Garden Of Hope in Covington, KY.
Not many people in Kentucky and the Cincinnati area even know that it is there!!! We are gonna go back when WEBN have their fireworks... You can see every thing up there.


This statue was shipped over from Naples, Italy in memory of a gentlemens wife. The tour guide told us that it appears that Jesus is watching all of the Northren KY area because the statue is faced in the direction where it can see the skyline as shown below in the pictures.

Some of the very stones in this wall are stones from the road of Damascus where Saul was converted to Paul.

The inside of the church. The chandelier and candle holders on the wall where stolen once out of the church and sold to a pawn shop. Needless to say they got them back because Property of Garden of Hope was engraved on them! The marble slab that is on the floor is from the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus preached from.

On the tombs of followers of Christ in that day... This one is Jesus'... It basically says that he is the Alpha and Omega. Not just a follower but the Christ. It is a tomb's equivalent to a Christian meeting place marker called Ichthus.

This is a symbol for a pagan God.

Thank you for telling us about your visit to the Garden of Hope and for sharing with us those wonderful and awe-inspiring photos.

I wonder if you would allow me to use those photos in a magazine in the Philippines so that Filipinos will get to know about this holy place. Proper acknowledgment will be made.

Again, thank you and God bless.
