A blind pastor at the First Baptist Church of Iola laces his prayers with copious sections of Scripture. He said visitors were sometimes initially quite impressed by his pastoral prayers and his apparent memorization of Scripture. "They see me with my eyes closed just quoting entire passages and they think I am working from memory," he said with a smile. This was one of two pictures to illustrate a story on the pastor and the unique challenges he faced.
