After 39 unsuccessful European attempts to establish a colony, Rev. Robert Hunt and 104 others landed on the beach at Cape Henry, Virginia. Eager to learn what lay beyond the shore, they set out to find gold without giving thanks to God or praying over the land. One day after their arrival, two men were shot by Indians. The company then realized their next course of action. Led by Rev. Robert Hunt, the colonists followed the example in Nehemiah 12 with a Godly dedication. They worshipped, fasted, asked for forgiveness and dedicated Virginia-America, (at the time all of North America) to God. On April 29, 1607 they erected a cross and held a service that included the reading of Deuteronomy 8. Rev. Hunt then led the colonists in this prayer as a Declaration of the Covenant with God: “We do hereby dedicate this Land, and ourselves, to reach the People within these shores with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to raise up Godly generations after us, and with these generations take the Kingdom of God to all the earth. May this Covenant of Dedication remain to all generations, as long as this earth remains, and may this Land, along with England, be Evangelist to the World. May all who see this Cross, remember what we have done here, and may those who come here to inhabit join us in this Covenant and in this most noble work that the Holy Scriptures may be fulfilled.” Today, at the Cape Henry First Landing memorial, stands a cross made to replicate the one settlers erected on this beach in 1607.
