“I like both the Old Time Gospel and Christmas Celebration DVD’s containing the traditional Christian hymns you sent. I feel they would be a good resource for activity directors to use for Christian activities with their senior residents. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to buy them to give them away in our Resource Packs which are distributed to senior’s facilities throughout America.” *Resource packs consist of devotional materials such as bibles, videos, hymns, etc. to provide the spiritual needs of seniors.

“Can more DVD’s still be purchased? Our residents just love John, his are the most popular musical DVDs that we have. I have had a request to try to get a visit with him. I had the pleasure of meeting John at an APO convention and I bought all of his DVD’s. Has he released new ones?”
