Leah was a tremendous encouragement to our whole group. Her music is not of the shallow, "Jesus is a friend of mine," variety. It speaks of a relationship forged in questioning, pain, trial and the messiness of real life. But in the end, it is that special relationship with the Lord that shines through in all that Leah says and does. Her testimony and her music present a unified message that reminds us that faith is worth it and that our hope is for real.
Blessings on you and Jan!

I really appreciated the testimony and music that you shared with us this evening. The music that you do speaks directly to the heart. I really needed to hear it this evening.
Blessings to you,
Leah, I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for you and Beth coming to Henderson Hills Baptist Church. It was great night of fellowship!!! Not only did you bring your amazing talent!!! But more importantly you brought the joy of what Christ has done in your life and that joy filled the room and was a blessing to experience. We hope to schedule again.

TO LEAH AND THE CREW AT JOYFUL SOUND RECORDING AND MARTENSEN MINISTRIES, I WANT TO THANK YOU SINCERELY FOR PERFORMING AT OUR FACILITY ON SUNDAY. YOUR SHOW WAS A HIT! OUR CROWD REALLY LOVED THE WAY YOU MADE THE EVENING FUN AND INTERACTIVE.
IT IS OBVIOUS THAT YOU ENJOY PERFORMING FOR PEOPLE AND THAT YOUR STAFF IS EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND COMPETENT. THERE WAS AN ATMOSPHERE THAT NIGHT WHICH WAS JOYFUL AND COMFORTING. WE HAD SOME PEOPLE THERE WHO HAD NEVER VISITED OUR CHURCH BEFORE. I BELIEVE THEY WILL COME BACK DUE IN LARGE PART TO THE EXPERIENCE THEY ENCOUNTERED AT YOUR CONCERT.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT ANYONE LOOKING FOR AN ENJOYABLE EVENING OF FUN MUSIC,AND FELLOWSHIP,BOOK YOU INTO THEIR VENUE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU PERFORM AT THE NUMEROUS OTHER EVENTS WE DISCUSSED PLANNING WITHIN OUR CONFERENCE OF CHURCHES. MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU AND YOUR MINISTRIES.
SERVING HIM RADICALLY,

Oh, no! Not another message from Alan Adams!!! Yes, but this one's quite different. . . a week ago we were blessed here in Frankford by the music ministry of Leah Martensen, a Christian soloist and recording artist from Toledo, Ohio. Leah and her husband Jan are active members of Crossroads Community Church in Temperance, Michigan, pastored by Glenn Teal, with whom many of us are acquainted.
Leah ministered to us in an hour-long concert on Saturday evening, singing some of her own songs. And she contributed positively to the Sunday morning worship. Leah and Jan travel to their ministry engagements in a motor-home. Jan handles all the audio-visual aspects of the ministry which are quite impressive.
I have no hesitation in recommending Leah Martensen's ministry to you. Her down-to-earth style while singing heavenly realities is refreshing. Leah has a beautiful voice and a warm, engaging manner. Let's bring her often to this country!
Sincerely, your colleague,
Leah's music ministry crosses all generational barrier. I have seen children and adults moved by the gift of song God has placed in Leah's heart.
Leah has ministered to truck drivers melting their hearts as they heard God's love proclaimed to them. We have enjoyed hearing Leah's powerful testimony reaching those God places in her path. You too will be blessed by her witness.

Leah, Thank you so much for the wonderful concert. It was a blessing to have you share your gift with us. I am excited about the children who are being sponsored.

Dear Leah: Might I take this opportunity, on behalf of our congregation, to express to you our sincere appreciation for your coming to London to minister to us in music. We all appreciated, and were blessed by your music and it was great that you included congregational participation as well.
Again, thank you for being with us, it was our pleasure to welcome you. Perhaps we might be able to look forward to another visit at some point in the future.

It was our distinct pleasure to have Leah Martensen as a special guest for our Sunday evening Drive-In service of Newberg Norton Bible Church. Assisted by her husband Jan, Leah presented an entertaining and challenging message of faith and salvation.
She reaches out to the believer as well as the non-believer to renew or accept faith in Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
Newberg Norton Bible Church's Sunday evening Drive-In service is an annual outreach ministry. June 18, 2000 was Leah's premier engagement. We invited Leah back June 24, 2001.
Our Pastor and the Church well received Leah and Jan on those visits. I received many requests for a return visit. It is my intention to invite Leah to return and share with us again. I anticipate the members of our congregation will invite more people to visit our Church during Leah's next visit.

IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE TO FULLY RECOMMEND THE MINISTRY OF LEAH R. MARTENSEN TO YOUR CHURCH OR CHRISTIAN FUNCTION. SHE HAS BEEN IN CONCERT AT OUR MINISTRY ON TWO SEPARATE DATES AND AT A MORNING SERVICE AT A CLOSE ASSOCIATE'S CHURCH. ON ALL THREE OCCASIONS MS. MARTENSEN NOT ONLY OFFERED A PROFESSIONAL AND WELL CARRIED OUT PROGRAM BUT ALSO GENUINELY MINISTERED TO THE PEOPLE ON A LEVEL THAT THEY WERE PRESENTLY ON.
SHE RADIATES AN OPENNESS AND HUMILITY WITH A UNIQUE ENTHUSIASM THAT IS HIGHLY INFECTIOUS AND REFRESHING. MS. MARTENSEN'S HEART IS CLEARLY CENTERED IN THE WORK THAT GOD HAS LAID BEFORE HER.
HER MANNER AND CONDUCT WERE AT ALL TIMES APPROPRIATE AND SUBMISSIVE TO THE AUTONOMY OF OUR MINISTRY. WITH OUT RESERVATION I CAN GIVE MY FULL RECOMMENDATION OF THE MINISTRY OF LEAH R. MARTENSEN.

We had Leah Martensen at Beulah Baptist in East Central Alabama and we were totally blessed by her sweet voice and video display. Leah has a unique gift from God for reaching people through music that moves those who hear her closer to God. I highly recommend that you have Leah come and inspire your worship of God.
