Depew Church Conduct Special Talks FENTON -Thepublic is invited to attend a series of talks at St. John's Lutheran Church, Cylinder, Iowa (Depew) next week. The speaker will be Rev. Allen V. Lee, and he will speak at the morning worship service at 10:30 Sunday, March 14, and then each evening at 7:30, Sunday through Wednesday, March 17. There will also be a special youth meeting for all Leaguers each evening at 6:00. A native of Stewartville, Minnesota, Pastor Lee is a graduate of Luther College, Decorah.Iowa and Luther Theological Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. Lee, 56, known as "the wheelchair evangelist" was stricken with polio in 1938, while a senior at Luther Seminary. For the past 18 years he has been an evangelist preaching from his wheelchair. Pastor Lee received treatment for his illness at hospitals in Rochester and Minneapolis, and also at Warm Springs, Georgia. He was treated by the late Sister Elizabeth Kenny in Minneapolis, too, and now has partial use of both arms, though his trunk and legs remain paralyzed. As an ELC evangelist, Lee has traveled extensively throughout the United States, driving an auto with hand controls. His wheelchair sermons emphasize faith to bring victory over physical limitations, and he is popular with children and young people. On May 3, 1959, he was ordained into the ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, the first in a wheelchair to receive such action. On January 1, 1961, he was installed as one of the preaching evangelists in the American Lutheran Church. Lee and his family make their home on a farm near Hayfield, Minnesota, where they raise purebred sheep. He and his wife, Helen, were both raised on farms and they believe that it is a good place for their son and daughter. Each of them have sheep for their 4-H projects. The story of Lee's struggle with polio has been featured in a book, "My Soul More Bent" by Melva Rorem.
