Community prays for Baby Brooks at Candlelight Vigil
By ZELDA BETH LANG
A large group of Dalhart residents gathered in the 7th Street Park on Saturday night, July 19, for a Candlelight Service for Baby Brooks, the baby found alive in a dumpster last Saturday night, July 12.
Robert Ledbetter with Hillside Christian Church opened the ceremony. He said we are here pleading for this child, praying for us to focus on the child. All present were given a candle and as darkness began the candles made a wonderful glow. Adults, parents and children were all holding a candle.
Associate Pastor of the first Baptist Church, Brian Walton said “God has a plan for this young man.” The group joined in a silent prayer followed by a solo on a guitar and a song sung by Zach Dietz, worship and youth pastor at the newLife Church.
