Sensational Story from South Africa

Last month, we shared a great email from a fan in South Africa. Here's an encouraging email excerpt from another fan there:
I am an old fan from South Africa but have not been in touch for quite a while now. Your music inspired me tremendously when I was still "in the miry clay" and the impact it is has had on me I have seen it have on others that I know and have shared it with. Many others.
Over the years I have bought your CDs from local shops and even a few directly from your site yet my collection is always small, as I cannot but help give them to those in need.
In fact, at a conference of apostolic church leaders from around the world held here in South Africa I played your Biblical Graffitti CD at one of the meetings and the entire group, some well into their 60's, were dancing like little children. "Truly I say to you, except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."
These grown men, church leaders every one of them, became as children again and I wept at the sight. I still do. It was one of the most memorable days of my life and I strongly desire to be a part of the creative force that can do that to people. I have unsaved friends who have given back my CDs telling me that they have listened to them so much they have forgotten the original lyrics.
I caught myself the other day in a shop singing your lyrics to the music playing over their speakers, to the amusement of other shoppers as I cannot really sing. They got the message though.
Bottom line, I love your talents and would love to help you continue your mission. All I can do at the moment is give you what is in my heart, and my prayers. You have them both, and all I want in return is for you guys to keep on keeping on.
With respect and admiration,
