Kind Words from a Family in Mississippi
Wed., Dec. 4. 2013 11:04am EST
One of the most amazing things to us is when we send "thank you" notes to fans who give, and they turn around and send "thank you" notes to us. Take this example from a family in Mississippi:
I appreciate your gratitude but honestly, I am the one who is humbled by what you guys do.Mark's wife, Leigh-Ann, also sent this note:
Your ministry reaches crowds. You expose crowds to the Gospel. I'm humbled by that. Your message is genuine, proven by its Bible base and by the example you set by placing the message first. You are extremely generous in spreading the Gospel Message in quantity and quality as the Spirit has enabled you to do.
For several years now, your music/message has sufficed at times to help sustain my focus on a faith that has been through struggles. We all struggle at times, I'm sure, you have been there for me when times were dark.
Again, I'm blessed and humbled by the band's ministry. You reach many, something I can not at this time do directly. My ministry is to reach those around me in my place of work, and at church, through quiet witness and hopefully a righteous example as God wills. I enjoy the opportunity to share with those that are doing God's work on a larger scale.
Thank you for all that you and your families give. You all are such a blessing and are carrying such an important message. We feel so blessed by your gifts and talents.
Our two girls each came to us and asked if they could add to the gift (which we are so very happy to give). Melanie is almost 16 and never goes anywhere without her iPod (where your music lives for her). Our oldest daughter, Amanda, is 19. And our son, Jeff, came home from work last night and told us that he had the joy of sharing again also.
It is an amazing thing to watch our children ask to share their time, gifts, and talents with others. I'm so glad your ministry is so important to them. Without you there might be so many people who would never here the Word.
We wish you all the best. Continued courage during the hard economy is prayed for. We pray for you and yours often. You are a true blessing!
