The Miracle Worker, a play by William Gibson, is as much Annie Sullivan's story as it is Helen Keller's. Annie's belief that Helen Keller could and would learn language through the means of sign language is a remarkable story of courage and perseverance. Presented by the Ozark Adventist Academy Drama class, The Miracle Worker will be performed at 7 p.m. on Feb. 2 in the OAA Auditorium. Tickets are $5 and are available at the door. This will include a Bake Sale. If you like to donate baked goods for a fund raiser for the OAA Drama class, it would appreciated.  Bring your baked goods to the church office on Friday morning, Feb. 1, or when you come to church on Sabbath, Feb. 2. Please contact Dona Young (479-957-4739) for any questions, or if you need her to pick up your items.
