"This letter is a letter of recommendation for the ministry of Herb and Crystal Taylor. Joanne and I have been blessed to have been involved in their ministry and have them stay in our home on more that one occasion. Our church recently was blessed by Crystal's singing, as well as by Herb's preaching. We know that these two people have the Pastor, as well as the Church at heart when they come to your area. May you be as blessed as we here at Nashville Cowboy Church have been."

Just a short note about Herb and Crystals time with us. Herb and Crystal have done 4 FGBMF events with us. Their anointed ministry has truly been a blessing. An outreach meeting we had them minster at stands out... a full house anointed singing and speaking, and an altar call. Approximately 35 salvations that evening with proven life-changing results, to God be the glory. You will not be disappointed in having them.

"To Whom It May Concern: Within recent months our Church was blessed with the ministry of Crystal Clear Ministries. Herb & Crystal Taylor and their son Zach travel throughout Canada and United States in itinerant Ministry.

"It is a pleasure to write this testimonial letter for "Crystal Clear Ministries". Crystal is blessed with a very committed husband and two fine sons. The family is developing a very worth while ministry. After hearing one particular song sung by Crystal, I came to the conclusion that as famous gospel singers used to say, "If that don't light your fire, your woods wet!"

"We were fortunate to be able to host this group of people in our store for several days, to sing and sell their music. The atmosphere that was created was fantastic, our customers thoroughly enjoyed their shopping experience and we received numerous calls and letters from our customers, many asking when they would be able to return. As a result I would recommend that they would be welcome to return to our store to serve our customers again."

As a result, they have built up a growing reputation amongst the Christian community across Canada. They have a sincere heart for evangelism through music ministry.

"This letter is to introduce and recommend to you Mrs. Crystal Taylor. Crystal was a member of our church, with her husband Herb, for a number of years and was involved in a wide range of ministries with music being the most prevalent. Crystal is a lady who loves the Lord and desires that through songs that she sings and writes her Lord would receive the glory. Her style is Country western and it was always appreciated, especially in a town like Calgary. I would heartily recommend Crystal to you for ministry."

"It is a privilege for me to recommend the ministry of Crystal Taylor. Not only has she ministered in our Fellowship but on many occasions she has shared her ministry at the "Loaves and Fishes.", a free restaurant where many come to be fed and where many experience fellowship and the love of Christ. Crystal has a special way of touching the hearts of these needy people. Not only is she a talented singer but she projects such a sense of warmth and joy as she shares. Her ministry emanates from a life that is devoted to Christ and His kingdom. I know that God will continue to bless many through her commitment to glorify God."

Here's what I wrote and sent, meant every word! Hi Jeff, I'm Randy King president of the Fgbmfi chapter in Yorkton Saskatchewan. I am writing to highly recommend Herb and Crystal Taylor as speakers for chapter banquets. The Taylor's have been used extensively over the years for fgbmf in Western Canada and in December we used them for an outreach banquet in a nearby community and 14 individuals made a decision for Christ. They have a simple but effective format they use with Crystals music and Herbs testimony that ushers in The Holy Spirit to open people's hearts. They are great people that desire and need to be used for the purpose of winning souls. I know it's sometimes uncomfortable bringing in speakers on a recommendation but I've seen the results of there ministry first hand keeping in mind to be effective the unsaved have to be invited for great results to occur.
