Dave Roever to speak at The Island Church Nov. 28
The congregation at Christian Life the Island Church invites the entire Alabama Gulf Coast community to hear war hero Dave Roever on Sunday, November 28 during all three of its Sunday services (8:15 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.). The church is located at 25550 Canal Rd. in Orange Beach (251-967-4840) and there is no charge to attend.
At the height of the Vietnam War, Roever joined the U. S. Navy and served as a river boat gunner in the elite Brown Water Black Beret. He suffered a devastating injury when a phosphorous grenade exploded in his hand, burning him beyond recognition. He has had 55 surgeries in the past 49 years. In one of his first surgeries, phosphorous still smoldering inside him ignited as he lay on the operating table. His survival and ensuing life with his faithful late wife at his side are miraculous. A superb multi-generational speaker, Roever travels the globe, sharing his gripping testimony with engaging humor, imparting hope in the face of insurmountable obstacles.
