Day of Prayer and Support for Holloway Family is Today

JUNE 23, 2005 - Posted at 7:22 a.m. CDT

 

JONESBORO, AR - Friends and co-workers of the northeast Arkansas-based relatives of missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway will host a prayer walk and related events today at Hurricane Gym on the Jonesboro High School campus.

Natalee Holloway, 19, has been missing in the Caribbean for several weeks.  Her father is originally from Bono, and she has several family members in the Jonesboro and Bono area.  Some of those relatives are currently in Aruba assisting in the search for the girl. 

Hurricane Gym will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. today.  Those wishing to show their support for the family can participate in a prayer walk and light candles.  Visitors may also leave prayers and blessings for the Holloway family in a "Blessing Basket."

Sponsors of the event are also asking local residents to show their support for the Holloways by tieing white ribbons to their vehicles.
