National Prayer Garden
August 15, 2011

The National Prayer Garden is nothing more than a BLOG and LEGALLY CANNOT solicit or accept ANY charitable donations via its BLOG!

There haven't been ANY NEW POSTS OR COMMENTS at the Prayer Garden's BLOG for 3 months AND IT NO LONGER APPEARS ON FACEBOOK! - that could mean that: (1) it is no longer in operation OR (2) it is reorganizing.

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?


-- "Pastor" Kayode Peter portrays himself as a Christian, BUT at the Spokeo people search site, he is listed as a MUSLIM- not that this makes any difference regarding the "Prayer Garden"-- BUT it IS indicative of the many LIES the organization has told, starting with PASTOR PETER HIMSELF!!

~~ 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???



~~ ~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)
- Jim Whitehead (NPG's Civil Engineer) of ATCS PLC
- Kenneth Copeland Ministries

----- Doesn't it appear SUSPICIOUS who these"corporate" supporters are, and WHY they "support" this resort complex???

~~~ 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?

THE EVIDENCE IS CLEAR --- THE NATIONAL PRAYER GARDEN IS A HOAX AND A SCAM!!


The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My research uncovered many improprieties and claims that were not true

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

FULLY DISCLOSE ON ITS BLOG THAT IT CANNOT ACCEPT OR SOLICIT DONATIONS FROM THE PUBLIC!!
