We got a very cool letter we wanted to share...

"I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what a blessing you were to my son and I today.  He was extremely excited to meet you at First Baptist this morning, after seeing you at [his] School.  You see, although [my son] is 14, he has several severe learning disabilities and is being evaluated for Asperger's Syndrome.  It is as if he is still mentally, socially, and emotionally 8-9 years old, even with a 139 IQ.  It is extremely difficult to get him to sit still and focus on anything, and he has never stayed awake during a church sermon.  He prefers to sit in the back of the church where no one sees him.  This morning, we sat in the front row, and he stayed awake the entire time you were speaking.  He has been looking forward to your show since we heard you were coming to town, and after seeing you Friday, he has not stopped talking about you.  I was a bit apprehensive about bringing him because he does not do well in large crowds.  Once again, he surprised me.  We sat on the floor up front and he stayed still without fidgeting, and was focused on your every move.  

I know throughout your ministry, you meet thousands of people.  I just wanted to let you know how deeply you touched one little boy- and how happy you made this Momma.  Thank you for the smiles, and may God continue to bless you."
