Thank you for the opportunity to purchase this.
I first heard it on radio in the early days of my Christian walk and never forgot it. Since I'm a blind person, David's type of dramatization appealed to me as he paid as much attention to auditory conveyance as he did visual. I am also a believer of Jewish heritage and I had many forbearers who sounded just like Mister Innkeeper (smile). Thank you and your family for sharing David and his gifts with us.
I've seen a number of your performances, but nothing was more
impacting than when you visited our Valley College and Career
group in Monroe Washington and performed the Great King for us.
That was 12 years ago. Thanks for teaching us young adults what
it means to give selflessly to ministry.
I cannot put into words what you have meant to me as a Christian man.
I loved how you would make me laugh, smile and think about my faith.
I loved how my children would sit mesmerized by your stories and talk
about them for days. As a Christian man, many things in life died hard -
I still had a tough exterior and didn't show the love and joy of the Lord,
but saw through you and your life that I could be man-like yet also be
Christ-like. I could never say thank you loud enough. I know that you
are in a different season of your life - I pray for God's perfect will, and
look forward to the new season!

I wanted to share with you a moment inside a 4th grade classroom at Cedar Park. I w as teaching a "Legacy" Lesson right after we had viewed a segment of "The Great King" DVD and I told the children that I knew the man who was the storytell er. They were SO excited and they wanted me to tell David that they really LOVE...D the story, and that he was a really good storyteller and that they thought that he was the bestest EVER to tell a story and that they wanted me to tell him that. The boys thought that he was really a warrior in disguise (oh yes, we all know that is TRUE).
I told them that David couldn't publicly tell stories anymore because God had him on a different adventure, so they offerred to pray for him! So please tell David that yet another generation of young people are forever changed because of the Great King tale as told by our own beloved David Shelton! :-)

Dear David and Debra,
Our grandaughter Alexis continues to memorize Scripture and directed this year's Christmas play at my church. An extension of your TRANSFORMED! ministry to her! Thank you so much.

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Shelton,
I wanted to personally thank you for your ministry. I first saw one of your performances when I was in 1st or 2nd grade (back in the early 90's), when you came to Silver Lake Chapel in Everett. I was so young but even now, nearly 20 years later, I can still vividly remember portions of Mr. Shelton's performance. He was captivating. I just today thought of him and looked up your ministry online, and was thrilled to find that I can purchase his performances on DVD. I am a Mom now to a year and a half old little boy and another little boy on the way, and I can't wait until they're old enough to watch these with me.
I understand that Mr. Shelton has dementia now, so I hope he can understand this email and how grateful I am for his ministry ... I know he has touched alot of souls ... including this one little girl from way back when.
God bless you and your family! Much love!

Hi David and Debra,
May you be refreshed and renewed. Your faithfulness to the Lord has
been a witness to all who know you. You all have a special place in
God's heart and I know His plans for you are only for good. We are
all definitely on a journey and there seems to always be twists and
turns we never imagined, but I'm learning that what matters in the end
is that we never forget that God's love never changes.
Blessings to you all,
Kim (mother of Chloe, who's been with us for 3.5 years)
