Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. - Proverbs 22:6

"Pastor and Mrs. Thompson provided a safe haven for our son J. We were in need of help to get him focused and through his last year of school. The Thompsons provided him with wrap around Christian support. Our values were upheld and our son came to understand that we were not the only people who believed in living Biblical values day in and day out. They also provided our son with plenty of opportunities for fun, adventure, and wholesome outdoor activities.
I can never thank the Lord enough for the time that our son spent with Pastor Thompson."
"Mr. T, I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am for you to be a great and amazing part of my life. Without you, and of course God, I wouldn't be the person I am now. Thank you for not giving up on me. Thank you for who you are. Thank you for being a Godly man in my life in my time of struggles. Thank you for teaching me that I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. I love you so much and pray for you."
"It is with great pleasure that I write this letter on behalf of Brother Thompson. I worked closely with Mr. Thompson in his role as assistant pastor and youth director under my leadership as pastor of Lighthouse Baptist Church in Superior, MT. Brother Thompson has displayed excellence throughout the years in dealing with young people in particular. I have watched the transformation of many teenage boys as he ministered and taught them. He has influenced them through his integrity and Godly character to achieve success in their own lives. Bro. Thompson is a Godly man of conviction who has a love and heart for teenagers. Without reservation I highly recommend him as a trustworthy mentor and teacher of teens."
"If they [Pastor and Mrs. Thompson] would not have stayed faithful, I would not be preaching, I would not be saved, I would not be married. I would not have gone to Bible college. They stayed faithful even through trials."
"I have known Brother Thompson for over a decade now. In the time I have known him he has demonstrated nothing but a true God-called burden for young men. It has been his life since I have known him to disciple young men in the Bible, teach them character, self-discipline, how to be a biblical man, and educate them in day to day school work all the while allowing them to still be children. I have watched him personally labor in the lives of several young men. Brother Thompson pours his life into the guys that God has sent him sacrificing so much of himself just so they can succeed. I have also witnessed his wife, Sister Thompson, laboring alongside him. She too has a burden and a call on her life for these young men. She genuinely cares for young men and wants nothing more than to see God work in their lives. I highly recommend the Thompson's to work with young men. God has given them not only a heart for young men, but also wisdom on how to work with them. I have seen firsthand Brother Thompson work so patiently and tenderly with youg men that were rebellious and wild all the while keeping composure and dhowing compassion to them. I truly believe the young men that spend time with the Thompson's will take something away with them to where they will grow into outstanding men."
Pastor Thompson blessed my family by taking great care of my son for nine months. My son emerged from his time with the Thompsons as a more mature, more dedicated Christian young man. This son loved the Lord when he went to the Thompsons but was struggling with some temptations that he wanted to overcome. The all-boy environment and the active, energetic, Christian home activities were the perfect extensions of our home. We never had to worry that our son would be taught a watered-down Christianity or that he would be exposed to worldly beliefs. Our son graduated from Pastor’s program and he still has a great love and gratitude for the Thompsons. Our family will carry a lifetime of blessings from our involvement with the Thompsons.
"Thank you for everything. If I had to recommend someone as a great role model, I'd pick you [Pastor Thompson]. I had/have a lot of great memories with you in my time in foster care. Probably the best foster parent/family I've ever had, and again thank you for being here for me now. You honestly don't know how much this truly means to me."
