Florida preacher tries to break speaking record

LEESBURG, Fla. (AP) — A central Florida preacher is trying to break a record for the longest speech.

The Leesburg Daily Commercial (http://bit.ly/1GBqxcf ) reported on Saturday that Zack Zehnder of the Cross Church in Mount Dora hopes to speak for more than 48-hours and 31 minutes to break the world record.

Zehnder is raising money for a new addiction recovery program during his speech. He plans to give an overview of the Bible and hopes to speak for 50 hours.

According to rules by the Guinness Book of World Records, Zehnder gets a five-minute break every hour.

He told the newspaper that the recording-breaking speech attempt is a creative way to spread God’s world.
