I was very surprised, upon reading the letter below, to learn how young its writer is. When you see how well it is written and how mature Quincy seems, I think you’ll be surprised as well. I was not surprised, however, to learn that Quincy’s parents are Harvest Partners, just like you are. Harvest Partners understand the importance of the gospel, and that conviction is sure to influence not only your giving, but the way you live your life, view the world, and raise your kids as well:
Dear Mr. Laurie,
We are so blessed to have you. I have listened to your radio broadcasts and read your e-mail devotionals for nearly two years now. I think you are a great role model, and I am happy and proud to say that my life as a Christian has been greatly accelerated by you.
Your radio broadcasts are amazing. I am nearly a teen, and one of my favorite messages is the one about temptation for teens. Your advice has made me a much better, more prosperous Christian, and I pray for you and your ministry all the time. I have given the address for your broadcasts to a few of my relatives, and I am in the process of getting the gospel through to my best friends’ stubborn minds. I am positive that your broadcast will help me to convince them.
Opening your e-mail devotional is like opening a small package that I am always surprised and overjoyed to receive. It feels like the message is always catered to just how I am feeling that day, and it always opens my eyes to the reality of God and His love for us. I love storytelling and writing, and each story that accompanies the lesson in your devotional helps give me inspiration for everything I write.
This letter will hopefully inspire you and give you the love and joy that we all need to survive and succeed as Christians. Living the Christian life is hard, but you have made it about a million times easier for me, and I hope you will continue to spread that special something all over the world.
I have read nearly every one of your books with increasing joy. I am currently working on the Start! Bible. I am surprised and excited to learn that another one of your books is out, entitled Hope. My parents are fervent Harvest Partners.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. It means a lot to me.
Thank you for your partnership with Harvest Ministries. Your support brings teaching and encouragement to people all over the world, including young people like Quincy.
