Week of June 29, 2009

This is my prayer...   that God will give me the guidance and direction so that I can attain His perfect purpose for my life.


I am ready to begin spreading the word about the Damascus Road Experience. I have posted the first section on the History page, which should help to give readers an idea of why I started this endeavor. God truly is amazing, and nothing in life can compare to having a relationship with the one and only true God. It is amazing to think that the God who created the universe cared so much about me that he sent His only son to die on a cross for my sins.

I have ordered some T-Shirts with the Damascus Road Experience logo on them. I will wear these any time that I am in a large group of people.  I pray that God will use these T-Shirts as conversation starters with people that I run across. I am excited to think that God could use a T-Shirt to start a conversation that could potentially lead to someone becoming a Christian. I did get a few extra T-Shirts made, so please let me know if you want one.

I am currently busy working on creating a Church History Interactive Timeline for the website. I think it is important to understand how the church grew from its roots at Pentecost to where it is today. There are many protestant religions today; however, they all share a common history. Understanding that history will give a person a greater insight into their beliefs. I hope this will also allow people to answer common questions that come up anytime religion is discussed, including:

Church History Timelline (Work in Process)    

Please continue to keep me in prayer as I struggle to find my way on this journey.  I will go wherever He leads me, I just pray that I am receptive to HIs direction and am going in the direction that He wants me to go. 


The Damascus Road Experience is not currently registered as a 501c3 organization, which means that we are not registered with the IRS as a tax exempt organization. We plan to register for 501c3 status once God provides us with the necessary funds. 501c3 status is retroactive meaning that any donations given today will be tax deductible under section 501c3 as long as 501c3 status is attained. The total cost of attaining 501c3 registration is between $500 and $750; I trust that God will provide these funds at the appropriate time. Only donations specifically designated for this purpose will be used in obtaining the 501c3 status.
