Having Don Currin minister the Word of God to both our Flowing Faith Conference and the annual meeting of the Sovereign Grace Baptist Fellowship was such a tremendous blessing that, though a recommendation was never solicited by Brother Don or anyone attached to his ministry, I was convicted so deeply in the value of his ministry as a missionary and itinerant preacher, that I wrote a letter commending his ministry. The content of my recommendation may be read below:

Re: Unsolicited Endorsement and Recommendation of Don Currin Ministries
Dearest Brethren and Co-Laborers in Christ Jesus:
Greetings in Jesus Christ’s precious and exalted name.
In the summer of 2010, knowing that our congregation in Anniston would host the 10th Annual Meeting of the Sovereign Grace Baptist Fellowship, Paul Washer recommended that I check the availability of Don Currin; and what a blessing that turned out to be.
Brother Currin had not only ministered to our Annual Meeting, but was flexible and accommodating to minister God’s Word to us for our four-day Flowing Faith Conference. His messages were timely and appropriate, filled with truth that was tailored from heaven just for our spiritual needs. Brother Don’s wife, Cindy, also ministered to the pastor’s wives and other ladies present while the men of the SGBF conducted our annual business meeting.
What is most evident about Brother Don’s ministry, is his passionate heart to see Christ’s churches thrive in the gospel truth, to see Christ’s people grow in the grace of God’s Word, and to see the local congregations fulfill their call as that blessed means Christ has ordained to advance His kingdom. His clear preaching, his transparent humility, his love for God’s Word, and his tender care for God’s people are merely the tip of the iceberg in this ministry that God has certainly blessed.
Brother Don has not solicited this recommendation in any way. As the dust has settled post-conference, our hearts still reflect upon the blessed Word received through my dear brother’s prayerful ministry. I whole-heartedly commend Don Currin and his wife, Cindy, to you as faithful servants of Christ Jesus; and I pray that the Lord continues to provide them every opportunity to bless others for God’s glory.
Through our time together, not only have I received the blessed opportunity to know Don a bit more as an itinerant evangelist with Don Currin ministries and as a missions director with HeartCry Missionary Society, I am tremendously blessed to be able to call Don my friend. If the opportunity would arise again by God’s providence, I would not hesitate to have Don and Cindy minister to our congregation again, and again.
By God’s grace and for His glory,
Jon J. Cardwell
