John Wayne

Most of you know John Wayne as an actor.  You may not know what 
happened to him before he died. This is that story!
  Robert Schuller's teenage daughter, Cindy, was in a motorcycle accident and
had to have her leg amputated.  John Wayne is a big fan of Robert Schuller.
He heard Dr. Schuller say on one of his programs that his daughter 
had been in an accident and had to have her leg amputated.
John Wayne wrote a note to her saying:
Dear Cindy,
Sorry to hear about your accident.
Hope you will be all right.  
                John Wayne
The note was delivered to her and she decided she wanted to  
write John Wayne a note in reply.  She wrote:
Dear Mr. Wayne,

I got your note.
Thanks for writing to me. 
I like you very  much.
I am going to be all right because Jesus is going to help me.
Mr. Wayne, do you know Jesus? 
I sure hope you know Jesus, Mr. Wayne,
because I cannot imagine heaven being complete
without John Wayne being there.  I hope, if you don't
know Jesus, that you will give your heart to Jesus right now.  
See you in heaven. 

And she signed her name. 

She had just put that letter in an envelope, sealed it,
and written across the front of it "John Wayne";
when a visitor came into her room to see her.  
He said'  "What are you doing?"
She replied,
  "I just wrote a letter to John Wayne, but I don't know how to get it to him."
  He said,  "That's funny, I am going to have dinner
with John Wayne tonight at the Newport Club
down at Newport Beach.  Give it to me and
I will give it to him."

She gave him the letter and he put it in his coat pocket.
There were twelve of them that night sitting around
the table for dinner.  They were laughing and cutting up
and the guy happened to reach in his pocket and
felt that letter and remembered.  John Wayne
was seated at the end of the table and the guy took the letter out and said,
  "Hey, Duke, I was in Schuller's daughter's room today and she 
wrote you a letter and wanted me to give it to you.  Here it is.
  They passed it down to John Wayne and he opened it.  They kept on
laughing and cutting up and someone happened to look down at John Wayne.  
  He was crying.
  One of them said,  "Hey, Duke, what's the matter?"
He said (and can't you hear him saying it?),
"I want to read you this letter."
He read the letter.  Then he began to weep.
He folded it, put it in his pocket, and he pointed to the man who
delivered it to him and said,
  "You go tell that little girl that right now, in this restaurant, 
right here,
  "John Wayne gives his heart to Jesus Christ and I will see her in
Three weeks later John Wayne died!
