The Venice Beach mission, Lighting The Way, is an oasis following the Bible’s teaching to go out into the market place bearing witness. It shows that impressive buildings and fine clothes are not needed, for His love is everywhere. It gives hope to the fainthearted... and guidance to people who have lost their way, and to those who have never encountered the true word of God, LTW gives the inspiration to go and find out more about Him. The mission helps us to see that God and His love are all around us.ValerieEngland
I had been living in Los Angeles for about a month when I met Dwayna at the Lighting The Way table in 2002. I had been looking for a church home and fellowship with other Christians and stopped at her table after noticing the sign she was displaying: “See what God says about your future...for FREE.” She invited me to attend church with her, and I found a new home at her church. LA can be a lonely place, and had it not been for Dwayna and Lighting The Way, I would have not found a church home at the CMA church of Santa Monica where I met some of the wonderful people I now can call my friends. Lighting The Way is a real blessing and much needed addition to the Venice boardwalk. In the presence so many mystics and fortunetellers, it’s refreshing to see people sharing the true Gospel of Jesus Christ with gentleness, love, and respect.JosephUSA
