Texe, though I never met him impacted my life very positively. I believe Texe is a genuine man of God, a rare attribute in these last days. Thank you Texe for your life. I hope one day to meet him in person.

I had the pleasure of meeting Brother Texe Marrs in person and spending a few hours talking with him, and my impression of him was that he was a sincere, genuine Christian man. The attribute that stood out to me the most was his kindness. I'm thankful for his life and work.

A fearless man who would not mince words which were always concise and polite. Mr. Marrs leaves shoes which will be very hard to fill considering the level of his thoroughness and competence. I will pray for the eternal peace to his soul.
