Mr. Boyd, My congrats to you on an amazing book. All I can say is that it's been a wonderful read. I was not able to put the manuscript down and finished it in a day. Your life and the life of the others in whom you spoke about touched me deeply. It is my sincere prayer that God will continue to use you for His mighty work. God bless!!!
