"On a more personal note, I would like to share what this weekend meant to us. My daughter Rebecca and I have been in Alaska for the last two years with very little Christian fellowship there and we arrived at the retreat very much in need of refreshing. Our tears fell throughout the retreat as we felt wave after wave of God's healing presence. It seemed like a gentle rain was falling on those desert places within. As you sang over Rebecca, I sensed a turning point in her heart as she heard you sing of God's desire for her life. Words fail to really thank you both enough, but I felt that it was important to let you know the impact of the retreat on our lives. God bless you!"

"The retreat was awesome. Every person was ministered to in just the way they needed to be...whether it was healing, refreshment, encouragement, or something else..."

"Paul Baskin has the remarkable musical ability to catch the wind of the Spirit. When one listens to his music there is a melodic bridge which connects heaven and earth. His vocal range and presentation mixed with life-giving lyrics and great instrumental presentation makes for an exciting time of worship. You will love this CD! (I Go To the River). We have ordered a large number to give away. This talented singer/songwriter, speaker is a real friend to pastors and a man who loves and proclaims the wonder of God's Kingdom in the midst of His Churches."

"My husband was in Albuquerque in April at a meeting when he met you and heard you sing. He brought me home your River CD. I must tell you what a tremendous blessing that CD has been to us, especially "It's All About You." We have played it over and over prayerfully while traveling and at home and it ministers to us deep in our spirit, refreshing, encouraging, edifying--as true prophecy does. Some of those songs have struck a chord deep within my husband and he plays them over and over as the Spirit calls forth the purposes of God within him." "We have a home business, a medical transcription service, that keeps us before computers most of our days and nights. We hear doctors' reports constantly and some are very distressing to listen to, but your lovely music playing in the background washes our spirits and stirs us to reach out in prayer to those desperate for healing and for God's presence." "Paul, you are a very talented musician who reflects the character of Jesus and the glory of our Father. Your gifting and calling is lovely in the church, and we are honored to walk in our Lord's kingdom with you and your family."
"Paul, thanks for sharing your skills at C and D's home. The music you produce--especially on your CD's, is not only beautiful and uplifting and anointed, it is a work of art that honors God. I really appreciated your sharing how you solicit the most skillful musicians to create an excellent piece of art and craftsmanship ...You demonstrated in a rare way how truly gifting in music can minister, not just entertain or fill a need to have someone lead singing."
