"So happy to see the fruits of such a precious ministry. Pastors who've prepared themselves at LOGOI. As for me, I am happy to have been a small part of such beautiful work."
"Congratulations to LOGOI on the 50th anniversary that began at Los Pinos Nuevos in Cuba. I heard Les Thompson's voice in their weekly program when I was a youngster. The program included his beautiful singing and it captured our family's heart. The program was silenced, I left Cuba and years later had the privilege of meeting Les when he preached at Allapattah Methodist Church Spanish congregation. The wife of the pastor, Marcela Morales (De Paz) had been a student at Los Pinos Nuevos and having Les preach at our church was like meeting heavenly royalty. I would not see him again until the late 80's when we attended the same church. It was such a privilege to see that his work had continued with LOGOI and FLET. This is a ministry that is dear to my heart and I feel blessed to have met Les and Carolyn and see the way God has used LOGOI to spread the gospel. Congratulations again and may God continue to bless your ministry."
"Thanks for the update regarding the progress of Logoi on the 50 years of service to the Lord. Reminds us of the trips with Les - how the pastors and lay users of Logoi's materials hung on to every word. I was blessed to work with Les, a man who walked the talk. The love that existed between Les and the students was so obvious. In His Service,"
—Jack M. Buckner

"Hello to You!
Yes, I am still here - at 94 and 3/4. I think of you often. Logoi is my favorite place to contribute. I know it isn’t much, but every little bit helps. I hope I am still giving to the “little men” who are studying so hard to get their sermons together. You folks are doing a fantastic work. I still remember your visits to West End many years ago. I think we bonded in the joys of our music and you are stilll really dear to me.
’Bye for now,"
—Betty Harrison, Virginia
"Many congratulations on this 50th anniversary. Blessings for the whole team."
