Everyone knows how much
fun "found" things can be--letters, photos, shopping lists,
the like. But this is the Information Age, goddamn! Picking up scraps
of paper is just so low-tech. Me? I pick floppy disks out of the trash.
God bless the Macintosh--the following letter was converted from a PC
floppy found coming off the N-train near NYU. Isn't this woman too young
to get sucked into such nonsense?! (Spelling errors were left intact.
I was going to mark them all, but it became tedious. There were just too
many. So much for higher education.) I'm convinced that it's real because
the floppy also contained a number of term papers, all of which contained
similar spelling errors and incredible examples of ignorance. Perhaps
I'll publish one of those next issue.
watched your show this morning for the first time and it was very
inspirational to me. I have scanneed past this channel on many occasions
but for some reason while I was crying the television turned on
and there you were talking to me. I might have accidentily turned
the TV on but it happened. I am only 20 years old and I have an
unbeleivable amount of stress in my life. If its not one thing its
the next. To add to the stress of home, school, and work, i recently
found I why I have been feeling so sick. I found out that I have
Anemia and that it is not safe for me to have children because I
might die in child birth. My boyfreind says that he will be there
for me but he started to pull away from me. He is a born again christian
but he does not act like one so he had turned me completely off
to the spirit of God. For some time now I have felt somekind of
emptiness in my heart but I didn't understand why until today. Mr.
Swaggart, your sermon today deeply moved me. I didn't understand
until today how someone could have such a great love for God. I
prayed with you and I want to learn more. I have just accepted that
God is my savior and that his son died for all of my sins. I also
now believe that God loves me no matter what goes wrong. I have
this inner faith that is so new to me. I just want to thank you
for changing my life. I am deeply greatful.
Peace and Love,
Theresa M. Jacobs
