VIEW STATEMENT Glen Guy, AKA, Dusty Sourdough
Tens of thousands of students have heard Dusty’s message of the importance of reading, writing, and self-esteem. He believes his techniques for teaching these subjects are unusual and one of a kind. The success is proved in the amount of letters of thanks and e-mails he receives. His philosophy is self esteem isn’t taught, but is gained through knowledge. Knowledge is gained through reading and the ability to express oneself in writing.
Even though his ministry, PROSPECTORS FOR GOD, is priority in his heart, he never speaks religion in public schools, he doesn’t have to, the christian love radiates from him like a beacon.
