I just got back from Venice, and I had a blast! ... It also challenged me to learn about different religions to more effectively reach the lost. Three people listened to me present the gospel message of salvation, and that was just an amazing experience for me! You are an inspiration to us by the way you spend so much of your time and energy with these people you could so easily avoid. Thank you for letting our group come down to minister at Venice. I look forward to working beside you again soon.Jennifer McNettFaith Community ChurchPalmdale, CA
Dear Dwayna, My name is Sam Park, and I stumbled across your blog posts from March 2008 containing your thoughts about godly relationships and about being single. I browsed through just a tiny fraction of your many blog posts and also visited the LTW website, and I was just so encouraged by all that God is doing through you. I'm a senior at USC in Los Angeles, and I know how it feels to have a burden for the lost as I walk through Hollywood and Santa Monica and other parts of LA, or even just every day on campus as I go to my classes. So, to read about the ministries in West Hollywood and Venice fills me with so much joy. Sometimes I feel so small, thinking about how God could possibly reach out to these people, but when I read your story I am so encouraged. I appreciate very much the wisdom you share in your blog entry about how men should lead the relationship, particularly your comparison of men in California to those in New York. To hear it from a woman's perspective...it is something that I will take to heart as I look for a wife. It resonates with me since I've spent my whole life in Southern California and also because I'm Korean (many Asian men tend to be passive). I am learning more and more about what it means to be a man of God...Sam ParkLos Angeles, CA
