu’s brutal communist regime in Romania, Virginia had spent her entire life searching for the truth. When she finally found it in the pages of the most forbidden book in all of Romania, Virginia accepted the divine call to defend fellow followers of Christ against unjust persecution in an otherwise ungodly land.
Come and hear her amazing testimony!
Virginia had literally faced her assassin and has lived to tell about it. You will be inspired by her confidence and courage in the Lord; by her desire to share God’s love with anyone. She shared it with the man who was hired to kill her. She is passionate about mentoring others who want to stand up to their giants and create a courageous, purpose-filled, and abundant life.
As a young attorney under Nicolae Ceausescu’s brutal communist regime, Virginia had spent her entire life searching for the truth. When she finally found it in the pages of the most forbidden book in all of Romania, Virginia accepted the divine call to defend fellow followers of Christ against unjust persecution in an otherwise ungodly land.
For this act of treason, she was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, placed under house arrest, and came within seconds of being executed under the orders of Ceausescu himself. How Virginia not only managed to defeat her enemies time and again, but helped expose the appalling secret that would lead to the demise of Ceausescu’s evil empire is one of the most extraordinary stories ever told.
Virginia Prodan’s compelling story of courage in the face of intimidation and even death on behalf of others is a testament to her unwavering faith in a God who delivers.
