To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is to introduce Randy and Elizabeth Davenport. They have been a vital part of Sheffield Family Life Center for many years. They are both people of excellent character and integrity. They have worked as a part of our prison ministry as far back as I can remember. They have worked in various other ministries as well; such as our Christmas program and Operation Christmas Child.
I am confident that they will be an asset wherever they live, work, and do ministry. I recommend them to you without reservation. Please feel free to contact me for any further information I can give you regarding Randy and Elizabeth.
Sincerely, George W. Westlake, III

To Whom it May Concern
I write this letter with joy in my heart in recommending the ministry of Randy and Elizabeth Davenport.
Randy and Elizabeth have joined us in Texas on many occassions of prison ministry crusade weekends, and may I add at considerable expense to them.
Thiers is a ministry of love and compassion to the prisoners. The preaching that is delivered by Elizabeth is powerful in the Holy Ghost, and Randy's music inspires the entire prison congregation to new heights of praise and worship.
Randy writes many of his own songs, some of them on the subject of what prisoners go through during incarceration. Prison chaplains always want to know when I can get them back to Texas.
Over the last twenty five
years, our ministry has had scores of preachers, praise and worship leaders, and solo singers in our weekend crusades and Sunday services. I can say without reservation that this couple will definitely be a superb blessing whether they are in prisons, churches, conferences or any other meetings.
We bless the Davenport's in every mission where God calls them.
Sincerely in Jesus,

“I really enjoyed the service you all put on and truly pray you all will return next year! On the last day, Sunday, the lady preacher preached the best message I ever heard in prison, or in the free world. Wow!! I have been on this unit for 10 years, 6 months and 20 days. Will you tell her THANK YOU, for she was truly a blessing to this old sinners ears!” D.C. – Clements Unit, Amarillo

To Whom It May Concern:
Randy and Elizabeth are a real delight. What a dynamic duo-100% sold-out for our Lord Jesus Christ. During their time with us at the Church on the Street, they were busy every day, ministering the jails, at neighborhood outreaches and in our services.
Randy captivates his audience with his God-given songs that seem to tell everyone’s story. Although mellow in his presentation, his music is very powerful. There is nothing superficial about Randy, Jesus is presented in his lyrics and style. Elizabeth is anointed to preach. She boldly proclaims the Word of the Lord, often with tears in her eyes. Together they are taking the Gospel behind the prison walls and to the hungry on the streets.
I have known this couple for two years and consider it a great privilege to partner with them. Like us, they are in the trenches, genuine soldiers for Jesus Christ. I look forward to their return to Phoenix and Church on the Street.

To whom it may concern;
I’d like to recommend Randy and Elizabeth Davenport for prison ministry. They have ministered here for church and Teen Challenge Meetings. Teen Challenge is a drug, alcohol and crime related Christian in-house sixteen month program. The ages of the men range from 18-40.
Both Randy and Elizabeth have a unique way of relating to the men through music and message. They are real, honest, and want only the best for those they minister to.
Not only have I been a part of their meetings, but they have stayed in my home, and are welcome anytime. Should you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
Sincerely, Jeanne M. Mohr
Brother and Sister Davenport are a great blessing to the body of Christ. They both were with me at Angola Prison in Louisiana. We had a weekend Revival as well as ministry on LA Death Rowe. We all were Blessed by their Ministry. The Anointing of God is on their lives. God Bless The Davenport
