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
“Dwayna's passion to love Jesus Christ, serve the Lord and to proclaim Him as the Way, the Truth and the Life throughout the world is an infectious blessing in the kingdom of God. It is an honor and privilege to work with her and to take part in what little way I can with Dwayna and with those who are associated with, partnered in, and ministering alongside Lighting the Way.”Pastor Jon CardwellSovereign Grace Baptist ChurchAnniston, AL
