On a lonely stretch of highway just outside of Groom, Texas (near Pampa) stands a 19 story tall cross that can be seen for miles from any direction. The arm spans are 110 feet across. It is constructed of a welded steel framework covered with steel sheeting.

This cross is the result of the efforts of Steve Thomas and family of Pampa, Texas. It took 250 welders eight months to complete, and weighs 1,250 tons. It stands alone, unsupported by guy wires, and can withstand winds of 140 miles per hour.

The cross is truly an awesome sight to behold. It is a dedication to the love and sacrifice of Jesus.

It is a spectacular sight at night, and is open for viewing 24 hours per day, seven days a week,and the site is truck and RV accessible. It is anticipated that 10 million people a year will pass by the cross and a thousand a day will stop.

On a small hill facing the cross there are three bronze cross statues depicting the crucifixion of Jesus between two thieves. The base of the cross is surrounded by life-sized bronze statues of Jesus depicting twelve stations of Jesus carrying the cross to Calvary.

Video : California Proposition 8 ; Vote ‘YES’

Proposition 8 will appear on the November 2008 ballot in California. It is variously known as the Protect Marriage Act, the Same-Sex Marriage Ban or the Limit on Marriage Amendment. If it passes, it will add a new constitutional amendment to the California Constitution that will have the following text: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” The ballot title for the measure says that Prop. 8 “eliminates the right of same-sex couples to marry”.

The electoral contest over Prop. 8 has attracted both national attention and dollars. By mid-August, supporters of Prop. 8 had raised about $8.4 million, while its opponents had raised $8.5 million. Money is not expected to be short on either side as the campaigns gear up for the fall battle, with consultants saying they expect about $30 million to be spent altogether. The initiative has attracted national dollars from both sides, with opponents raising 44% of their money from out-of-state donors, with supporters raising 34% of theirs from out-of-state.

According to its supporters, the Protect Marriage Amendment strengthens the process started when Proposition 22 passed with 61% of the vote in 2000, because, they believe, it is less susceptible to a legal challenge. This goal took on added weight when the California Supreme Court invalidated Prop 22 on May 15, 2008.

Hey, come on Californians…Are You people forgetting what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah, mentioned clearly in the Bible? If no, then there is no confusion. Vote ‘YES’ on prop 8. The above video will help you in making a right decision. Check it out…

Children International Sponsorship Program

We children need your help

There are thousands of very poor children who are waiting for someone to give them a hand up.someone like you.

Sponsorship changes children’s lives.and might even change yours too.

Since 1936, Children International has worked tirelessly to ease the burdens poverty places upon poor children. Today, our most urgent effort is to fight poverty by connecting sponsors with children around the world.

Right now, impoverished children all over the world suffer in silence. Born into poverty, often to parents struggling to survive on just pennies a day, these poor children often live without access to medical care, a good education, adequate housing, decent clothing or a chance for a better future.

But there is hope – if you sponsor one of these poor children through Children International.

The Children International® Sponsorship Program is helping impoverished children by providing meaningful benefits and services that help them grow up confident, healthy and educated.
Through our affordable, monthly giving program, sponsored children receive the right help at the right time, including:

* Health care and medicine
* Dental care
* Malnutrition screenings and nutritional support
* Sturdy clothing and shoes
* School supplies and improved access to education
* Encouragement and hope

Sponsors get much in return. Regular letters and photos from sponsored children help them see how their donations change lives. And sponsorship gives sponsors a tremendous sense of satisfaction and a feeling of accomplishment…all through helping a needy child have a better life.

You can sponsor a child today and assist us in reaching a common goal: making the world a better place by helping impoverished children grow into responsible, healthy, educated and self-reliant adults.
