Ted_Audrey_nl.jpgOn Saturday, October 10th at approximately 3:50 PM, Ted was called home after several weeks of struggling with complications from congestive heart failure.  As his wife Audrey was praying, Father God spoke into her spirit that Ted is one of God’s Generals.  God had need of Ted to work with him to formulate strategies to establish God’s Kingdom on earth.

A Celebration of Life service was held on Friday, October 16th at the Beckett Event Center and graveside observance at Evergreen Cemetery with military honors. Ted was proud to have served as a Marine!  Many ministry friends and family members shared how Ted influenced their lives and ministries.  An additional celebration of Ted’s life memorial service will occur on November 15th in California.  A video of the memorial service will be made available on-line.

Ted was a man of bold vision and faith.  His successful real estate development endeavors provided both resources and a platform for him to powerfully demonstrate his Christian faith.  Owning his own business allowed Ted flexibility with his time.  Ted made himself available to be used by God in miraculous ways in more than 70 countries.

Upon hearing the story of God’s plan to build a Prayer Garden on the land the Becketts owned in Fountain, he and his wife Audrey, made a momentous decision (see link) to gift this $2 million property for a Prayer Garden.  What excited Ted were the Prayer Trails which are now functioning. His story about the Prayer Trails is on-line (see link).

Pray with us that ALL the Lord has in mind for Gateway Prayer Garden will be faithfully created for His 21st century Kingdom purposes.

Legacy_Prayer_Benches_nl.jpgIn a 7-0 vote on Tuesday evening, October 6th, the Planning Commission of Fountain, Colorado approved the preliminary plat for Gateway Prayer Garden.  We are awaiting approval of the Final Plat and Development Plan.

This decision is the next step in allowing us to move ahead with setting the modular building as a construction and security office and then begin the physical layout of more

than 300 stone blocks that form the perimeter of the ground Cross as Legacy Prayer Benches.  We will begin fabricating 77 Scripture Flagstone Tiles (in both English and a foreign language).

If you’ve been following our activities over the past three years and concurrent tussle with government, you’re aware that we’ve never asked for financial support.  Now is the time and your opportunity to partner with us to going to another level of bringing the Prayer Garden to reality.


Saturday, December 12th, from 2:00-5:00 PM is the date and time we plan to host you on-site in our newly opened Security/Construction building.  This time is based upon all the remaining approvals finalized from the city of Fountain and a helpful weatherman . . . !

We hope you can make it!  More details to follow soon and make sure you Like and Follow us on Facebook at GPG Facebook to keep up to date with our activities.

It’s an exciting time to be serving our King !
