"Your performance impacted myself, personally, very deeply. From the moment he walked in singing, to the time he was struggling to breathe on the cross, I was at the edge of my seat and filled with joy. My entire family was present with me - husband & three boys, ages 4, 8, & 12. I know that the play impacted them as well. I trust the Lord has planted seeds into their hearts with your performance that will last a lifetime. May God continue to bless you all, your work, your ministry and all whom you touch!"

With such flowing diction and descriptive gestures, it all goes by too quickly - it is actually encouraging us to spend more time in contemplation, to savor each word and phrase."
