MARS Welcomes Charl van Wyk
What would you do if you were sitting in church some Sunday morning and a group of thugs entered the church and opened fire using semi-automatic weapons and hand grenades?
On July 25, 1993 just such an event happened in Cape Town, South Africa. This tragic event has become known as the Saint James Church Massacre. Fortunately, one man in the congregation was armed. His name is Charl van Wyk.
Van Wyk returned fire with his .38 Special (not exactly the preferred weapon for such an event) wounding one of the attackers and no doubt saved many lives in the process. This is an excellent example of how one armed citizen can make the difference between life and death!
Find out what happened when van Wyk payed a visit to one of his attackers while in prison!
We are pleased to have Mr. van Wyk present at our April, 21st lecture!
Dinner 6:00, from full menu (great food!)
