[Regarding “Being There,” by Jim Rice, March 2008], I met Brother Andrew when I was a recent “Jesus Freak” convert in 1971. I have seldom been impressed by a popular Christian author as I was by him. He was a normal person with a sense of humor. A few years later my wife and I sent him some money for his ministry. We were shocked when he sent back a personal note thanking us. He explained that our donation came on the same day he had met an Eastern Bloc couple who needed money. We have never experienced such a thing in our giving to well-known Christian figures.
