Probably the best Program I have ever scheduled. Ron was so great with our Residents and shared so much information about his Biblesticks with us. I received many thanks and they told me how much they enjoyed him and his Program. Thank you

Were you ever a hit last Thursday evening!!!!! And I knew you would be. I have had so many calls asking questions and so many compliments on your program. Thank you so much for coming. You have just the right personality and delivery to make your creativity come to life. May God continue to bless you using your talents for create the Bible Sticks.

Your carvings were incredible! What a treat for all of us to see AND the sticks are such a learning tool. Your enthusiasm was contagious–the ladies really enjoyed your presentation.

Good Morning Ron, I just completed reading your book and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Your talent is like none I’ve ever seen before.  After reading and seeing all of the pictures of the different sticks, I agree with whoever told you to keep the collection together.  That collection IS museum quality and will one day hold an important place in a museum. Thank you so much for sharing – I just wanted you to know how much I LOVE your work and your talent. God Bless, Tammy

Your presentation was fantastic!  You are a natural story teller.  I received a lot of positive feedback about your presentation.  Everyone who attended agreed that those not present truly missed out.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

All of the club members raved about your presentation.  They said it was the best program they could ever remember having, also it was very informative.  In other words, you made quite a hit with the group.  Keep up the good work.  IT IS A GIFT FROM GOD.

Thank you so much for sharing some of your talents with us today. We were told we were in “for a treat” today. They were right! What a wonderful talent!

What talent! To think of how many lives you are touching plus using your special wonderful talent to the glory of God. Thank you ever so much for the great presentation and letting us handle your precious Bible Sticks. Everyone told me how much they enjoyed it.

What a job you did for us last Monday evening. Wow! Comments such as “Now that was really different” “How did you get so lucky” “Wish he could have had more time” and many more. Ron–it was great and we really appreciated your being with us. I have found myself talking about it in conversations as well. May God bless you in your work and your unique way of spreading the Word.

Thank you for a very interesting presentation. My wife and I were greeters Sunday and the people that attended our breakfast could not stop talking about your unique talents, you were a big hit.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Your name came up numerous times for several days after you entertained us with your beautiful wood carvings. It is just impossible for our group to believe such delicate work can be done. Thank you so much for spending time at Lakeside. We really enjoyed having you.

Thank you ever so much for the beautiful program on your hand carved “Bible Sticks”. The ladies and children are still talking about your presentation and work of art. The Lord has richly blessed you with a wonderful talent and gave you the ability to present and witness with your exquisite “Bible Sticks”.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Thank you for your informative and inspiring presentation this afternoon. So many of our club members expressed their appreciation for your unique ministry. You utilize your marvelous talents of art and mind in such splendid fashion. It seems to me that you reflect the Scripture of 1 Peter 4:11 (NASB). “Whoever speaks, let him speak, as it were, the utterances of God; whoever serves. let him do so as by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

Your presence at our Merrimate Meeting this past Monday was a blessing…to see how God gave you such a unique talent to use as a gift to others in presenting “The Good News” to all ages. It should stir within us the search of using our own God-given talents to reach out to others. God bless, protect, guide and send you to continually touch many with His word.

I have had many calls from our Seniors regarding your program for Monfort Heights United Methodist Church Senior Singles Group. We may receive comments on a program but not usually calls requesting your website and very complimentary comments. Your beautifully carved sticks telling about God and Jesus seem to summarize and bring the Bible to wood with amazing detail. It speaks to your knowledge and your relationship with our Lord. Thank you for sharing yourself and your sticks with us.

Thank you so very much for your wonderful program showing us your “Bible Sticks”.  There were many comments that this was one of the best programs we have had.       Joy Club, First Church of Christ

What a great program on Friday!  Your energy and enthusiasm brightens the room when you enter and remains brighter after you leave.  Your talent and dedication impressed everyone.  I have known several woodcarvers but none who produced detailed work like that!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Thank you for “carving” time out of your busy schedule to be here.  I hope you are able to “stick” with this ministry for years to come!
