New Billboards In Lexington Ask Drivers To Call God

It's not often we see a billboard along the road with a religious theme, let alone a message direct from God.

But a Lexington woman says she wants to help the man upstairs get his message across.

Pamela Honchell runs an ad agency in Lexington called Monarch Productions. She used her own money to contract for three new billboards that went up around town Tuesday.

Honchell says she felt a calling to create the signs and pay for them.

She hopes drivers will realize the message, and become closer to God.

Two clients have since stepped up to help with the billboard project.

Billboards with a similar message were put up along Winchester road last spring.

    I am pleased to see a prominent message that posts a message to remind us daily that GOD is here and is ready to take a "call"message from any believer at any time. We just neet to stop for a second in the busy day and praise GOD and thank Him. We will be reminded to stay in touch! I plan to help Pam with this project. Thanks very much for the news story.

    i think this was a nice and thoughtful thing that you did and lets all remember to pray for each other not look at each other's faults, GOD does forgive you know and he is so awesome!!

    First, I'd like to say 'Thank You' to WKYT for covering a story about something good going on in our community and I'd also like to say 'Thank You' to Pamula for doing something she feels God put on her heart to do. If we all tried to do more for God with our time, talents and finances we would find our community and our world a much better place. If just one person looks at theses billboards and is lifted from the dispair they may be feeling as they are driving through our city then you've done a good thing. Further, if just one person gives thier life to Christ through these Billboards then you've done a GREAT job. May God bless you Pamula and your business Monarch Promotions and may God bless WKYT for not being afraid to run a story that mentions GOD. Keep up the good work. To Joe: I'm Praying for you. To Paul: I'm glad the billboards made concerned about feeding & clothing the poor. Now that you have that in your heart -use your time, energy and finances to do something about it

    Ferg, True Christians do speak for God! since that is his call for our life's "to be an example of Christ" God has a call on each of us... Christian and non Christian... We all could use a reminder that God is calling us... but in many different ways, depending on our walk with him...:-)

    Lily,maybe youre schizo-How do you think the bible was written?If God didn't and dont talk to us how would the 10 commandments and other important verses in the bible be known?How would Noah have known how to build the ark?How would we know Jesus is the son of God,or even to have expected him to be born?You think God came down here and took up a pencil and jotted it down himself?Or maybe an email?You have no idea what you're talking about.Peggy's right,it's no respect,and maybe a tad of ignorance on the part of some.

    I think this is just great, if more people would take the time to do God's work the world would be a lot better place

    What amazes me more than anything is how many people on here actually speak for God. God says this, God says that, God thinks this, God thinks that. Are you sure? I know what I read in the Bible but I sure as heck don't speak for God. To condemn someone (Joe) for his posts saying "I am afraid he will not be seeing God with the attitude he has" (as Brenda stated) is totally ridiculous. How do you know who will and won't be seeing God? True Christians and followers of God's word don't condemn other people; they quietly pray for them. If you like what Pam Honchell is doing great; if you don't, that's another opinion. Thankfully, I don't need a billboard to tell me what I need to do with my spiritual life. As someone stated on here before, putting up signs or anything (like the Ten Commandments) for people to read won't make them a better person. We have signs posted on what laws you aren't supposed to break, but people do it anyway. You holier than thou's need a life.

    I am loving the bill boards, those that approved Sunday Alcohol sales need to read those and call on God for those decisions they make. By the way somebody get Joe a seat in Eastern State, I think he has lost it.

    Hey Joe, I tried to call you but it was kind of noisy. Were you in the bar again. It's ok Joe, I understand your sense of humor even if the other people don't. I don't think you blasphemed; a little fun won't hurt anyone. Yes, I do have a sense of humor...ever seen an aardvark or a platypus? Don't call me guys; I'll call you. Keep both hands on the wheel and I probably won't be seeing you soon.
