“I gave my son a tract from your table and had been praying for his salvation. I came home to find him down on his knees in prayer, asking for God to forgive him of his sins, with the tract I got from your table in front of him as he prayed. His repentance was an answer to my prayers. He had read the tract I got from your ministry table before praying to God for salvation. Thank you so much for your outreach.”GloriaNew York, NY
The Venice Beach mission, Lighting The Way, is an oasis following the Bible’s teaching to go out into the market place bearing witness. It shows that impressive buildings and fine clothes are not needed, for His love is everywhere. It gives hope to the fainthearted... and guidance to people who have lost their way, and to those who have never encountered the true word of God, LTW gives the inspiration to go and find out more about Him. The mission helps us to see that God and His love are all around us.ValerieEngland
