Elgin’s FCA invites community to Libby Malek’s motivational speech

ELGIN, OK (KSWO)- Elgin's Fellowship of Christian Athletes Chapter will host a very special guest tomorrow evening and they want you to come out.

Libby Malek is the widow of Jace Malek. Jace was a football player who found out he had cancer the week before he was signing a letter of intent to the University of Idaho. Jace lost the battle in February of 2016.

Now that Jace is gone, Libby travels around spreading the word of God and what He did in their lives.

Jon Hughes, the leader of Elgin's FCA, says he hopes the students learn to spread the gospel without fear of being embarrassed.

"It makes you realize there are no excuses. If that's the message we can get across to the kid-- that they'll just have a strength… They can step up no matter what they face. If they start spreading the gospel, it was worth it."

The event begins tomorrow evening at 6:00 p.m. at the Elgin High School Gym.
It'll start with some music put on by the students followed by a 30-minute film about Jace's life. After the film, Libby will take the stage.

The event is completely free and everybody is invited.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.

    The documents have been at the center of a political firestorm for months, as some Republicans have suggested that the FBI misrepresented evidence to obtain warrants to monitor Carter Page as they investigated possible collusion between the Russian government and a Trump aide.
