"I have had the privilege of witnessing first hand John Lawson's powerful testimony of a life transformed through Jesus Christ. I was impressed with John's ability to connect with our prisoners and share a hard hitting uncompromising Biblical presentation as to the need for offenders to take personal responsibility in admitting to wrong done to victims and to God and for the subsequent need for confession and to live a daily life of transformation in and through Christ"

To whom it may concern

This letter is to endorse the work of John Lawson, and to recommend him as a motivational speaker to young people from all walks of life.

As principal of a large multi-cultural urban state school, I found John’s testimony to be a real inspiration. My staff and 600 students, who were fortunate enough to hear John speak, have told me that they feel the same way.

In the state educational system here in New Zealand, we have to be mindful that not all our community members share a Christian worldview, and this choice is rigorously protected by law. John was able to minister The Word in a non-threating and welcoming way. His words have caused many at this school to examine their beliefs, or encourage and uphold those who are Christians in this secular world.

I have no hesitation in recommending John as a speaker to young people and wish him well in his mission to share The Gospel.

Yours Sincerely

David Latimer

Dear Sir/Madam

John Lawson’s story is a powerful and authentic one that captivates people of all ages.  Young people are particularly drawn to the rawness of a life that was engulfed by violence and darkness, with no hope abounding, that becomes transformed by love and grace.

Hudson Park High School in East London, Eastern Cape province, South Africa, had the privilege of hosting John in a school assembly as well as at a couple of the Student Christian Association Meetings.  Many students and teachers were eternally impacted by his story. 

I highly recommend John as a speaker and contributor and am certain that he will continue to inspire and impact people of all ages across nations.


Kind Regards,

I pray that this ministry will only seek to Glorify God through our Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit.

I pray for boundless opportunities to share the Gospel and to teach the church to do the same.

I pray for wisdom and discernment in all we do, that we may through Him accomplish what He has instructed us to do.

I pray that we seek The Lord Jesus in everything we do.

In the name of Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour
