Jeff came to our school to do two presentations. In the morning, he spoke with the Fellowship of Christian Students (FCS) and then in the afternoon he did an assembly for the general student population. Jeff was able to connect with and challenge the students in both settings. He shared his powerful testimony of God’s faithfulness, love and transforming power with the FCS students. In the afternoon he shared a motivational message with students and invited them to visit his Web site with further questions. He sparked the interest of the students as they heard from Jeff about how his life was changed for the better through his accident. His visit has opened many doors for discussion and his story has touched many lives. God has given Jeff the ability to speak to and reach people from many different backgrounds.

I was at your presentation at St. Albert this week. I really enjoyed hearing you speak. I am a 4th grade teacher there. When I was first told of the presentation, I only was given the basic information about you. I was really unsure if my young students would get much out of it. You had their attention from the start and it remained that way throughout. I was thrilled afterwards when the students were reflecting on what you said. After hearing you talk about your struggles after the accident and how alcohol wasn't an escape one student made the comment that hearing that from you meant so much more to him than having one of his teachers stand up and say "don't drink." You really showed the kids there are no limitations on life. I guess what I'm trying to say in this message is thank you for what you do. You really do make a difference. God Bless.

You are seriously an amazing person. That was the first thing I thought about you when you came to my school. Then, I was at the community center when you spoke there. It was a life-changing experience. After I accepted Jesus and walked out of there, it felt like a weight had been lifted off my chest. And, since Wednesday night, my stomach has had butterflies in it. You are just an awesome person, and I really don't know how to say thank you to you and mean it the same way your words and everything else meant to me. I just really want to thank you for helping me change my life. You are an amazing, life-changing person. Thank you so much.

Thank you for coming to Conestoga Valley High School today to speak with us about your story. I was extremely grateful for your willingness to speak at FCS. Your message is so simple but can truly reach deep inside someone like me. Thank you again for coming, and I want you to know your visit has helped me. I was never really far from God but I have wanted to get closer, and you helped me do that today. Thanks again.

I just wanted to say thank you for visiting our school (Treynor). You helped me out a lot after your talk at the community center, because, to be honest with you, I was an atheist. I didn't believe in God and that night when I went home, I prayed to Him to forgive me for being a non-believer! Your life story has changed me more then ever!!!! THANK YOU!!

I wanted to let you know that since last week, I have really been watching what I have been doing, and it's beginning to work! You really helped save my life. I thank God that He saved your life that day so you could help save mine and I’m sure other peoples’ lives too. Thank you so, so, so, so, so much!!
