The LTWW outreach table currently sets up in NYC at Columbus Circle and the Long Island Railroad with free materials specifically for Jews, Muslims, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, Hindus, Catholics and people involved in occult spirituality, explaining to anyone who approaches the table why we believe in Jesus as the only Savior. No one is turned away, and everyone is treated with respect and love. All conversations are based on logic, and there is no yelling whatsoever or randomly handing out of tracts. This approach is much appreciated by the people of NYC. Everyone who takes a book or Bible promises to read whatever is taken before we give it at no charge. There are also CDs by Walter Martin (the original “Bible Answer Man”) on topics such as “The Riddle of Reincarnation” and “Transcendental Meditation” from a Christian perspective, as well as articles on Baha’i and explanations to disprove Gnostic interpretations of the Bible. Materials for Christians include sermons by various pastors including Erwin Lutzer’s sermon “One Minute After You Die” and radio programs from Jan Markell’s Olive Tree Ministries on current events from a Christian perspective. Free Hebrew/English New Testaments are offered to Jewish people along with a list of prophecies Jesus fulfilled from the Old Testament to the New. We have sermons, tracts and Bibles in many different languages for tourists when we set up the outreach table at Columbus Circle. All answers are based on what the Bible teaches. LTW is an evangelistic outreach of apologetics, planting seeds, sharing the Gospel and referring people to attend a Bible teaching church in Manhattan.
I was raised a Moslem. I had heard about Jesus, but no one had ever told me that I was a sinner with no way of earning God’s favor, based on my own effort. Dwayna told me that Jesus died for my sins, and I started to cry. I knew in my heart that it was true. She asked me if I wanted to become a Christian, and I told her that I did. I prayed and asked God to forgive me of my sins. Dwayna gave me a Bible and a devotional and marked certain verses to read. I am looking forward to getting to know the One true God by reading the Bible every day. I am now a Christian, trusting Jesus as my Savior.AngelaPersia
The Great Commission speaks of going into all the world and telling the Good News of Jesus Christ. What if the world came to you? That is what has happened at Venice Beach on Ocean Front Walk. Lighting The Way ministries, led by Dwayna Litz, exists to share God’s grace to people from all over the world. Lighting The Way seeks not only to share the Gospel with others, but also to provide a platform where the Christian community in Southern CA can join in to be equipped in evangelism, as well. A variety of individuals, students, and church groups have worked the booth and have come away strengthened and challenged…LTW also helps build trust among the beach locals and the vendors for long term relationships. I have had the privilege of discipling one-on-one someone who came to our church, after being invited from LTW. That person has taken off in his walk with God. It is exciting to be a part of Lighting The Way Worldwide, spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ around the world.JasonPastor, Evanston Bible ChurchEvanston, IL
