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
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
