Nice to see on page 33 of the March, 2013 issue of Genii, that FCMer and super Gospel magician Andre' Kole is the Lifetime Achievement Recipient from the IBM, July 17-20, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency in Phoenix, Arizona. Go to http://www.Magician.org for full details. Simply Magical!

I have been blessedly involved with three of Andre' outreach programs in Kalamazoo (one at the massive Miller Auditorium on the campus of WMU, two at Chenery Auditorium)- just a wonderful kind man doing a great show. After one of the Kalamazoo shows, we went out to eat at our local "TGIF" Friday's Restaurant with his crew, Andre' is just a really graious guy. I took him over to WKZO radio for an preshow interview- it was wonderful how Andre' on this secular station so humbly described his work with Campus Crusade.

Andre' performed at the FCM International convention a few years ago in Indiana, hopefully we can get him back soon in Nashville! I have one of his posters framed (the one where he is standing in the palm of a Hand in a universe setting)- I really would like to get him to sign it someday. Some of his posters are on display in the permanent collection of the American Museum of Magic in Marshall, Michigan- up on the second floor.
