Welcome to Paradise Island
Almost Heaven Gift Shop
A 30 ton boulder that appears to bear the image of Christ in prayer is the focal point of Paradise Island of Christian, WV. The rock was unearthed in 1985 during a routine blasting at Arch Coal at Logan, WV. The rock crashed to the foot of the hill, landed bottom heavy and wedged into smaller rocks, the front of the rock felled off and inside was the imaged of Christ praying up toward heaven. Jim Holstein drove by and discovered the picture of Christ praying on the rock. It's a side silhouette of Christ, of his head profile, from his hair up, with his face tilted up toward heaven.
Thousands of people have view this rock from as far away as Paris France, Australia, Africa, Pueto Rico, Netherlands, Canada, and from all over the United States. The 700 Club will be doing a story of this in the near future.
