Would you keep the following in prayer?
Joan Vitale, our Elizabeth director asks prayer for her mom who has a pancreatic problem. The doctor has said it could be either a stones blockage or pancreatic cancer. She will have tests done this day. Joan shares this verse - Jeremiah 33:3: 'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.'
Fran Drenth's mom went to be with the Lord last night. Fran (sonographer) and her husband Dave (male counselor) faithfully served in Elizabeth.

We praise the Lord for a great banquet last night.
254 people helped raise the 2nd highest total in Gateway history!
In 2000 when 469 attended our banquet with Elisabeth Elliot, Gateway raised $44,000 (after expenses).
This year Gateway raised $34,500 (after expenses) with a crowd almost half the size! Praise the Lord!.
Six people accepted our $1,000 challenge.
Thank you for all who greatly helped make this a success, especially Dr. Alveda King, the Westbrook's, Dorothy Booker, Joan Vitale, Ursula Berty and our wonderful table captains.
Further details will follow in our newsletter and on the Blog.
Blessings in Him, Dean

Background information on Dr. Alveda King
ATLANTA, Aug. 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- On this, the 45th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, Priests for Life Pastoral Associate Dr. Alveda King released the following statement:
"Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man of God, a man of great compassion, and a man of non-violence, once said, 'The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.' I know in my heart that if Uncle Martin were alive today, he would join with me in the greatest civil rights struggle of this generation – the recognition of the unborn child's basic right to life.
"My uncle Martin would agree that we cannot end poverty, hunger, or suffering by killing those who might suffer. We cannot claim to guarantee equal rights if we deny the rights of the helpless. And we cannot feign ignorance of the fact that those who are torn apart, crushed, or left to die on an abortionist's table are just as human as we are.
"My uncle said that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. There is injustice in our land. We have turned being unwanted into a crime penalized by death. Today, I echo the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – let freedom ring. From every mountain top, let freedom ring for all Americans, wanted and unwanted, born and unborn."
