Dwayna, Thank you so much for answering my questions so quickly. You answered my questions pertaining to the Council of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood views. You posted an article on your website that allowed me see the truth of where CBE stands. I would have never known what their true position was, had it not been for you. Thank you. You helped me to understand the danger of taking sides. These two organizations have been battling it out for years, even bringing the Trinity into it, to support their debates! I'm not taking sides with either of these two groups. I'm going to stay focused on what God commands us to do, and that is spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love to read all your articles; they are so informing, and I have a safe place to go and get an objective second opinion. I really do hope I meet you someday. Well...I'm most certain I will. :- ) Thanks again, Dwayna, you really encourage me to be steadfast and strong about my beliefs. I will be pressing on. The article you emailed me today was so uplifting. Love and many blessings,MelaniePA, USA
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
