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
