For as long as I have known and followed this organization, I have been impressed with the integrity of Kathleen Thompson's vision and determination to fulfill this vision. She is extremely self-disciplined in her own activities, not only to improve her own skills, but in her work to organize, present, and publicize the work of this organization. The many variations of preparation and presentation of her visions is breathtaking when you understand that Kathleen is the one who directs it all. I am a regular supporter and have been for many years and find it to be a joy to be a small part of it.

I have seen Kathleen Thompson in events and performances both in Europe and in the US. They are always a delight, telling a story in entirely unique and moving ways. Her organization, E Bellherst, is a treasure chest of talent which reaches out in so many ways in order to bless her various audiences, without the price of a ticket. It is the only way so many, whether students of hers, or expectant audiences, may be able to benefit from her talents and thus have their lives changed. I've seen her perfrmances in my home and others, at public venues, churches, and on the streets. She makes costumes, writes scripts, trains actors and dancers, sends out publicity, makes booking arrangements, transports the team, cooks dinners and anything else needed. All freely given, with much sacrifice on her part.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own life as an inspiration to excell in my gifts, and be disciplined in doing what is needed to put them to use. She has also given pictures of truth to my friends, neighbors, and church which they remember for years. One example is her portrayal of Esther from the Old Testament.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I hope that someone or a group of someones could provide funds to pay for a personal assistant/ marketing agent for her. The clerical work is so timeconsuming that it robs her of time to be creative.

A review of a meeting with Belleherst Artistic Director Kathleen brings a vivid memory of a Worship Camp Week, in our town of Glamsbjerg, Denmark, end june 1991, titled "a christlike love with tabernacle arts, in relationships amongst the brethren, between mates to our Heavenly Groom"- Located in the Apprentice Wing, formal housing for Greenhouse practics students, teachers with diff. gifts encouraged to use pers. talents, drama, song, worship. This was and can be of joy and life importance to groups of even mixed ages. To have someone catch that thing in you that rejoices the Master as well as is health to ones next and self is an unforgettable experience-
May be a Talent Hunting Contest could bring new originality forth to be guided joyously past those, that are tired themselves of vulgar tendencies? (Practical drama experience, down to earth togetherness, made it lessons for life here! The program also included morning swim, meals, forest walks, readings, drama repetition, etc. ) Kind regards, Mrs. Greet Mose

Having had the responsibility in a small team that took care of the local church´s youth training, mixed ages up to teen ager - during 12 years.

... feel good if a personal uplift would be the result of getting to know more about drama, discipline, fellowship, jumping in line, foodcare, graciousness!

As an eighteen-year-boy had a chance to meet in my way of life Kethleen Ann Thompson in one of her schools in Poland. She is a teacher of theater, movement, dance and many other techniques of expression and express yourself on stage, she changed my life. She taught me express myself, not only in the theater, but in everyday life, among humans. Communicate with the world in a better way. To love and accept others. Presentation of myself as a person. Since that time, since past 22 years. I still remember and use what I learned from Kathleen. She is one of the characters, whom I will never forget and I will always remember what I learned. Bearing the honor to stay in her company.

I learned from a school in Poland, led by Kathleen, expressing myself on stage and in life. I experienced the professionalism, love, openness, ability to express my views.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give greater opportunities for funding projects which carries Kathleen. The possibilities it makes reaching a larger number of young people and influence their lives.

i have been touched by the the performances of this organization and how they highlight social causes that need to be brought to light so that others may get involved. one of her u.s performances was a catalyst for several organizations involved in helping victims of sex trafficing work more closely together and start a network to keep in tough with each other and others active in that cause.

Kathleen is a teacher supreme. She has committed her life to teaching others the benefit of expression through physical theater. One of the greatest delights has been the conversational theater which incorporates the audience in dialogue after the performance. She is building community and increasing the communication about issues that concern us in our world today like human trafficking, intimacy, commitment. She is a model for the coming generations who she works with.

Seeing the growth and development of Kathleen and her schools in Latvia and Poland has been the most exciting. The students continue to develop and perform in their countries and in festivals. They are taking leadership in the on-going schools.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would want a greater budget for venues and publicity for the incredible performances she does so more people could be exposed to her wonderful, creative work.
