Jennifer Korn, special assistant to the President, organized the meeting, but the prayer time was an unexpected bonus, Johnnie Moore said. “When the West Wing became aware that we were on the property, they invited us over to spend a few minutes,” he said.
He described the president as “in wonderful spirits” as did Tony Suarez, executive vice president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.
