A Note from the Publisher - Debbie Slusser 

   There is so much hope in our community. Many people are doing great things to help those in need. The pages of Beyond the Gates are filled with encouraging stories — stories that show you the goodness here and now, available if you seek it.
God created an amazing world. He gives us instructions in His Word to help us live healthy lives. Faith is key to living a joy-filled and peaceful life. Hebrews 11:1-2 tells us, “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
We are heading into our eighth year. What a beautiful experience to see the light shine in our community through our families, friends and neighbors. The healing power of God - when unstoppable Faith meets any struggle or any diagnosis.
   To those who may need a little encouragement, it is here. Turn to God as your strong tower. He will guide you. Persevere; you will reach the finish line triumphantly.
     With faith comes hope. Just believe!
Remember, always keep your faith, prayers work
and miracles really do happen.
