RUSH: Laurie in Indianapolis. Hi. I’m glad you waited. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. I just wanted to call and let you know that my husband and I attended the Cincinnati homeschool convention and we went to go hear Dr. Carson speak. And we were surprised and delighted at the graciousness of you and your wife of giving us the Rush Revere book.
RUSH: Oh, yeah, we kind of did this under the radar. There was a big homeschool convention in Cincinnati over the weekend, and we got in touch with the people there, and they graciously let us help. We wanted to give books. Saturday night was the appearance of Dr. Carson, and we wanted to put a copy of the book on every seat. It’s just something to do, and the homeschool people were just great. So I’m glad you got yours.
CALLER: Oh, we were thrilled. Everybody there was just excited and excited about the message that you gave us and it just was wonderful. It just topped off like the cherry on the top of the evening.
RUSH: Well, that’s ’cause it was a total surprise. You had no idea.
CALLER: No. No, not at all.
RUSH: It was just a two-minute video, just little two-minute video before Dr. Carson. Was he not great, by the way?
CALLER: Oh, he was fabulous. Yes. I was so impressed with him, yes.
RUSH: You all have a great organization, by the way.
CALLER: Oh, well, thank you.
RUSH: Well, you all are doing the Lord’s work — you really are — which is why, you know, we’ve had a lot of homeschool people who have told us that they loved the Rush Revere books.
CALLER: Oh, well, see, my oldest son is a history nut. My husband’s been wanting to buy the book and we just haven’t had the money and was kind of just such a wonderful surprise to get the book then.
RUSH: Well, how about that?
RUSH: I worked out even great.
CALLER: He got home yesterday and started reading it immediately.
RUSH: What was the book? You got the second one? You probably don’t have the second one.
RUSH: Well, let me take care of that.
CALLER: Thank you.
RUSH: Yeah, yeah.
CALLER: Thank you.
RUSH: Now, you’ve gotta —
CALLER: That is so sweet.
RUSH: I know; yeah, I know. I am that way. But keep it secret.
CALLER: Okay, we will.
RUSH: Just between us. But, yeah, you’ve gotta have both, and then you’ve gotta get any others that might happen.
CALLER: Oh, yeah, I plan on it. Actually, my husband and I both got one so I was planning on giving it around to my homeschool group for other kids to read, too.
CALLER: I haven’t heard you talk much about homeschoolers. So my friends, when I told them that you did this, were very excited about that.
RUSH: Well, you know, some things we like to do under the radar. Mr. Snerdley snuck your phone call in, in fact. If you must know, we were really grateful that the homeschool people were receptive to the idea, and you’re really so kind and nice to call about it. Look, I’ve gotta run ’cause I’m out of time. But, if you would hang on, Mr. Snerdley will get your address and we’ll get you a copy of the second book, Rush Revere and the First Patriots, and the audio versions of both, Laurie. So thank you. Thanks very much.
