Thank you for this wonderful blessing.


THANK YOU FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE.. MAY GOD BLESS YOU... WE VISITED THE CROSS LAST WEEK .....THANK YOU


A friend told us about this website. It is absolutely awesome! We definitely plan to make a visit to see this for ourselves. Thank you!


while on our vacation we came across the cross and we will never forget the peace and happiness that came upon us , knowing that as big as this world is ,we are never alone.

rick casas and family. p.s thank you....


I departed CA in Sept. 2002 on a tour of the U.S. I traveled 8,000 miles and took in 24 states in 30 days. We have a beautiful nation but the cross was a highlight of the trip and touched my spirit in a manner that defies description. This memorial is definitely on "holy ground". I was blessed to meet the man and his wife who had the vision for this project. They are very humble. This is a wonderful ministry to all of us. If you have seen the site you know what I mean. If you haven't seen it yet it is worth traveling any distance to see it.

Thank you all for your obedience to our Lord.


I Was told about the Cross by a friend that I walk with at the local park in Houston, TX. I plan to visit the cross one day soon. God Bless all involved in the construction. Kim L. Carter Houston, TX


I am a long haul truck driver and I have been there several times now. And each time is a more moving than the last. My husband who is a non believer was even moved. I got there for spiritual uplifting and it helps me through rough times. I got weather it is day or night, or sunny or raining or snowing. When ever I got by I need the lift I go. The Lord with provide. I am so thankful for this place. God Bless the builders and the creatures. Thank you and God Bless, The Rigdon Family-Machine Gun, Dutchess and Brutice 

My husband and I was driving back home to Mississippi from California. We had been on vacation for 15 days. We seen the cross from VERY far away and had to see it up close. We have taken pictures of the whole thing and we are going to share them with our church. Hopefully we can get the church to plan a trip to come up and see it for themselves. That will be a great trip for all and a blessing. Thank you to the ones who have taken the time to build and maintain this great blessing for everyone who comes to see it.


Seem like the closest place to heaven on earth is here in Groom Texas.


Beautiful and inspiring!


This is an awesome work!!


I have been told about the Cross, and I have seen pitchers of it, and my prayer is that the seeing of this Cross will help people to understand the true meaning of the Cross, and to value it's meaning. Thanks to all that had a part in making of this CROSS. Thank You and God Bless. James Ratliff


Thanks for the wonderful reminder to all who see it. Nancy - Wisconsin


This is a beautiful cross and it reaches out to you. Thank you for sharing this with everyone.....


This is my first time to see this and it is so pretty. I just lost my best friend and this help me so think you for putting this on the web site. hope you will do more so I thank you so much. thanks miss Vickie


We were on a difficult journey and at 3:00 in the morning we saw the cross in the distance. As we drove past the cross my husband and I cried, as we felt the cross was put in our path by the Lord to give us strength, guidance, and assurance that our journey was the correct answer to our family crisis. When we returned home the next day we were able to stop at the cross and give thanks for all of the blessings the Lord provides, including the blessing of this wonderful cross. Thank you.


I just visited the site in person this past week, and it was awesome. Living in Amarillo, I have driven past probably a 100 times and watched the construction from the beginning, however; nothing can compare to standing at the base of the cross and seeing the magnitude, and massiveness of it. Taking the walk along the stations, walking up the steps of Calvary, enter the tomb, it is a must visit for all Christians and non-Christians alike. The most impressive station, except for the cross itself is the tribute to the unborn. As a Christian one cannot visit without getting the lump in the throat, the tug at the heart, yet also feel the joy, knowing of the resurrection.....I will return, next time in the hours of darkness, and will anxiously be awaiting the completion of areas still under construction...


As a truck driver I have been viewing the cross from the highway for a long time. Even when my husband is driving I always seem to wake up in time to view the cross...but finally today I stopped and took pictures of all the stations, and the awesome statues of the representation, of what Christ endured for us, the lowly sinner...And most inspiring is standing below the enormous cross puts one thing to mind....When all of your burdens are laid at the cross of Jesus....they become overpowered by its presence, they become small, as I was underneath its grandeur. Deb Hays


I was there to see your cross one cold rainy morning about a month ago. I wanted to linger for a long time just in this awesome surrounding, but it was too cold. This cross is something that should draw all believer's & non-believer's near. This is too much to explain in words. You just have to see it to experience what it you feel! May God bless the man who did this work, the one who donated the land, & all who have worked on it & are giving of their time to keeping it beautiful. In Christ Love, Linda Weakley


we visited there about three times.. we will go again.. god bless you all..

winona and bill from Dayton TX we always go traveling for our working..


We came upon this beautiful shrine quite by surprise last summer during our travels. We have been to shrines all over the world and this is one of the loveliest. We were happily surprised. Such a memorable thing to be driving along and find such an oasis of peace. Elaine Thomas Syracuse

just browsing the internet and happen to run across this at my husband's request said he say this in person. just awesome, that is all I can say , would love to see this in person one day.


It is a beautiful retreat. Fran Marsom


I'm so glad we took the opportunity to stop. We could just as easily driven on by. It was such a blessing that we didn't. The Cross is wonderful. I'll definitely recommend it to anyone who is traveling that way.


I used to be a truck driver with my ex-husband back in the early 90s. I remember every time we passed the cross I felt a spiritual lifting.


I finally stopped by after Thanksgiving this year. My husband, 9 1/2 yr. old daughter and I traveled to Amarillo for the Thanksgiving holidays. We passed the cross on Wed. going and I felt so thankful for Jesus and the cross. I promised my daughter that we would stop on the way back home to Arkansas. As we loaded up to travel home my daughter asked "We are going to stop at the cross aren't we"? I replied "Oh, yes". On Sunday when we stopped my daughter (who goes to a Christian Academy School) was so amazed at everything we saw. She went around all the stations taking pictures. The stations are awesome! When I walked up the steps of Calvary I felt the Holy Spirit and went down on my knees at the foot of Jesus on the Cross and prayed thanking God for Jesus dying on the Cross so that we may have eternal life. I was able to get a great sunset picture with the three crosses. I had never seen the shroud before and we were so amazed. I overheard another visitor telling some of the story about the shroud which was very interesting.


I thank everyone who had the vision to put together this Sacred Holy Ground. I will look forward to stopping in the future to see what else is added.

God Bless, in Christ's Love, Karen Mumau, Nashville, Arkansas


My husband and I saw the cross 4 or 5 years ago. It was awesome then, and I anxiously await our next trip west so we can stop again. Carol, Arkansas


My husband and I visited the cross before we gave up driving long haul in 1998. We watched it go up as we drove long haul for several years and I-40 was one of the main routes we traveled. I was impressed with it and have never forgotten it. We had friends here this last week from Arizona and they were traveling home I-40 so I told them to make sure they stopped. She just sent me your website. Thank you and God bless you.


these pictures are up-lifting and make me proud to call myself a Christian. I hope one day when I start a family I can take my children to see it in person and hope it has a great affect on their life as the picture did for me. 17, tara little Tennessee


Hi.. we stopped at the cross on our way home after the Thanksgiving holiday.. it really made an impact on us we are church members at the Licking Church of Christ. in Missouri. but seeing something like this really brought it to reality I think everyone should see it and experience it! We have told everyone about it and are giving them the e-mail address.. This is a blessing to all. The Gibson family.


me and my parents stopped at the cross on 01-02-03 on our way back from Mississippi we saw the cross from the road and turned around it was really neat thanxs.brittney


We stopped by Friday, Jan. 3 and were so impressed by the Cross and the rest of the setting. It was a totally spiritual experience which we followed up with a visit to St. Gregory's University in Shawnee.

We took photos of the Stations and will share them with our friends.


We had driven by the Cross on previous trips, but never took time to stop until our recent trip a couple of weeks ago. We are so glad we stopped and we learned so much about the Cross that we did not realize. Of course, I had to visit the website when we returned home. It was a cold, snowy day when we stopped. We look forward to stopping again in the near future and see the completion of the additions that are currently underway. I recommend to anyone driving by . . no matter how a big a hurry you think you are in . . . take time to stop and visit this site up close. I am sure you will be touched in some way you least expect. God Bless . . . .


I learned of this Cross from a friend. I am most interested in visiting some day. May God Bless all of mankind! J. Sherman


I saw this stunning site as I was driving back from the east coast in the summer of 2001. It is truly an inspiring site to see from afar and then to drive so close. God is great! trvlnmn/az


with out the cross , and Christ dying on it , shedding his blood , for our sins, we would not have a chance for heaven>>>>>>>>>>>>>


Praise God for this beautiful place and for your ministry. I was traveling across country this week with friends when we happened to see the cross way down the freeway and just had to stop. I am so thankful that we did, but then am also sorry that I we couldn't stay longer. I am passing your web site on to many others. May God continue to bless you in your work at the cross and with your ministry. -- LINDA


it was very beautiful and I would like to go again and take my family

RODRIQUEZ AND VENEGAS FAMILY


could see this magnificent sight for miles when my trucker husband and I were returning from Colorado. was drawn to it, it was still in the building stages, not all of the stations were built. this must have been in 1999. always stayed on my mind. when I found my sister and her husband were heading to col. told them they had to stop and see it. she just called and told me they had stopped, and that how it was a sight to behold. she took videos, can't wait to see it. hope to make a trip back soon. may god bless and keep all the workers save and in god's hands. diana and jay rayne, la.


Hi I am very honored to visit your web site. I think it wonderful that your statues depict the life of Christ. I think a lot of the schools should visit the website. They could find a way to teach the things that matter in life and death. Maybe we wouldn't have so many kids on drugs if they only knew what Jesus did for them. I am a retired teacher myself. I now work at my church with the youth. I is all in our youth. If we don't reach them when they are young we will completely loose them. With my experiences while teaching, the parents around here are not doing such a good job.


I downloaded the stations of the cross and awesome views and showed them to my husband and three teenagers during our evening family worship. They were impressed and we enjoyed discussing the wonderful blessings from our Lord Jesus. Thank you for this blessing. We were really touched by God's spirit. Continue on with your ministry! - The Ramos Family


I visited the Cross in December 2002 and was truly amazed at the entire site. It was truly a day to remember, and I pray for blessings over all those involved in the implementation and process of bringing all this to pass. God Bless.

Karen Kennedy, Colorado Springs


God Bless you all, I spent the night there last night God Bless the people that hear God, God wants us to Look at where this Cross was Built he is are Groom and all that come to know God through Jesus and His Love he has for us all not just one race of People but all People on Earth. God has a Awesome Love for us all that he gave his only begotten son so we all can be saved through him and it's the Grace God gives to all People if they want Jesus to Live with in them which is his Spirit. He wants to Renew the Spirit in us and wants to be a Big part of our Lives here as he once was when he made Adman and Eve. Please give your Life over to him that would be the best thing you could ever do for your self and No body can do it for you God Bless to all His People May his Peace and His Love be with you always.


May his Peace and His Love be with all that come and set a Spell at the Cross and view each place on this Holy Ground Just as it was one Man's dream Jesus to come and save the World it's another man that heard God in building this in Groom Texas. Do you really Know God and his Love he has for you he wants to give you a Gift that is his Son Jesus. Let Jesus' Love shine with in you and let it shine out of you on to some one that Needs Jesus in there Hearts. Apache777 Tulsa Oklahoma


We wept in awe the first time we saw The Cross that fateful night. We wept when we visited THE CROSS that beautiful fall day. The Cross was silhouetted against storm clouds in the North Texas sky. To say our visitation changed our lives is an understatement. It gave purpose, and a goal that literally transformed who we were and why we were here. God bless you Mr. Thomas . You will not know the true worth of this undertaking, till you walk the streets of Heaven and hear the stories of those who would never have made it there, without The Cross being built. On our visit Arnie and your precious sister were so kind and helpful. Words fail when I attempt to thank you. God bless you and your family. In Christ, Jim and Lura Jones, Mobile, Alabama trublvr2002@yahoo.com


I WAS THERE IN 2000 IT WAS SO AWESOME PEOPLE I HAVE TOLD ABOUT IT WOULD ALSO LIKE SOME POST CARDS--I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT A LOT--IF YOU COULD SEND ME A CATALOG I WOULD APPRECIATE IT--WE HOPE TO COME THROUGH THERE AGAIN IN OCT. THIS YEAR--IN CHRISTIAN LOVE MARY ANN BRAVO-3068 FIVE IRON DR. PORT ST. LUCIE FLORIDA 34952 AGAIN THANK YOU FOR YOUR AWESOME DELICLARATION FOR JESUS LOVE FOR US-- HOW OR WHERE COULD I GET A LARGE CROSS FOR THE CORNERSTONE OF MY HOUSE??


I used to live in Pampa, and I had always heard how beautiful it was. I never made time to go and one day I ended up moving to Dallas, TX. One weekend in Feb. 2003, my boyfriend, my 9 month old baby girl and I decided to visit my parents in Pampa and my sister in Amarillo, then when we were heading home, we happen to pass by the cross. I told my boyfriend, "I always wanted to go there and never did." As we were passing by it, he started to exit, and I started getting all excited because I was finally going there. I couldn't believe how wonderful they did inn building it. We loved it. We took pictures and walked around admiring it. We plan to one day take our little girl there again when she is older. It is beautiful! Thank you and god bless all of you. (Veronica, Ariana, & Travis)tarango831@yahoo.com


Awesome! What a wonderful sign to the world to return to Jesus Christ and repent! A constant reminder to all...the Love of our Lord Jesus Christ for all HIS children in displayed by this sign of the Cross and a constant reminder...Keep up the wonderful good works, the spirit, and energy for this beautiful tribute to OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST... With our love and prayers and full support,Albie and Joe

God Bless To All Johnny and Marie Seay Teaticket,Mass-02536


My wife and I have been at the cross 4 different times now and expect to be there many times. We first seen it in a semi crossing the country and now when we go on our vacations out west each year . It has taken a new shape each time we stop .The cross is a very moving experience, especially when you can see it so far away from both east and west. Thank you very much we appreciate what this does to help out our lives and others also. Ken and Mary Lou Ray Mt Pleasant, Mi.


I have had the chance to experience the awesome feeling of the lord .I thank GOD for people and places like this. I can only pray that it reaches and touches people like it touched me. it was truly an awesome awesome feeling. my thoughts and prayers always. a sister in CHRIST shannon goodwin


I am planning a 90 foot cross on my property in Post Falls, Id.


It was very beautiful, we saw it in Feb. on our way to Oklahoma. Thank you for a very moving experience. The Wegener Family


My husband and I took our two little kids. We enjoyed it very much, because it is really beautiful! And we will come back again and bring our relatives.


We saw the cross on a trip from IL to AZ. Are you aware that there is a taller cross near Effingham IL? Is it by the same organization?


A couple from Stuart, Nebraska, Doug and Clara Grieser stopped in to visit the cross recently and gave me the info sheet and picture.

What a wonderful project. No doubt it will bring many people to a closer relationship to Christ's suffering on the cross.

May God Bless you in your promotions

Msgr. Francis E. Kubart, Omaha, Ne


It is an amazing awe that overcomes one at this site. I cannot explain what overcame me. It is beautiful. Thank-You so much for this experience. I do believe something changed within me while being there. I truly believe something amazing happened to me while there March 9, 2003 God Bless... and take care. Show your love to those you cherish so dear.


I drove by on my way to California last week. What an awesome site to see as you drive down the road. I was going on a retreat @ Jumonville, Pa on Friday as I was driving to California I need to keep my mine on the people I was going to help there. Your cross reminded my of the cross @ Jumonville ( it is the same type & size but a different design). Seeing your cross kept me in the right state of mine during my trip. Thank you for being the helping hand I needed on my trip.

Also, I saw the style cross in Illinois, do you know if they have a web site or an address so I could visit then also.

Enough EVAD


My husband and I found this site on our way East on Highway 40 between Albuquerque and Amarillo. We were so impressed. What a beautiful place. I cried at the shrine to the pre-born. Wonderful shrine. One of the best we have seen in this country.


I WAS TOLD ABOUT THE CROSS BY A FRIEND HOPEFULLY I CAN VISIT IT ONE DAY SOON GOD BLESS ALEXANDER FIELDS MEMPHIS TN.


I was so happy to see this sight it is kind of a memorial for my family as my uncle was one of the crane operators who helped raise this glorious cross. In memory of Leo Bodensteiner.

That is amazing, and very beautiful. Shawna Doyle


Thank you so much for the carrying out the vision God has given you!! MILLIONS of people from all over the world will know of the love of Jesus through this beautiful place! May believers and unbelievers alike know the LOVE of Jesus through what you guys are doing!

What a breath taking site.Mrs.Julee Sandgren


This is a great way to show everyone that there is someone who cares all of the time!

I REALLY ENJOYED THIS SITE. THANK YOU NADINE THOMPSON denasdaycare@yahoo.com


Wow!!! That is amazing. What a great testament for Christ. Your sister in Christ, Randi Rowan


We visited the cross last Saturday and I can't tell you what it meant to me. You can't truly imagine what Jesus went through until you visit each station. Thank you for this wonderful sight.


Connie Lamb, Grants NM Can't wait to see it in person.


What a beautiful, inspirational piece of work. If someone driving down the road doesn't get a blessing from this, then they should stop and kneel at the foot and ask for GOD'S forgiveness. Carol (Tennessee)


The cross is just beautiful...I will send this link to all my family and friends. I am a native Texan and live in Ohio now. We will be going home in May. I would love to take a trip to see this beautiful creation. God Bless all who were involved in building this cross. Sue Reckner


Great, just great. Our loss of faith and the removal of "God" from our lives and the courts ruling have left many people with a helpless feeling. Through prayer and the vote we can change our lives. Keep up the good work.


I wish to see this in person. I thank God for people who can do such great work. It is so beautiful.


this is wonderful, my family and I are going to have to go see it in person. Great Job!!!


This was a wonderful picture. I would love to see it in person.


A staff member of our local newspaper visited the cross and mentioned its beauty and web sight. He was right! Thank God for His unspeakable Gift! Thank you.


Absolutely beautiful!!!! We are from a small town down next Myrtle Beach, S.C., called Conway, S.C.. Someday, my husband and myself dream of being able to go to your beautiful state and visit. I received this website from a friend who lives in Oklahoma. Then we can see it for all its beauty and the beauty of the reason behind it. . Sarah Boyd & Rev. Davis Boyd/ Pastor, New Life Worship Center, Conway, S.C. 4439 Hwy. 319 E. Conway, S.C. 29526


Never have I felt closer to the Lord than this day. I have only viewed the pictures and I can imagine what awe I would feel if standing in person in front of this Great Cross and looking at the Shroud of Turin and seeing my Savior's face in it. May God bless all those who have worked on this magnificent work of art for the Lord and all those who view it in pictures or in person. Carol 'Song of Joy'


it is a very pretty sculpture. may everyone who passes by, feel the love of God.

I LOVE THIS SITE MARY ANN MARY82542@AOL.COM

God bless the Cross, the Groom Tigers, Zach Thomas and his dad, and the Texas Tech Red Raiders!


Your web site is wonderful and I wanted to let you know what a truly beautiful and awe inspiring place the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ is. We were fortunate to have the privilege of stopping at the Cross, on our way through Texas. My Sister, Husband, and myself left there feeling humbled and thanking Our Lord for what He has done for us. We are praying that we can have the opportunity to return there someday to see the finished site. We also want to thank the staff that was working that day for making our visit extra special – I am sorry I can’t remember all of their names, only Mary. Thank you for making our trip extra special and for the precious gift that we received when we visited the Cross. Our prayers are with you all. God bless you and have a Blessed Easter. Mimi, Raymond, and Dorothy – from Pennsylvania


Friends of mine that use to live in Texas told me about the Cross. I plan to visit this summer. There is only one word that comes to mind when I look at the Cross. AWESOME. Thank you and God bless you for this wonderful work.


I went to groom today and saw this what a wonder! I feel so much closer to God and I am so grateful to him for all he went through to save me. Thank you for reminding me just how loved we all are. C

My roommate was just there visiting for the first time and he just called me up from Texas, telling me how wonderful and refreshed he felt after visiting. He told me to check out the website, and after seeing that huge cross, I can just imagine how it would feel top be standing side by side from it....I can't wait to go see it in person!!!!! Jamie Rock Rochester, NY


I just got back from a cross country trip & saw the cross, the first time I saw the cross was on my way out west in the evening & it was lit up, I wanted to get a picture but had no film at the time so on my way back to the east coast I stopped to check it out & words cant describe the feeling I had when I saw all that was their, it was just so awesome. PRAISE JESUS OUR LORD!!! Joe Battaglia......Rochester N.Y.


We spotted the 'cross` 3 years ago on our way to Arkansas to visit our daughter. We stopped for a while and looking up at the 'cross' in complete awe we couldn't believe the size of this huge 'cross`. I look forward to visiting each time we are on trips to Ark. and home(Calif), It gives us a special lift each time we stop. Thank you so very much.

Rodney & Anita Recek 10300 S. Kings River Rd.#175 Reedley,Calif 93654


Oh what good and wonderful people you are to put this on the internet for all of us. This is so needed today when there are people passing laws to prohibit prayers and the word, God in public places and our schools. It makes me wonder what is happening to our wonderful land of America. My husband and I first saw The Cross in 1996 on our way to Arizona. He had retired and we were driving out west for 2 months. We stopped at The Cross on our return trip home. We were both moved by the warmth and peace it gave us. We continued to stop every year on the way home, it was the highlight of our return trip. My husband died in 2000 and now I stop on my way home. Thank you for this blessing and may God bless you. Pat Finkler


My mom and I have been to this Cross twice and it is the most awesome site to behold. Thank you for building this Cross.


this is a wonderful site. only a Christian would appreciate the true beauty of this picture.


I've seen the cross while traveling through the area both in daytime and also at night and what a beautiful and calming sight to behold. I was so uplifted and made so aware of the greatest and most perfect love, that of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. What a wonderful testament of His love. I just know that this is a wonderful blessing for our little ones, that they might be born and live safely for they are so loved. Just as God blessed Abram in Genesis 12:2 I feel that God has also chosen you and your wonderful family to do His work and His words "I will bless thee..... and thou shalt be a blessing" are so true for you and your family. Because He has blessed you, untold thousands receive a blessing when they pass along the way see these wonderful and creative depictions of His love built by you and your family. Thank you! Penny from Louisiana


Beautiful website!


The Cross was the most beautiful place I have seen in day's. It was in a time of need that I stopped to see it and was blessed when I left. Thank you so much !!!!!


awesome! I just recently became aware of the Cross at Groom, Texas's existence through the April 2003 devotional, 'Our Daily Bread'. My only question: When was this cross erected? I find no timeline information on site.

Thank you! Praise The Lord!


God Bless and never let the fears the devils instill keep us from praising God and his son Jesus.


On a recent trip to Amarillo, we visited Palo Duro Canyon and the Cross. The creation of both have God's hand in them. The world is in debt to those responsible for this beautiful, awesome cross. It is a wonderful reminder of the price Christ paid for our salvation and of His love for all mankind. Many Thanks! John & Jo Ann Durst--Bonham, Rayville, Vicksburg.


My husband is a truck driver. He drove by your statues today and was absolutely amazed at what he saw. He couldn't wait to call me and tell me. He gave me your website address so I could see the Cross. It is awesome! Thank you so much and may God bless you. Margaret Hill, Huntsville, Alabama


HELLO!! I AM FROM MO. I WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL PLACE, IF IT NOT FOR MY FRIEND & HER HUSBAND COMING HOME FROM A RUN TO CALIFORNIA. SHE CALLED ME LONG DISTANCE JUST TO GIVE ME YOU WEB-SITE & TO TELL ME HOW BREATH-TAKING IT WAS. I HOPE TO GET TO SEE IT SOMEDAY, THE W-SITE MADE MY HEART FLUTTER WITH JOY!!! JESUS OUR LORD, CERTAINLY MUST BE PROUD!! GREAT JOB!!

A.L.


This is wonderful, Every one should really appreciate what it all stands for. Praise the LORD!!! Mary Clonce


On our way back to Kansas from New Mexico we stopped and visited the cross. It was AWESOME and we can't wait to visit again!!


I visited the Cross last week. It was an awesome experience. I could feel God's presence. Thank you for this wonderful place where people can stop along life's highway and be blessed. God bless you in your ministry. Linda Abilene, Tx.


I am an old friend of Dave Wegener, and am trying to find out how to contact him. If anybody has his contact information, will you please ask him to contact Cliff, from his early days when we met upstairs in the bank in Tustin @ oregonrr@yahoo.com.

Thank you.


I visited your beautiful place last year and I still feel the wonderful peace that is there. I hope to visit again. Betty Pool from Midland tx


well, my name is shawn graves and I became a Christian on march 31 1998.Prior to that day I was a gang member the national enforcer for a motorcycle gang. and a atheist. but now I am a CHRISTIAN and what a great life it is now. Seeing that cross was wonderful it brought tears to my eyes. You people are a blessing from god to show everyone who drives by that CHRIST is real and what he gave up and went thru for us. If we would all just think as if JESUS was our own child and going thru what he did maybe more of us would live the way CHRIST wants us to.thankyou again love in JESUS name, ShawnGraves 29Morgan St.Mooresville,In.46158


Thank you for showing the world God's love and that he is really alive in Texas. I am a transplanted Texan now living in Arizona. I truly miss the bible belt.....May our good Lord bless you and every worker that helped do God's work. Davonna


PLEASE remove the music from your Web site or at least provide a way for me to turn it off. It interferes with what I'm already listening to and doesn't add anything to the information the site provides.


You have done a beautiful thing may god bless you


I was there in March of 2002. Was the most awe inspiring site I have ever visited. Plans are to be there during first 2 weeks of June. Keep the great work up. Mr & Mrs Bobby Markham Culleoka, Tn.


It was amazing. It looked like it went to the clouds. I will always remember that all my life. Your friend Quade Brewer age 10.


I was born and raised in Pampa and now live in Oregon and occasionally get to return to Texas for a visit. The next time I come, I will be sure to make a trip to Groom, to see the cross, in person. This is a wonderful thing and in these times of terror and wars, we need to be bring ourselves closer to the Lord. It seems that God is being eliminated from so many things, particularly our schools. Our children need to hear the word of God and be able to sing his praises. This site is wonderful and you will surely be rewarded for your labors !


My mom just came back from out west this is one of the places that she visited. She was very impressed and from what I have seen on your web page I am sure it is fantastic. Hopefully someday I may have the same chance that my 86 year old mom had to see this wonder.


Going to the cross is the best feeling, thanks so much!

Tammy Joplin


What a wonderful and inspiring site. God Bless You!


This Is A Great Web-Site. It Will Bless All That See It. Thanks For A Loving God. Hope Some Day To Make A Trip Back To See It Again. RSA Virginia

THE CROSS IS BEAUTIFUL, I LIVE IN VIRGINIA, AND MY COUSIN VISITED MEXICO AND SAW IT WHEN SHE DROVE BY. IT'S SO GOOD TO HEAR GODS WORKS SPREAD ALL OUT THE STATES. MELISSA REYNOLDS ROWE, VA 24646


Hello. My nephew Billy and his girlfriend Alma visited this cross in Texas. They sent me pictures through e-mail. I was very impressed with the beautiful sight of the cross. I hope that one day I will make a trip up to Texas and see it in real life. Mildred Salyer - Richmond VA 23237


This picture of the cross is really neat and maybe it will be touching to someone who needs the Lord in their life.


My family and I visited the cross in Groom, TX on our vacation in 2002. It was truly an unforgettable site. I would impress to any one to visit the cross, you will never forget it. Since our visit I've now discovered the website and found that so many new things have been added and I can't wait till we can go back. Thanks for your hard work and dedication to this wonderful cause. email: jake@usajake.com


My husband and I decided to take a road trip w/my mother to Amarillo to visit family....while we were there we were told about this cross...we didn't think much of it till we actually saw it as we were headed up I-40...It truly was amazing...we hope to go back some day to see it completed. I know there are many crowns in heaven for all that were involved in the making of such a beautiful & spiritual place God Bless You All, Theresa & John Morin Theresa_Morin@yahoo.com


may the lord bless all the hard workers whom have been sent from God to build this blessed piece of his creation, this will bring so many lost souls, speaking of myself and all of God's children to him again, thank you for this and god bless you!


I am A member of the Church of Christ in parker Colorado and have visited the site in Groom, Texas on 2 different occasions. I find it to be a very Marvelous site and have recommended my Church friends and fellow workers to see it and experience the site when they are passing that way. I find it to be a wonderful way to remind folks who Jesus is and what he did for each of us .


We were blessed to see this wonderful Cross this summer. We were traveling from New Mexico and there it was looming ahead of us. We made pictures from our car and placed them in our vacation album. Beside the pictures we wrote that God is Love and He is everywhere and if anyone wonders about God's bountiful Love they have but to see this beautiful Cross. We had no idea where the Cross was located and in Our Daily Bread there was an devotional about it and told us of its location. I immediately went to the internet and found it and am now sharing the information with everyone.

God is Love and I thank Him for all He does for us and the privilege of being able to see this Cross and having the wonderful pictures.

Thank you building the Cross and believe me no one can pass it by and wonder if there is a God. He Lives and that is for sure.

God Bless.

Always,

Bill & Bonnye McKinney 2771 Austin Road Jena, LA 71342


As a trucker, my fellowship with God is sometimes challenging. Each time I pass by this most beautiful site, tears well in my eyes and I am again reminded of the Comforter being ever-present in our lives. God bless all who have made this monument possible....


I had wanted to stop at The Cross on several occasions passing through, but on our return trip from my youngest daughters memorial services we made the time. As Breathtaking as it is from driving by it on I-40 it is even more Breathtaking to visit and see all the stations and think of the Sacrifice that God made for each and every one of us that will allow Him into our hearts and lives. The Cross is such a Blessing for all to see. This is a Great Ministry.

SMW of NM


A friend sent this to me via e-mail. I think it's really awesome and a beautiful piece of work. God is so good! A user in Bakersfield CA


May God Bless all whose hard work has created a Blessing in our lives. Yes, God Lives and May all who look upon this Cross be reminded of HIS LOVE.

M & D Keel, Washington,


Kentucky folks thank you for this true blessing, it was a site to behold


very good, It is a real blessing. may God truly bless you for making such a big testimony for Jesus at this special time. For He is coming sooner than any of us truly believe. May be this will open some unbelievers eyes the Jesus Christ truly did live and did die for all of us so we might be saved. Donna McNary Bakersfield Ca 93380-0934


This is uplifting spiritual. And I Love it. Keep it coming. Thank you sincerely Katie Hatfield


the cross and other features are so beautiful I like it so much


The cross and other stuff are so beautiful. I like it so much !!!!!!!!


Great! Wonderful! I came by and visited the site. It was very inspiring. Floyd and Grace Bradford. Falkville Al.


It's wonderful! We love Jesus.

The Hughett family


god bless you and please keep this beautiful treasure up. Please do not destroy it thank you


that's a pretty cross, and this website is awesome specially the music.


I Loved the Cross it stands tall for all to see. I live in Illinois, we have one here also, I don't know if it's as big, but it look's the same, and at night it is lit up so you can see it in the dark too. It's on #57 left side if your headed south some where before the St louis exit.


we recently stopped to see your display. it is unforgettable. it was amazing to see such a thing in the middle of the long boring drive thru the pan-handle. my faith was re-newed after viewing the stations. as a catholic I have attended the stations of the cross at least once a year, but never before have they been so real. sincerely roberta poss garnett,kansas.


I was traveling with my family to California from Oklahoma, and we drove through Pampa where my aunt told me that we just HAD to stop to see this cross. I had no clue what she was talking about, until we drove by it. I had to stop. I got a pamphlet and a card from the place at the entrance (the little pink cards), and decided to come to the website. This is a great thing for everyone to see, I mean, if you believe or not, you still need to see it. Thank you.


I HAVE BEEN TO THE CROSS SEVERAL TIMES ON MY WAY TO MY FAMILY REUNION ON OKLAHOMA. I STOP FOR MEDITATION AND TO SEE THE DIFFERENT SCENES THAT HAVE BEEN COMPLETED. THIS IS TRULY A BLESSING AND A MIRACLE HERE ON EARTH.


As an o.t.r, truck driver I stopped by every time I could. I drive local now and hope to visit again. It was always a blessing as was talking with Jim at Blessed Marys resturant.Thank you and God Bless


this is awesome......


Perhaps one day I will be privileged to see this wondrous sight in person. Thank you for the tour.

Wanda McClung Hastings, OK


Two Weeks ago, we stopped and saw what you have done, it is breathtaking, and anyone that sees this display of our Lord's crucifixion and reads the scriptures and doesn't confess JESUS as Lord, will not have an excuse at the judgment. May God richly bless your ministry.


hi, a couple days ago I was in Texas and I had a chance to see these crosses. I was really surprised to see how tall they were. ahh they were cool. -.-


We visited your Cross this week and we were inspired by it so much. Thank you for your ministry and believe me we were so touched. It gave our children a new thing to think about as the figures were so expressionable. The people sitting in the booth were so nice as well. God Bless. The Lee Williams Family.


This was worth the side trip from Amarillo to Ft. Worth. What an awe inspiring place to remember our Lord. Thank you so much for doing this.

Wanda Scarborough


I loved the web site and now can't wait to go see it in real life. Hopefully you will receive a lot of donations so you can build it up the way you want to.


My Aunt told me about this ministry and I just had to search for the website. She has been to the cross but does not have a computer. I fully intend to make a trip to see it in person soon. It is an awesome ministry. Thank GOD for the work that you are doing. May GOD bless and keep you, as I know HE will for all the work you are doing for HIM. "IT IS SO AWESOME" Your Brother in CHRIST Tom King


This is a most awesome web site. Thank You for the opportunity to visit it. I will visit Groom, TX soon.

Thanks Sherri King Celeste, TX


I visited the site yesterday early evening and was so caught up in the presentation that I had tears - I was especially pleased with the accuracy of where the nails were placed. I will share this site with my church members and hope they will be as inspired as I was. I signed the book yesterday but am happy to be able to add my feelings about this beautiful cross.

Shirley Holland, Church of Christ, Bellflower, CA


I was there a few weeks ago on my way to be with my brother in Arkansas before he had an emergency open heart surgery. As we were traveling I was trying to pray for my brothers surgery and was consumed with worry and fatigue so much that I couldn't concentrate. I was becoming frustrated when I looked up to see a bright shining light into the Heavens and then I saw your Beautiful Giant Cross. We were in a hurry to make it to my brothers side before the surgery so, we did not stop, and I prayed...... "okay, God, even though I couldn't concentrate on talking with you, you reached out of no where on a dark secluded highway to let me know you are there, I prayed for peace and my brothers health and our safety traveling and I promised myself we would stop back by there on the way home to California. So we did, a week and a half later. What a wonderful thing you have done there......I imagine their are thousands of stories just like mine. Thank you for letting God use you as his lamp unto the world. While I was in your gift shop, you said you would be putting out a 2004 calendar and I would love to order one, but don't see it on your order form. Please send me information on how I might get one. I also think it would be nice to have a 2003 to send to my brother along with the story of what a miracle God sent to me, through "The Cross" on our travels to see him before his heart surgery, If you still have any 2003 calendars available please let me know. Thank you again for your service to this mission. God Bless you and yours.

Janice Thomason


I got to visit the site on our way back from AZ. I was amazed at the peacefulness of atmosphere and the breeze that seemed to be pushing me towards things that made me reflect on the positive things of life.


May God Bless your organization for this beautiful depiction of the Cross. I plan on returning soon. W.R.Branscum.


My husband and I visited the cross on July 15, 2003 on our way home to Indiana. Just a wonderful, peaceful place. We plan on visiting the cross every year on our cross country travel. Thank you


I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT YOUR CROSSES. THE PICTURES ARE VERY INSPIRING AND COMFORTING. MY WISH IS THAT ALL PEOPLE OF MANY NATIONS COULD SEE THIS IN PERSON. I KNOW THAT WAR WOULD CEASE TO EXIST FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS HOPE. MAY GOD BLESS THIS SITE FOR ALL CENTURIES TO COME. MARGIE


We stopped here on the way home from Albuquerque. I was in a state of awe. Walking through gave me goose bumps. I used an entire roll of film and it was well worth it.

Dad,Peggy and Lisa


We would like to know more about the cost and vision of the cross, since I have had the same vision, but to do it here in Arizona. We have 192 acres along Interstate 8 we would like to do a similar project would you be of any help. The girl at the visitor center asked me to contact Steve Thomas for more information. Linda Buckley Bjork, P.O. Box 373 Gila Bend, AZ 85337 e-mail rucker683@yahoo.com 1888-683-8345


My husband and I stopped and seen your display on our way back home from vacation. There are not words to express how pretty it is. I wish I could send everybody I know down there to see it. Connie Myers Atkins, AR


My family and I visited the cross last Tuesday (July 22, 2003). After being on the road 3 weeks, and spending time in San Francisco, Eureka, CA, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, Aspen, Amarillo, and seeing the Redwood Forest & Yosemite National Park, this was the most awesome part of our trip.

My wife's grandmother, who lives in Lake Tanglewood took us there, and we have been thanking her ever since. I got on your website to find out more about this great project you have started.

What a pleasant surprise to see my favorite football player's name. The Thomas' have definitely been blessed by our Father, and it is awesome that you are sharing this wonderful project with our great nation and all of it's visitors.

God Bless you all,

Mark & Terri Johnson cgaechief@comcast.net Mobile, AL


I came to see the cross and the site on my way to Colorado and was completely touched and blessed that is such a spot to come and see what Jesus suffered for us. Christi Wister, Ok


Seen the Cross while driving with my wife from New Mexico to Tulsa, OK. for my grandson's baseball tournament. Had to stop at the Cross on the drive home and found it beautiful and inspiring. Using the information from the folder given us at the gift shop allowed me to see the web site which is great. John & Lupe Niemann


While attending a class in Austin several months ago, I met a wonderful person who had recently moved to Witchita with her family. I lost contact with her as I couldn't remember her last name. Later I found a paper with her name written on it. I e-mailed her and she e-mailed me back with this site included. Each time I visit this site my heart breaks when I remember what our Savior sacrificed so that we could have eternal life. This site is such a witness. I've since told many of my friends about it and will continue to do so. This site is a reminder that Christ is soon to come. Wish I could express more of what I feel. Thanks so much for the work and vision that God gave in bringing it to past.

Vicki D. Berry


The cross was a beautiful blessing made for all of the people in the United States, let it be stood up as long as it can be, and let everyone's prayers and blessings come true. God did a whole, whole, whole lot of stuff for everyone and all of the people should be proud of what he can do and/or what he has done for everyone in the past hundreds of years. Everyone should try their best to visit this wonderful place that they have done for our Lord Jesus Christ, because it is a beautiful place to go and see. Keep on doing your good and hard work on it because it sure does look good and it means a lot to a lot of the people out in this world, and whatever you do don't destroy it, because it is a wonderful blessing for all of us and a lovely place to go and visit and pray to him anytime and/or whenever we need him.


I WAS AT THE cross PROJECT AND IT REALLY SENDS A MESSAGE THAT JESUS GAVE IT ALL UP FOR US AND IT ACCORDING TO MY WIFE HOW COULD ANYONE VISIT THIS SITE AND NOT SURRENDER HIS LIFE TO CHRIST


A few years ago my husband and I came across the cross on our trip to CA. At that time it wasn't as big as it is now. I really liked it then. This year when we again went to CA we had our 8 year old grandson and had told him we would be stopping to show him THE BIGGEST CROSS I had ever seen. When we got there the three of us was very impressed at the improvements that have been done since our last time. My grandson kept saying "Look at this one". I know the next time we go by it we will have to stop again to see the latest things, hopefully at night...Rita, Tom & Alex


THANKS FOR THE UPLIFTING EXPERIENCE! I ENJOYED THIS SITE VERY MUCH! KIMBERLY REICHERT ALMA ARKANSAS


I took pictures of this Cross on the way to Co. It is a beautiful sight to see. Betty Rhea


The pictures were beautiful, but the meaning behind the symbols is what is awesome!!!!


Driving by the cross draws one to stop to see it. Stopping there is a blessing. We'll be back when it is not so hot, so that we can spend more time meditating on the various elements. I hope to be alive long enough to see it when it is completed. Thank you.


hello we are soldiers of the cross in Denison Texas and we would like to invite you to come out September 6th 10.00am to 5.00pm for a band of brothers in the park, different ministries will be there for food fun fellowship and showing God's love for more information call mike @903-463-6335 or Rocky @ 903-463-2243 Be blessed the soldiers of the cross


We visited the cross on our way home from AZ - IN. It made our day a lot better, we seemed to talk more to each other had a lot less stress and seemed to think about things we have been putting off. It was awesome. My 12 Year daughter is now planning a trip with 3-5 of her friends for next summer and she asked about taking them all to the cross. I thought that was nice, especially since a theme park was the next stop and not first. Thanks to all you made and is still making the cross a place for people like me who on my way thru was changed forever.


This is a Very Beautiful web site. my wife and Daughter visited there on the way home from Arizona and spoke Very Highly of the Cross and has told anyone who will listen about it. it is Truly a Very moving place to see. Thanks to all who made the Cross possible. God Bless You All !! Mike Chamness


I saw the cross at night and it was a really awesome experience. I am really glad I went.

~~LISA BACKER~~


What a wonderful site! I have seen many, but this one is absolutely awesome. Thank you for sharing this with us all. I pray to go one day to see it. May God Bless you in your work! Linda in Louisiana


GORGEOUS!!! :OD


Aug. 12, 2003 Sue Ann Woolfrey, Townsend, MA I have tears in my eyes from the feelings that these pictures gave me. To think about what Jesus did for us and then the people who made this beautiful site in Texas in His honor. So Beautiful!

I would like to know where the stations of the cross are located.


ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!


What a way to witness! I hope to visit one day! God Bless!


Love the site!


This was a really neat sight to see. Thanks


Good for you! Del Van Gorder


A friend sent me this web site. It is truly awesome. I hope and pray that my husband and I will be able to see the cross in Sept. We have a 33 foot cross here in Theriot, Louisiana. The couple that has the cross also had a message to build a cross. The number 33 for the years Jesus walked the earth. I am happy to see another cross go up in our neighboring state. Can't wait to see it.


thank you so much a wonderful 10-min you gave me!! God Bless All, Lindsey p.s thanks1


On the way home from a family reunion in Chattanooga, TN. My Dad and Stepmom stopped by this amazing place, and when they came home they told me all about it. How moving it was, and that when you observed each station it was like you could see everything taking place. Also that just looking at these statues made tears come to their eyes, and even just looking at this website made tears fall down my cheeks as well. I look forward to stopping by Groom someday just to see what I have missed out on. I hope that the chapel that is being built will be just as beautiful. ps. God Bless Mr. and Mrs. Thomas for coming up with this vision of love, and thank you for sharing it with the world.


Seeing the cross Jesus carried and died for us, really made me realize how much love he has for us. Thank you for reminding me to keep my focus on Him always!! God Bless you all out there!!


We were on a vacation for 22 days traveling the West. This is the highlight of the trip. This is one place you can't forget.. So touching. Look forward to the ongoing building. Morris and Loyce Georgia


i went here in July 2003 and its really cool I enjoyed each station it was very cool! rachel


peace is the silent messenger of God Jesse Witt


JUST HAPPENED TO COME UPON THIS AND WAS SO BLESSED IN THE WORK YA'LL ARE DOING TO LIFT UP THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST THE LIVING SON OF GOD! THANK GOD HE IS NO LONGER ON THE CROSS AND REINS IN OUR HEARTS AND IS PHYSICALLY SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD!

MAY GOD RETURN TO YOU 100 FOLD RETURN IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO LIFT HIS UP THROUGH HIS SON.

PLEASE KEEP IT SIMPLE AND NOT ALLOW A PROFIT IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING! I HAVE SEEN SO MANY STEP IN WITH A CLEAN AND PURE HEART BEFORE THE LORD AND DO SO MUCH TO PROMOTE THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS, BUT THEN MONEY GETS IN THE WAY AND IT SHAMES OUR LORD JESUS!

AGAPE, JUDY STONE, MCCASKILL, AR 71847


I have been spiritually moved and can't wait to take my wife on this pictorial journey. Now I am going to have to figure how I can make a trip to site of the crosses and sculptures. Just simply beautiful.

wordenb@mchsi.com


How very beautiful, also painful to look at. Brought a lot of emotion and realism. Well done!


As a "displaced" Texan living in Illinois, I can't wait to get back to my home state and view this wonder! Thank you for honoring our Lord rather than some car or fictional hero. -EDLC


It was great seeing this cross while traveling on those long sleeping trips across interstate 40. It kind of gave me strength to keep going.

L.G. Williams


Now is the time to be doing something to bring the world to Jesus Christ. Your ministry is doing just that. Thank you and may Mary the Mother of God intercede for all of your intentions. Edward Sondag , Illinois


I visited this the actual cross site yesterday traveling from Lubbock TX to Tulsa OK. It was a most inspirational stop on our journey. May God Bless you for having this beautiful area to the many travelers who pass that way. Glendene Geurin Wagoner OK


Beautiful stations! Frankie from England.


We drove through on our way to California from Tennessee in 2000 and visited this awesome sight. It is wonderful and the photos do not show how huge it really is. But when you stand there under the cross ,words leave you. We are Catholic and made the stations together as a family. We did not know of it ,but saw it as we passed and made sure we stopped to see it all. God continue to bless you all Olga Edghill. Ps I am from Trinidad in the West Indies ,near Venezuela.


Awesome sight, hope more see it....


WE WERE COMING FROM CAL. GOING TO PA. ON VACATION. OUT OF NO WHERE WE SEEN THE CROSS. GOT OUT AND TOOK PICTURES IT WAS A VERY MOVING SIGHT TO SEE JESUS AND DYING ON THE CROSS AND TEARS FELL . I WANTED TO REACH OUT AND HELP HIM. GOD BLESS YOU AND THE MINISTRIES YOU ARE DOING . MAYBE YOU CAN SAVE SOME SOULS. WHILE TRAVELING I SEEN A SIGN ON THE CHURCH YARD,. A DUSTY BIBLE HAS A DIRTY SOUL. GOD BLESS


Stumbled upon this site and was totally amazed and moved by the ministry that is going on in Groom, Texas. May people's hearts be stirred by the Holy Spirit to make a decision to serve Jesus as they see and visit this place and website. Hope to see it in person one day. Tony Banfield, Jr. - Friendswood, Texas


We were there Sat Aug 2 the lord touched every inch of our souls body mind and heart Elva jean Balke and Steve Tower From concord NC we plan to get married at the cross


My wife and I were inspired beyond belief when we drove by your cross a few weeks ago. The only thing we have seen to compare to it are the giant farm animal statues along the freeway in North Dakota. These however were representations of living creatures, rather than depictions of methods ancient cruelty, so they failed to inspire us like your lovely cross did.


My husband and I were traveling to Oklahoma like all of our many trips, But this time I said "hey on our way back let's stop, we always pass this huge cross but never stop." Only God knew why. See we were on our way to court, because of a child support mix up. Well all went well. On the way back we stopped and my husband and I were so overwhelmed by the site. I started crying because of all that God had done for us that weekend. And not only that I knew exactly why we were suppose to have stop on the way back. You see we had to stop to give our Lord And Savior all the glory!!!. He had just gotten us out of a 10,000 debt. The Cross itself was so AWESOME. All the stations were too. That day God reminded me of the reasons why I live today and every day, FOR HIM. Well thanks for the wonderful experience that day. My favorite thing was the tomb, but only because it empty. I know Our Lord Jesus Christ LIVES!!!! love N.H.


Shalom... We were traveling through Texas back to California last week. When from a distance we saw what looked like a huge cross in the horizon. When we got closer we noticed that the placed looked very interesting, so we doubled back and drove in to what was to be one of the most amazing and moving experiences in a long time. After getting over the shock of just how large the cross was. We walked around the stages of our Messiah's journey to Calvary. The tomb for all the unborn babies murdered with our Lord holding an unborn baby in His palm brought us to tears. Thank you so much for building this amazing site. We were honored to donate to this moving experience. Shalom, Rod and Gloria from California


Hi. I saw the cross and it was fabulous. Thanks so much for the inspiration.


Thank you for this beautiful site. I would really love to see this cross. I know it must be awesome!


HELLO I AM WAYNE SCRUGGS. I'M A TRUCK DRIVER FROM TUPELO MS. I VISITED YOUR PLACE IN GROOM TX. ON 9 19 03. THIS WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL HEART WARMING PLACE IN THE WHOLE WORLD. SOME DAY I WOULD LIKE TO BRING MY ENTIRE FAMILY TO VISIT . I FOR GOT TO SIGN YOUR REGISTER BEFORE LEAVING PLEASE FORGIVE ME. WAYNE SCRUGGS


THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST WONDERFUL WEB SITES I HAVE EVER VIEWED. THE TRIP WHICH I GOT TO SEE THIS CROSS AND ALL THE STATIONS WAS A VERY TOUCHING SPECIAL EVENT IN MY LIFE. IT MADE A VERY STRONG IMPRESSION ON MY LIFE . IT MADE ME FEEL A VERY REALISTIC UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT REALLY WENT ON THAT DAY SO LONG AGO WHEN THE CRUCIFIXION ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE. I FELT VERY HONORED TO HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING THERE. I INTEND TO RECOMMEND THAT ALL MY FRIENDS VISIT THIS SPECIAL PLACE AND I INTEND TO GO THERE AGAIN THE NEXT TIME I GO TO GOODNIGHT TO VISIT MY DAUGHTER AND HER FAMILY.


So Absolutely Awesome and Moving! What wonderful people that put this together! God bless you all! In his Love, Carla and Abby


We really loved your place that you have there. We visited it this weekend and for got to sign the guest book. So I am doing it now. It was truly a blessing to visit the Cross. I would like to keep informed so when you finish it all, we will come back and see it for sure. Thank You Jack Pell Pryor, Oklahoma


I had the most awesome experience when I came to see the cross! I had the joy of coming to see the cross this past July 03' when I came with my friends who drive a big rig. I was filled with a great spirit, peace, love and joy just overtook me. Thank you so much for building something so great. Deborah Farley


After first stopping at Oklahoma City to see the Memorial to the victims of the Murrow Building bombing and feeling all of the pain of that day, it was truly uplifting to see this Cross which was raised to the glory of God. It is so peaceful to walk around and see what you have done. If ever we travel Rt 40 again, we will surely stop again. We tell everyone about it and say they must see it for themselves. God bless all of you. Harry & Cindy Dover,Ohio


We were at the Cross in Mid-September. It was AWESOME!!! Please keep your website up and running. We hope to visit again when the new Visitor Center is completed.


A friend just told me of this site as she came upon it on her travels to Pennsylvania. WOW! I can't wait to plan a trip there, I want to feel His presence. Thank you for putting together such a wonderful place for us to visit and pray and learn more of our Lord.


Thank you for this beautiful and most inspiring moment that I spent at Jesus' site. We Thank Our Lord God for giving these people the will to do something like this so people can get closer to Our Lord Jesus Christ. I will most definitely spread the word about this site and hopefully they too will come and visit the Cross. All can be done by word of mouth . Amen


We stop to see the Cross every Fall and was there last week. We are touched each time we see the Cross as we drive down the road.


God Bless you Steve and Bobbie, Our Sisters really enjoy the inspiring visits to the cross. Each time our Lord speaks deeply. You are in our Prayers, Mother Lucy Lukasiewicz DLJC


The site looks awesome. Looking forward to seeing the completion....May God continue to bless this project.....


This is beautiful. My sister and her room mate came to visit the site while traveling from California to KY. They were awestruck at the soul wrenching site. I wept when they showed me the photos they had taken and the gift photo album they bought for me. I wish that I could send a donation to help maintain this for others to see the gift you have given to others in honor of Jesus' gift to us. Praise God. May God bless you always. Thank you for sharing your faith.


This sight I found today...Some of your pictures, wow! One especially, I could only but say, "my Jesus". what He has done for me. For us all. I did not know that a sight like this was here. I will share it with my friends. Maybe, I'll put an add in the paper under accouchements. I'm ordering a photo book now by phone, as a gift for Christmas. God is with you, and his blessings are real! Bless His Name, Jesus. Linda Mead Oh.


Fantastic! Will have to make the trip to see it soon!


Last year a friend and me took a road trip from Lubbock to Notre Dame, and just happened to go through Groom. Of course, we stopped to pray and see the wonders of The Cross. Since then I have brought many of my college friends on the trip to see the cross. Thank you so much for placing a reminder of our Lord that cannot be missed! Andi Kopenec


I was at the cross on 10-16-03. I thought the way the scenes were done was outstanding just to walk around the grounds uplifted my spirit as we traveled back home to Lawton we talked about what seeing the cross done for each of us. it was a very peaceful trip back home thank you lamod&tammy mcfadden


This is one of the most touching and beautiful experience that we have witnessed. Love in Christ, Glen & Mary Dale


my husband and I drove team on a big rig and drove past this site each week as we watched it become complete. on each trip I looked across the horizon for many miles just see the cross. each time I passed by it was an awesome experience that I can't explain, and the feeling it gave me was, I can only say, complete peace and serenity. it is like you can feel the presence of God all around. what a blessing you have provided for us all to experience. Tim and Anne, Ozark, AL


HELLO, I JUST WANTED TO EXPRESS HOW MUCH I ENJOYED LOOKING AT PICTURES, AND READING THE INFORMATION. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT. MY 9 YEAR OLD SON AND HIS GRANDFATHER VISITED IN PERSON ABOUT A WEEK AGO. THEY GIVE ME THE WEB ADDRESS, AND I PLAN ON VISITING MYSELF VARY SOON


May God Bless all whose hard work has created a Blessing in our lives. Yes, God Lives and May all who look upon this Cross be reminded of HIS LOVE. M & D Keel, Washington,


What a wonderful way to spread the Gospel! I never thought I'd have a reason to drive to the panhandle of Texas - now I do. My husband and I can't wait to visit. Thank you for choosing to walk on the path God has laid out for you.


I DROVE BY IN THE SUMMER OF 2003. IT WAS A BLESSING TO BE THERE AND SEE GODS WORK. RICK TORRES DIAMOND BAR, CA


" A sight to behold ". Most of both my lungs have been removed from Cancer, ( smoking for almost forty years being the culprit ) My prayer and wish is to be able to make the trip to Groom Texas to see this beautiful sight before I go to see the Lord. Your presentation here on the Web Site is truly awesome and a work of art in behalf of our LORD and Savior JESUS CHRIST whom I love dearly.


I visited the Cross in Sept. 2003 and was very amazed. Thank you for sharing your love of Our Lord with the world. SFH, Dayton, PA


My Husband and I stopped to see the cross Sept or Oct of 2000 while driving a semi truck. And I hope to go by and stop again. It is really something to see. Thank You!!


I have personally seen the cross, and the scene is just breathtaking. Thank you for creating something so beautiful. Timothy Main Philadelphia


bless the lord


This is a cool web site, I love the Lord with all of my Heart. I was saved 6 yrs ago at a ladies retreat in cambria. I was delivered from drugs and alcohol while I was there. My Husband and I were on the verge of splitting up and now we are both serving the lord. we have been married for 20 years and have two children. Well actually my son is an young man 18 and my daughter is 15. If it wasn't for them going to church with my mom our family would be split up. So with that I want to say God Bless. Love Pam


I just went to see the cross this Sunday, and it was great! I really enjoyed being there and reading all of the interesting things that they had there.


When I went to Groom and saw the cross and very interesting things that yawl had there it was so awesome. I know that just how I enjoyed it there are many other people who have, keep up the good work and GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!!!

I LOVE crosses and I collect them and when I saw this one I feel in love with it, it is very lovely! By going there for the 1st time I learned a lot of things I did not know and I have been a believer since I was a child and saved by the blood for 4 yrs. it is a good thing and it blesses many people keep up the faith and NEVER surrender to the enemy. JESUS LOVES YOU God Bless You WE LOVED IT VERY MUCH THANK YOU


We visited the Cross last July. It was awesome. We pray that many will be drawn closer to God by seeing the cross even if it is only driving by. Making the stop was wonderful


I've been to the cross many times it's beautiful thank you


WoW! That is amazing!


We have stopped three times at The Cross and there are not words to describe the feeling one gets just by being there. The Tomb gives one goose bumps. When one goes from Station to Station, the tears flow. The hands with the fetus brings many feelings as well as "Why"? Awesome does not begin to explain the beauty and serenity of the place where The Cross stands. I'm certain God cherishes it. Mr and Mrs. Giles Smith, Tarkio, Missouri.


This is very touching. Thank You.


Congratulation on a monumental project, what is even more incredible is what Christ accomplished by His death and resurrection!


Amazing! Great Job! Praise the Lord!


Because of him I can face tomorrow. The cross made the difference. Thanks be to the sacrifice he made for me.


I love this monument. I seen it in person in 2000 and it touched me on several different ways. I couldn't believe the work and love that went into this cross. The way this inspired me. And let me go through the steps one by one the way Jesus did and what he went through for me and everyone. And I share the story of me visiting this monument with everyone I can..


I would like to say that this story of Our Heavenly Father has gone through the extreme!!! for our sins. I felt the pain from within my inner self fro my Heavenly Father. I love him fro what he did and continue to LOVE him more daily in my life. I THANK OUR HEAVENLY FATHER!!!!!! for giving me life on earth. This was very Beautiful to see and I even felt the heart of tears inside of me. I just wish that people would really accept the Lord in their hearts for what he has done for us, to be where we are today in our busy lives or granted life in many ways. He has gone beyond our wildest dreams and then some. No man!!!!! on earth would give up his life for him, but he did for us without any second thoughts or hesitations. Thank you LORD for what you brought me or have given to me, everyday, my Holy Spirit in me. I love you and thank you Cross Ministries for these Beautiful pictures. Some day I hope to visit the site area. I hope soon. God Bless you all who put there time and effort into this site. I will pray for you.. In Loving Christ, Maria E. Rojas


It was wonderful sight as we were traveling on I-40 to spend thanksgiving day with my family in New Mexico. It is great reminder of our beloved Jesus. Barb&Aaron of Missouri


Beautiful sight from I-40. Thank you and thank the Lord!


I LOVE YOUR CROSS WHO PEOPLE BUILT


What a wonderful witness to the Ministry of our Lord. To be able to look into the face of Jesus with the life size bronze sculptures. To walk the walk that Jesus took. To see the pain he must of endured for us as he took his last steps to the cross. So inspiring, a memory that will always be with us. We look forward to next time we can come to visit. God bless your ministry. I tell everyone about it. Gene & Donna Enoch, Modesto CA.


Dear Brother in Beloved Christ. Your website is a great treasure for all those who wish to meet Christ. Your organization can help many people in Pakistan to come to Christ, especially those who are lost ( the non-Christians) and Christian themselves who have forgotten Christ. It is a high time for us all to bring people to Christ. Otherwise Islamic fundamentalism will eat us all in Pakistan, and there will no steps of Christianity in the coming 15 years. Christ Mission Ministries Faisalabad-Pakistan


Your web site is really great. I look forward to seeing the shrine some day. Larry Schuetz Sioux City, IA


My wife and I traveled in a motor coach and passed The Cross many times but were in too big of a hurry to stop. Two days after my wife died I did stop and was helped very much, both spiritually and physically by the experience. Since that first stop I have stopped every time I pass and have gained something each time. Fred Myers


THAT IS TRULY BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE IT.


We have seen the cross in person and it is truly awe inspiring. We wish to thank all those who had a part in its construction. Gary and naomi lindroos.


My family and I visited The Cross 12/21/03 it was awesome. W. Wallace / TN


A friend of mine traveled to your worship site during his vacation. He showed us his pictures that he took and I was blown away. Beautiful! Absolutely beautiful.


Be Blessed...L.D. Perkins


THANK YOU FOR OBEYING THE LORD, MANY PEOPLE WILL BE TOUCHED BY THIS AND WILL THANK YOU IN HEAVEN. GOD BLESS YOU! TIM RICHARDSON


1-1-04 Glenda Eaton 202 Shangri-La Place Glasgow, Ky.42141 This was on our town home page today. Wonderful pictures and awesome story. I hope someday I can see this in person.


I think it is wonderful that we still have people today who are not afraid to show what Jesus means to them. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration.


THE CROSS WAS THE GREATEST BLESSING WHEN ON MY WAY TO NEW MEXICO TO SEE MY MOTHER WHOM I HAVE NOT SEEN IN 9 YEARS. I OFTEN WONDER WHAT UNSAVED PEOPLE THINK WHEN THEY SEE IT, IF THEY EVEN THINK OF JESUS.


THANK YOU FOR THIS BLESSING, AS WE CAME UPON THE CROSS GOING TO NEW MEXICO TO SEE MY MOTHER WHOM I HAVE NOT SEEN IN 9 YEARS. WONDER WHAT UNSAVED PEOPLE THINK WHEN THEY SEE IT? VALERIE B GARDNER COOSADA, ALABAMA

An absolutely amazing website!!! Will pass on to all of my family and friends! Amy Shirley, Glasgow, KY


The Cross was on our local website in my hometown What an awesome site words can't express how I felt after reading and seeing the things of Christ in Pampa, Texas May God Bless you and your family always 1/1/04 Kentucky


This is outstanding. I'd love to see it in person some day. May God bless the founders and all those who visit it.


I was just searching for a Christian material to read when l saw the magnificent cross. It reflects the glory of our lord Jesus Christ. May God Bless you. Emmanuel Ofori-Asare ofori@tesco.net


I will probably never see this awesome sight in person, but am so blessed to have seen it on the computer site. Thank you for making it available. E. Dupin, KY


On out way back from Nevada after being with our daughter during the Christmas holidays, we could not wait to get to this beautiful cross in Texas. We had driven by it many times and this was our first time stopping and seeing it up close. It is so awesome. I wish everyone could see it. I could not wait to get home and look at what we had seen on your wonderful website. Bless all those who have been blessed in making this masterpiece. I have a picture of this cross on my desk at work and I will be giving pictures of it to my friends also. This is truly a beautiful website and we will share it with our friends. Tom and Bonnie Greensburg, IN


Beautiful, Excellent reminder of Gods Love, Karen Tolliver


I have never had the opportunity to travel to this part of Texas (and did not know this Cross existed), but through your web site I have been blessed to see the pictures. Thank you and God Bless You all.


I had the blessed opportunity to meet Steve and Bobbi recently who then shared the story of the cross. It's amazing until you factor their LOVE for GOD and life long commitment to the glory. I look forward to the day when I can see the cross in person. This is truly inspiring!!! In Christ, Joe Lafferty J_Lafferty@yahoo.com


Such a blessing. I was never more inspired and could feel the Holy Spirit. God bless you all. Lynda Staub


I saw this 2 years ago and was very impressed. It really depicts the events that happened at that time. Looking at what Jesus had endured for the sake of mankind is really inspirational. William Hildebrandt Leavenworth, Kansas


My daughter had visited this cross a few months ago and brought pictures back to show me, I am so impressed with this site and with the story of the building of this memorial for our Jesus. Thank you, Ruth L. Staton


stunning ( ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE AND ARE CALLED FOR HIS PURPOSE )


MARSHA SHONK JOHN SMITH WE WERE AT THE CROSS DECEMBER 29, 2003. WHAT AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE !!! WHAT A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE !!! THE CROSS IS A TRUE TESTIMONY FOR CHRIST.


We were fortunate to visit the cross and statues in summer of 2002. wonderful experience. Wish we could go back and see what has been done since then. Delbert and Barbara Anderson, Denver, CO.


I visited the Cross about 4 years ago and you were working on . my nephew lives out in Amarillo and I asked him to find me this web site. so I can view this again. I hope to visit the Cross again in the near future. you done a good job on doing this. I just wish there was a place like this where I live in owensboro, ky.


Saw the cross from over a mile away while heading West on Rt 40 last week on our way to Durango, CO. We stopped by to visit while traveling East back to Springfield, MO. Very, very inspiring. Have seen the "other" cross on Rt 44 in Effingham, Ill.


keep up the good work


I want to thank those who made this possible. My husband and I were there in May 2003 and I love coming to this site to refresh what we saw in my mind. I have never in my life felt as close to Jesus as I did the day we were there. Thank you so much. Vicki Shannon; Marietta, IL


I am the crippled man who came to visit you last August and told you about my dream, that I had seen this cross in my dream and made a small donation. you gave me a picture that was one of a kind that was taken at night with the lights on but it showed a darkened world full of sin, as the lights did not show up in the picture that you gave me. I have not forgotten you or the 9mmaculate work that The Cross Ministries is doing. Please expect a donation in the first week of February which will continue throughout the year. This was a literal dream come true to see the cross that I dreamed about just a few years back. Know that I love you and the work that you are doing in bringing in the lost from out of a field seen from the interstate. God will bless you in abundance this year. Well done such faithful servants of The Most High In Jesus Holy Name Love always, David Rock


I just received this from a friend. I thought it was great. The pictures seem so real. I would like to visit it some day. Thank you for this blessing. I will send it to my friends. You know , I don't see how any body lives without our Lord and Savior. May God bless you.


I was awed by the photos on your web page. I have never heard of this place, but would really like to visit. You can tell by how the work came together that it was blessed. I hope it brings many blessings to all who visit. Beverly Conner Flatwoods,Ky.


Awesome. Claire Barnes


My Sister passed the website on to me and it was a great blessing. I really want to plan to come see it myself.


I've seen this cross twice while driving cross country. Most recently was on New Year's Eve of 2003. What a truly awesome site from the interstate. I'm hoping that on my next drive, we'll actually get a chance to stop and meditate. Just driving by it gives a feeling of euphoria and I know Jesus Lives!!! JLFleming


This wed site was sent to me by my aunt. It really touch me. I would love to go to Texas and see this. It makes me feel closer to heaven.


Alisha Delgado The awe of God is seen in the enormity of the cross.


This Is Awesome / I Have Never Seen Anything Like This Before > It Give You A Feeling Of Gods Presence . Thank You And God Bless You. MarvaCol@ Msn.Com


Saw the Cross on my travel across country. Will never forget the experience and hope to return one day soon. Shawn Allen, Odenton, MD


I was given information on your web site today and decided to visit. I am in the travel business, dealing with churches. After viewing this web site I realized this would be a very good place for us to take our buses as we traveled the country. C.T.I. Tours & Travel P.S. It would be good for you to place a small map on your web for directions from Amarillo.


We saw the cross in person and were amazed. It gave a realistic visual to the moments leading to our salvation. Amen! Deana Zamudio


I was reading the book DATEABLE and the guy who wrote it mentioned this cross thanks you all are awesome may God Bless you give God the Glory


I received a email to your web site and I want to say it is beautiful from here and I am looking forward to viewing the site in person. May God bless each & every soul, each and every prayer that was put into this masterpiece. May He add His blessings to you every day. Love in Christ Christine Harrell


I visited the cross in 1998 while I was driving for Swift Transportation. A lot was not completed then I love what you have done. It looks awesome. When I get back down that way I will stop. Ivan L. Wright


WOW!!!! THAT'S ALL I CAN SAY! IS WOW!!!


I and my daughter stopped in Groom to see this 'big' cross we were so amazing at how tall it is and the stations, the tomb, everything was an emotional walk for us. My 6 year old is so in love with Jesus, she had to hug each statue of him. Thank you and God bless you all for the amazing contribution.


Just amazing and beautiful. I have been reading "The Purpose Driven Life" and have been closer to God each day. This is one place I can't wait to visit.


I actually visited the Cross in November of 2002 while driving back from La to Ca with my father after burying a cousin. Though I was tired, grumpy, and freezing. I was happy to have beheld such a site. One question that I can't seem to find on the site though; when was this erected?


Hello. This Is Maria. I am glad that all of this work Is being done. The more the better. Spread the word ..... the truth. Let It be known!!!!! Praise the LORD Jesus Christ our savior. +God+ Bless you all!!!!!


This is so great. Thank you Steve Thomas for doing this for people to enjoy!!!!! Love, Tonya age 13 Kansas


It is truly a miracle that God loves us so much that he would sacrifice his only Son for us.


My Fiancé is a truck driver and he took me to your site, it was the most emotional moment in time for me, as I walked around looking at the statues of Jesus being crucified, I just can't explain the feelings that overwhelmed me, but the one thing that most impressed me and touched my heart was the headstone with the hands on it, for all of the lost babies, that is the first time in my life I have ever seen anyone acknowledge them, God bless you and thank you for sharing this with us, Jimmy & Kathy


I would like to tell you of my wonder at the sight of the cross as my sister and I traveled across country. We saw it from 12 miles away. as we approached it seemed to rise from the flat plain where it sits. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT! I am glad to see that the stations are almost done. They are very impressive. IO am looking forward to seeing the tomb and the new water garden.


thank those who built this for others to enjoy


Great site. A friend saw your Cross on a trip. I wish you were not so far away I would like to see it. Elbert Bentley


God is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work in us. God is mighty to do far more abundantly more than all we ask or imagine - hyperekperissou. This site is expecting great things for God and attempting great things for God. There will be many mighty conversions.


I love going to this place, it makes me feel peaceful, it is somewhere I could go, to find myself


my dad is a truck driver and every time he goes by there he stops and he was telling me how beautiful this place was, so he took me there and he was right, it is very awesome, thank you for making this place for us. God Bless You, and your families


I thought the work & workmanship were marvelous - thank you for the subject matter you choose , we need to spend more time thinking of Christ which includes the passion .


Steve and Bobbie, The work is finally done!!! Looks great. To God be the glory. We love you................. Gigi


I had never heard of the Cross until my Payroll Supervisor brought the pictures in to work to show me. It is truly Awesome. I'm glad I found the sight, now I can send it to my fellow church members and friends and plan the trip!


Hey I really love this, I used to live in Groom I love you all and MAY GOD BLESS YOU


this is a good thing you have done. we all need to get back to Christ and follow his teachings. nothing but good can come from this. thank you so much for sharing this


A very worthwhile tour, worth every minute you spend here. It is surprising how many see, but don't stop to see what is there on the premises. The couple of times I have returned to the panhandle, this has made the trip well worth it, Richard B Cochran PO Box 2917 BattleGround Wa.98604


WE VISITED THERE ABOUT 6 YRS AGO AND WERE HAPPY TO SEE THE ADDITIONS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE. THANK YOU. GLENDAL AND MYRNA DOUGLAS, OCEAN SPRINGS, MS.


Unfortunately I had a good friend who committed suicide this past September. He was buried in Groom and it is so nice to see that there is this great cross in the place where he rests. It is beautiful


Praise God! We look forward to taking a trip to pray at the Cross. I thank God for your courage in sharing God's love. Cynthia Cerda


May the Lord bless you and keep you. May He make His face to shine upon you.... God Bless this ministry . The Reed family


I visited this site 2 1/2 years ago and I am still amazed at the affect it had on me. Thank you for the experience. And I hope to visit there again in the near future. This web page excites me all over again. C. Wilson San Diego, CA


I was fortunate enough to visit you in November '03 I was wondering if there are any plans for Holy Week or if everyone is welcome, as usual, to just come to pray. I loved your presentation. It, along with Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion, should be MUSTS for everyone. Sandy Young Columbus Ohio


My sister came upon this cross while traveling to Florida from Nevada. She told me I just had to see it. My chance is now, I am on my way to Texas to see my son before he leaves for Iraq on March 17th, "04. The Cross is a must on my list. Your web site brings one closer to God, such an awesome site to see.


I was on a trip with my mother just months before she was diagnosed with cancer and passed away. When all the sudden we saw this giant cross in the distance, when we got to it we stopped to see what it was, it was beautiful and my mom gave me a lesson in bible study, I knew nothing about the stations of the cross, and was amazed that my mother knew this. I didn't know that she had studied the bible, she never attended church with us kids. It was a wonderful sight and we enjoyed it very much. Thank You and God Bless ldavi691@aol.com


Inspirational. Thank you.


Thank you for allowing e-mail patrons to view your website. My sister shared this with me and I find it very comforting and enlightning. She has personally saw the cross in Texas so she shared it with me. Ilove your website and hope you can share more sometime. God bless your ministry and whoever is a part of it Sylvia Thomas bugbug042000@yahoo.com

I saw this place and I loved it. It was a beautiful and touching display of art.God Bless.


My mother lives in Dumas,Texas, and my family and I have seen the Cross several times while on our way to visit her. We finally had the pleasure of stopping last week on our way back to Arkansas. What an awesome experience it was. We could definitely feel God's presence while we were there. We look forward to stopping every time we pass by there in the future. Thank You so much and God Bless You! Randy Baker

It made me cry...love in Christ, Judy Richey@cox-internet.com ,in Christ, Judy


A friend finding a new life was traveling through and came upon the cross. He was in such awe even though he's been unsure of his faith that as he left he asked God into his heart.( He met a preacher and his wife before he left which also helped.) He called me back in Missouri to share his good news. This is truly awesome. Thank God and thank you!!! T. Stone


It was actually in the fall of 1997 when I drove by this glorious cross for the first time. I had just graduated from college and happened to be driving cross country with my mom. I didn't know exactly what God's plans were for my life and at the time I had many questions. I was driving and asking my mom about the rapture and when she thought it might happen. I remember the moon was out that night and it looked so big and round in the sky. It had this beautiful bright orange color to it. When I looked ahead, I saw what looked like a cross hanging out of the sky. It was glowing and I asked my mom if she was seeing what I was seeing. My foot started shaking against the gas pedal and I thought, "Is this it? Is Jesus coming back now?" If he was, I definitely would not have been ready at that time. As we drove closer, the cross got bigger and bigger and I could hardly believe my eyes. We pulled over and just looked at it and of course, couldn't help but see the other onlookers. This was such a powerful experience for me and I knew at that moment I decided to follow God's will for my life and not my own. Thank you for building this cross! Mimi Gassert Minneapolis, Minnesota


A VERY HUMBLING EXPERIENCE...I SAW THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST AND THAT HUMBLED ME ALSO....WOULD LOVE TO SEE THIS IN PERSON... HAVE HEARD TRUCKERS SPEAK OF IT AND HOW THEY FEEL WHEN THEY SEE IT...GOD BLESS YOU FOR DOING THIS I'M AM SURE IT HAS MADE MANY STOP AND THINK...A.S.A.P. ALWAYS SAY A PRAYER


It was very inspirational to see a cross of that magnitude. It was very good to see it especially at Easter. Hopefully I will visit one day. Have a Blessed Easter one and all. Richard Bohlander


very awe inspiring great work bob & louise mcguire morinville alberta canada


My husband drives truck and had passed the Cross several times. He had told me of the cross and how tall it was. I went on a trip with Him and saw that their was truck parking, so we immediately stopped. The visit has been a blessing in our lives. The serenity felt was incredible. We went to the cross and had prayer. WE have told all our church and family about the cross. We are from Robbins, TN and the cross has reached all the way out here. Our prayers are with you and all who stop at the cross. Your ministry is far reaching and truly done with the love of our Lord in mind. GOD BLESS YOU ALL ! !


April 9,2004 12:55 P.M. I had the blessed privilege of visiting the Cross in June of 1999. It is beyond awesome!! I had never been so moved and blessed by anything mortal. THANK YOU for building such a place for God's people. I viewed the "Passion of the Christ" movie a few weeks ago, and remembered the lifelike figures of your Cross. How AWESOME!!! May God continue to bless you as you bring His love to the world. Again, THANK YOU.


We visited the Cross on 3/17/04 while on our way from a care taking job in AR to a management couple position in AZ. We were traveling with our 3 year old. We were so overwhelmed with the Cross and the site and prayed for our continued safe travels and future job. Upon arrival in AZ we found that the position no longer existed due to the owner being in the hospital. We prayed and were full of joy and two days later located another couple management position that includes our housing and it was also in AZ! The awesome power of Jesus at work!


This is a beautiful site and such a huge reminder of how much God loves us, I just want to say thank you for all you've done and this continues to do for our Lord Jesus , this truely shows the love and sacrifice He has given us.


Praise Jesus


I've been past this cross many, many times. One of those times, I stopped and visited the magnificent cross. It was the most moving and inspiring things I've ever seen in my life! It was a very emotional experience for me. I had my children with me and they were also very moved by the awesomeness of it all! I tell all my friends, family, co-workers, and fellow Christians whom I run into at various places about this awe inspiring monument. Thank you for something so very special. God bless. Angie


My wife and I stopped by on our way to Oklahoma from California. It happened to be snowing that day, but we decided to stop anyway. Thank God, He gave us the wisdom to stop! Although snowing, we got out of the car and looked at some of the statues. It touched me so deeply, I re-dedicated my life to Jesus! Sadly, my wife and I recently separated after 25 years of marriage. I ask for your prayers, that He will somehow, bring us back together! I Love Her Dearly! Praise God In All You Do! It's His Plan, let Him do it!! Thank You, JESUS!!! Donnie & Meloney Adams- Calif.


This is the most beautiful and moving site that I have ever seen...Thank you for this wonderful thing that you have done.


The atmosphere was so real it felt like I was actually walking on Holy Ground!!!


I am a deacon in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City assigned to the Queen of All Saints Catholic Church in Sayre, Oklahoma. At the Suggestion of one of the ladies of our parish we decided to make a pilgrimage to the Cross, completing our observation of Devine Mercy week. After our 8 Am mass on Devine Mercy Sunday we made the eighty-mile drive, eight of us in all. I believe it was the most inspiring experience we could have chosen. As others have said, I felt as tho I was walking on Holly Ground. The stations are awesome; the Divine Mercy Fountain is absolutely beautiful. Beside the cross it's self, the most moving to me was the Tomb For The Unborn. I could go on and on, so as inadequate as it is, THANK YOU. May I also say that the "Blessed Marry Restaurant" in Groom, Texas is a must, and not because of the food alone. May God bless you and grant you His Peace... +mac


What a Wonderful way to share our Savior! May GOD bless this ministry in many ways, and I pray we will see those you have witnessed to in our eternal home! Marijon Jordan Merkel, TX 79536


This is truly the most amazing thing that has been done for our Lord and Savior. Mr. Thomas is to be commended for his work on this project. I really enjoyed my visit to the cross on Easter Sunday 2004. Thank you very much for having room for me to be able to park. I will be back for another visit. Vance Allen Grover, N.C.


The message of the cross of jesus have made a trnsformation in my life.It has been a turning point in and for my ministry. God bless your programmes and by it many will hint to the call of salvation. Protus kweyu( EA)


This is the Most Wonderful place. We were there in Oct. Bus Tour. We spent about 1-hr.There never got to see and read all that was there for us to see. Thanks, for a job well done. The Bolling's Aningdon Va.


There is no other place like this on earth. My life has been touched forever. Thank you.


My name is Cathy Lea. I recently took a trip out west and saw your cross from the Interstate. My friend and I drove that big eighteen wheeler truck to the cross...it was late at night. Both Mark and I were so moved by what we saw and experienced. Thanks to all who make this sight happen. I touched to sleeve of Jesus garment. I've been battling breast cancer for 3 years. This experience is one I'll never forget. We hope to visit there again next time in the day light. God Bless you all.........Cathy Lea


my name is tonya nutter i am from lima ohio. i saw this site on the computer and wanted to say how much it made me feel, joyful, happy and my children love to see the cross. they love our lord and adore him.


Dear Steve and Bobby, It was a pleasure meeting up with you on Bonita Beach this evening! Thank you for directing us to your wonderful website. May God bless you both for such an amazing undertaking! If God permits us I'd love to visit Groom Texas when we plan to do a cross country roadtrip with our children; hopefully in 2005. We pray that your grandbaby and daughter have a safe and blessed delivery. Thanks again for reaquainting us with you and your companions. In Jesus' Love, Tim and Maureen and son Christopher Boylan May 2, 2004


This is wonderful and beautiful. God works wonderfully in you all. My son and myself drove from Wisconsin to Arizona a few times and our highlight of the 2000 miles is visiting this peasful ground. I have told so many of my friends that they have to take the trip to visit here. This is something worth seeing and they probably could'nt wait to go again. Thank you Jesus and Thank You All


I THINK THAT IS REALLY COOL AND THAT IT TELL PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE WOULD THAT JESUS REALLY DID DIE ON THE CROSS AND THAT HE DID DIE FOR OUR SINS. THE CROSS TELLS ME THAT HE LIVED AND DIED AND ROSE AGAIN! I THINK THAT U SHOULD ADD SOME COLOR ONTO IT AND IF IS MEANS ABOUT THE WHITE DOVE OR SOMETHING THAN DONT, BUT THAT IS WHAT I HAVE TO SAY. BRITTANY


We were on Vacation on our way to Oklahoma & Arkansas coming from Sacramento,CA when we saw the "AWESOME BEAUTIFUL WHITE CROSS" from the Freeway. We passed it by thinking "We're driving & all of a sudden you see this "GIANT WHITE CROSS" & you wonder who put it there & why ? It's so SPECTACULAR" you can't miss seeing it ! And what a GREAT IDEA it was to put it there. Anyway, on the way back from Arkansas & Oklahoma we stopped & I took pictures of the "CROSS" & the FIGURINES of Jesus Christ. Each step I took made me more & more interested in seeing everything that was there. The "CROSS" & ALL the Figurines of CHRIST & The WaterFall was so "UNSPEAKABLE" to express the UnDying LOVE Jesus has for US ! I also went by the WaterFall & put my Hands in the "PRECIOUS WATER". This was the VERY BEST part of my Vacation. I Hope & Pray I can visit there again real soon! I Thank everyone that had a Part of Making this Possible, for all of us to SEE & ENJOY.God Bless You! Sincerely, Paula & James Pugh


This is a awsome site. Almost as good as being in Groom and seeing the statues in person. Thank you for a wonderful experience when I stopped by on 5/6/04 jojo@oz-ar.net


This is one of the most beautiful shrines I have seen in this country. Very inspiring. I was truly moved by this shrine. So wonderful. Elaine Thomas; Syracuse


Praise the Lord! On our way to OKC Friday morning, what a blessing to see as we topped the hill. Going down there to visit this site is awesome and what a ministry for millions of people, thankyou for such an awesome blessing, it made our families day!! Joy Conklin Artesia, NM


While on vacation traveling Rt. 40, I saw the cross. Was really glad to see it and also happy for the witness that it gives with all the people trying to remove menting of God and the Bible from our lives. astclair11@yahoo.com


It was such a wonderful experience. We saw the one in Groom and the one in Missouri as we travelled from AZ to Indiana. You could feel the presence of God and all the pain he went through for US. It was a wonderful experience to share with the kids and let them see first hand. THANK you for taking the time and expense to erect this wonderful monument.


E-Mail cjerryann@yahoo.com; I was at the cross in 2002, and saw everything but the tomb, which was not done at that time, but they were working on it. I have saw some pictures of the tomb on the web, it looks great. I can hardly wait to get back out there to see it all again, hoping to this year, would love to come each year, but I live in the State of Kentucky.


My neighbor just returned from your part of the country and they told me of this very beautiful roadside attraction, I don't do much traveling but I sure would like to see this place someday. She would like to go back too. Maybe one of these days I will make it there, very beautiful pictures on this site. wandaelwell@hotmail.com


Last month while traveling home, my brother and I stopped and spent time visiting the large cross site. I was in awe at the realism of the life size crosses and Golgotha as well as the empty tomb. Thank you for that oasis in the Texas plaine. I saw the cross from 5 miles away and truly was blessed. I have a friend heading down to Dallas for a visit, and have told her about your cross park. They are going by way of I-40 just to see your park. Thank you again for it. I pray many people come to know God through it/ Siouxanne Mease RN coobrn@earthlink.net


Amazing work and Praise be to God for everything comes from Him! "Let everything that has breath Praise the Lord" Psalm 150:6


We visited 'The Cross' on May 11, 2004 and couldn't believe the immensity of it. I couldn't wait to get home and find the WEB site. Seeing how it was put together was unbelievable. I was happy to see that it was sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. Thanks to the Thomases for their generosity. marihelm@edge.net


WOW.....a friend stopped and took a small video that he brought back for us to see. I am so taken by this. Thank you for listening and being true to the Lord. Many people who do not believe, will have second thought when seeing this. I will come to see this one day. May God Bless You and Yours.....


great Way to start the day aerochet@sbcglobal.net


S Pasienski I remember as a child traveling on the highway near by. Now there will something to look forward to for the weary traveler


I visited the cross about two weeks ago, it was...uplifting. Thank you so much.


Thank you so much to all of those of you who are involved in any way with this cross near Groom, TX. I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate this effort. Our world is in such an upheaval that a project of this magnitude is needed to make us realize just how we each need to know the Lord Jesus Christ in our own lives. All of you are so blessed to be able to make each and every one of us realize where we each stand in God's redeemption. I cannot explain what happened to me that day last week when I walked around each station. It was so inspiring to me things can only have changed within me for the good. May God Bless your efforts---we will be back!!!! Carol and John Pritchett 206 Manor Blvd Fairhope, AL 36532


My husband and I have passed your beautiful Cross several times. We did not know that there was a place to stop and view it close up. Now that I do know about it, the very next time I am near there I will stop. It is a wonderful sight to see, even if you are just passing by. firstmrst@aol.com


That was the most Blessed thing we have seen in a very long time! Walking thru the cross procession was awesome, especially after just seeing "The Passion". It brought it to life once more what Jesus went thru for us. Dan and Sherri/Allen, Tx


garygourlay2002@yahoo.com,i was their about 4 weeks ago very neet lots of info about jesus. cant wait intill it is done then i will go back and see some more. you guys are doing a great job.


I think this is the most exciting site I have ever seen. I hope everyone will get to see this site. I seen it during the day but I hope to go back and see it at night, Thank you GThurman330@msn.com


I visited the crosses today! It's beautiful! I've never seen anything like it! I think that it really puts things into perspective. Cheryl Rainer cannerainer@yahoo.com


I have been blessed with the opportunity to visit the cross several times. Each time I get such a feeling of awe....that my Savior died so that I might have life eternal. I have knelt, wept, sang praises and just looked in awe as I visited Calvary's Hill. The magnitude of the cross at Groom reminds me of the magnitude of sins that have been covered by the cross. I have also been able to bring others over the last several years to visit the cross in Groom. God Bless your ministry...how awsome it is and how awesome He is. It teaches us that if we just obey the Lord in what he has for us to do....He will give the blessing. Keep on keeping on for the Lord. In Christ Lynn Bryant - Holland, Ohio musicman@glasscity.net


Several years ago my husband , sister in law and I were on our way to a family reunion in Elk City Ok, and here along the road was this beautiful cross, we were going so fast it was there and the I watched for a long spell till I could not see it out the back window. This was such an awesom sight, I have always wondered about this cross, who did it. I received an email from a dear friend in Amarillo Tx. sending this to me. I was so heartened to see this cross once more. I am living in Nebraska since 1991 and live my life in the texas and New Mexico panhandle. I have only seen one other statue along side the road and this was on the salt flats in Utah, But nothin will ever affect me as when I saw this lovely memorial to God. Thank you again dlbates@bbc.net and dlbates @panhandle.net


I never knew this beautiful cross existed.I got to see this creation with a very special person in my life.This was a message from God for the two of us.I want to thank you for this wonderful blessing.I also want to thank Docia for giving me the chance to experience something this special with her.THe cross and her are both amazing.

Hi, God bless you and your families for the great undertaking for God. I don't know if I'll ever get to Texas to see the awesome sight, but it is something that I know has to have an impact on anyone who sees it. I would also like to know if you have the white vinyl crosses for on windows. I was told you may have them with or without the children praying next to them. I would like to get them if they are available. My name is Donna Regoli and my e-mail is : Palady713@yahoo.com I hope to hear from you. God bless you and your family and keep up the awesome job for God!!

Thank you for a wonderful experiance and a beautiful site. May God bless you all. chelimartinez@hotmail.com


My husband and I drive long haul and we stopped the 15th of June. It was such a blessing to walk the stations of the cross and walk the steps of the crusifixtion. Only to think that one man could love man kind so much that the most overwhelming thing is to walk into the empty tomb. And to know that Jesus is alive. Mark & Jacky Cormack

gquinonez@sbcglobal.net Thank you for creating such an awesome tribute to our Lord Jesus. I was in prayer with several friends last evening who were doubting if Jesus was really there for them, and to see this first thing in the morning only confirmed what we prayed for last night! God Bless you and provide you with whatever you need to create more signs of His Kingdom.

MY HUSBAND AND I VISITED THE CROSS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2001. IT WAS THE MOST CALM AND PEACEFUL TIME OF MY TRUCK DRIVING EXPERIENCE. WHEN WE FIRST SET EYES ON THAT AWESOME CROSS IT WAS THE MOST WONDERFUL, SPIRITUAL FEELING EVER! I HOPE TO VISIT AGAIN VERY SOON. MY HUSBAND TELLS MY IT'S JUST AS BEAUTIFUL, AND SPIRITUAL AS IT WAS THE FIRST TIME WE SAW IT. GOD BLESS YOU FOR THIS WONDERFUL GIFT. JIM AND ANITA KEENER


My Mother and I just returned from a trip to Tennessee. Like so many other folks we have driven past the Cross many times but this was our first time to stop. I have a dear friend with cancer and wanted to stop and pray for her. I felt such peace at this site and have never felt closer to our maker. I want to thank the lovely ladies that greet you there, they tell you all about the building of the site and make you feel very welcome. I will stop yearly now, it was a pleasure to be in such a peaceful place.


This is definately a very sacred place. I felt it the moment my husband and I got out of the truck we were in. Thank you so much for this place. I was saved a long time ago and had been away from God and my church for some time and when I saw this and felt the electricity around it I knew instantly what God wanted from me. Thank you for being there and following God's command for you to build this place. I rededicated my life to Christ standing on the steps of Calvary on June 22,2004 just after sunset. There was no better place than there. God bless you and all involved with this wonderous place. I pray that on my next visit I am able to bring my daughters to see it. Stacy Balocm Paragould Arkansas stacybalcom@yahoo.com


This is a great reminder to all travelers to take time out and include Jesus and His Word to their trip along I'40. Mitzi Blasingame


Living only about 40 miles from this beautiful cross, I have been to visit it several times and is a must to take friends and relatives that come to visit. Thank you for this wonderful gift to the world!


lampdna@thegateway.net very nice


I saw this marvelous "CROSS" on Sunday, June 27, 2004 as I was driving west toward Amarillo. I spent nearly 45 minutes taking photos and just being in aww of every thing. God bless you for this wonderful experience. mtcalvbapt01@aol.com


Thank you for the inspirationl work. We must be reminded of Him when our men and women fight for the freedom of others. He died for all us on the cross.


This is an amazing site. Jacksonville, Florida Faith My e-mail address is: jasminelady-80@msn.com


My wife and I were taking our much anticipated trip along Interstae 40 to seem many of the unique sights along old Rt. 66. We saw so many great things, but NONE that moved us nearly as much as the giant cross and sculptures at Groom, TX. We had to pull off of the road (near dusk) to investigate this magnificent sight. As we looked at the various stages of the crucifixion, we would touch the statues of Jesus, wishing in our hearts that it was really Him and that we could have somehow provided comfort to Him in His darkest hour. It was an incredibly moving experience for us both, and I expect that we will be traveling up there again from Austin just to see it again. May God bless those that were inspired to erect this as a love gift to our precious Saviour. Dennis and Teresa Ceder Austin, TX


I think this ministry is great, my husband and I have stopped by a few times and I just love the feeling it gives. Last time we were there was last May and we met a young lady that was having memories of a still born son that she had had. I have also went through the same experience and I gained a feeling of peace when I was there. My husband was born and raised in Amarillo, Tx was transferred to Kansas by the Santa Fe railroad and if he hadn't we never would have met and I would have never seen the wondrous things that have been built there. Thanks & God Bless, Vonnita J. Elliott Topeka,Kansas Kscollegegirl44@hotmail.com


My Granddaughter & I were on our way to Oklahoma from California when we saw the cross and when we came back home we took the time to stop and I am so thankful we did anyone who sees this beautiful sight has to be touched by it it only made me want to draw even closer to our wonderful savior. God Bless You And Your Wonderful Works. Velma Luft Mistydawn249@aol.com


Thank you so much for your gift to the world. Your vision and your effort will bless untold millions and likely lead many to an eternity with the One on the cross. Thanks for making the cross experience just as "free" and undeserved as was the cross experience 2000 years ago. May God bless you richly. Keep on keepin on. don & letha Huddleston donletha@sbcglobal.net

I visited the Cross on 7/11/04 and I thought it was wonderful I did not go in the gift shop I didn't know it was open until I was on my way out and It started raining so I didn't go back. I will visit again. Thank you Stacy Yannazzo from Humble Texas syannazzo@marykay.com


We visited you last Sunday morning. We had not had prayer before leaving our motel room, we stopped at the cross to have our travel prayer. We did not know that we would be even more blessed than we had anticipated. We feel that the Lord had us NOT pray at the motel so that we would discover the true blessing that HE had anticipated us finding at your location. I am so grateful that you have done this for all of us. It was such a blessing to have visited your location. It is my prayer that ALL the people on this whole planet earth visit you and that NO ONE will be left "a lost one" when our LORD comes back to claim HIS. Wouldn't that be a blessing!!!! Satan is trying to make it, right now, so that I cannot complete this by causing my left arm to hurt. I am NOT going to let him, though. I have shared,with others in our hometown,of our blessing at visiting HIS/your sight. One of the ladies in my Sunday School class wants my husband and I to share our testimony,of our trip to your sight, with the rest of our Sunday School class. My boss, who is from Canada and a Cathlic, told me that,at the age of 15 yrs. old to age 16 years old, he was taught the Stations of the Cross. I would like to be kept up with the progress of the completion of the gift shop, etc. if it is at all possible. My e-mail address is: frannies2001@yahoo.com Thank you so much for your time. I do realize that you all are quite busy. I really do appreciate you taking the time to look at, and read, my e-mail. MAY GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just want to express to you the great feeling I had when i saw The Cross I was on my way to Co. and I told my nephew we would stop on the way back home to Alabama and we did it was a Beautiful feeling and experince to have. I plan on stopping at it every time I visit Co.which is at least once a year .I look forward to seeing it at night the next time .Thank you for a wonderful gift to mankind. Elaine Carroll Lincoln Al.


I visited the Cross with friends while on our way to the Grand Canyon. The peace and joy that filled our hearts while we were on this holy ground was unimaginable. May God continue to bless everyone who visits such an awesome sight. From LA


I visited the Cross on May 30th 2004 and had no idea such a place existed. I was traveling back to New Jersey from New Mexico and stopped. I was so moved and I prayed hard for my nephew to come home from Baghdad. He has finally made it after 14 months! I love talking about the cross and showing my pictures. Thank you for having such a place! juderow@msn.com


Hi I was doing a bit of cleaning and found the flyer that the attendant passes out when you visit the Cross, and I finally visited the website. I've passed the Cross a million times, it seems, in my travels for work. (I live in OKC, but I do most of my work in W. Texas, NM, and Colorado.) I finally stopped one cold and windy day in March. I was profoundly touched. Not so much by the sheer size of it, although I know that tons (literally!!) of work went into it, but by the Memorial to the Unborn that was there. Of course, the nearly life-sized Stations were wonderful too. Heck, the whole thing is just great! I wish you the best of luck in your ministry, and I have included you in my Rosary intentions. God Bless, and thank you! Chet Kelly lonevoice@catholicweb.com


breathtaking!! ugly@ctaz.com


My girls (10&4) and I were traveling from Fairfax, Ok. back to EL Paso Tx. When we saw the cross for the first time we were amazed by it's beauty. We stopped and took pictures and my 4 year-old still hasn't stopped talking about our experience. stellahenry2003@yahoo.com


Ladyhotrod1965@yahoo.com My husband drives a truck for Tyson Transportation out of Oxford, AL. We were recently out to Groom, TX. And the sight was amazing , it is so neat what all they have done. I can't wait to view it again. God Bless You All .


The cross and your work are amazing. It was one of my mothers favorite places on this earth, though she did not live to see it completed she was amazed each and every time she saw a new addition. I can feel her next to me each and every time I visit the cross to check on its newest addition. From my mother and my family thanks for giving us a little touch of "HEAVEN ON EARTH"..RICK MORRIS AND FAMILY TXANGEL23@JUNO.COM


I really want to Thank God for giving you the idea to build this awesome cross. I visited not long ago and when I got out of my car I felt the most wonderful peace come over me. Back years ago, when I was much younger, I was forced to have an abortion. When I went to the tomb for the unborn I began to think about the abortion and why it had to happen the way it did. I felt as if God was there speaking right to me telling me he forgives me and that it is all going to be ok. I have been blessed two children in my life and I thank God for those gifts. I was once told if God gives you a gift you should love it and take care of it. I now know that he could have chose not to give me another chance at motherhood because of me not taking care of the first gift he gave me. I talk to people ( young girls ) that are thinking about having abortions and try to talk them out of it. I let them know about all the people in the world that would love a child but are unable to have them. I just hope and pray that what I tell these girls makes a difference. Thank you- J. D. trouble7371@hotmail.com


I have had the opportunity to visit the Cross a few times, each time I am amazed at the changes, you guys have an awesome vision and I know that God will provide the funds. This place is a wonderful Memorial to our Saviour. God Bless You All.....


To all my sisters and brothers in Christ, I hope you and those you pass this on too will enjoy this as much as I have. My dear friend Marty Monreal, visit the cross and had a wonderful experience. God Blessing always Julia


I just heard about THE CROSS today from a co-worker that had seen it this summer. My wife and I definitely plan to visit your wonderful proclamation of the LIVING CHRIST. The co-worker was telling me about the Tomb of the Unborn and then showed me a picture of Christ holding the fetus. I got chills just looking and thinking about it. May God continue to bless your ministry. cdoveking@sbcglobal.net


The cross was so real to me. Hoping I can see the crosses everywhere. Thanks for giving the world something so marvelous. My e-mail is lil_red-demon@cox.net


My Wife and I stopped twice, on our way to the West Coast and back. This Cross was important because after 70 years I had converted to Christianity, much to the happiness of my Wife and Family. I left some info on my book, Mortal Angels. Under the Chapter, "Every Church Has Two Doors", I included the beauty, love, Faith, and the info on the Church. The Book will be going to pub soon. I will send you a copy. This Web Site has all of our Church in happy tears! God Bless ALL! David H. Fekay davidslegs@verizon.net


Forgive me! I meant info on The CROSS! I also did not mention that I was the bi-lateral amputee. Again, our Prayers in Christ. David H. Fekay davidslegs@verizon.net


The first time I saw the Cross I didn't really know what I was seeing. It was early morning & still somewhat dark. It was also foggy & with the lights shining on it it looked like it went straight up to Heaven. I will never forget that, it was so beautiful. I've been there a couple of times since either to or from Ohio. There is another one that looks the same from the hi-way in Effingham, IL. Was that one built by the same people? Thank You for sharing something so moving. The website it wonderful but there in nothing like being there. God Bless You (jhtucson41@aol.com)


I have a lot of respect for what you have "built", for the world to see and to take a step closer to Jesus and feel that you are there with him, at least in spiirt. I hope some day to come see this, a friend of mine sent this to me during their vacation and I will forward it on to my friends. Thank You!....oldiedancer@yahoo.com


My friend visited your cross and shared with me. I appreciate what you are doing and will pass this along to my Christian friends. Thanks. peavyhouset@k12tn.net

When I first saw the cross it was from I-40 with my father and a friend and at the time I was headed towards Arkansas to meet the love of my life, a few months later I returned to be married, he is in the tucker prison, in Ark. On the way back home I stopped and I thought I saw and felt Heaven right here on earth, I never new such a beautiful blessing existed, I couldn't believe how humbling it was, I cried. I got home and as soon as I could I told my new husband about it, when he gets out which I pray is soon we plan to go and see it together. There are not enough words to say how thankful and blessed I feel for having gone by and stopped, and how blessed it was for you to do this and to share with the rest of the world. Thank you for the peaceful blessings and for sharing. JerryAshbysAngel@aol.com


My family and I were moving from California to Mississippi with my sister after a huge family crisis. I was very unsure of such a huge step in my life, seeing the cross and stopping to look at all the stations and the shroud gave me some hope to continue without fear, I knew that the lord would never give me more than I could handle and that sometimes bearing the worst (like our crisis) is a lesson to be learned. Thank you for such a spiritually uplifting experience. Your WEBSITE ROCKS TOO!!!!


While visiting family in Pampa, TX, We saw this wonderful site and stopped to visit. This is truly a fantastic place. God Bless you. Tommy & Sandy Fergerson sandygirl36@yahoo.com


We were so amazed at this structure and statues. We would like to know more about who the sculturer was and whose idea the original cross was. It is great. Wayne & Sammie Doering Clarendon, Texas 79226 waynedoering@msn.com

This was sent to me at the most precious time, my husband and I had just yesterday watched, "The Passion of The Christ".... I am speechless all over again.... YES, OUR LORD LIVES! If we are ONLY WILLING to give HIM our lives, what lives we live! Praise God, Thank you Steve and Bobby and your family.... God has blessed many through your obediance to HIM! Timothy and Kathleen Oerman, Waynesboro, Georgia koerman@bellsouth.net


My brother-in-law & sister-in-law, shared their visit to the cross with me, I can't wait to come & visit. Thank God that some places aren't afraid of showing their faith and sharing with others. To the politicians of Groom: please don't ever let the opinion of a few effect the showing of the cross.


Very beautiful and inspirational. A wonderful way to proclaim your love of the Lord to thousands. gatornana1@aol.com


Having seen this page forwarded to me from a very sweet lady and family friend. My wife and I had just returned from evening worship service when checking the mail this wonderful witness to Jesus opened to thankful hearts that caring people provided this permanent picture of Christian love. Thank you... artmary42@kon-x.com


I was reminded how much the hand of God is upon Steve Thomas as I looked at this web site again! It says in the word that many are called but few are chosen. This is a vessel of the Lord that has been chosen for the Father's Plans and Purposes for this hour and I praise God for him and his family! May the blessings of the Lord continue to overtake him and may the Lord's Face continue to shine upon him! In His Lavished Love and Infinite Grace, Mindy Samblanet (Naples, Florida)


We just came through Groom, TX. and stopped at the cross. It was so beautiful. What a blessing. We hope to come back sometime and visit again. It was thoroughly a refreshment for our souls for our trip was because of a death in the family. Thank you for being such a blessing. Pmiles@direcway.com


My dad sent me pictures and I thought it was wonderful. But last week I got to see it in person and it is truely breath taking. How wonderful..........thank you. faithful2jc1976@yahoo.com


fgarcia@cswnet.com I was coming back from the Lubbock prison, I had just met a 25yr. old half brother, whom I did not know he existed, until two weeks ago, when someone called me to tell me; that he is in jail and is critically ill-with liver cancer, stage four, and wanted to meet me! Oh, my God! How my life changed! My husband was driving me back, I was so emotionally affected, that I did not even see the cross. I was crying, and my husband, said "Look, look at that cross!" I put up my head and asked him if we could stop to see it. We did, and we wondered at the site for about two hours, after we left there, I felt conforted, and I realized, once again, HOW GREAT GOD IS!! Thank you, very much for this place! God Bless You! Martin & Felipa Garcia Clarksville, Arkansas


I was in North West Texas working this week and had a store in Groom, TX to visit. As I drove down I40 I saw THE most amazing thing I had ever seen. This cross standing TALL out in the middle of nowhere. I asked the store clerk about it and she suggested I stopped by. The way I was going I could only see the cross, not the stations, Calvary, the tomb, and the fountain. I am SOOOOO glad I did stop to see everything. It was VERY moving, words cannot describe the feeling I got when pulling up to the Cross and then the feeling I got while walking around to the stations and up to the Calvary. AMAZING!! Jennifer Martinez - Pasadena, TX


Your web site is really nice and informative... Thanks so much! 


We stopped by the CROSS on Route 40 in TX in January 2000 on our return trip from CA to VA. It was a sight to behold. It is forever embedded in our minds eye. Thank you for Sharing Christ Jesus Our Saviour with Every Eye that pass'es by even if they do not stopped. God Bless You, Harold & Jean Layne VA Jlayne63@aol.com


I have been there 5 different times and each trip is a blessing no one can imagine until they visit. My first time I saw the "Cross" from miles away lighting the sky. A beauty to behold. At that time it was the cross and tombstone for the unborn/aborted babies. Breath Taking. I asked so many questions about what was to come and how it started. What a precious mission. Each time I came back much more was done and more breath taking. In sharing with a friend tonight I mentioned we should pull it up on the web and see if it was there and sure enough. The music and "Peace" in this site is AWESOME. I will be back to see the new things I have not seen. I was told about the tomb and the angels coming and now it's there. You'll shed some tears, smile, pray and spend a time of "Peace" you don't believe can happen. Blessings of Love and Peace to those that made it all happen. We all know who led the mind and heart on this mission. Judy Ann Clark - judyann@multiband.tv


I visited there a week after September 11. I was living in Trinidad CO, I was homesick after all the chaos of 9/11. My mom and dad wanted to pick me and my small children up, but we didn't know where to meet out in the middle of nowhere. Then I remembered the awesome largest cross I had seen on the way to Colorado. We met at the Cross. What a wonderful time we had. The Cross will always be in my heart. It brought me such great peace at a terrible time. THANK YOU!!!!! Amanda Burchfield Pryor, OK


I just went by your site in Groom TX, and I have to tell you it was awesome...You have done something that everyone should know about.. God bless you Patricia Welborn Taft, California


What a wonderful and inspiring sight to see!!


We stopped here yesterday, Oct 10, 2004, on our way home from Amarillo, Texas to Oklahoma City. It was raining when we got there, But I am so glad we decided to get out and walk around even in the rain and cold weather. It is a beautiful place and we hope to come back another time! The Ward Family, Oklahoma


We were coming back from Oklahoma City with our daughter and her family and stopped to see the cross. What a sight! I am planning to take my mother sometime soon. Thank You! emma@ptsi.net


I can't express the wonderful blessing this cross was for me. :) I was a weary traveler and I got rest and so much more!! We were on our way home to Illinois and saw the great tornado. On the way to Nevada we saw it and made a plan to stop on the way back. Unfortunately it was early in the a.m. so we would have probably missed it if it wasn't for the sight of the "tornado" We went and saw the outside things and by the time we left the sun and "Son" was shining. :) I walked the stations with my Jesus and even reached out and wiped the tears (rain?) away as He has done for me so many times. What an experience!! He did it for me and here I was with the capability to wipe his tear away and cry with Him. I can't wait to order a book to find out the history of this cross. I inquired about it and one lady at a rest area explained quite a bit which I only grew more fascinated with. Thanks again and God Bless!!!!


I just visited the Crosses last week and found them to be very inspiring. I have been telling everyone about them. Took lots of pictures.


My husband and I were so blessed to be able to stop and see The Cross. We live in Vinton Iowa and I have told our church family about it and told them to go to the website. During the service today a woman asked me about the stairway to heaven that we saw. It touched her heart so much and she asked me if we had a picture of it. She wanted one and with tears she said, "I want to walk up that stairway". I don't know if you had a picture of it or not since we could only see it at night. If there is one could you let me know. I have to get one for this woman that loves her Lord so much. We pray for your ministry all the time and are so thankful that it is there. I don't ride with my husband all the time now, but when he has a delivery in Amarillo he stops by and we give as often as we can. We would love to see one built here in Iowa. What a blessing that would be. It's always a blessing to go to The Cross and truly feel the Lords prescience there.


This was the most amazing thing I have ever saw. The closest thing to Heaven...Thank You very much for the obedience for God...I tell everyone about the website...And maybe soon my church will get to go...God Bless your hearts richly. Keisha,Oklahoma


My friend sent this to me. I think it is so awesome that you would do this for all of us. I can't put it into words of how this all makes me feel. It was great. I will plan a trip just to go there. I have to it it in person. It moved me on the computer just think what it will do to me in person. Thank you so much.


Thank you for making this site available to so many people all over the world at the very sad time we are going through right now. God will bless your family for this deed to share all the Christian meaning of the cross of love


Hi My name is Carolyn. My husband and I pass by there about a week ago on our way home and we stopped. It was really awesome and very emotional to look. I took pictures but I didn't get them all. Do you have pictures of each station and the passages to each one all in order. If you please let me know. I would like to buy them if you do. My e-mail address is thebernards@powernet.org


A niece told me about this website. This is a great, encouraging piece of art in our confused and helpless world -- so unconcerned about our good God and all He has done for us. thanks much!


I just wrote about my niece telling me about this and failed to sign my message. I am rosenhamers@adorers.org

My niece and her mom recently stopped and took pictures...until she showed me the pictures I had no idea this was even there...I can hardly wait to travel one day to see it myself.


I visited the Cross in 2001 on my way to California and was amazed and loved it. I had taken some pictures and have since joined a church here in Ky. where I live and share with the members the experience of this. Thank you again. God Bless. Leonard Costanzo (wyaatt@bellsouth.net)


beautiful cross and the photos of Jesus journey to the cross are awe inspiring. We need more sites like this to keep us thinking straight.


AWESOME EVEN SEEN ON THE COMPUTER....A WORK OF ART. HOPE TO SEE IT IN PERSON SOME DAY......


This is a beautiful site, and I wish we had known about it sooner. We were on a trip and thru that area on Hwy 27 just a couple weeks ago. Didn't even know that we only missed it by a few miles; would have loved to have seen it. Blessings on you for sharing it with us. Sandy sandyforlee@juno.com


THIS WAS AWESOME. MY THE LORD BLESS YOU AND YOUR MINISTRY. A friend told me about this site. wilmore304@yahoo.com

Hope begins at the CROSS. kingclaude@excite.com


A friend of ours is a truck driver and he drove by this beautiful cross. He then called me on his cell phone to give me the internet address and exclaim how beautiful the cross is. It is so beautiful and I am so happy to hear that 1,000 people see it daily. I am sure it touches each heart as each person drives by. May God bless your family and continue to bless the families as they come in and worship. I hope to come see it in person some day. Thank You very much for having the vision and completing it so all may see Jesus and his suffering for our sake. In God's Love, Carol K. Greer, Greenville, SC (Ckgreer@aol.com)


Hello y'all, I had my awe-inspiring, if not frightening and hair-raising experience with the Cross of Groom, TX on the late night/early morning of Oct. 7th. I was driving my mother back to her family in Toledo, IA from Phoenix, AZ. Our goal was to make it to Oklahoma City on the first leg of or journey. Of course, we took I-40. Well, it was after midnight as we left Amarillo. Upon reaching Groom, it was cloudy and rainy. I started seeing what looked like a long, skinny funnel in the distance touching the ground with what looked like swirling dust at its base. I pulled off the highway near an overpass to stop and make sure that wasn't a twister. The last thing I wanted to do was run into a Texas twister in the middle of the night. I noticed that the clouds did not look like the type to spawn a twister. Thus reassured, we continued on warily and that's when we noticed that it was the Cross, backlit with a powerful spotlight that projected the cross' shadow into the clouds. After our heart-pounding encounter with the Cross, we continued on our safe journey to Oklahoma City, and eventually to Toledo, Iowa. Loring (fishbone3925@netzero.net)


a friend of mine has a picture of this cross as his buddy icon for IM and i asked him what exactly it was and upon telling me it was the largest cross in the US, a google search led me here. I'm definitely taking a road trip sometime PS. I'm glad there's a memorial to all those lost to abortion. "As a former fetus, I oppose abortion"


God bless you for your wonderful tribute and gift to all those who have seen and will see this site...we visited for the first time on our way home from NY to AZ. We'd passed the cross several years running and since we were going East most times, we thought we'd stop one time in the future...this November was 'that time in the future' for us...the weather was extremely windy and dark as we stopped and got out of our car. I had my camera with me and extra film...we had no idea what we were coming to see...we only saw the cross in passing and on occasion, people were there. We thought, perhaps, this was a war memorial...we had no clue...we could not make out the stations of the cross 'til we were 'there.' With the weather so cold and windy and darkened by cloud cover, one could imagine what it must've been like at Calvary on the day of our Lord's crucifixion. It was quite REAL for us and an experience we won't soon forget. We will forward this website and information to our family and friends to let them in on our much-treasured experience...you can be sure we will send our own donation and we're sure others of ours will as well...again...may He bless you all. You may email us at smore10144@cox.net. Sue & Ray Morelli


I LIVE IN CLAYMONT DELAWARE AND I WAS VISITING AMARILLO, TEXAS AND MY FAMILY WENT TO SEE THE CROSS. I WAS SICK SO I STAYED BACK BUT, THEY TOOK PICTURES OF EVERY THING FOR ME AND, JUST THE PICTURES MADE ME CRY. I AM SENDING ALL THE PICTURES OF THE CROSS TO MY FAMILY OVER THE INTERNET. MY E-MAIL IS leelenkie@yahoo.com someone said you have the same thing in Pennsylvania. do you


I got your web address from my dad, Love the sight and the cross is great, will have to make a trip to see it. Thank you,


Just received your card from Ted Stecher at Keswick singles weekend. My email address is hummingbird7b@netzero.net


We were blessed to visit your Cross Ministry several years ago. It was a very touching experience. I regularly pray for your financial support to increase so you can bless more people and I pray for all the travelers who have not yet stopped. God bless you. C. & J. Paslay, Springfield, OR>


WOW! What an amazing witnessing tool. I pray the Lord continues to use this wonderful ministry. GOD BLESS! In HIS name, Camela Hodsdon Florida


My son and I visited your site 5 years ago and we were overwhelmed. I happened on this web site and will spread the word. This is something everyone should experience...they will be moved! Thank you for your momument to our Lord. Debi Fraser


I am in awe of these images. I would love to visit.


I am in awe of these images. I would love to visit.


In 1987, my wife, Sue found the Lord. In Feb. 2000, Sue was diagnosed with Carcinoid cancer. That fall, we took a 6-week cross country trip and heading home along Rt. 40, found The Cross by accident. What an awesome sight. It was one of the major highlights of our trip, rivaling the grand canyon and other natural scenery. In Nov. 2003, Sue went home with her Lord, but we both remember the cross. Thank you for your work. Jim W. sweiveris@aol.com www.carcinoid.us


Eight people from my church in Sherman,TX were on our way home from a mission trip in New Mexico. Our driver got on interstate 40 by mistake (we thought) and we saw this enormous Cross coming up out of the prarie. It was an incredible sight. We stopped and spent some time there. It was amazing. The feeling I got when I entered the empty tomb is indescribeable. Sometimes the mistakes we make end in a huge blessing. Thanks to all who have had a hand in the constuction of this wonderful place. Amy Hampton albarrett@texoma.net


Hi, One of our center's volunteer went on a mission trip to New Mexico with her church last week. On the way back, their driver made a "wrong" turn ... they were needing to get to 287, but got on I40 going east. Of course, they saw your Cross, stopped, and went through it. She called me yesterday all excited and gave the website to go view what I have missed. It is so impressive and inspirational... especially the tombstone in memory of the unborn with Jesus holding a baby in His hands. Because that's what this ministry is all about... talking to girls about their Options... not their choice. So, I have a question for you. When did Project Cross begin and when was the date of the dedication. I see the pictures but could find no information about the dates. The reason for my interest is that I just read documentation reporting that 15 Planned Parenthood facilities have been closed since 1996 in the Panhandle alone. As you see, I'm wondering if there is any correlation between the Cross Ministries and the closing of the PP offices. Thank you for your response. Melva Kittrell Director Pregnancy Care Medical Center Sherman, TX 75090 903-893-9099 pccot@pregnancy-help.org December 7, 2005


Great work! I was thrilled to visit there last week. Fantastic!


Just after the cross had been put in place and did not yet have lights, we were returning home late late one evening from a trip to TN and it was very dark and stormy. As we got close to Groom we could only see visions of the Cross as the lightening flashed behind the cross in the darkest of night. It was more than just awesome but greater still was the thrill to see the cross and not see my Jesus there and to know he had risen. We lost our son this Feb. and it is so great to see that cross and know that what ever he did wrong in this life, he did believe in Jesus, we know that cross tells us "Forgiven". What a place he is in now! Thank you so much for hearing your Master's voice and following his request. Prayers, Raylin


Praise God for the work you all have done and for the way the Lord is going to use this for his glory. Thank you all for your love of God and your dedication to him. My e-mail address is: brenny44@nuwavenet.com. Sincerely, Brenda Johnson


Groom is my birth place. I visit there as often as I can, and try to visit THE CROSS with each visit. I am always so inspired, even to the point of tears. What a wonderful place to lay your burdens. The feeling that I receive and that anyone that visits THE CROSS will receive seems to overpower any burden. This is a must see for all people, Christian and non-Christian alike. To see and to witness through thoughtful workmanship what God in the person of Jesus Christ did for us is breathtaking. Thank you Mike Thomas, and all involved in this tribute to God's love and indeed to all mankind. The Britten Family--Anadarko, Oklahoma g_britten@sbcglobal.net


We want to say thank you for The Cross Ministry. My daughter and husband a few years ago while traveling through Texas discovered The Cross from the interstate and stopped to see and found the marvelous display. On our family ski trip to Pagosa, Colorado from home Fredonia, Ky. we drove through Texas so we could see The Cross and how moved we were and so thankful we did. It was dark at 3:00 AM in the morning of Dec 27 and not able to take picture of all and building not open to see about pamphlets so I would like to know if you have a pamphlet on The Cross you could mail me. I would like to know more about the construction and also pictures to show others and our church members and encourage any if ever near there to drive to see The Cross which is well worth anyone's time. Very inspiring. Thank you. Phelps' of Fredonia, KY. mail to K. Phelp 4147 US Highway, Fredonia, KY 42411


I really enjoyed being there this past Saturday. I didn't get to spend as much time there as I would have liked, I was on my way home. I told my husband about it and we are planning to come with our children and really spend some time there and get to look at everything. I really appreciate what you have done, it is really a blessed place. God bless you, Michelle Alvarado. mlalvarado@aol.com

thank you!


I'm a native Texan now living in California. My hometown is Lubbock...not that far away, but I knew nothing about the site until I received an email from a friend in South Texas with your website. It is truly amazing and something I plan to add to my places to visit. God Bless You All! Sincerely, Bob Wassom - Dublin, CA. wassbob1@comcast.net


Will be there to see it this summer


Just found out that a friend of our son worked on this project. What a testimony to the passing millions. We are looking forward to seeing this in person. We were amazed when we just heard about it since we are native Texans, living all around the state, but now in California. 1-27-05 sjwasswolfe@comcast.com


Steve and Bobby, It's amazing how God has touched your lives and used your testimony to reach others. Steve you sent me the pictures several years ago while I was still in Arkansas, but they don't do justice to what the cross looks like now. I'm in Atlanta now and haven't been back to Borger in several years. Long time since Cominco (Agrium). Awesome website and truly great what you and your family have done. Rick Wassom - rwwassom@gapac.com


I would like to know if you have any cross with necklace please send me and show me the pictures of necklace I want so I can order.. please thank you very much.. we did visited there we still loves to visit there some time bill and winona heinz


Wow, I just moved from California to Mississippi. What a hard thing for me to do, leave the only home i've known my whole life, all my family and friends. I didn't have a desire to stop anywhere on the way down the 40 except for gas, until i saw the cross and my heart lept with joy. I HAD to pull over and take a look. Thank the Lord it was free because I didn't have much extra in my budget. As I walked around I could feel the spirit of God all around and I had tears in my eyes. I was blessed. It gave me hope and strength to continue on my journey. Thank You for your ministry.


I was told of the cross by a friend in a christian chat room one morning, immediately following the death od a very dear friend. I was given the web site and it reminded me that death is not the end for the believer, but only the beginning...Praise God !! We do hope to visit the site in person as soon as possible...Thank You for sharing the love of Christ with everyone who would like to experience it for themselves... Clayton Royal., N,C.


I CAN REMEMBER WHEN THE CROSS WENT DOWN THE ROAD. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS PAGE AS I AM UNABLE TO GO THERE AGAIN. I NO LONGER LIVE IN TEXAS SO THIS WEB SIGHT IS GREAT. GOD BLESS, SHEILA twobeecools3@verizon .net


This had to be one of the most heartening experiences we ever had. DO NOT MISS THIS IF YOU ARE GOING 40 THROUGH TEXAS !!! PT and Diane FBSPTS@CS.com


A friend told me about this cross. Someday I would like to see it. I hope this makes others stop and think of the real reason we have this cross. God Bless all. JBHild@aol.com Biloxi Ms


I live in Oklahoma, and my husband and I have seen the cross many times as we have driven to the west coast. It has special meaning to me now because the cross was taken off of the Seal of the City of Edmond Oklahoma, because of lawsuits by athiests. These same people tried to have the large cross put up by on church property adjacent to I-35 in Edmond, Oklahoma removed, but failed. What a tremendous symbol this is for us all who believe. As Paul says in 1st Corinthians 1:18 , "The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God" (NIV) Cynthia Ray


I have been to Groom, Texas before. It is a wonderful place to be. I really enjoyed myself. It was so much fun.


Hi Dear Friends, I recently travled from Ca to Ky, My daughter had ask me to get a picture of the cross for her. We had been by it before and was amazed at how large it was. I did not know just what I was about to expeirence, I had only planned to get pictures from the interstate. Little did I know, God planned for a visit to the cross. I could see small figures around and decided to go by. My visit was amazing, the walk around the statues is one of overwhelming guilt, that Jesus died for ME why would he go through all that for someone like myself who is not worthy.Please forgive me for not being who I should of been to keep you from the suffering. What you suffered for me, I am thankful but ashamed. I was so touched by the presence of God, I have always known that he loved me and that Jesus died on the cross for me. Being there was like watching Jesus go through it all over again, I guess as he cries for the lost he is still giong through the suffering. I hope that you all get a chance to visit the cross. Jesus is Lord


My husband and I were really touched by this truly magnificient place. May God continue to bless you in your ministry. The Oliver Family Lancaster, SC May, 2004


Outstanding!!! Can't wait to see it in person! Thank you, Rose


Outstanding!!! Can't wait to see it in person! Thank you, Rose Rosea-bear@juno.com


We live in Minnesota, however we have stopped and visited this Cross on two occasions. It is unbelievable, and makes every fiber of your body feel numb and humbled. It is so wonderful to live in this time in history and marvel at the accomplishment of man. Providing this wonderful Cross in the middle of the high plains of Texas giving all that pass the freedom to stop and say a few Prayers and keep in touch with the Sacrifice that Jesus made for us. I surely want to thank the Thomas family for their professional skills and dedication in making this possible. In Oklahoma on I-35, at one of the Edmond exits, there is a simular Cross, although smaller. I wonder if it was modeled after this one? Gscott28@juno.com


I have visited the cross and for the life of me I couldn't remember where it was. I had stopped to take pictures of the different things there and I was so overwhelmed I couldn't take any more pictures. As I came to the station where Christ was upon the cross, I couldn't even look at his face=. I was so ashamed of my whole life. I will not say I went out and was saved and baptized immediately but I will say that that was a significant event in my life. I currently stationed in IRAQ and will be home in just a few days and I will be baptized as soon as possible. I want to thank the Lord for inspiring this awesome monument. Milburn Ray Matthews


I love the cross that you put up at Groom Texas. When I'm up that way I'll be sure to stop by and see it in person. May God continue to bless you richly. ms. karen brooks


I would like to see this beautiful place someday. A wonderful inspiration, I look at this site each morning before I start my day. S. Alexander, Bowling Green, Ky.


Thank you for a beautiful site. We visited the sight a year ago and plan to visit again during the month of July 2005 giptoy@charter.net


I have lived in Panhandle Texas forever and driven by the cross numerous times. The first time I visited a couple of years ago I was truly touched. I was brought to tears at its awesomeness. I visited again today on my way to Oklahoma. No words can begin to describe the feelings you have when you are there in the midst of such an awesome sight. The feelings of forgiveness, peace and humbleness are unbelievable. This cross and the ministries of the Thomas Family are truly what we need in today's society and times. It seems people so easily forget why we even exist. Thank you for bringing such an inspiring place to the Texas Panhandle and Interstate-40....May everyone who encounters the cross truly be blessed in some way.


You did a wonderful job.  My girl friend and I stoped to see the cross and had a great time and will come back soon. Thank you txtrker76705@yahoo.com

I usually drive home from my parents house by 287 but decided on a whim to take I-40. I am so glad I did! The Cross was such an inspiration! My kids and I loved it. Next time I am taking my camera! jennisis1@yahoo.com


Thank you very much. It is beautiful. The statue of Mary holding Jesus is so m,ediatative and moving. May God bless you for your love and conviction. Sister Thomasina Marie Halloran, RSM sthomasina@stdots.org


I have visited the Cross twice. The first time was on a cold night after making a trip to Kansas to check on my father. The experince was a very moving one and especially when I entered the tomb, which I was hesitant to do. My two daughters and I visited it on 3-14-05 and it was wonderfull to see the new additions that have been made. My oldest daughter has visited the Cross before, but it was the first time for my youngest. I could tell that it had an effect on her,especially the tomb she didn't want to go by herself. I would just like to praise and thank everyone that has been a part of this wonderfull gift to God and his people. Especially to the person that God touched to give the inspiration to make such a project.May God Bless all who have a part of this project and may God keep the people coming to be Blessed by this Spirtiual exhibit. Respectfully, The Weeks Family e-mail:mountendew@msn.com


We visited The Cross on Friday March 11, 2005 and found it to be truly Inspirational and Awesome. Also enjoyed your Website. Keep up the Good Work. Glen & Linda Markusson - glmark@sasktel.net


A friend sent this website to me, and I was in awe. It was so moving and touching to read about this beautiful site. My eyes filled with tears, and I became so aware of the Holy Spirit's presence as I read the comments. I can't wait to go see this in person. We serve an awesome God, and he works through his people in such beautiful ways. pink_flamingo98@hotmail.com


My sister sent me the link to view the info about the "Cross" that was built in your city. Bless her heart for that... she has buried two sons and a husband and this site touched her very much. It has taken me a while to come back and sign your quest book for I was so moved and passed the link to friends first ,then went to pray. I ended up praying myself to sleep. I then came back to look at this site again! You see, I want to travel there to see this so bad... I hunger to visit the "Cross" and I pray it's God's will for me to make it there some day soon. May the good Lord provide my transportation and finances to make it there. AMEN! Bless you all who had a part in this project. twinoaksrmt@bellsouth.net


This site is very peaceful, nice, provides happiness...and I am more then sure God loves it too. My chances of coming there are little due to my job...Defence force, but...my faith is big, and I never give up for my god...


Thank you for letting us visit. We have never seen anything so beautiful and i love this song. I hope to come again one day. When we saw the cross we did not know all the other was there so thank you so much and GOD BLESS YOU ALL.I think God and my daughter for seeing this great place i will never forget it i am going to copy this because i could not afford the picture they had at the store. It was very nice to the statue of Jesus was beautiful we loved it so much we all have to be thankful for Jesus giving us live.Thank you again!


Thank you Karen S. Salsberry in Kirksville Missouri 63501


As my mother and myself passed through the town of pampa, my mother and I looked up and saw the beautiful cross that was standing there next to the highway. The whole day it was cold and windy, cloudy and did I mention cold. Anyways, when we pulled up to the Cross all of a sudden the sun began to shine. I do believe it was the best part of our trip. I was in awe of the tour I went on around the cross. After we left the cross that day we saw a rainbow, which means, a promise and new beginning. It was truly a blessing seeing the cross. God bless! Rhea and Shelia of Durant, OK.


I have been to the Groom cross many times, mostly at night when I am traveling in from or to Amarillo. It is an awesome wonder. God Bless You All. Your sister in Christ, Rhonda Pitts Sayre, OK smilie928@hotmail.com


This was an awesome sight! with so much of God being taken out of our country, public schools and community's, it is powerful to see such a message to the world for all to see this monument of such a surpreme sacrifice that was made for us all. Thank you so much it has touched our families far and wide who have seen the cross by email or visited it in person,for some it has made them stop and think about God and for others a great reminder of the awesome debt that was made for our salvation. Again thank you and God bless your ministries.Angelean_dozier@msn.com


Absolutely marvelous and wonderful. God bless us all. mariasaldanagarcia@yahoo.com


I am truly moved by what God and you achieved, Mike


Going through the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday has never been so moving. My children and I were very touched. The Divine Mercy fountain was amazing. Thank you for having the faith to build such a wonderful place on the Texas Plains.


I had quite a treat while visiting the Cross. i was with another driver and we were on our way to Grand Junction, Colorado. to deliver 2 school busses to them, I had my Grandson with me in the bus. We had driven from Conway, Arkansas and stopped at the last rest stop in Oklahoma. I lost my purse while we were there. Our busses were governed at 55 miles per hour so it was taking forever. When we reached near the cross the other driver ask shall we stop and check this Cross out. We had passed it sever times in the past in our journies. so I radioed back to her and said yes. We then left the Hiway and pulled in and that's when I discovered that I didn't have my purse. Oh boy! It was 76 miles back to the rest area, and we flewas fast as my bus would go. All the while I prayed and cried at the thought of My money and ameripass drivers license and everything would be there, My grandson kept assuring me that we would find it. when we got there and starting searching trash cans hoping whoever had found it simply removed the money and tossed it into the trash, well no luck we found. we were headed toward one last trash can and a lady called to us that there was a note attatched to the wall with duck tape about a found purse we quickly returned to where she was and there was the note. Purse found check across Hwy at Welcome Center. so My Grandson and I proceeded to cross Interstate 40 to the Center and when we walked in the lady ask are you by chance looking for a purse, which I quickly answered OH YES> they had already put it in envelope to mail to me. everything was safe and sound nothing missing. I found out that a cleaning lady had found and turned it in. I tried to reward her but they insisted that she would not take anything because she was only doing her Job. We left and returned to the Cross to regain the other bus which we had left. and when we got there we we wet into the gift shop and I donated the money that I intended to give to the lady named Joyce to the ministry in Her name. I have never failed to stop at the cross in my Journies since and I told everyone about my story and that they need to visit the Cross. Show me the Cross and I'll find my way home has been with me since. Thank you so much for building th MIGHTY CROSS, I will forever be AWE of it and cherish my trip to the Cross R.Gayle Hallman and Grandson Jimmie Thanks so much

The artistry is wonderful. I would have loved to enjoy the inscriptions; but the white print blends too much into the background--I couldn't read it & I was unable to highlight it in order to better read. Allison rv35@charter.net www.35rv.com


Most impressive site, I am so sorry I didn't know about this when I was visiting the States regularly,, I am an Australian but am married to an American disabled navy veteran, maybe there will another chance for me to come see for myself, thank you for all your great work ,In His Name,,, cassandra_4ice@yahoo.com

My family and I will be coming to the Cross next weekend, April 8, 9, and 10. We will be attending a wedding in Amarillo. So, we plan to stop and see it again. This is truly God's work. We want to thank you for taking Him seriously when he told you to do this. So many people hear His voice but don't act on it. May God bless you, your family and all the workers that have been working on this. De Colores, Belinda Knipp bkrosebud67@sbcglobal.net


Great Reminder of what Jesus did for us. Sandra Moore; skmoore@bwoodtx.com


I have a story to tell you. I have never been in your area to see the cross, but my dad has, only a couple of days ago in fact. I never knew my Dad, he and my mother were never married to each other, they both had failing marraiges when they met. Dad is 86 years old, I am 58 years old and I decided a few weeks ago to make contact with him, nervously. When I tried to get his Arizona phone number, I wasn't able, so I left mine with people who knew him. Long story short, he phoned me himself promptly, and was delighted to hear from me. We talked by phone nearly everynight since then. He told me that on April 1st, he was going to leave Arizona and return to Wisconsin where I've lived all my life. He headed out as planned, and drove past your cross. He said he had to stop there, and called me from there in tears. He said he had to call me from that Holy Place. He had been bitter over my mother, and the fact that she never let either of us know (Dad or I) about our blood relationship and so we lost so many years. Today, here we are, him with prostrate cancer, and I in remission with breast/lung cancer, realizing there is no time for holding on to the past hurts, it is a time for mending fences. I know not where all this will lead, but I know it has to be good....because the Lord arranged it, I'm sure of that. Lastnight, my dad arrived in Wisconsin, and I went with my husband to meet him for the first time. It was wonderful... and it was then that he gave me your cassette about the cross. He told me he was compelled to stop there, and give thanks. He said he signed your guest book, and put in a prayer request for me. I listened to your tape lastnight, and again this morning. I want you to know, I too am in tears, and once again your cross has pointed to the Lord Jesus. God Bless You. LittleElk@Excel.Net


This was amazing and beautiful. I only wish the writing had been in a darker shade so I could have read what was written also. Thank you! Carolyn Cain Cainmama2@aol.com


Hope to visit the cross some day soon.BEAUTIFUL granny-mcgowne@wcc.net


My husband and I were going home to Bakersfield,CA when Jack saw the cross off HWY 40 and we stopped to see what it was about and we were at awe and could feel GOD'S presence. We enjoyed the spiritural experience for the first time in our lives. We will tell very one about this beautiful place and to visit when they get a chance. I know that we will return again to visit with GOD'S Blessing. Jack Rodriguez:paparod@bak.rr.com & Rosa Rodriguez:rrodriguez7@bak.rr.com & rorodriguez@grimmway.com


dcliftonstar@aol.com This is awesome. Thank you. I hope to visit the cross someday.


THAT CROSS LOOKS LIKE IT SOMETHING I HAVE TO VISIT NEXT TIME I AM IN TEXAS. meweeta@aol.com


This is truly an amazing and beautiful project you have undertaken to bring glory to Jesus and to show us a glimpse of what he endured for us. Thank you, Pam Machu


When a group of us came back from Oklahoma last weekend, someone in our van suggested seeing 'the Cross'. The site in Groom, Texas was truly exceptional! The details were incredible! The pictures at this website are beautiful and inspiring, but to see it up close and personal, I was truly in awe! It has captured God's heart and I know the Lord is very, very pleased! authority_in_christ@yahoo.com......Carmen Page

We have stopped at the Cross several times and enjoyed it more each time. It is absolutely AWESOME! I did not know about this website until a friend sent it to me today. This is really neat! Thanks for a great experience!


Awesome! Loretta Adler ladler1@comcast.net


I was traveling back from New Mexico to Fayetteville, Arkansas with a prisoner that I had bonded out of jail and was taking him back to jail in Fayetteville. We stopped at your site and was in awe of everything. When we left we talked about it all the way back. Prior to arriving at the jail we stopped at my pastors home. They invited us in to eat supper. We were leaving and I was going to have them say a prayer for him, but before I could say anything he had already say can you pray for me, and right there in their living room he dedicated his live back to the Lord. Thank you for your awesome cross site. I love it and I am going to tell everyone I see that they have to go see this wonderful place. My God richly bless you in your work of lifting up the Lord. Love you Ronnie Schader. E-mail rdawg57@yahoo.com.

This is a beautiful web site. It really makes you realize what Jesus did for us. May God bless you real good. maggie.roberson@sbcglobal.net


What a way to start my day when I opened your website. The music is awesome. What an inspiration! Jan Martin jcmartin7@yahoo.com


We have been to the CROSS three times and every time we feel as though we can't do enough to spread the word. We only wish everyone had the chance to see and experience what we have. We always stop no matter what time of the day it is. You will always be in our prayers. Charlie & Jeni Stewart


My wife and I have been to the Cross twice. With our church family and just this last week with the couple who introduced us to each other some 47 years ago. We tell everyone we know about it and will be back again as more is added. May God continue to Bless the Thomas family and the Cross Ministries. Gene and Pat Hale, Amarillo gene1631hale@webtv.net


We were on our way home from Russellville Arkansas when we noticed the cross towering over the countryside. We were about 5 miles out and feeling drawn to it, were compelled to turn our car around and found our way to its location. We definetly felt His presence when touring the site. One of our pictures of the cross actually came back from the developers with a very red glow around the cross and we do not believe that this was an accident as none of our other vacation pictures had this. This will be quite a conversation page to add to our scrapbook. Thanks to all that were involved in creating this wonderful monument to our Lord. God bless, Dennis & Shirley St. John


I just wanted to write and say thanks again for such a beautiful and sacred place! My fiance and I stopped there on our way back to Iowa in 2003 and we were very moved. I now have a Christian group on yahoo and I have added y'all as a suggested link! I hope that many will look into the web site as well as someday pay a visit there! I know they wouldn't regret it! :) God bless you all! I look forward to being able to afford to come visit there again someday! lovin_city_life@yahoo.com


Since I have found this Web Site, I visit almost daily. It gives me courage to face the day. I currently am caring for my aged parents. My Dad is 88 and my Mo is 82 and suffers from Altzheimers and can no longer cook and do for them, so I do it for them. Tonight my oldest Grandson will graduate from High School and then in Aug. he will report back to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri to complete his AIT and then on to serve his Country. God gives me the strength to go on. and Your Web Site is wonderful I have been to the Cross and know just how great it is and the Grandson I speak of was with me. He will get to see the Cross again next week when he goes back to New Mexico with his Mother to spend some time with her before going off to the Army. Thank you so much for the awesome Cross and this Wonderful website. ghallx3@aol.com

My sister drove from Florida to L.A. and passed the Cross on the way... She brought back for me your t-shirt with the Cross on it with the verses on the back... It is beautiful... I had to wear it Saturday night when we went out to eat... My sister said it took her breath away when she saw it... I can believe it as I had to take a deep breath when I saw the t-shirt... I sent your url to a big list of folks in my address book... I have really had great feed back from my Pastor and other Christian friends... May God richly Bless you and everyone who had a hand in making this possible... In God's Love, Annette Rye aka locomom@webtv.net


We visited the cross a few days ago. All I can say is WOW ! AWESOME ! GOD BLESS Chris and Tracey Reese


You have truly done a great thing. My parents were on vacation and told me about The Cross, so I found your site. What a wonder trip I took this afternoon. May God Bless each and everyone of you who took part in this awesome task, it truly is a blessing. Thanks again for sharing with the whole world. Sheryl Batchelor sb101@bellsouth.net


God bless you! We live a few hours away and see the cross annually during our trips up north. It has been amazing to see each of the changes every year! Thanks!


This is wonderful. annetteweisbrod@sbcglobal.net


Fantastic!! kookieman@sympatico.ca Evangelist R. McLean, Toronto, Canada


sandytilley@hotmail.com My visit to the Cross was breathtaking. We stopped there on Easter Sunday on our way to see the Grand Canyon and wanted to find a church. My son in law saw the Cross from the distance. We kept on until we found it. When My daughter, son in law and I walked up the stairs to the three crosses. We started to cry. We are Christians and this made the whole trip worth while. In fact this is the greatest topic of the trip. Even better than the Grand Canyon. Which is one of Gods Creations. Thank you so much for your work.


WOW what a wonderful tribute to Jesus. Thank you.


I am about to take a trip with my family to salt lake city (from austin, Texas) and we are going to make the "stations" a priority on the way! A friend told me about it and I can't wait to see it! I was hoping to see pictures of it...are there any on a website that we might look at? Thank you and we look forward to the experience! Nichole Gess ngess@hotmail.com


Delight Full Decor-Great site! keep up the good work.


My Father helped build this! I am so PROUD to be able to say that. I can't think of a more beautiful way to be reminded of him. It's a blessing to find this website and be reminded of how I felt when I saw the Cross and the Stages of the Cross, the day of my Father's funeral (March, 2003). I miss him, and this has just given me a way to feel connect to him again, at a time when I need him most. Finding this site could not have been a coincidence. My father was not a church going man, but in the end, he believed in God and in moments like this. God Bless you all. God Bless my Father. Rhonda S. Bush (Bodensteiner) KC, Missouri


I just realized that I forgot to tell the world who my father was. LEO WILLIAM BODENSTEINER. Son of Gregory and Agnes Bodensteiner, Ossian, Iowa. He lived in Texas for over 20 years. Father of Rhonda Bush and Annette Bjork. It would do him proud to have known that one day his grandchildren would be able to see such a touching geographical spot and to be able to get on any computer anywhere and view what their grandfather helped to create. In Awe right now, Rhonda Bush (Bodensteiner) Rhonda_4573@comcast.net


I really enjoyed the site. It is a wonderful site to see. May God truely Bless you. Demetric Bills Hugo, Ok


I just had to write again and tell how wonderful the CROSS really is. I get  on line first thing of morning and check E-Mail, then go to the Cross for inspiration the  Music is wonderful and gives me strength to start the day, I care for my elderly parents Mom 82 ( Altzheimers) and  Dad 88. Your Cross gets me through the day and I often come here in the late evening  just  to reflect with the Cross. Thank you so much for your website.
I am a long haul truck driver and I have been there several times now. And each time is a more moving than the last. My husband, who is a non believer, was even moved. I got there for spiritual uplifting and it helps me through rough times. I got weather it is day or night, or sunny or raining or snowing. When ever I got by I need the lift I go. The Lord will provide. I am so thankful for this place. God Bless the builders. Thank you and God Bless, The Rigdon Family-Machine Gun, Dutchess and Brutice 

My sister and I are going to Oklahoma and will be coming home on I-40 would you please tell me how to get to the cross from I-40. I have heard of this wonderful place and would like to see it on this trip. And also do you have a web site that shows a picture please let me know these answers to these question's as we are leaving here the 12 of July we live in California. Thank you and God Bless, Elaine Killian

I have traveled across Texas many times and each time I passed through Groom, TX I saw from the interstate, the largest cross in the world.  Each time I said, "I'll stop next time".  On June 30, 2005, my wife and I stopped.  It was awesome to say the least.  After we arrived home, I discovered the web page.  It is a great site.  I was glad to know more about the construction and size of the cross.  Even more important than that is the testimony of God's love for man kind.  Thank you for all that you have done.  I pray that the cross will be a beacon of light for lost humanity for years to come.  Jim and Margaret, Phoenix, Arizona

My husband is a truck driver on his way to California, when he saw this huge cross.  He said he saw it for about 15 miles before he was actually at the site. The stopped to see the cross & it brought tears to his eyes.  He called me to give me the e-mail address, so I could see it.  Since I have sent the address to other family members.

 
Thank you for the blessings we received.

I have visited the cross in Texas a number of times, and what an inspiration it is. We just discovered a couple of weeks ago that my Mom has pancreatic cancer and the Dr's has already hooked us up with Hospice, so we know what is going to come, her nephew in Texas age 46 is also suffering from the same dreaded cancer, The Cross website brings me comfort as I go through my day of caring for my Mother and Dad. I go to this website and play the music. through out the day and it gives me great courage. Thank you so much for allowing me to share my heart felt feelings again and again. July 15th, 2005    Sghallx3@wmconnect.com


I am so glad I found your site on the web.  I have to tell you thank you.
My ex-mother-in-law, my 15 y/o son and I took off on an adventure to Colorado Springs.  We were so tired driving back, but wanted to at least make it to Elk City.  I was praying God send angels to guide and protect us.  We saw that beautiful cross in the dark night and it was wonderful.  I knew then that God had heard my prayers and was watching over us.
I felt less tired and all of our spirits were lifted.  It was a gift from God on our long trip.  Thank you so much for your ministry!
Sincerely,
Jamie L. Copeland
P.S.  My mother-in-law, Karen Copeland would like for you to know how much that cross in the night meant to her, kklc@ionet.net

Traveling across country in our vehicle, we suddenly saw the most beautiful cross.  We pulled off the highway and took pictures of the cross and decided to go to the site after seeing the three other crosses on the hill.  How blessed we were to view the beautiful scenes of the days prior to our Lord's death and even step inside the man-made tomb.  How wonderful the vision you have shown to those of us who stumble onto this "holy ground".  Thanks for sharing your vision with us.  After arriving home, we pulled up your web site and can hardly wait to share this with our friends at Wicker Street Baptist Church.

God Bless All of you who constructed this magnificent recreation of the cross and of Christ's steps to his crucifixion.   My husband and I live here in New York and were touring across country when my son begged me to take a trip to see the cross.      Well,  we got there in January 2004,  and was totally in awe of such a beautiful and inspiring sight.    Thank you so much for sharing this meaninful cross with all who bypass it or visit it.    Its a sight to see !!!!!!!!    
 
Again,  thank you,
Bob & Bette Ticen   

This is a wonderful site. Maybe one day I will be able to visit Texas and see the cross. Loved the web site. I Have recently visited Israel. We walked the Via Dolorasa and visited the tomb.
I am a believer and was baptized in the River Jordan on April 1st 2005.
God had to have been guiding the people responsible for this work.
God Bless you, Betty Griffith     Bonita Springs,Fl.
I visited the Cross on my way back from California and used about three rolls of film. My friends that have seen the pictures are just amazed by it. It was truly an awesome experience that I would definitely want to experience again. I won't forget how I felt when I walked into the tomb. It was wonderful. It is a magnificent work of art, talent, and God. Thank you so much. God Bless! Megan Ryan
My son told me to look up the cross and I did and boy is it beautiful. He said you can get the most peaceful feeling when you pass by it, Thank you for the cross. Mary Shrader
I received an e-mail today with pictures of what you have done!  I can say that I have visited there on several occasions when traveling from California to Oklahoma or Utah to Oklahoma and would never miss stopping.  This is a truly inspiring place to visit.
Thank you.

On spring break 2004 my husband, 2 grandsons and myself came by the cross on the way to our ski trip in New Mexico.  I promised the boys on our return we would stop but we were in a hurry to gt home and was planning to go right on pass but our 5 year old said you promised us, so we stopped.  It was the most touching and best thing we could have done.  The 5 year old and 10 year old still talk about it. 
Were planning a trip with a group from church in Nov. 2005.

HI MY DAUGTHER, RENEE AND GRANDDAUGHTER ALEXIS CAME TO VISIT YOUR CROSS TODAY WHILE TRAVELING THUR AND IT WAS GREAT TO SEE AND HOPE WE CAN COME AGAIN TO SEE IT TOGETHER. THANKS ANITA JO WALTERS


It was only by the grace of God that I found this web page. So hard to put in words.

It was  the night of September 11, 2001. I had just received word that my father had a cardiac arrest and I needed to get to Las Vegas. All the flights were grounded so I had to drive. I was meeting my brother in Denton, Texas. I passed by the cross and the lights were shining on it and there were truckers parked everywhere underneath it. I felt so comforted. It was a very surreal experience.

 

A dear and precious Sister in Christ Jesus, sent me your website , in which she and her husband just visited The Cross in Texas, and I was just in "AWE!" and still am when I viewed it!!!!! It is so breath taking!!!! I thought that when my husband and I went to see "The Passion of The Christ", was breath taking and we cried all the way through, this site is "AWESOME!!!" When we entered into The Cross Ministries, we could actually feel the Love of God in it. Someday my husband Jerry and I shall visit it in Texas, for The Lord is both our centers of our lives together. He is our very foundation to our marriage. For after all this time, we have both, through The Lord, found our true Soul mates. We shall continue to pray for You and Your family and this Ministry that God has bestowed upon You for His Glorious and Divine Kingdom, as He has bestowed upon us our Ministry, "The Living Waters." Thank You and God Bless! Love Continues in Christ Jesus, Your Sister & Brother, Linda and Jerry Smith Millville, N.J.


God Bless all involved in building this religious site in Texas. A message to all visitors to say a prayers for the unfortunate people in desperation from the New Orleans flooding. Let it be known how Lucky the people who believe in the Cross of Love will always
be in God's hands.   Rene Levassuer

Saw it from miles away the night of 9-10-05 and stood under it 9-11-05 (Sunday morning). A silent message that shouts to everyone that will hear. A bright light that draws people in. John

Dear Cross of Jesus:

You have now given us the Cross for the world to see and ask for forgiveness of our sins.
Me, I'm sorry Jesus for the hurt, help me help other people visit your cross and see how and why you died for us.
Your in Christ,

My wife and I had never stopped to take a look;

Yesterday – Oct 1, 2005 I was lucky enough to play music on sight with our church group for about 2 hours for a special Cross vigil / mass in Groom;

This place is breathtaking. We will be back soon!

Thank You for following through with your dream,

WOW, WOW, WOW, That is so beautiful. Now I will have to go and see it in person. What craftsmen , they are so blessed to do such  beautiful works of art of our LORD JESUS.  Thank you for this page.  Gillie Niggeler, TX


The Groom Cross has been such an inspiration to many of the truck drivers.  It a reminder to them of The Lord Jesus Christ. I think your website is wonderful.  Thank you for showing all the new things placed since I was last there.   Rhonda Pitts   smilie928@itlnet.net


My Husband, myself and our son a few years ago had the chance to see this awesome site, we just could not believe our eyes what we could see the cross so far away and it just kept getting bigger and bigger as we drove closer and closer, we where traveling with our horses and stopped and gave them a rest and you where so kind to let us take them out of the trailer to give them some time out, it was like God had called us to stop and see. I can tell you I cried the whole time we where there, and just could not take my eyes off the cross while we drove down the road.
 
Thank you for doing so something so nice as to keep us in the site of the Lord, Thank you and God bless you all.
 
I hope we get to travel down the highway again and can stop and see what else you have added..

I was searching, just searching for the "cross". Something to put on our thank you sympathy card. My part to do with my family. We lost my daddy recently on Oct 1, 2005. I always believed 3 times my charm so when I was searching the third try came to your website. I thought this is beautiful I can see it even without leaving where I am at now, perhaps one day. And with that I thought, “there must be a message on this for me at least in here. I searched / read and looked at the bottom .. Viewer no 91437 .. I felt a little rain coming from my window. (It rained really, really hard when I lost my daddy.) The 9 is me (my birthday month) .. The 143 is I love you. The 7 is my dad’s number. I wanted to thank you just a bit for what my heart just felt. And with a little half smile and hope one day I can go to the cross, an entrance/ gate/ link, and give a message to where my daddy is with Jesus ,Mary, Our Creator, and the Holy Spirt.

I would just like to say what a wonderful site you have here.  It has 
touched me in a very special way. Thank you so much for sharing this 
beautiful experience with me and I thank my friend for sending me to 
your awesome web site. God Bless each and everyone who visits this site and 
a special blessing to the people who made this web site possible, thank 
you.

God Bless From,

This past week we were on our way to Santa Fe N.M. when in the far distance we saw this wonderful Cross and marveled at it's size when we finally reached it. What a great  uplifting feeling after many hours of driving. It was even more impressive when we walked around, feeling the present of God. We only regret not having more time to spend in the presence of GOD.

Thank you for this wonderful healing experience. My husband, twin sister and I were on our way from Kansas, after attending to my son's Funeral . He had died unexpectedly and just devastated us. After stopping and walking slowly through the site I knew I would survive and healing started. "I wept as if I lost an only Son", meant a lot to me as I had just lost my only Son on Oct.5, 2005. I took pictures of the various Stations and of the Hollyhock. The blood red Hollyhock are beautiful and when developed show even more than seen with the eye alone. This was a very calming experience for me. Thank you so very much.. Carolyn, Santa Teresa, N.M.

Thank you so very much for the love and beauty put into these works. I know Jesus is so pleased with everything that everyone has done to help those of us that just go on everyday thinking the same old things, doing the same old things, till we see something like this. Maybe it will be as awesome to others as it is to me. Sure does make ya stop and think. Thank you again!!!!! Ann  "Lindsey Inspections" <lindseyinspections@earthlink.net


A friend and I stopped to see the cross during a long journey from Steubenville, Ohio to Flagstaff, AZ. We had no idea that the bronze statues of Our Christ were so mutinously done, along with the scriptures, Driving the rest of the way to Flagstaff all we talked about was the Cross. I just can't stop thinking about our visit and what an impression it made on my friend and me. Thanks for touching our hearts and soul with that amazing display of my Lord.

 May You and Yours be Blessed Forever,
 True Believers in Christ,
 Janet Roscoe and Mary Scott

I went to visit on a road trip with my family. It was very calming and made me feel like I was connecting with Jesus. I had a beautiful experience. Thank you and God Bless.  Here are the pictures I took. They came out so beautiful people ask me if they were postcards. I have them on my desk at work. You may click here to see my pictures.
Always,

We have been traveling from Iowa to OK, TX etc for over 20 years.  We had never noticed the cross or it being built until 2 yrs ago. traveling west, 
our daughter, granddaughter 5 & myself saw this beautiful, indescribable, incredible sight.  It appears seemingly as in the middle of nowhere.  
We have traveled abroad with the military since late 50's, this is comparable to so many wonders we have seen and experienced. It is almost as 
thou one has been forgiven all sins and given the privilege to witness a glimpse of Heaven  then allowed to continue being alive.  
This past June'05 my husband, granddaughter now almost 5 and I stopped and spent time there.  Thank-you for the gift.

My wife and I visited the cross during the Labor Day weekend 2005.  What an awesome & inspiring display!  If you're a believer in Christ this will touch you deeply.  Awesome website!
 
Fellow Christians, our nation is experiencing a moral decay like never before. The secular world is rapidly gaining ground in their quest to remove God and his likeness from all public venues, from removing prayer in school to removing the Ten Commandments from public arenas. We can no longer sit idly and watch the forces of evil trample over our religious freedoms which this nation was founded upon. We must act now to stop this appalling perversity.  Here's a few things YOU can do to help maintain this nation in God's good graces:
 
1. Read Pat Robertson's "The Ten Offenses".  Besides explaining how the Ten Commandments have become the "Ten Offenses", he also lays out his guidelines on what Christians can do to stand up for our religious rights.  Checkout his website at www.cbn.org.
 
2. Contact the American Center for Law & Justice at www.aclj.org.  The ACLJ engages in litigation and supports attorneys who are involved in defending the religious & civil liberties of Americans. This is a non-profit organization that does not charge for legal services.
 
3. Contact WallBuilders at www.wallbuilders.com.  This is an organization dedicated to the restoration of the moral & religious foundation on which America was built.
 
4. Pray for your elected officials. Contact them and remind them to ACT according to the U.S. Constitution. Remind them that the First Amendment to the Constitution NEVER intended to have separation of Church & State. Simply, the Supreme Court has taken power unto itself because the Legislative & Executive Branches of government have refused to act against these judges.
 
It's time to take America back for Christ. One person CAN make a difference; let it start with YOU right now.  Remember: THE ONLY THING THAT EVIL NEEDS IN ORDER TO TRIUMPH IS FOR GOOD MEN TO DO NOTHING.  - - "If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land" [2Chron7:14].  Blessings to all.   jess.giron@sbcglobal.net.

Thank you very much for allowing me the privilege of seeing this beautiful cross, my mother has been wanting me to see this for three years and finally on a trip from Weatherford, OK we decided to go. It was the most wonderful thing I have ever seen. The presence of god was felt the moment I got close to the cross and entering the tomb I felt the presence of the holy spirit right away. I am very grateful for this opportunity and cannot wait to take my husband and son and as many people as I can get to go there. May God bless you and everyone who enters there . Thank you again for this wonderful experience.

How awesome the cross is.I live in Amarillo and every time I go on I40 and see the cross I realize what an awesome God we have.

My husband & I were on our way back from our cruise across America and saw the Cross, we drove off the interstate and visited this amazing sight. Thank you. This Christmas my family and I are not going to exchange gifts, we are instead donating to your great cause. God Bless You.

I think this is wonderful and also the fact that it is able to stand without people rallying against it is great!!!

I never knew this existed.

Two years ago while I was passing through that beautiful land called Texas, on my way to Arkansas, I came in the presence of the cross. To use the word "awesome" (in the most biblical sense of God's awesome power, of course) would be an understatement. Truly the Lord has blessed the town of Groom Texas. Zachary Michalka


This has really been a wonderful experience to be able to see what can be done.   I hope to one day see it in person.  Thanks for the chance to know what God can do. ethel sladek  ejs12@earthlink.net

There are all sorts of visible artifacts that represent the Christ, the Son of God, but this one is uniquely different, drawing people from miles away. How blessed we are to have people like you who have taken extreme steps to accomplish such a marvelous attraction, the cross, the symbol of the risen Jesus. If only more of the lost would come to understand the life the empty cross portrays and Jesus' suffering for us. John Sedory, leoj@isp.com


MY FAMILY AND I HAVE BEEN TO THE CROSS TWICE NOW ON OUR WAY TO OKLAHOMA TO VISIT FAMILY. WE LOVE IT SO VERY MUCH AND WANT TO SAY A GREAT "THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS" TO EACH AND EVERYONE WHO WORKED ON THIS AMAZING CROSS. IT TOUCHES YOU EACH TIME YOU GO. NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES IT IS  YOU GO, YOU WILL BE TOUCH A DIFFERENT WAY EACH TIME. I AM FROM NAZARETH (TX), BUT HAVE LIVED IN NM SINCE '96. BUT I AM SO PROUD OF THE FACT THAT TEXAS IS THE ONE WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL CROSS AND THAT SO MANY COME FAR AND NEAR TO SEE/WITNESS IT'S GREATNESS. MAY IT ALWAYS STAND STRAIGHT AND TALL. AND MAY GOD ALWAYS BE IN EACH AND EVERYONE'S LIVES WHO COME TO SEE IT. WE WILL BE BACK TO VISIT EACH AND EVERY TIME WE GO THROUGH. AND WE HOPE TO BRING AS MANY AS WE CAN TO THIS GREAT SITE OF THE LARGEST CROSS IN  THE WORLD.  AGAIN "THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS ALL WHO HAD/HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH OUR LORD'S CROSS.      THE RICHARD HARRIS FAMILY     RUIDOSO, NM     freshdaisygirl@yahoo.com
A very awesome piece of art.  I, as well hope to visit

YOU ALL ARE ALSO THE MOST AMAZING HUMAN BEINGS.  NO ONE HAS EVER SPENT THEIR TIME AND MONEY AS WISELY AS YOU ALL HAVE.  MAY GOD CONTINUE TO ENLIGHTEN YOU ALL SO THAT YOU CAN CONTINUE TO SPREAD THE GIFT TO ALL OF US.

THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE-TRULY AMAZING

I was sent your site today and am so glad.  I am Catholic and since this is Lent, we walk the stations frequently.  I enjoyed all the pictures and of course the Cross.  Hopefully, in the future I will be able to “walk” your stations and see the Cross.

Thank you and all the people who participated in this creation.

Did you welders also make the bronze statues?  I would love to know who did.

Together in Christ,

Just read about your wonderfully inspiring tribute to our Precious Lord and Savior.  We will be in the area soon and will certainly go see it.  I pray our Lord will spare it from the terrible fires.  God bless you. "Jeanette Breedlove" <mbreedlove@austin.rr.com>
I don't think I will ever get to see "the cross" in person; but when I go to you web site I can feel God's presence.  I can just imagine how one might feel while standing in front of the real thing.  I pray that every eye that looks upon that awesome sight might feel the need to follow our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ.  We know that He went to the original cross to save us from sin.  It is His blood that washes away our sins.  May God continue to bless those who felt the call to build the cross and all the stations.
Your Brother in Christ,
Rev. Frank T. Davis

Unbelievable!  Breathtaking!

What is available in Groom, Texas for lodging?

I was told this town was hit with the wild fires, was there damage done to this specific area?

Is there more I need to know about when and how to visit?

This experience must be made in my life time.

I want so badly to make the trip! "Dubra Watts" <dwatts@crowley.k12.tx.us>


This site is awesome. Thank you for sharing God’s love and Jesus’ story with so many. "Woodard, Annette" <awoodard@sugargrove.org


Thank you deeply for this work you've done. God has been with you constantly, to give you the strength and courage to make the statement and witness. A testimonial to His greatness and presence in our lives. "bobpatrick" <BobPatrick@webtv.net


My husband & I are retired living in Mexico.  A friend sent me an email w/this site.  I checked it out...thinking "why haven't I heard of this before now?"  I have a daughter who lives in Panhandle....I just had to call her to see if this was for real.  You know, we get so much stuff these days that is a hoax but this isn't....the is FOR REAL..........PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!  And I know God is blessing you folks who built it beyond your imagination.  I am thinking of all those atheists that are trying to get the crosses removed from the highway that commemorate the deaths of our officers of the Highway Patrol......this ought to be a real thorn in their side.....Praise God...let's hope that cross reaches down and grabs each and everyone of them by the heart and turns them inside out.  God can and does do that.....this is so wonderful!!!  I hope I get to see it.  It really blesses my heart to know about this...what a witness.  Susan Henderson  lalin_h@hotmail.com 


A friend sent this to me and I'm ever so grateful to that friend. My husband and I will be planning to take a trip to Groom, Tx. This Cross is a must see for everyone so very awesome just like our great GOD. Thank you.  "Patricia Vaughn" <patvaughn234@yahoo.com>

They never will!! oh Thank you! It's so beautiful.  The Fisher's Dee and Ern
OH, WHAT A WONDERFUL TRIBUTE TO OUR PRECIOUS LORD. I JUST WISH THAT I COULD MAKE THE TRIP BUT I AM 87 YEARS OLD, BORN IN HOUSTON TEXAS IN 1918.

WOW! ! !   What a blessing it was to go through your site in the early morning hours today.  I'd just gotten my husband on the road (trucker) and came to check emails.  A friend had sent me the info on your site.  I only have dial-up Internet and normally anything with pictures is VERY slow....not this!  It all opened up SOOO fast that it was almost like turning pages in a book.    Again, such a blessing....even went on to do a little reading of your articles.  I only wish I could view all in person....maybe someday.  Thank you for your vision.  I know many hearts have been blessed and lives changed.  May God continue to bless your work! !   I will share this with my friends and family.

FRIENDS BENEATH THE CROSS,
 
    Very thankful for the message of the heart-touching cross along I 40, sent us by my brother and sisterinlaw in mexico.  We  have not been there, but the liturgy of many who actually viewed the Cross, is a hopeful sharing in a hurting world.  There is a clay cross hanging above the computer, quite visual with red marks on Jesus' arms and feet, to remind us of the "burning love of Christ crucified", to borrow some words of Saint Bonaventura, the person who continued leading the Franciscan Order after St. Francis' crossing over.
 How gracious of your reminding many pilgrims along life's road of hope in Christ's self-giving love and presence.  Muchas Gracias.
   Myron and Mary Emilia Yonker

I was especially impressed by your presentation of the hands holding the "pre-born" -- and hope it touches the hearts of many who need to understand....   kruseag@cs.com

We visited the cross at Groom just a year ago on a trek we made with my brother on Route 66 from New Mexico to Chicago.  That wonderful cross stood out on the horizon for miles, and though we did not think we had time to stop, we did stop and walked around the stations of the cross, then up the hill to the three crosses.  I had had double knee replacement in January.  This journey was kind of my emancipation proclamation, as I drove all 3500 miles of it.  The cross at Groom was one of the most special highlights of our trip.  We were revisiting photos of it just a few days ago!  It is an amazing testament to the Lord!  The Thornburgs   "MARGARET THORNBURG" <mcthornburg@msn.com>
I was sent this email from my wifes grandfather and it is the most moving thing I have evr seen, although in a little town in Eurika Springs, Arkansas I stood on a balcony of a hotel and viewed a whit stone statue of JESUS far off in the horizon and I felt like he was reaching out to me with his big open arms. I am not sure how far off it was but I could clearley see. Thank You for sharing your mission with me. Billy,  Magnolia, Texas
Awesome!!! I know the Lord will bless you for your great work.

I have just viewed your web site..... tears were in my eyes as I viewed the cross and all the stations..... God will truly bless your family for following the task he has given you!  I live in Austin, Tx., and plan on showing this to my pastors, I think it would make a great church group trip. Thank you again for following the lead of our Master!!!  What an Awesome God we serve!!!!!!!

What a wonderful website for us to experience the "Love of God for us."  A friend-coworker of mine mentioned to me  the beautiful site of "The Stations of The Cross" out in this area of Texas..  And I'm so grateful that she did, now I plan to share it with relatives and friends!  So they can admire and experience this beautiful blessing!  And oh my God, it has me in tears, I can just imagine the spirituality and blessings one can experience by visiting & spending the night in such a beautiful place!  Especially, those traveling by here and not knowing about it and suddenly it's at their site!  How wonderful, what great children of God, whose hearts were lead into doing this for mankind!!  A truly blessing for all of us!!  Muchas Gracias por el amor al projimo!!  "Teresa Guerrero" <teresa-guerrero@sbcglobal.net>
A very moving website and project.  Isn't it wonderful that the cross is empty?  Thank you, Charles of www.bibleone.net.

I've never been to Groom, I don't live far from there.This will be my main goal to go and visit this beautiful place. My daughter e-mailed me pictures and they are the most inspiring pictures I have ever seen. I've been asked if I go to church, and my belief is you don't necessarily have to go to church to believe in God. I believe God is everywhere you go. Thank You for this beautiful place to visit I will be visiting in the near future. Sincerely, Angie


Thank you for your wonderful site, here in Montreal we are facing a great problem with our mighty government, and I don't know if you could help?????? There is a CROSS that stands on top of mount Royal overlooking the city of Montreal, now because of some Moslems influence through certain politicians, they are pressuring the city to remove the CROSS which has been there since over 300 years, they are using the constitution, freedom of speech, and human right issues for their purpose,

I would like to say how beautiful the pictures were.  I received them today in a email from my Dad.  What a blessing and thanks to all who took a part in this.  What a great way to reach people and tell them about Jesus.  What a awesome place we live in, that we have the freedom to give credit to the one and only, JESUS CHRIST.  Thanks for the wonderful blessing and for doing God's work.  Keep it up. kriswoodall@earthlink.net  

Each summer my grandson and I travel from Arizona to Michigan and the view of the cross on our approach always takes out breath away.  We have stopped often and will continue to visit many times over.  God is so wonderful and the gift of his Son is all we need to help us in our lives. The cross of salvation is the constant reminder of His love for us. "miminanc" <miminanc@cox.net>
There are no true words to express how incredible and awesome the cross is.  Though I have never visited it, I truly have an amazing feeling just visiting the website.  Thank you so much for sharing.

The first time I had seen the cross was at night...and I know it glowed for miles...Instantly had the most spiritual feeling run thru my body...Had tears in my eyes...the most awesome thing I have ever seen.....  Dianne, Amarillo
What an AWESOME ministry you have!... I look forward to visiting it someday soon.

As a Catholic, I never see much of the Stataion of the Cross so this is the frist on the open road. I go to them at church all the time and they are so up lifting knowing what Christ did for us giving his life for us and caring the cross and then hanging from it as they beat him until we could not even know who he was. This is so for Thomas did not know him until he showed him his hands and the wholes in them. so the movie Passion is almost to the point were they beat him so. I thank you for this and if I get out that way were my grand father was from I will stop and see this. Thank you so much. Ann Davis Tuton.


Someone passed this to me and what a blessing this site is! This is awesome and  I want to see it and experience with my own eyes someday!  What a ministry ! AND  honor for our Lord Jesus Christ who gave ALL so that we might come to know him as our personal Savior and live with him eternally !!!!
 
I ask blessing upon all who's hands worked in this and still do today.... this adds light to this dark world we are passing though today...........and gives us some sight   to the glorious things our Lord has in store for us ahead if we just keep our eyes on HIM........
 
God Bless
 
thanks!
 
Ann / Augusta, Ga  
After viewing the Pictures and reading the inscriptions you cannot disbelieve that is a Jesus our Lord is in this world today.
 
I found the URL most elevating in my search for a closer with my Lord.
 
May the blessing keep flowing.
 
Have a good day and a better tomorrow.

I HAVE COPD A BREATHING PROBLEM THAT KEEPS ME FROM DOING NORMAL THINGS LIKE WALKING  OR STANDING TO LONG AT A TIME. ,SO THIS E-MAIL IS THE ONLY WAY I CAN VIST YOU. THANK YOU

I am so glad that there are people out there who are not afraid to show that they believe in Jesus Christ as being our Savior and that we are taken care of on a daily basis.... God Bless. "Wanda Brewer" <wbrewer@aliceisd.esc2.net>


I visited the cross at Groom by viewing the pictures  that were sent by friend.  I was moved by the pictures and the people who were responsible for the construction.  May God continue to bless this ministry.  I grew up in Borger but have not seen this cross.  I will try to visit there soon.

I grew up in Amarillo and wish I could be in the Panhandle right now to see our Lord's cross.  A friend sent me this website and I am so thankful for it.  Thank you and blessings upon you for this gift.

What a thrill to see what God has directed the minds of His people to do to proclaim His Life for all to see.  It gives me goose bumps and tears as I listen to the music and look at the pictures.  We want to make a trip this summer down to your area and see this fabulous display.  Thank you again.

What an awesome and beautiful task you have brought to completion! "Patty Tripp" <pattytripptwo@comcast.net

Awesome idea………….I just hope folks do not worship the structures, but, instead the message you all bring to this darkening world and, even more, especially the Messenger. I will get with my wife and we will pray about our support.  So many Godly organizations are asking for money.  It almost breaks us sometimes (but, we are not taking it with us anyway………….right!).

May God truly bless His/your message by this project(s),  "J. Scott Glazener, Sr." <scott@jscottglazenerinv.com>


WE HAVE SOME CLOSE FRIENDS IN SHAMROCK AND AMARILO, AND WE HAVE ALWAYS LOOKED FOR THE CROSS FAR OFF...AND HAVE STOPPED THERE MANY TIMES. AWESOME. GOD BLESS. JOHN W. SYRIOS, EVANGELIST

Dear friends,
    This was an awesome project.  I am happy for you all to have finished the placing of the parts, safely.  I will never get to see it in person, but I am glad I got to see the pictures.  I am 83 and look forward to going to my new home when He calls.  Praise the Lord.  May God bless you all.

Wow!  This cross is incredible and I'm sure that it touches many lives, including mine.  Thanks for your ministry.

I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO SEE IT SOME DAY. BUT DOUBT THAT WILL HAPPEN ANYMORE AT MY AGE.  SEVERAL YEARS AGO, WE WERE TAKING A TRIP TO CA, AND WE CAME ACROSS A LITTLE TOWN IN ARIZ, CALLED YARNELL, AND SOME LITTLE MEXICAN BOY HAD GONE UP INTO THE MOUNTAINS AND STARTED IN CARVING OF THE LAST DAYS OF CHRIST. HE WAS WORKING ON THE LAST SUPPER WHEN WE WERE THERE. IT GAVE YOU AN EERIE FEELING TO LOOK INTO THE TOMB AND SEE THE SHROUD, BUT THERE WAS NO BODY, AS HE HAD ALREADY RISEN FROM THE DEAD.  THE YOUNG MAN WAS 13 YEARS OF AGE AT THAT TIME. I DON'T REMEMBER WHAT HIS NAME WAS, BUT HE WOULD ABOUT 64 OR 65 BY NOW. IT GAVE YOU A VERY HUMBLE FEELING SUCH AS THE PHOTO ALBUM OF "THE CROSS" THAT YOU PUT TOGETHER FOR YOUR FRIENDS. THANKS YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR WONDERFUL WEB SITE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND I WILL REMEMBER YOU IN MY PRAYERS   
DOLORES ULRICH


THESE PICTURES JUST TOUCHED MY SOUL. AS MY GRANDCHILDREN WOULD SAY. AWESOME! THANK YOU FOR YOUR FAITHFULNESS TO BE OBEDIENT TO THE LORD. WHAT A WITNESS FOR THE WORLD TO SEE. I PRAY THAT ONE DAY I WILL BE ABLE TO GO THERE IN PERSON.
GOD BLESS ALL THAT WAS INVOLVED IN THIS PROJECT.

This is so very inspirational and brought tears to my eyes as I scrolled from page to page.  I hope that I will be able to see this in person.
 
God Bless you. "Sallie Snow" <sallieysnow@sbcglobal.net>
Praise God !!!!!!   I am so glad these are up and that America is
still respecting our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.... God bless you in
ways you never dreamed...You are speaking boldly of our Lord.
Certainly you are not ashamed of Him or the Gospel..
You blessed my day by putting this on the inter net....

The cross is also a spectacular sight from an airplane.  As I was flying from Amarillo to Dallas on a Southwest Airlines flight.  Our flight path was somewhat following Hwy 287 over Clarendon.  I could see the cross from the air above the Clarendon.  I thought that was pretty neat!!

What a beautiful job you have done! Having been a former construction engineer I can appreciate the work that went into this project.

Jack McDaniel    Kerrville


I'm so happy to see that you have a web site. Our last visit was in May 2004. Boy was it cold that day. I had planned on taking pictures but the batteries in my camera quit working. Had a very lovely visit the gift shop for both warmth and fellowship. Our first visit was in 1998 I believe. Have the pictures mounted on a board and displayed them at my church I pray that I'll be able to get back for another visit. John G. Willis,


What a wonderful sight. Thank you so much for making it possible for us to see it on e-mail. "Barbara Arnett" <moomoo2nd@earthlink.net>


AWESOME "WE SERVE AND AWESOME GOD"  This is my second time to surf through your web site. I'm glad that He is a rision Svaior and that He lives in my heart today. He died for me, can you believe that, a person such as I who is so unworthy...but by His saving grace I am made worthy. Thank You Jesus. God Bless all that had a part in the construction. jimsacco77@sbcglobal.net

A friend of mine sent me your website link.  Her son ,Jeff,  had taken a beautiful picture that you posted on your website. I remember the very First time I visited the cross you were not quite finished with all the stations. The work is absolutely phenomenal.  Walking around to each station Jesus walked on the way to calvary, I became so weak. I touched the face of Christ, I wept, I felt so unworthy. Can you imagine the suffering Our LORD went through for us. What a precious gift of "LIFE" Jesus gave to us, just for the asking.  Groom was such a perfect place for your gift. I think that whoever stops to see could never walk away the same.  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven,and on earth, and under the earth. And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. I feel that your Cross is one of the closest places to heaven on this earth. Thank you so much for all the beautiful work, and sharing your love for the Lord. Thank you for all you have done for the whole world to see. A friend in Christ, Thank you again, Sally  Silverton TX   "Sally" <sjg1224@midplains.coop>


I must confess that I never knew that such a place existed as Groom, TX.
The email that my niece sent to me containing the beautiful story of how the cross was built, the beautiful stations of the cross warmed my heart with the love of my beloved savior Jesus Christ.
I wish there would be a duplicate built of all that I viewed in every State. We need more and more of Groom TX sites in this world.
 
Thank you,
Yours in Christ,

A friend just sent me the link to your website, and the moment it came up, I was filled with awe and then began to cry, the more I saw, the more I cried.   The Holy Spirit is so strong, just viewing your site!   I will suggest to our pastor that our church take a trip there, to view it in person!   We live here in Texas and I had never had any idea that such a place existed!   Thank you so much for building and maintaining this Holy Place.   stephenson8002@aol.com  


I want to tell you how beautiful I thought this was...........what a sight to see as we topped  the hill of the vast desert.  We were by there before the last 2 stations were there and the large center was being built.  We were not able to stay to see the cross lite at night I am sure that is a site to see.
 
They have done a beautiful job in the additions.  We hope to get back there again to see more of the finished job.  We are about 3 hrs. away.  The trip would be worth it.
 
Thank you for this site.  We will keep checking it..

I just wanted to write you a note to tell you about our visit to your beautiful cross, we were just driving back from Bowring, Oklahoma 2 days ago (Nov. 19,2005) from visiting my dad, who is very sick, (his cancer has come back and he doesn’t want any more chemotherapy, radiation or operations). We had made this journey to see my dad (maybe for the last time) to share the gospel with him, to tell him about our Savior and how much He loves him and how He gave His life for him. Well, we visited, caught up on our lives, supped together and had a great time but, the subject really never seemed to get around to the cross. I was praying that God would give me the opportunity, the words and the boldness in which to share… but it just didn’t come... And then, it was time to leave… the goodbyes, the kisses, the hugs, the final pictures and feelings of not knowing if we’ll see each other again, possibly not even in heaven one day… well, I was feeling so down in spirit, like a failure and then we happened upon your cross… I had to stop, so, we pulled over our rented motor home and got out to take pictures… for 2 hours or more! Then, when we were ready to leave… our motor home wouldn’t start! We were literally broke down at the foot of the cross… which is where we are supposed to go when (in life) we feel “broken”. All the way home I was wondering what the significance of breaking down right in front of your cross was supposed to be…. and then it came to me as I was reading your story on the website… I am supposed to share this site with my dad… maybe some more “seeds” will be planted… maybe God will speak to him through your story… I don’t know… all I know is…  thank you for listening to that still small voice, for being obedient and not giving up… for your perseverance and love for the lost. With your prayers, maybe one more might be saved. Love in Jesus, Marcy in Lakeside, California~


Hello and a great big God Bless you to all!!!! My husband, four little boys and I visited this beautiful place in the summer of 2005. We were on our way home from a trip to the Grand Canyon. This was AWESOME and we were so very glad that we made it a part of our trip. We could see it from the interstate, but that doesn't compare to actually seeing it upclose and being able to walk thru and experience it in person. Thank you and please keep spreading the word of the Lord Jesus Christ to a world in need. Melisa Gregg, Arab, Alabama  "Melisa" <mgregg@otelco.net>


I have been to the cross at Groom twice in the last 5 years an am planning another trip very soon. Every time I go, there has been something else added.

Hello and God Bless. I have been to the Cross in Groom twice while crossing the country in a 18 wheeler, at that  time Buddy Pane was a guard there. I will never forget having the honor to see this cross.  We parked the 18 wheeler on the property on a cold winter night and at 3am I walked thru the whole area and I can't explain what I felt. At one stage of the Cross my Instincts was to lift the Cross up off Jesus when he fell for it seemed so real even at 3am.  I walked the steps to Calvary and  felt the Lord was staring down at me from that Cross. My Husband wanted so bad to visit and see this cross for himself but he  wasn't able to.  He died Jan 3rd 1999 sitting at the dining room table reading his Bible. He did get to see the post cards I brought home before he died. He is with the Lord now,
                 Like I tell people, if going to Groom Texas and seeing this Cross doesn't  touch your heart nothing will. God Bless all of you who built this wonderful tribute to the Lord..

Although I have not visited and just received the email about this cross I feel tingles in my body.  What a testimony to the truth of Christianity and the Word of God the bible only.  Thank you for sharing Christ.
Your sister in Christ Lia Haile
A school classmate sent me this brochure on e mail. I was shocked to see that it is so close to us and we have heard nothing in the news or anywhere about it. We will be making a trip to see the CROSS as soon as possible. It make chills run up and down your spine just to view it over the Internet. I sent the e mail to everyone that I knew. I am excited to see that you have done a great work for God in this project. I cannot even come close to a cost of a  project of this magnitude, but I know it was tremendous. But then when you think about it, we can never out give God. After all He gave His All, His Live for us.
 
I am looking forward to visiting the Cross because I know it is a gift of love to God.
 
May God Bless All Of You.....

What a gift to the American public!!  This is such and inspiration! (especially at this time of the year - Easter 2006).  Hopefully, we will get to experience this in person in the near future as we travel to the panhandle to visit family.  Thank you to all made it possible.

The website for Cross Ministries was e-mailed to me by a dear lady from my church.  What a beautiful,  loving website!  I will be forwarding this site to family, friends, and coworkers.  As I live not really too far away from The Cross (in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area), I definitely plan to visit.  Thank you, and God Bless.   "Linda Tijerina" <tij_texas@yahoo.com

THIS ILLUSTRATION/PHOTO/MUSIC AND ALL THE SCENES ARE SO
HEARTWARMING AND MOVING - I JUST CRIED TEARS OF JOY
Just thinking about our Savior-whom God sent through a Virgin-by wrapping
himself up in flesh and dwelling here on earth among men--------I often wonder-Lord
would I have been a skeptic as some were back in the bible days.  I would be so
overwhelmed to have walked with Christ--------------Just to behold his face is all I
ever desired to dwell with him and the Father and the Holy Spirit - all in one in that
beautiful Garden of Prayer called Heaven.  It is so gratifying to know that the Lord
cared enough about his dear children to give us a Savior - who takest away the sins
of the world by dying on "An Old Rugged Cross" which was made of wood/the
pain, the agony, that he experience just for you and I-----------------Oh what a price
to pay-----------------Oh what a wonderful God to do this for me------------------So for
ever I will give him all the praise and glory---------I worship him daily by giving
him thanks just for life and Jesus and offering him up the sacrifice of praise; and that
is by giving of myself to God/others and his holy and righteous name.

Oh how I thank you all for the book--------------for the very idea of building this cross
as a temple of Christ Sacrifice - the guest book/the videos/the gift shop/the 10
stations/all the monuments-----------------the tourist attraction - which is a ministry
in itself------------------------------------------IT WARMED MY SOUL AND TOUCHED
MY HEART AND I, AM  FEELING GOD'S POWER THROUGH AND THROUGH.
WE NEED THIS AND IT IS SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD SHOULD
EXPERIENCE.

'THE LORD HAS DONE GREAT THINGS FOR US;  THEREFORE-
FROM SUNRISE TO SUNSET PRAISE THE LORD
PSALMS 113:3 AND 126:3

AGAIN IN THE NAME OF JESUS
THANK YOU AND I HOPE TO VISIT THIS MONUMENT N THE NEAR
FUTURE- AND WALK UP THOSE STEPS TO THE CROSS - SO THAT I
CAN EXPERIENCE GOD'S POWER - A MIGHTY AND POWERFUL
FORCE OF THE LORD -----------------------HE DID IT ALL FOR YOU AND
I

FOR GOD SO LOVED THIS WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN
SON (JESUS)

AGAIN THANK YOU VERY MUCH---------------HAVE A BLESSED RESURRECT-
TION DAY

IN CHRIST

I visited the site online, and I cannot fathom
What it must have taken to do this. It is a
Wonderful presentation of Christ to all of us.
Thank you

I want to say Thank  You for  this beautiful experience in this Holy Week of the Easter season.  I will never get the opportunity to get there but I will certainly pray for it's continued inspiration.  God Bless each and every one who were able to make this a reality.   FD DAVISAllThumbs@aol.com  


I can only say Thank You Lord for giving us, such a wicked, sinning bunch, your only son so that we may be saved! I look at the stations and see the anguish on The Lord Jesus Christs' face and wish that I could take away some of his pain. But I know that I am nothing but a sinner and am not worthy of relieving some of Christs' pain... But, Lord--I wish I could.  I will be in heaven soon, and I look forward to expressing my thanks to The Lord myself. I am forever thankful for his gift of eternal life and wish that we could have received that gift without such a beautiful man sacrificing himself for us.  I can't seem to put into words what I feel, but I tried.
Thank you Lord,
Lovingly,
Steven Whitaker

There are absolutely no words to describe this.....awesome, beautiful, majestic.... just won't do it justice...and I've only seen the pictures...can't wait to see it in person...Another reason to be thankful that God bestowed upon us the privaledge of living in America!!!! While so many non Christians are fighting so hard to take Christ out of our lives, it is wonderful to see so many Christians working even harder to put Him back in our hearts where He belongs!!!!  "Kallie" <kns10@cableone.net>


I just wanted to write and let you know that what you are doing is so wonderful and inspirational. I've never been there. my sister e-mailed the pictures. I hope to visit one day. keep up the wonderful works of God.

I stayed in Fritch the 2nd night of the Groom Panhandle fires.  I traveled with the TEX-Vet 83 WELCOME HOME RUN down TX Vietnam Veteran Memorial Hwy 83 in March.  I’m Pres of the NE VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS MEMORIAL HIGHWAY 83, and rode in the support vehicle from Perryton to Brownsville with 60-100 bikers.  I had the directions to drive past the cross on the way home from Lubbock , but it rained all that day, so I drove straight home 11 hrs, and got here as the first of 22” snow hit the NE Sandhills .

It sounds like many bikers visit your cross.  I’m impressed.

www.veteransmusicministry.com

I give healing heart medals to Vietnam/Era-Korean war Vets…the Prodigal sons, and say and sing ‘welcome home’ at biker rallies, rides, tributes, reunions and traveling walls.  The bandaid represents the highway Vietnam/era Vets put signs on in NE

It looks like a wristwatch, meaning it is TIME to welcome these Vets home

It is polished like the walls I visit

It is God’s healing touch for whatever ails them

It is their pewter healing heart from their little sis in NE

I touch their heart as I give it, sometimes I pin it on

I always have an extra chair along..

I think I’m the first ½ step to soften up hardened hearts to open their ears for Pastors, etc

What a beautiful way to start Good Friday. This was the first e-mail I opened this morning. The pictures were beautiful and awe-inspiring, We hope to travel from Houston to Groom to see it next summer. May Our Lord bless you in your ministry, Walter O. Huffman


My husband and I saw the cross as we were headed to Arizona in October, 2004.  It was truly an awesome experience.   When we first saw it we anticipated it would be just a few miles down the road.  The visibility was excellent that morning and it must have been a good half hour we kept our eyes on the cross.  It was beyond all our expectations that it was so huge.  We were expecting it to be the size of a utility pole.  We came back home the same way so to get a closer look.  We hope to go back again when we aren't on such a tight schedule and spend more time when the visitor's center is open and take some pictures.
 
God bless each and every person involved with this fabulous project.
 
Helen Mapes, Des Moines, Iowa    helenthewhite@mchsi.com

I just received an e-mail with the pictures & story of your wonderful project.  Thank you so very much for making it available to everyone.  I'm sure God's blessings continue to shower upon you.  Pastor Terry L. Adams, Sr.


Found the site very inspirational.  Just what we need during this Holy
Season when the world problems and religious wars are on the increase. 
We should all pray for the conversion of Moslems like we prayed during
the cold war for the conversion of the Soviet Union and Communism. 
Attached is a picture of the Pieta we took back from Rome in 1963 after
having an Audience with Pope Paul VI. Joe Molinaro/Syracuse, NY 

My comment is that your Cross has been around since 1995 and today is my first
knowledge of it. A friend sent the e-mail to me. It is awesome to look at and I would think that an 'in person' look
would be the best.  Thanks for building it.

I hope and pray that I can get there to see this awe inspiring sight before I go
 to meet my Lord in Heaven.
 
James W. Glidden. MSgt, USAF(Retired)
This is totally awesome.  Unbelievable!  What a testimony to all who travel by it.  God bless you and you family for having the foresight and faith to get behind such a phenomenal project.  What a blessing it is.
 
God bless you as you serve Him

Just made my first visit to this site.  It surely won't be my last.  Beautiful!


What a day to have discovered this awesome cross.  I will make the journey someday but for the time being I will keep this site open
to enjoy.  Ethel Payton, Texas

A very dear friend sent me this website to view. All I have to say is THANK YOU JESUS, THANK YOU JESUS, THANK YOU JESUS. Yes we do more of the wonderful Cross over all of America. Back to the country our forefathers wanted it to be. Love for our Heavenly Father. "bobbie rodgers" <bobjan98@yahoo.com>


These pictures are great, my husband spent about 2 months in Groom Texas as a young man,visiting the Britten family, We visited them as a family some years ago. Wish we could see this in peron, but we cannot go that far now that we are elderly.

I wasn't aware of The Cross until it was E-mailed to me.  It is truly a beautiful sight.  I look forward to seeing it in person when I travel to Oklahoma in the near future.

The Cross is just a wonderful place - thank you for all the time and effort to create this beautiful sanctuary.
We were blessed to have a beautiful day to visit and I think this picture expresses that.
Thanks again and may God bless you and your ministry.

This is truly amazing.  I cried through most of the pictures.  When I read you were in Groom Texas immediately I thought how appropriate.  The Word says the Body of Christ is the Bride of Christ and Jesus is the Groom.   Praise God.  Smaycumber@aol.com

GOD BLESS,

My husband and I saw this cross from a distance many times when we wintered in Arizona from Indiana, but never saw it up close as these pictures show..I think our son did, thought, and will forward this to him...bless whoever sent this to me...I'll have to back up to see who did....love the music also...I am now in assisted living in Green Valley, Arizona.....emorris5@triconet.org  my husband was deceased in 2001.

I really enjoyed this site.  I saw all the hard work that went into arrecting this cross and I think it is a moving experience to see it on the site.  I hope to see this cross when we visit Amarillo.  I am very glad that a family member shared this website with me.  I cant wait to see the cross at night.  I already had a very moving experience and I know that seeing it in person will be just awsome.  Thank you all for making this experience for me!!!!!!!  Debbie-Illinois   "Debbie Wade" <dwade1961@sbcglobal.net>


SOME ONE E-MAIL ME THIS AND SOME FRIENDS AND I WANT TO COME THERE TO SEE IT UP CLOSE. THANK YOU ,

Some Atheist group is trying to get our town to remove our lighted cross
from top of our water tower, what a joy it would be to have one of this to replace it.

This is AWESOME.  "Marcia Davis" <davismb@shands.ufl.edu>

My name is Ryan Ray and I live in Amarillo Texas.  Me and My Family check out the cross a lot. Every time I get to feeling like I am not doing something right I always try to make a trip to the Cross and confess my sins. Each time I come back to Amarillo a changed man & I am thankful. To the crew that built that lovely cross. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Also to the Ministries may god bless each of you. Hopefully when I am back down there I will support the Ministries in someway by either buying a shirt or hat.
Thanks again for everything that I have seen..

My grandparents live in Amarillo, so I hope to visit there again soon.  Our 3 year old daughter had a heart transplant 1 1/2 years ago, so travel has been limited.  The next time my husband and I, along with our two daughters are in that area, we will stop by and look at the amazing work of God.

Thank you so much for what you have done, to display our precious Jesus for all the country to see. To remind us there is still hope and that there are answers with him.
I love you JESUS!!!!!!!!

You have created a wonderful tribute to our Lord and Savior...I thank Him for your  devotion to Him, a quality we see fading in our world, but with people like yourselves, we know hope is still alive.There is a place near Uniontown, Pa. about 8  miles from Shanksville,Pa. where flight 93 crashed on 9-11, that has a the 3 crosses on a very high hilltop and at night it is lighted and most beautiful..My husband's job takes him there evrey week and we got pictures from there and I just know the wonderful feeling we get when viewing a site such as this! I will certainly pass this site along to friends to just see the beauty and listen to your beautiful music!      Thank you, Rita/Pa.

PRAISE THE LORD.  What a beautiful inspiration, dedication, and love that were placed upon each and every one that put this together for all to see and enjoy.  I live in Seattle , WA and we are in the process of making our journey back home [ Texas ].  We plan to make a peaceful trip [with all who want to go with us] to this wonderful and beautiful place that OUR LORD has created.  Thank you all for your hard work in putting God's plan in action.

p/s...thank you for the beautiful pictures

God Bless You,
