Dear Ward,

It is with deep appreciation and gratitude that I send you this email. Thank you for being willing to speak at our National Conference in Denver this past week, I know that your words and ministry profoundly blessed our staff and myself, as well. I pray that the Lord will continue to anoint your ministry, the work of your hands, and the people with whom you come in contact.

May the Holy Spirit continue to work in and through you.

For the Kingdom,

I just spent some time listening and interacting with Ward Tanneberg.
My spirit was touched in a way it either has never or rarely been touched. It is difficult for me to explain. When I came home I tried to describe to my wife who Ward is and what happened not only to me, but to all who were there. I could not. I just said that we were touched, moved, and blessed in a different way . . . somewhere between a rare and a unique way.
If you have the opportunity to be with Ward, I would strongly suggest you take advantage of it. You will not leave as the same person. God blessed us through this man. And God blessed this man through us.

I wanted to say ‘Thank you’ for giving of yourself to be with us a few weeks ago. The best way I can describe what you did for us is that you brought the Presence of the Lord as you stood before us. You were such a blessing to me. I know it isn’t easy sharing some of the things you shared, but you brought a powerful message by just being among us. You also really helped me think about important things and getting things in line with His purposes for the future. Thank you!
I would like to get on your Blog list to receive your various writings in whatever format that comes.
May God bless you mightily in this next phase of life and ministry that He gives you,

I heard you on the radio today…your message affect me…I think the Lord is saying…don’t get lost in your pain…never, never, never give up. I needed that.

I guess we will always remember the phrase, “It’s all right to get older, just not all right to get old.” Thanks again for your teaching at the C&MA Retreat in Bozeman.

It was a pleasure to have you speak at our spiritual retreats in Cincinnati, New Orleans, and Phoenix. I was particularly impressed with your Seasons of the Spirit message. It was very much in keeping with the spirit we are trying to build within Volunteers of America. You definitely have another “trophy to display.”

Thank you for the wonderful Southwest Community Church retreat. It was inspiring, convicting, and fun at the same time.

What a wonderful thing to have a “special” speaker that told us how special God is, not how special the speaker is. You ministered the truth…in a way that challenged and encouraged.

Your lecture was one of the most helpful I have heard on the type of characters needed in a book and how to create them.
