From the Bakersfield Californian:

More than 1,000 people woke up last week to attend the 38th Annual Bakersfield Prayer Breakfast at the Rabobank Convention Center.

Community members, including Bakersfield City Council member Andre Gonzalez, Cynthia Zimmer of the District Attorney’s Office and Stockdale High senior Michael Del Mundo, were just a few who led prayers for leaders in government, public safety, health and human services, private enterprise, charities, religion and youth and education. Keynote speaker Michael Yankoski, a writer and theologian, spoke on what it looks like to live a life of faith.

Michael Del Mundo, a senior at Stockdale High school and member of The Ford Dimension student leadership program, talked about faith, hope and love, “with love being the greatest of all.” 

“Let this hope for a better world reach across political, cultural or religious barriers,” Del Mundo said. “Allow our love to positively impact every person we meet, regardless of beliefs or values.”

Del Mundo continued: “Let us be good Samaritans who choose to aid the suffering man when everyone chooses to show indifference.”
