Wow! It was amazing. I cannot tell you how extraordinary these gentlemen are. It is truly an unbelievable story. I wish you all could have been there to meet Ron Hall and Denver Moore and hear them talk about their journey to this point. They have been guest speakers in places around the United States, and today had 3 one-hour radio interviews ... so to have them right here in Grapevine in a gymnasium with a few hundred people present is almost unthinkable.

Next Tuesday they will be in Washington, D.C. at the White House to receive an award for their contribution surrounding advancing literacy in the United States.
As promised, Denver Moore is truly "carrying the torch that Miss Debbie lit" to continue sharing God's word to all he comes in contact with. He even sang a song at the end ... it was so moving.
I am looking forward to tomorrow night, as I hope you all are, to our first book club meeting!
See you there!

Hey, here's an idea for a future book - and it's a movie.
