I saw Andy preach one time back in around 96 or so and he was really good. I recall:

"A fellow came up and asked me if he would be a Baptist after getting saved, and I told him that once you get saved you should find out that Baptist isn't anything but a label that either blow off on the way up or burns off on the way down".

I've thought about him a lot just here recent, and was even at his website the other day and saw that he was in bad health and not able to do his ministry that much. I'm grateful that I had that chance to see him and learn some things.

I had the honor to see him preach and sing (he had an amazing voice).
