Thanks to you, LordSong and Stan for coming to be with us in
Minnesota. Five years was well worth the wait! I was very happy to
see how the folks here got the message and responded.
As I said in my blog, "The man can SING!" Say The Name
at the close was amazing and I hope you record it!
It was also a joy to meet even more of this reMarkable community
you've helped create.
Blessings to you, my dear.

I was at your concert in Fargo, ND, and really enjoyed it. My son
even thanked me for bringing him. (He is the boy you shook hands with
as you walked down the aisle. You really made his day!)
I asked you about Say The Name.
That song really touched my heart. There were many times when I was growing
up that my Grandmother used to bow her head and say His name over and over
again. As a kid, I thought it was silly because, if she was praying, she
should be talking to Him, not just saying His name. After hearing you sing
that song, it hit me: When you pray and don't know what to say, just

Your concerts in Waterloo, Des Moines, Fargo and Bloomington
were fantastic! It amazes me how you're able to make each concert unique -
even four nights in a row! You, LordSong and Stan bring so much to
the experience... beautiful and powerful singing, an honest message of
hope and love, as well as healing laughter.
God did show up and it was wonderful to experience His presence in that
way. A big thank you to each of you for being so gracious each night.

Thank you so much for the Waterloo concert!
My family says I was born with ADHD (and, if you knew me, you
would agree) but they were never willing to take me to a doctor
because they didn't want everyone to know that their daughter was 'strange'.
We lived in a small Iowa town and news traveled VERY quickly.
I would just like to thank you for making it okay to have ADHD. And,
thank you for all that you do! God is working through you and doing great
things. I know that my life has been changed.
We were so blessed to see you in Springfield, MO; thoughts of your show
continue to pop up. This was my first time seeing your show in person and
I was just amazed at your message. It was something I hadn't seen watching
you on the Gaither shows.
Thank you for taking the time to meet me. Now I am so thrilled that my
relatives in Fargo, ND, and Minneapolis, MN, are also able to see your show.
I know they will be as blessed as I am.
God bless you!

I am still blown away with your fantastic concert in Louisville,
KY. I've wanted to see you in person for a long time and my
dreams came true with a neighbor-friend of mine who enjoyed
the concert as much as I did.
you were getting ready to sing Mary, Did You Know?,
I almost couldn't stay in my seat. That is one of the most
beautiful songs I have ever heard. It always touches me so
much and makes chills go all over me.
purchased tickets for your March show and still had them.
When I received the call that you were coming to Louisville,
I was walking on clouds. I called my Mother in Mississippi
(where I'm originally from) to tell her the news. I also called
her as soon as I got home from your concert and told her everything
I could remember. We were on the phone for quite awhile as
you can imagine.
are truly God's instrument because I was blessed more than
I can say. I look at you and listen to God's words through
you and I know there is hope for me.
May God keep His hands on you always and bless you every moment.
Louisville was the best. I know you think I always say that
but it's true. Ya'll never cease to amaze me.
was so glad to finally hear you sing Carry Me in
concert but I never dreamed it would be so moving. And, then,
to follow it with Isn't it Amazing?; how can one
not feel His presence?
brought my mom and a couple of friends. Normally when the
concert is over and we are driving home, we talk about the
concert and the things you said. This time, no one said anything
for the first half hour. I finally broke the silence and asked
my mom what she was thinking about. She said she just couldn't
stop thinking about the second half of the show.
said the music was right on and that Amber's husband needs
to be commended for the job he did with the sound.
was all just so moving. An absolutely unbelievable night.
You're the best!
Respectfully and sincerely,
I was so blessed to see you again at High Street Church in
Springfield, MO. I was not supposed to go (doctor's orders)
but nothing could keep me away. As always, you were great
and, when you sang Make It Real, I cried. I know
that song was meant for me and all the illness I am going
My grandson was so happy to get your book with your autograph
to him. I know everyone in his class at school will get to
see this wonderful gift.
stay well and no more motor bikes for you... and no more haircuts
either. Take care and may God keep blessing you with good
health and much happiness.
Love in Christ,
Eight of us from the Dallas area just returned from your Missouri
concert at High Street Baptist Church. The eight hours on
the road to get there were well worth it.
a blessing to see you WALK onto that stage without even a
slight limp! We saw you on that 'red buggy' in April and knew
how you wanted to get off and move around. Well, you can surely
move around now! Praise God for answering prayer!
all just love it when Stan sings the bass part. He is a multi-talented
guy. LordSong's Day Three sent chills all over us
but, most of all, we always look forward to hearing Mary,
Did You Know?
motorcycle accident has certainly given you some new and marvelous
stories to tell. What a blessing to our thirsty souls you
are! In fact, we like your preaching and your stories almost
as well as your singing. (Almost...)
Thank you for taking the time to visit with all of us after
the concert. You were no doubt very tired and eager to rest
but you put on that sweet smile and greeted us all!
eagerly await your next concert in the Texas area!
Kindest personal regards,
daughter and I attended your concert on Friday, September
29 in Springfield, MO. It was the first time we'd seen you
in concert. I've seen you several times with the Gaithers
and I've enjoyed the message that all of you put across to
daughter has ADHD and she can relate to your concert and videos.
She understands now that there are other people out there
who are just like her. She
was so excited to meet you after the show even though you
were so tired. Thank you for all you do for us 'standard'
I arrived at the church that evening, I was so down but, hearing
the things you said on stage really boosted my spirits. I
felt your message that evening was meant for me. Isn't God
great? If it wasn't for God, I would be so totally lost in
this world. When I started going to the Gaither concerts with
my family and going to other Christian concerts, I felt like
God had finally shown me where He wants me to be in my life.
bless you and your family.

I bought tickets in advance to see you in concert in Springfield,
MO, on 09/29. When the day of the concert came, I didn't want
to attend at all. The last thing I wanted to hear that night
was that God was crazy about me.
Wednesday of that week, my dad had a test that will let us
know if a spot on his lung is malignant or not. Needless to
say, it had been a rough few days and I just wasn't up to
a Christian concert.
expressed my feelings to my husband but he was looking forward
to attending, so we went. I normally attend a Christian function
with great enthusiasm, only to face feelings of wanting to
flee before the thing is over. Your concert was different
for me, Mark. I didn't feel like attending but, instead of
wanting to leave before it was over, I was shocked that the
night went so quickly and that, all too soon, it was over.
laughed hysterically with you and I found myself thinking
profoundly for the first time in a long time over the things
you said about serving God and - yes, even about the fact
that God is crazy about me. Turns out that the thing
I didn't want to hear at all was what I needed to hear the
been to a number of Christian functions where everyone keeps
saying how they feel the presence of God during the program
and I sit there and wonder what's wrong with me because I
didn't feel His presence. Then, you started talking about
how you didn't feel anything in particular at a previous concert
but, that night in Springfield, I felt Him there.
still haven't heard how Dad's test came out. And, while I'm
still worried (some things never change), it felt good to
laugh for a night. I'm still struggling with a lot of issues
but for a brief moment in time, they all disappeared.
thank you, Mark. Thank you for being the conduit you spoke
about. Thank you for making us laugh and thank you for setting
our eyes toward the Creator instead of His creation.
the way, I'm pretty sure that God is crazy about you, too!
God bless and keep smiling!
