Richard has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and ambition. He is a pleasure to work with and is very congenial. He is a self motivated individual. He is capable of speaking to large crowds and small groups. He is definitely a leader rather than a follower. In addition to his excellent scholastic accomplishments, he has proven his leadership ability by organizing fundraisers to provide young people an opportunity to attend mission trips and other events from the church. He is also a most dependable team player. His good judgment ensures a logical and practical approach to his endeavors. Richard would be an asset to any organization, and I am happy to give him my wholehearted endorsement.

Richard Blue started the youth group at Bayou Blue United Methodist Church with great energy knocking on doors to enlist the neighborhood children for a great adventure of which my two kids were a part. His enthusiasm and Love for the kids was undeniable, making sure no kid was left out. The children really took to Richard and he was able to instill in them the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Some of these children never seen the inside of a church and didn’t even know what a cross was, some even thought cursing was a part of everyday language. With Richard’s Ministries, he was able to reach these children and make a real difference in their lifes. The Youth Group at Bayou Blue United Methodist continues today because of the vision and effort of Mr. Richard Blue and I want to Thank him for that!
