A Story About Vance Havner
By Dave Fessenden

I had never heard of the guy, but when I was in college, I took some high-school kids from my church to a youth rally where he was the speaker.  When he came on the platform, I thought, “How are these kids ever going to relate to this tottering old fella?”  But from the moment he began speaking, he had them in the palm of his hand, and when he gave an invitation, dozens of kids came forward.  I found out later that I had probably heard him give one of his very last messages.
