2014 YMCA Good Friday Breakfast

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

Out of Ashes

Friday, April 18, 2014

The YMCA of Greater Indianapolis is inviting the community to its 46th Annual Good Friday Breakfast. Each year this event brings more than 800 local community leaders, churches and residents together for an inspirational morning of praise and fellowship.

This year’s featured guest speaker is Sujo John. Sujo moved from India seeking adventure and prosperity in the United States just six months before the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. He worked on the 81st floor of the North Tower, while his then-pregnant wife, Mary, worked on the 71st floor of the South Tower.

By the grace of God, John and Mary survived the horrific events of September 11, 2001. Media from all over the world have taken interest in their story. The tragedy served to launch his international evangelistic ministry.
