The following are comments by Roger at Guidestar (I REALLY LIKE THIS GUY!)
The National Prayer Garden is nothing more than a BLOG and LEGALLY CANNOT solicit or accept ANY charitable donations via its BLOG!
The National Prayer Garden lists its “physical address” as Welcome MD - BUT the “prayer garden” organization does NOT OWN ANY PROPERTY IN WELCOME!
It only has a P.O. Box—WHO is paying the P.O. BOX rental fee?
DON’T BE MISLED BY THOSE AT THE BLOG WHO MAY GIVE THE IMPRESSION THAT THERE ACTUALLY IS, OR WILL BE, A “PRAYER GARDEN”!
THERE IS NOTHING THERE - IT’S A PIECE OF LAND THAT WAS USED FOR GRAVEL EXTRACTION FOR OVER 20 YEARS!!
~~ WHY IS NPG STILL A TAX-EXEMPT 501(c)(3) with the IRS?
——Shouldn’t the IRS be informed that the NPG consists of nothing more than a BLOG???
~~Whatever happened with the $33,750.00 that was “donated” to the NPG, which NPG’s attorney, Steve Scott, is supposed to be holding for NPG??
~~ ~Were any “donations” used to help Edak Eyo and “Pastor” Kayode Peter purchase their $699K house at 6380 Mason Springs Road in Charles County, Maryland? (Maryland Tax Assessment)
~~~Is it possible these funds were provided by “corporate interests” such as:
- Construction Resolutions (owned by NPG’s Project Manager, Bill Murray)
- Cleaners of America (owned by NPG’s Elder Paul Mederos and Sister Angela Mederos)
- The Faux Group (owned by NPG’s Land Planner - Patricia Faux)
- Scott Law Group (owned by NPG’s attorney, Steve Scott)
- Jim Whitehead (NPG’s Civil Engineer) of ATCS PLC
- Kenneth Copeland Ministries
~~~ Is it possible that NIGERIAN interests/investors are involved??
~~~ IF NPG is still planning to construct its RESORT COMPLEX (under the guise of “religion” ) in the future, NPG would have:
- - to purchase the land (currently priced at OVER $1.5M),
—get the ZONING CHANGED from the current Agriculture zoning,
—request COUNTY & STATE PUBLIC HEARINGS,
—obtain the necessary permits from the STATE AND COUNTY,
—UPGRADE the State and County ROADS (MD Rt. 6 & Gunston Road) leading to the location,
—install a sewage treatment plant AND MAINTAIN IT to prevent sewage overflows, AND in the event of a sewage overflow, NPG would be held legally responsible for cleaning up the Nanjemoy Creek.
~~ NPG would ALSO be required to obtain a STATE PERMIT for WATER withdrawals, AND establish an “escrow” account to pay for new wells for residents with private wells in the area who may experience water supply difficulties/shortages because of the THOUSANDS OF GALLONS of groundwater the RESORT COMPLEX would withdraw DAILY for the hotel, lazy river and golf course!!
~~~WHERE WOULD NPG OBTAIN THE MONEY, NOT ONLY TO BUY THE LAND AND BUILD THE RESORT AND UPGRADE THE ROADS LEADING TO IT—BUT WHERE WOULD IT OBTAIN THE MONEY TO MAINTAIN THE FACILITY, INCLUDING THE SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT?
~~~ Operating as a “religious” 501(c)(3) organization (which is HIGHLY questionable), does NOT EXEMPT IT FROM UPGRADING THE ROADS, OBTAINING THE NECESSARY STATE AND COUNTY PERMITS, OR FROM ADHERING TO STATE AND LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS!!
Ask yourself, does this sound as though it would be an innocent “prayer garden” OR a resort complex that would financially benefit a few interested “investors”??
ISN’T IT INTERESTING THAT NO ONE FROM THE NATIONAL PRAYER GARDEN ORGANIZATION WILL ADDRESS/ANSWER ANY OF THE QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS RAISED HERE?
DOES THE NPG ORGANIZATION HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE?
