Features a filmed interview with Operation Baby Lift volunteer LeAnn Thieman



Questions about life’s purpose and divine intervention will be explored at 7 p.m. CT Monday, Feb. 19 at Lifetree Café.

The program—titled “Does God Have a Plan for You?”—features a filmed interview with Operation Baby Lift volunteer LeAnn Thieman. In the final days of the Vietnam War, Thieman and other volunteers extracted hundreds of at-risk babies from Vietnamese orphanages.

During the interview, Thieman explains she originally traveled to Vietnam to escort six orphans to the United States. Upon arrival, she learned she would have a very different mission.

“When I reached Saigon, I was greeted with the words ‘Have you heard the news? President Ford approved Operation Baby Lift. You’re going to help us take home 300 orphans,’” she said.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.
