And all of them, virtually all of them, whether they’re preachers or not, have a healing compassion in their heart. And I thank God for Oral Roberts University. It’s a wonderful academic institution with bachelors and masters and doctors’ degrees. And I’m very proud that God chose you, my son, to be the president, the second president, and the second first lady after the first lady, Evelyn.
LR: A good example.
OR: I’m very proud of you, Richard and Lindsay. I have complete confidence in you that ORU will remain the same, on the same foundation, the same honor code, the same healing emphasis, the same excellence of higher education, and educating the children of our people who believe and who have prayed for a university that was first-class all the way, and now they have Oral Roberts University.
RR: Stand over here by Lindsay, Lester.
OR: Let me say just one word to the thousands and hundreds of thousands of Partners, hundreds of thousands of Partners
RR: Come in here, Lindsay.
OR: who have made this possible? Without you it could not have been built. We spent over $400 million to build this whole enterprise here for the glory of God. You provided that, and you’re providing the extra that it takes to keep it going.
RR: That’s right.
OR: Because the students can never pay as much as it takes to operate. And I thank every Partner, every friend, whether you sent one gift or ten gifts or a hundred gifts, or if you’re still doing it. Thank you in Christ’s name and God will multiply your seed back.
