Vigil Set for Iraq Elections

Dekalb Baptist Church has organized a prayer vigil for U.S. troops delivering voting machines in Iraq and for the people of that country who will vote in democratic elections this weekend.

The vigil will be Saturday from 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. at the Kemper County courthouse.

Because of the time difference, the prayers will be offered at times when violence could escalate in Iraq.

The public is invited.
