Pastor Foster, I know you don't remember me, but you helped me years ago as a young man. I was struggling bad w/ ssa and was very active. The words that you deposited in me has blossomed and now I have been FREE for some years now, at least 8-10 years. I have been married for 3 years and we will be starting a family next year.
Somehow the Lord divinely led me to you and I had forgot about you but remembered your name was David when I was recently sharing some things w/ my wife. I spoke to you on the phone years ago, when you were a minister in Florida and you use to mail a newsletter. Today at the gym I picked up a Newsweek magazine and was reading and article about the preacher in Texas and I saw your name. I just want to say THANK YOU for speaking into my life. You were one of the persons the Lord placed in my life to help me when I so desperately needed.
I am proud you are representing the Kingdom - get ready the attack is going to increase greatly after this next election -- I pray for your strength and encourage. Please keep me in prayer as I continue to grow in God, and keep my thought life pure. Thank you so much for your help!

Dear Elder Foster, Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I was privileged to have read your recent magazine editorial regarding homosexuality in the black church and how it is dealt with. Yes, you hit the nail on the head.
I myself was ordained as a deacon in 2001 and an elder in 2004 in the AME Church before my initial ordination I found out first hand that so many religious leaders are preaching one thing and living otherwise. I am glad that someone such as yourself had stepped out so boldly and said what should be practiced. I hope that this can develop into a dialogue for possibly opening new ministries in the Mississippi region, especially since where I am from homosexuality is rampant in this state. So many young African Americans are flocking to Atlanta to become part of the self evolving nucleus of sexual sin and immorality. Unless we speak up and meet the challenge, it will become an even more accepted form of behavior that will lead to destruction.---James GB, Mississippi
"Praise the Lord Pastor Foster, I praise God for you're taking the time to come to [city] and personally ministering to me, and allowing God to use you. The impact on my life has not been fleeting emotionalism, but life altering! Thank you for bringing confirmation, correction and encouragement! After you left, I found myself embarrassed; embarrassed that I had allowed myself to be stuck, unable to make a decision regarding the direction of my life; embarrassed that I had been broadsided by situations to the point of backsliding. And I wouldn't have just been backslidden, I would be in the worse form of backsliding--having the full knowledge of the emptiness of homosexuality and having tasted the goodness of God!
Purpose is coming back into focus! Amongst the most profound things you said for me was, "Go, back to the beginning". God has impressed on me to go back to the beginning of the 9 years of notes that I have, and to read them from the beginning to the present, sermon notes, Bible study notes; in the midst of them are the words God has specifically for me. God filled my early Christian years with prophecy, I was bathed in prophecy--I need to go back and retreive that which He spoke over me, and extract it out; examine it, hold it and cherish it for the precious life that it is." ---GC, Kansas
"Thank you. Thank you for your ministry, your willingness to be used by God, & standing up and telling your testimony." ---JH, Michigan
I know you are a busy man, and I wanted to thank you for your life, the bible says the life was the light of men speaking of Jesus but we stand in His stead on earth, and others are drawn when they see the life of Christ, I'm 26 and my role models are not athletes or politicians, but true men of God, and your testimony is one that is much needed in this time. In these last days there is a famine in the land for the Word, therefore true men of God speaking the Word of God is rare. Pastor I am praying for your strength that you continue to fight the good fight of faith! Be blessed." ---DT, Texas
